    The older people here will recognize these examples of the tools used in conventional pistol competition when we were younger. One is a Smith & Wesson Model K-38 Target Masterpiece (.38special), manufactured in 1956, after 1957 referred to as a Model 14. The other is a Model 17 (.22 Long Rifle), manufactured in 1972 and prior to 1957 was called a K-22 Masterpiece. Both are wearing Tyler T-Grip Adapters that I just got for them.

    Thanks for sharing those Todd. I have shot those two revolver models. My father owned many, many Smith's throughout the years. Memories are great.

    Two GREAT looking revolvers Todd. I've been looking and looking for the K-22 for some time now. I did come across one some time back, and the price on it about threw me into a "shock"! (still looking though)
    Nice pics Todd.

    OK Dale I will, but don't hold your breath, ha. I have had it for nine years and it is a sweety. I shoot it because that is what they are for but I do so carefully, ha. Keep looking and you will find one at a fair price. I have noticed the prices have really gone up on the S&W revolvers at the local gun shows this year. Don't know what was going on with the photo because there is no muzzle wear like the photo shows. There are no marks on it other than staining on the cylinder face from shooting.

    That is one Fine loking work of art, in my opinion!
    If I had one, I'd take good care of it but it would get plenty of shooting time,
    for sure. As you said Todd, that's what they where made to do.
    FINE looking Smith, Todd!;)

    Thank you Dale and Beth. Not much holster time for my guns these days so it easier to keep them nice.

    Oh, what a weekend this has been. I got a new desktop computer Friday and of course it has Windows 7 (no way I was ready to try 8). I am not very computer literate so it has been a time of swearing and fuming trying to get the old stuff to work on the new box. At times I was ready to pitch the darned thing out the door. But I finally got most things running. I do miss the Works Suite that I have used for years to make stuff like labels, range signs, ID cards, cartridge box labels and even a few targets but it doesn't work on Win. 7. I guess I will have to look for a free or low cost substitute. Old geezers don't like change and they sure changed darned near every thing, ha.

    Only thing I have Beth is several disks of a Works Suite 2001. That is pretty old and I doubt it is compatible with Win. 7. So the answer to your question is no.
