This was the first hand gun I ever owned. Ordinary citizens can't own them in the southern part of the state of NY, but the rules in northern NY are more relaxed so people living near NY city and Long Island's lives are not worthy of protecting. I was issued this gun by my department in 1970 shortly after being sworn in and carried it every day for 20 years till I retired. I still have the gun because we were allowed to keep our gun when we retired.
I carried one in the Viet Nam era and would like to purchase one of my own What would be a fair price for a used weapon in good condition? S&W Model 15
We are continuing to followup on the many requests for more revolver articles from our readers, and we are more than happy to comply. As I pointed out in previous articles, there are some shooters who believe that the “old” revolver isn’t a viable option for self-defense work, and I couldn’t disagree more. Now, we aren’t necessarily talking about a SWAT team clearing a building of an active shooter or a terrorist. We are talking about everyday people who carry concealed or want a home defense handgun, and for whom the revolver might just be the perfect answer.
