    All I can say is, "holy smoke!" Are those blackpowder rounds or somethin?



  6. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Well, I`ve got a model 27. That`s pretty close. 🙂

    Smith and Wesson is garbage, look it up and save yourself the trouble and money .. taurus is the same quality



  8. longtrangm1a on November 30, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    With the right amount of practice I would have no problem trusting my life to a quality 6 shooter, or two. LOL.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Outstanding revolver! Thanks for sharing



  15. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    No. If I remember right, those rounds were loaded with Unique powder. Great powder, but it burns kind of dirty.



  16. Beast Ouncelifeian on November 30, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Mine Didn’t have smooth grips. It’s a ’72



  17. 1pen2books on November 30, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    The true classical master piece.

    Hard to beat a K Frame Smith.



  21. UziNineMillomeetah on November 30, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    just got one today that’s in amazing shape.



  22. Liberty Cave WS7PB on November 30, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    DA shooting is far more accurate, well worth learning

    Daysh



  24. jha77jha77 on November 30, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Great vid, just bought a 15-3 from 1971, what a great gun can be happier!



  25. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    They are a nice revolver.



  26. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Thanks for watching.



  27. Karl Pettigrew on November 30, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    just got a model 15-3 and I was glad to see your video and give a little history of the 38 special.  Keep the videos coming.



  28. Yanks on November 30, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    I inherited this beautiful gun from my grandfather, who carried it while he was an Air Force MP. Mine is a 67 model and it an excellent shooting gun.



  29. BadWolf on November 30, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    My gawd! you have a lot of revolvers. Thanks for showing.



  30. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Thanks.



  31. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    These are still reasonably priced compared to most of the older S&Ws. And there are a lot of them out there, so they are not that hard to find. But most will have some holster wear. They were a favorite of police around the country.



  32. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I remember reading somewhere that in the 50s and 60s something like 70% of all police carried S&W revolver.



  33. James Roberts on November 30, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Carried one off and on, depending on the post i was assigned to, as a USAF security policeman 1971-75. Good, dependable weapon.



  34. wendykdm on November 30, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    As always another great video!



  35. BENNYBIGGUN on November 30, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    great video nice shooting



  36. JohnADK Enthusiast on November 30, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    LOL



  37. longtrangm1a on November 30, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    I love this revolver. I love the fact that this gun was at one time in every holster of all the police officers in the US. It is the Glock of its day. A true work horse.



  38. Ron Shackelford on November 30, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    AHPI still have the Combat Masterpiece 15-3 I carried for 20 years  Issued to me in 1972.  Still in amazing condition, and one of the finest firearms I have ever fired.  No revolver or pistol can match the trigger pull and accuracy of the S&W Model 15-3.  I don’t think I will ever sell it.  As a police officer, it was my best and most trusted friend.

    งะน้าๆๆมาดูเช่อๆๆสิหน่อยเร็ว



  40. Mark Johnson on November 30, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Adam 12 cop gun! I envy your collection, especially model 10 with nickel finish and five-inch barrel.



  41. MichaelH1838 on November 30, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I bought a .38 4-inch barrel ramp sight combat masterpiece in San Diego in 1954.  I was navy, and several of us fired frequently while we were at sea off the fantail of LST 1101.  Sweet shooting, and the most accurate of the guns owned by us swabbies.  Sold it to an Ellensburg policeman in 1960 to pay the rent…worst sale I ever made. 
    What did we shoot at?  Garbage being jettisoned.  The most inaccurate gun used off the fantail?  A .45 1911 Navy Colt.



  42. Toti Zabayle on November 30, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I have the exact model 15-3. What a beauty.



  43. Danger Man on November 30, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I have 2 of these. A 1970 and 1971. The finest .38 special revolver ever made.



  44. robert evans on November 30, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    mine’s a pre-model. 1951 i believe.



  45. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    That range is part of our local Izaak Walton.
    I can shoot out back of my place, but I don`t very often. It spooks the hell out of my neighbor`s cattle and sheep.
    And there are a lot of rocks that a bullet could bounce off of.
    The local Izaak Walton range is only about 8 miles away. And since it`s members only, it`s pretty private. Half the time I go there I have it all to myself.



  46. Andrew Freitas on November 30, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Great Video! I I have been talking to someone who I would like to purchase this exact model from. The one he is selling has more wear on the barrel and some scratches on the cylinder but comes with the original grips. It also has "SACTO PD" stamped on the left side just above the trigger guard.  What do you thing would be a fair price to offer him for it?



  47. 1957Shep on November 30, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Thanks Wendy.
