Bud's Gun Shop doesn't play around. I ordered the gun one Wednesday afternoon using the online system. The following Friday afternnon my FFL let me know it had arrived and looked great.
The blue on the gun looks perfect....very deep. The double action trigger pull is smooth and the single action breaks perfectly clean and crisp. I can already tell this gun is gonna be a shooter.
The grips are as pictured. When I cleaned and oiled the gun the first time, I wiped on some oil on the grips. They really looked good that way. I think I'm going to strip them down, restain and then coat and recoat with polyurethane to bring out the lustre.
I recieved my rounds from Double Tap Ammo by UPS yesterday. I'm going to shoot this weekend and see how she does.
This is a nice looking and well balanced piece that will be a joy to pack as a sidearm while deer hunting. I hunt in riverine areas that have large populations of wild hogs. This gun may have the chance to take one of these or a close ranging deer this upcoming season.
I will be shopping with Bud's again. My local S&W dealers don't keep anything in stock and it'll be nice having Bud's available to help me continue with my S&W collection.
Wish I'd started before the "Hilary-lock" days!!!!!!
