NOT motivated to sell this. Don't make silly offers because they WILL be ignored....

1968 .38s&w 5 shot, ultimately concealable revolver. From what I can ascertain this was ther final year of the tiny little 'I' frame, before the 'J' frame became the smallest standard. Exceptional single action trigger, very smooth double action. Light cylinder ring, aluminum grippy expander thing. Really clean leather OWB holster. 100 rnds-ish of mild handloads (mine) + 400-ish 146gn cast bullets & dies. 

Perfect little carry revolver. Really nice condition for a 55 year old backup piece. 

Don't really want to sell, but my business is suffering due to this GD virus thing & i'm offloading everything I can live without. 

$500 hard, concrete, no offers, firm.

Interesting piece!!! How much smaller than the J-frame, is this? Can you even buy .32 S&W anymore? I think I have a few rounds at home for it. GLWS!

It states .38S&W. I have a breakaway frame .38S&W and have been able to find ammo for it. Usually big box stores like cabela's will have a few boxes but haven't bought it in a few years so I don't know.

I'm sorry, i don't have a J frame to compare it to. There's not a massive difference, but it is noticeable in the hand.

Garufa is correct.  When S&W started giving their guns model numbers in 1957, the Model 32 was initially an I frame, but the .32 and .38 S&W switched to the J frame in 1961.  The .22s have a different history.  S&W didn't ever do things the easy way....

Oh, and BTW, the aluminum grip thing I’d, is a Tyler T-grip. They used to be the cat’s meow for little revolvers like these, before soft rubber grips became the norm. They help you hang onto and control little revolvers better. I had a little Colt Agent that had one. Really made the little revolver much easier to shoot. 
 

This is really a great little package. I hate you have to sale it. But good luck with your sale!

Ok...pardon my confusion here; but is this a 38S&W standard cartridge or a 32S&W Long? The reference to the 32 has thrown me off a bit.

It's a .38s&w

I'm not sure where Moped got .32 from....

I think moped was thinking about the model's 30 & 31 which are both 32 caliber. People see 32 and their mind goes to the caliber. Happens often when discussing the S&W 41 model. "41 magnum ?" nooooo, 22 , That's a 57 ... "357 ?" , you know what nevermind lmao. Then I leave them standing there. 🙂

Sorry guys! This is exactly what happened. I had a Senior moment, also known as a brain fart. I find these happening more and more, as I get closer and closer to 60. 😔

      This may be considered a rather odd request, but I'd like to find an identical (or rather similar) mower to what I have. I purchased used about three years ago a Model #917270810 Craftsman Tractor. It's been a great mower but over the few years I've had it I've had to replace rather a few parts, carburetor rebuild, etc. It still runs great and I just mowed with it yesterday. The more time I invest in it the more I learn about it and thus become more confident in fixing it. Over the weekend I tore apart the wiring harnesses, fixed some of the connections, installed a new starter motor, and have a new starter solenoid coming later this week. Chances are I'll continue to make it work until I cannot.
      However, it's in rough condition and quite a few of the parts are rusted, worn, broken, etc. I've had in mind to buy a new(er) mower for a while, but I've decided three or so things.
      1) I like the manual aspect of this mower and would prefer to stay away from hydrostatic mowers.
      2) I like mowing in reverse, which a lot of newer mowers disable or require an "override".
      3) I'll lose all the experience I have with the mower I have.
      If this price and condition is right, I'd love to buy an "in better shape" mower of what I've got. I'd have quite a few spare parts off of my old one. The mower I'm looking for specifically has Briggs and Stratton Opposed Twin Turbo. Mine is 19.5 HP but I think they varied slightly by the years they were made. Essentially, they look like this:

       
      I found this one but it's in Huntsville. That give you an idea of what I'm looking for as well.

      This is my Woolrich Algerian Jacket. It has many pockets , inside , outside , on the sleeve , the inside ones have latches for to carry small pistols and such. The top 2 pockets have zippered pocked right behind them. It's still new and never been worn. Size is Mens XL. I am 5-11 and 220lbs and it fits me well and I still have room to grow in it. I like my things bigger anyways. I bought it new one year and got another jacket and this got put behind other clothes and forgotten about. I am asking $75 firm and shipping is FREE. I'll accept a US Postal Money Order or cash if you are local or near me. No Paypal. Thanks for looking. I'll attach the specs in a link.... https://www.afmo.com/Woolrich-Algerian-Jacket-p/708-00101.htm
