    A S&W from that era, people were scarfing them up like crazy and not even putting a box of ammo thru it, then putting it away not to daylight for a long time. Nice catch.

    I bought a similar gun - Model 29, 6.5" barrel, blue steel, new in box in 1979 or 1980. It was a beautiful gun, but a very impractical purchase. I did not hunt, and I could not carry it. I shot it twice (two rounds), and decided it was more gun than I had any need for. I sold it shortly thereafter for about what I paid. It was a beauty, though.

    John, that was the Dirty Harry version, the 6½" blue, and a beauty. Too bad it didn't "make your day." :D

    I preferred the .41 Magnum. Not as snappy as the .357 nor as jolting as the .44.

    Mayo, I agree, the 41 mag is a terrific compromise. More powerful than the 357 and less recoil than the 44. But as a handgun hunter, I opted for the slightly more powerful 44, and just got used to the recoil.

    I thought I heard you declare war on crime.
    I didn't say to use violence!

    Yes, these days we are forever "declaring war" but refrain from hurting anyone's feelings!
    I thought "war" was a state of really not caring at all about hurting anyone's feelings, and actually being quite violent!

    Bread, and buns turn to glucose quickly in your system!
    Whole grain is slightly better than White (Eww!)
    I lost 30 pounds after I stopped eating bread and pasta!! (and sugars)
    So no insulin necessary!!
    But I'd eat those sausages - yum!!:)

    The "GOOD" (note quotes) News: I signed up (again) at Imgur. :D

    The "BAD" news: All the pictures I've taken over the years of my knives are AWOL on/from my Laptop, Tablet, and (allegedly) "Smart" Phone.
    They are not "In The Cloud", either. :eek::oops::(
    I've no idea where they went or when ...

    I never did figure out how to upload a picture to Imgur from my phone. (Maybe it needs the App?) So they are not hiding out there.

    No Well, I guess a picture test will have to weight. :oops:

    (take picture with phone ... email it to me ... download to the laptop ... upload on Imgur ... post a link or whatever here ... just to show a nothing fancy inexpensive knife, that few are probably wanting to see, anyway ... :rolleyes: I'll do it though ...)

    The process you describe sounds very similar to what I do, except I use a pointnshoot camera because I don't have a smart phone. I'm clueless about where your stored photos might have gone, though. :(

    Take a look at replies to your latest attempts in the Rough Rider thread. It looks like you're very close to complete success in posting pics. A couple of us are able to open your images even though they don't show up in your post as a visible photo.
