Pictured below is my S&W Model 629 stainless steel N frame chambered in .44 Magnum. She has a 4" barrel and target trigger, target sights ( WO RR ) and Pachmayr grips...

Another favorite revolver of mine is my S&W Model 13 nickel plated K frame chambered in .357 Magnum. She features a 3" bull barrel with v-notch rear sights and standard ramp front sights. I put on the Pachmayr grips to tame recoil.

My very first semi-automatic pistol was the 2nd generation S&W Model 645 chambered in .45ACP. She has a target trigger and target sights ( WO RR ) and holds 8+1. The stainless steel frame and slide sport an ambidextrous safety/decocker, a squared trigger guard, and black plastic grip plates, which I replaced with Pachmayr's.




S&W began experiments with .45ACP firing pistols in 1984, and produced their first one, the Model 645, in 1985. Public demand led to the development of this series. The series consists of normally double-action weapons, or what Smith & Wesson refers to as a traditional double action. They generally have a barrel bushing press fitted into the muzzle end of the slide instead of a separate barrel bushing like a 1911 pistol. Like many Smith & Wesson models, each variant was generally in production for only a few years. (The Model 645 was introduced in 1985, and produced until 1988.)

The S&W 645 was used in seasons 3 and 4 of the TV series Miami Vice by the main character Vice Detective Sonny Crockett.

My second semi-automatic pistol was the 2nd Generation S&W Model 659 chambered for the 9mm cartridge. On her stainless steel frame and slide she sports adjustable rear sights and a front ramp sight as well as an ambidextrous safety. She holds 14+1 in her double stacked magazine. I replaced the standard black plastic grip panels with a nice set of Zebrawood finger grooved wraparound grips. Production of this 2nd generation model started in 1985 and continued until 1988, when the 3rd generation Model 5906 was introduced.

I have oh a few S&W revolvers and I like them especially My Old 629 CLASSIC in .44 Mag but most of the time when Hunting or something to carry in the truck usually going Hunting lol. I bring along a Ruger Stainless Security Six in .357 Mag. I just feel better about it when using HOT loads. Very Accurate and Tough as a Tank.

But I do keep either the 629 CLASSIC or the Old style 629 with me just in case. :)

Yes I like the .44 Mag a very versatile round if one re-loads.

I will add that at times I also bring along a Ruger Old Army Stainless. Fun pistol to shoot and accurate and do not anyone fool you as with a full load it will drop a Hog.

You can't go wrong with any Smith .357. I like Model 28s but also have a 66 and a Model 19. I bought a 586 the year they came out and traded it away for what I don't remember.
