Got into some of Dads handguns today.

Had not seen Dads handguns in years. I used to clean em from time to time. Hes getting on in the years now but always liked handguns. Anyway Was over checking on him and Mom. Said Daddy I want to check out your pistols.Go get me one of the suitcases.He keeps em in two suitcases.Id been trying to remember the mod of one S&W. Think its called a highway patrolman 357 with a 3' barrel ad sights. Never got to the suitcases,Had these in a cardboard box. A lady smith,a S&W mod 31,S&W mod 30,and a S&W mod 61 escort.All in the boxes,I cleaned em and put em up. I told Dad Id clean some more next week. I know hes got two cheif spls,a colt combat comander, a browning highpower,Three more S&W 32s,and two S&W victory mods.Hope theres a surprise or two in there too ;)Thought yall might enjoy the pics.Anybody know the mod number of that highway patrolman??

S&W HP is a model 28, they came in 4" and 6".

If you have an N frame S&W and it's got a 3" (3.5" really) barrel, chances are it's a 27. Look at the top strap for checkering.

Now, if it's a smaller frame, it could be a 19, they had 3" offerings.

Take care of Mom and Dad.

I know its not a 19.And your right snapping twig,I remember now it is a 3 1/2 thanks guys.I will try and get to it this weekend. Hadnt thought of that pistol till the other day.Remember shooting it at the river,maybe 25 years ago.Dad telling me he didnt like it because it was too loud.He also has a nickel S&W in 32-20 somewhere.And a nickel lady Rossi .22 with a 3" barrel,like that little pistol too.
