8" Smith Shooter

Ok, so I can't stop buying S&W's, but I DID need a centerfire to shoot silhouette matches in the Open Sights class.

I think this one should be able to reach out to 50 yds.

I mean, that's a good excuse isn't it?

Should be in my hands within a week.

Help me with the year, 1972?

Here are the first pics I've seen of it!

Yup, looks like 1972, if I'm reading the SCSW correctly.

Very nice, and a perfectly good excuse indeed.

Thanks!

And, yes, it's a trigger shoe.

Might even leave on the shoe and see how it match shoots.

Can't wait to get it to the range and put a little smoke on its cheeks!
