My mother-in-law recently told me that she wanted me to have her deceased husband's guns. She presented me w/ a Winchester 190 .22 rifle & this:
It is a 3" S&W Model 36 .38 Spl w/ a Tyler T grip. It was built in '76 according to the serial # as is as close to mint as anything I own! It has been shot VERY little!
Nice little revolver. With that Tyler T it should be a real pleasure to shoot.
Nice revolver partner. That looks like it will shoot to point of aim, like your finger. Nice carry piece, congrats.
Congrats on the new to you firearms. Sorry for the loss of a loved one.
I have one. They make a lot of sense. Light and handy to carry.
Lucky guy, that is a really nice piece!
Sweet. Think of him when you take it out.

A nice blessing for you. The neat thing about those 3-inch guns is that they actually hide as readily as the more popular 2-inch models.
I'm even interested in that Winchester Model 190. I bought one for $37 from White's Auto in about 1971. Wore it smooth out. Bought a second trigger assembly/trigger guard from Numrich, installed it and wore it out again. Sold it for chump change a few years back just to clear space. Now I wish I had it back.
Memories of youth. I was a big dumb kid once back in the early to mid-1970s. Don't laugh!
