Very Cool, Wayne County is the largest County in Michigan, it is also the County where Detroit is located. Actually I think Ken and the Grumpy's live in Wayne County am I correct guys?

Nice score Bill. I have a S&W model 67 no dash, .38 Special version of the same gun, both stainless S&W K frames. It's amazing to handle a gun like that then a modern semi-auto. No wonder a used model 67 costs more than a lot of new semi-auto's.

We went to the range a few months ago when our daughter Susan was in town. She shot the 9MM and 22 but liked the 38 best. She was also more accurate with it than the others and she's a whopping 4'11" and change.

This is Lynda shooting the 38.

Great pic Hank...looks like a nice outdoor range.

Yeah, I've got a couple large frame Smiths already...model 29-3 and a Model 66-5 both in 4" and one of my favorites...a J frame Model 638.
I'm old school I guess...always slightly favored a shorter barreled revolver.
And when this Trade-in became available at a price I couldn't pass on, I grabbed it. Got it home and researched the Wayne Co marking.
Then thought about y'all here.

Range is in a state rec are a few miles from our house. $10 and you can shoot all day. Ric and I went there one afternoon and we were the only ones on the range. Nice cause you change targets when you want instead of when they call it.

Sounds like a nice collection Bill. I like the 38, just wish ammo didn't cost twice as much as 9MM ammo.

I lived in Wayne county most of my life, until 14 yrs ago when we moved here. I think the Grumpy's live in Berkley, Oakland County, borders Wayne County.

How's that Taurus, what do you think? I was looking at the Ruger LC9S but have been busy with other stuff, haven't been to the range since Susan was here in August.

Ric, you are correct on saying Wayne is the largest (in population) county in Michigan. I live in Wayne but Dave & Nancy live in Oakland county as they are north of 8 Mile Rd.

Hank, my folks both EDC Ruger LC9s. They like them for the minimum bulk. I am stuck on my G30 SF for my EDC.

I'm not stuck on Rugers but the SR9C had the best feel in my hand of all the ones I looked at in that size. Same with LC9S, looked at all the guns they had at Gander Mountain and they have a lot. I though it would be a good carry gun.

Been shooting the hell out of that bargain Taurus PT111 G2 that I told you about...probably have run over 1K rounds thru it...ZERO issues!!
Like the relatively compact size and the 12 rd mag capacity.
I'd put it up against a Glock anyday.
Not bad for a $199 gun that also had a $50 rebate.
