    Naw, I de-milled this horrid thing years ago! It was in horrid condition - didn't want anyone to be tempted to shoot it ever again.

    Yours is, no doubt, in far better condition than this one - and is probably a genuine S&W as well. This one is not, its a "U.S. Revolver" S&W clone that somebody put real S&W grips onto. U.S. Revolver was Iver Johnson's economy (!!) line...

    By any chance did you check on the value of those grips^^^

    I have 2 S&W top breaks and one is almost pristine.  The second one is... "not"... 

    Took a little tinkering but I got the "not" one shooting just fine with a little judicious Gunsmithing.  It's a thing with me, I can't stand knowing there is a broken gun anywhere near me and not do something about it.  My own personal OCD trait?

    Originals in good condition do bring a premium.  AND there are repro Iver Johnson grips out there in case you decide to make a few shekels on eBay selling those.

    Nothing says "Good Morning!" like an F-16 doing low altitude high-G turns over your house.  The Thunderbirds are in town for an airshow this weekend, this morning they were out doing some practice runs.
  • zorbazorba Senior Member Posts: 24,683 Senior Member
    Hmmmm, never thought about selling the grips off of it - I'll noodle on that and do some research! Thanx guys.

    Saw them at the Luke AFB air show a couple of years ago.  Impressive does not even begin to describe them.  The local boys in the F-35s and F-16s were are slouches either  B)

    In addition to the Thunderbirds they are scheduled to have demonstration flights by an F-22, an F-35, an F-16, a C-17 and an A-10.  Gonna be a fun (and loud) weekend.  Going to start Saturday off at the gun range for a bowling pin shoot before catching the air show at my brother's place about a mile from the airport.

    Just got stung by something - I think it was a wasp. Been a kazillion years since I've been stung.
    We have a tree with a honey bee hive in it on the corner of our property. I was planting daffodil bulbs beside it last week. The ground is so hard I was pounding in the bulb planter with a 3# hammer. Had a couple bees in my hair but none got a stinger in me....

    Planted 112 bulbs total (+ 35 crocuses)..... It was a lot of work. Sonsabitches better all bloom in the spring.

    Unless the squirrels dig them up, most will bloom.

    We will need a follow up pic in the spring.

    Very cool! Just don't tell Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They might get triggered again.

    Well, they dig some of them up here------maybe a young squirrel doesn't know he doesn't like
    daffodils until he tries one.

    Maybe squirrels see daffodil bulbs same as I see eggplant and Brussels sprouts; unedible garbage used to torture children at the dinner table. :D

    Headed out to the range to hunt bowling pins this morning.  Think a .30-06 will be sufficient to knock them over?  :D

    That's a good thing! I have a feeling I wouldn't like moose sack stuff; sounds like mountain oysters, and I don't eat them, either.  :)

    What is wrong with you. There are few things better, I don't care if they come from bulls or boars.

    FINALLY, a real, live performance opportunity! Granted, it will be outside in a park, but they have a nice stage. Practicing something I've never performed, just messed around with for years - a "goblet" dance. Dance on top of 3 inverted glass goblets - a Turkish thing. Little, itty-bitty gals can use heavy wine glasses, but I'm having to use Sundae goblets!

    Sooooo. . .seeing as it looks like we're going to be returning to the Obama Administration shortly, I have to ask. . .

    How has the original prize brick of .22LR been stored?
