One of the worst purchases I have ever made. This revolver does not excel at anything. I would not trust my life to the defensive .410 out of this gun. .45 auto and Long colt have horrible accuracy due to the length of the cylinder to forcing cone. Buy something else unless all you want this for is killing snakes.

I received my Governor in a very timely manner which for starters is great! The package and gun were in nice packing keeping it safe until I picked it up. The lock for the hammer and barrel was a nice safety feature. The hammer and trigger are very smooth. The third click of the hammer coming back in single action use takes a smidge longer than the first two but nothing too major. It fires very nicely both 45 ACP using the included moon clips and with 45 Colt. There were quite a few clips included which was nice; however, the brass is a bit difficult to remove once fired and I needed to buy a piece to remove it. All in all the fun is beautiful in appearance and function and the versatility of the calibers is amazing.

Not tactical at all, but everyone loves it! "Bearded tactical a-holes" will even stop admiring there AR's to check it out. But as a warning, it will not help you get a chick. Ton of fun, the defense 410 loads are awesome, 45acp even rocks, but only use brass, steel cases spit and get stuck. I'll try aluminum soon. 45colt is also stout in defense loads, but a little pricey when compared to acp.

Gun shoots amazingly well. very little recoil on the .45 ammo. 410 shots are pretty manageable and shoot great. Gun was in mint condition when i picked it up. This gun is very I mean VERY fun to shoot. Definitely worth purchasing if you are looking for something amazing in your gun collection. One down side that I have experianced with this gun however is that after shooting a couple 410 shells through it and emptying the revolver I heard something inside the gun clinking around. Dont know what it is but its kind of annoying. Gun still shoots great but because of this im giving it a 4 STAR.

I just picked this revolver up today, I got it to replace the S&W 637 38 spl. I sold to be my new snake gun. I shot some 45 acp, 45 colt and 410 shot shells from it after I got home and cleaned it. Everything worked fine, the 45's felt like 22's coming out of it. The 45 colts had a little kick but not bad. The 410's had a little more kick but I think less than 357's out of my model 60. With 410's it blew a Coke can in half on the second shot at seven yards. It is a fantastic weapon and made with S&W quality. Fit and finish is great and it arrived in perfect condition. Well, when I went to close the chickens up for the night, there was a 5 1/2 foot rat snake layed up in the corner under the roost, the first one I have seen this year. I shot him in the head from about 5 feet and it was all over. My ears are still ringing, I will wear my ear plugs from now on when I go out at night to close up the birds. 410's are loud insde an 8'x8' hen house!! But what a great revolver. As for buds this is about my fiftith gun from them and they have always been great. Prices as good as my local shop gets wholesale, and has always offered very good service.

Just received my Governor, and I have to give kudos to Smith & Wesson for making such a quality product. Gun came in immaculate condition, everything neatly packaged and stored in its box(cardboard). This is my third Smith, second purchased through Buds, and am glad the quality exceeds the price paid. The gun itself is lighter than you think it will be and it points well. The grips(which are different than pictured), feel a bit firm compared to Hogues. While many people have a philosophical aversion to .410 bore hand guns, you can can not deny the quality of construction and the ability to shoot: 2.5" .410, 45 ACP, 45 LC, 45 GAP, 45 Schoefeld. Makes for a good multitasker. Cant wait to take it hiking. Thank you Buds for shipping my Governor so quickly! Ordered on Monday, picked up the gun on Thursday!
