Above is the first firearm to post to my gallery. Sorry folks, its not a tactical rifle, but we'll get to those... have patience.
This is a Smith & Wesson model 1006. This was the first gun I bought with my own money... way back when I was 16 years old. Nope, not old enough to buy it myself, my dad had to buy it when I earned all the money. $609, which is now still expensive, and was REALLY expensive back then! It was purchased when the model was very first introduced, in fact, the serial number is only 4 digits long (I blotted it out above for security). I am a fan of the 10mm, its my favorite when it comes to pistol rounds, and I'm not talking the fed-lite sissy stuff, give me the full power 10mm, which should be above 600+ ft-lbs of energy. I put hogue overmolded grips on it, and I love them. This gun is a real pleasure to shoot and still has a very warm spot in my heart. In fact, this is the gun I pack when I go back country fishing/backpacking. Yep, 10mm 200 gr black talons, which I use because everywhere in montana is bear country.
Hope you enjoyed the first installment!
