Stories waiting to be told...

There are some Sunday Smiths yet to do. (A couple Safety Hammerless revolvers aren't in the picture.)

Y'know, I'm not sure there's a single revolver in that picture that is less than a hundred years old?

Might have a box with some fodder on your doorstep. ;)

What is the number of shooters shown in the picture?

And how exactly (beyond your sheer awesomeness and gun experience)do you determine whether a revolver that old is able to be fired safely, both for gun and person shooting?

And those you can acquire ammo for, still capable of doing what they were designed to do. I know it puts a smile on MY face, every time I put on my S&W 1917....

I'm very curious about that .30ish rimfire.

For years I couldn't figure out why old (Jesse James, Billy the Kid) woodcuts of revolvers looked so weird. Eventually, I figured out the artists were depicting S&Ws and Merwin Hulberts when I was expecting Colts.

The 4" grip-safety hammerless breaktop (AKA "Lemon squeezer") at the center of the photo is quite possibly the most ergonomic ambidexterous handgun ever made. Not much firepower compared to a Glock, but it fits your hand like pointing your finger and fits perfect in the hip pocket of your jeans.
