Couple of nice pistolas there. When I was young I carried a 6” High Standard revolver when running my coon dogs. Never a problem with head shots no matter how high in the tree. Also shot tons of gophers with it as well.

Those Sentinel snubs are dandy little lightweight 22s.

I never knew that they made that format Sentinel. I have one with the square grips and a 6" barrel that I've always enjoyed shooting.

In fact, it's in my desk drawer in my office right now. Gotta put it back in the safe.

That is the plainest of the Sentinel Snubs. I recall them in nickel plate and anodized gold, turquoise, or pink with white grips.

Those Firestars were ahead of their time.

I might be able to dig up a couple magazines for that Firestar, that I haven't needed since selling off mine 3-4 years ago.
