  1. You can also get a letter from the L.C. Smith Collectors Assn. My gun is also an L.C. Smith Hunter Arms 00 (field) grade. I suspect these guns would have been the most common configuration. I got a letter from the Assn. hoping for more information on where shipped, etc. The letter didn't provide any new information for me as I already knew the grade and date of manufacture from Brophy's book but it looks nice and is some confirmation. My letter cost $75.00. They did respond to an email on a question I had about my gun's forearm grip which has an unusual release mechanism only used by L.C. Smith briefly. Seem like really nice sociable folks who love their guns and love using them.
  2. I have an L.C. Smith 12 gauge, non-ejector, field grade made in 1912. Your serial number is actually a bit lower than mine. If yours is a 12 gauge it looks to have been made in 1910 according to Lt. Col. Brophy's book "L.C. Smith Shotguns". Mine was left to me by an old gentleman who hunted hard with it over his lifetime and it shows. It's as tight today as the day it was made and their old ads said it would stay that way due to its unique design. Yours appears to be in outstanding condition for its age. They are outstanding bird guns as I'm sure you know.
  3. I suggest you try these guys. There are some very knowledgeable forum members, particularly Dfariswheel. https://www.coltforum.com/forums/colt-revolvers/
  4. As myg30 mentioned there are several on the market in Nashville on Armslist right now.

    Glock 36

    I have a Glock 36 and really like it. It's never malfunctioned and I shoot it about as well as my Glock 21. It's about the same size as a Glock 26. I asked the same questions you did when I got it and the response was "it's a Glock and it just works." That's been true for mine but others may differ.
  6. Marsha Blackburn and it ain't even close.
  7. Whatever you choose I would encourage you to try several different handguns before you choose one. I had a CZ75 clone for many years and it was a great gun. I chose it without trying it out. So, great gun but I didn't shoot it much because it just didn't "feel" right to me and I didn't shoot it as well as a Glock or a 1911. Good luck and enjoy your new gun whatever you choose.
  8. I have one with both .22LR and .22WMR cylinders. Both were very accurate for me at 15 yards off hand. Don't know how it will hold up but for the price it is more than I expected. In short, I have been pleased.
  9. I also like the Browning A5 and as I got older I got an A5 light twenty. Pretty good all around in my opinion.
  10. I think .22 magnum is okay if she can hit with that and is comfortable with it. My preference is centerfire ammo so I didn't mention .22 magnum. Still miss a Webley in 38/200. It was a very soft recoil accurate revolver. A Smith Victory model in 38/200 is also a nice shooting revolver. That ammo is not generally available however and I like the earlier suggestion of a .38 special revolver with wadcutters or other lighter loads. Having said that good quality ammo in a .22 magnum along with accurate shot placement sounds reasonable to me.
  11. I am an old man so I wouldn't rule out old solutions. A good quality revolver in Colt, Smith, or other name brand in .38 S&W or .32 Long may not be optimal but they are still plenty lethal. I may be wrong but I think I recall that a .327 magnum will also shoot .32 Long or .32 H&R magnum. Personally I like a Smith K frame with a 4 inch barrel as an all around revolver. I've got others and like them all but a 4 inch K frame is hard to beat. If trigger pull is an issue then Wolff springs or Wilson Combat springs have done the trick for me in the past.

    Single action

    https://armorysupplies.com/uberti-cattleman-hombre-357-mag-revolver-343900 Not quite at your price point but the lowest I've seen for a new single action in .357. It's a Uberti. As I understand it, these folks inFranklin, TN will ship to your local FFL or if you were closer you could pick it up at Nashville Gun and Knife with no transfer fee.
  13. I am definitely old and have a Tyler trigger shoe on a Smith model 19 and a T-grip on a Colt Cobra. Both still feel right to me.
  14. At 18 my son's first personal handgun that I gave him was a .38 special revolver. That has been quite a few years ago now and he still has it and still loves it. He has several of semi-auto handguns now and likes those as well. The revolver also worked well for training his bride and it's her favorite now as well.
