    1st review

    Carried by Texas DPS for years. Smith & Wesson quit making these fine pistols in the 80s.
    The HEAVY N frame was basically a .357mag. build on a .44mag. frame, the Model 28 was the economy version of the model 27. The 28 had a matte blue finish as apposed to the bright blue finish of the 27. I used one in the academy with great results.

    I bought mine used in 1984. I carried it as both my duty weapon and off-duty carry. Yeah, it is big but still concealable under a baggy shirt. Plus, it was all I had at the time. I still own it and use it for target shooting and hunting. In all these years I have never had a malfunction. It's action and accuracy are as good as when I first bought it. I had another one which I sold. I would love to have it back. High on my list of favorite guns!

    I've always been an auto girl, only guns that i've looked at buying are autos, my dad has a colt .45 (series 80) that i LOVE, its an auto, when my folks go out of town that's my choice of buddy that stays with me (i live out in the boonies and i freak easily), but this past Christmas my brother bought my dad Elephant Tusk Ivory Gun Grips for it.... I'm now not allowed to touch the thing... So this time i'm forced to use my moms revolver.. and its the S&W CTG Highway Patrolman its black and looks like a cherry finish or something... well i figured that i should make sure i knew how to use it before i was in a jam and needed.. so this morning i went out in the yard (we have 15 acres) set up a old board and took aim.. well lets just say this gun kicks BUTT... and i have to say i don't think the guy hunting on the next property over was too happy with me :D...OOPS!... it is the best... i'm still learning how to shoot but hey out of 6 shots i only got one out of the group and i wasn't really aiming i was mainly focusing on my stance at that try.. still need to get the grouping tighter but hey, this is my new love!!! And me and my smart thinking just went out and shot.. and let me tell ya.. i shot it at 9 am and its 2 pmish and my ear is still ringing.. hehe...

    Big. Heavy. Accurate. Reliable. Powerful.

    With this thing you don't need a baton... when you run dry use it as a club. It's gonna hit like a 10 pound hammer... With or without ammo.
