Well, first the joke (its true). One of my old teachers knew a kid whose name was Ho (the last name of course). One day the kid told him that he would name his daughter Brook Lynn. Get it? get it? he
Anyway here are some ugleeeeeee guns! Really ugleeeeee. I enjoy dragging the 'e' out.

Well, regarding that M1917 Smith & Wesson POS, just saw my co-worker succesfully hitting a rock, roughly 1 and a half feet wide, from 100 yards off hand with his S&W.

Told him that the first shot was about two feet short but otherwise a good shot, the second nailed it right in the center of the rock.

The joke is funny, but your tastes in what is ugly or not is somewhat warped! They aren't the prettiest, but by no means are they ugly.

A classic is a classic and the second gun is purpose built, so who cares what it looks like. The grips are pretty cool also!

I thought the 1917 was kinda cool. Makes me think of Al Capone and Elliot Ness.

That "Ugleee" grip looks like a Hogue, except it has a screw in the side. I guess S&W is trying to copy Hogue's designs.

It happened last Saturday as we were finishing the yearly MG shoot that our dealership arranges.

Well, if Marko would not have nailed the rock with the S&W as [insert Jimbo voice]ITS COMING RIGHT FOR US the 30 odd select fire weapons probably would have...

Doggonit, I think if you went to the range and someone let you shoot their S&W 1917 you would say "Wow, this thing sure is ugly, but it shoots so nice! Then you would try to buy it from them. I don't have one anymore, but used to. And have had many other S&W's over the years. Aside from the grips and sights, what's the difference from the S&W they make today? They aren't much different from the ones made now. I used to have a Model 23. That was the best revolver I've ever owned.

I own an old SnW Victory model in 38 spl .
It is in descent shape and actually shoots well.
I had it out the other day admiring it .
