    I think the fella ought to head to your advice if he values his fingers/hands/eyesight....JMO.

    Well, lemme see now.

    If it's made in California it's not a Smith and Wesson. They have always been made in Massachusetts.

    I'm thinking the gun is caliber-marked 32 Smith and Wesson, and Beth's friend saw that and thinks the gun is a Smith and Wesson.

    If he cannot figure who the manufacturer is (it's stamped on the gun somewhere) then he probably shouldn't be shooting at all until he gets some safety training with guns. That's pretty scary, IMHO.:eek:
