Maybe its time to broaden your horizons. If you pass on all nickel S&Ws, you are missing out for sure. I don't judge a S&W by caliber, finish, barrel etc, I consider each gun on its own merit. Although I must admit, newer S&Ws (with the lock and MIM) don't interest me, SS isn't as interesting (I have a few). Other than that, if a good one comes along, I get it, but I prefer older 4 and 5 screw guns.
