So I took an unfired S&W 29-3 that was 38 years old to the range yesterday and shot it. It took me 3 trips to the range with it ( not it alone) to bring myself to load and fire it. Everybody knows that the -3 is about the least collectable iteration of a 29 there is, value is not high and I really wanted to keep it and I wouldn't have if I couldn't bring myself to fire it, and I really wanted to keep it. I wont keep any gun I cant/wont fire. I love a 4"N frame and this one is really nice, so I shot it. It of course performed fine. Accuracy would have been better with someone behind the trigger who knows how to shoot a revolver but it was decent. It was alot of fun.
