One of the best guns S&W ever made.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: How do They Shoot

I have handled/fired a few over the years and they are great pistols, accurate and very well made.

Make sure to ask what the previous owner liked to shoot in it (if possible) or failing that, don't be afraid to try several different loads to see what it likes.

But I purchased a new Taurus years ago, that is basically a K22 clone, which cost me less than half of what a real one cost back then. Would've sooner had the "real deal", but money was tight then and I have no complaints with the Taurus.
