Just an awesome gift. Speaks volume of the recipient me thinks

A wise man can always be found alone. A weak man can always be found in a crowd.

RE: The Gift
Very touching.

A sad way to get any gun but a fantastic way to remember and honor a friend.

Hanz, Byrd Miller enlisted in the US Navy when 16 & at age 17 he landed on the beach of Okinawa which became the bloodiest battle of the Pacific in WWII. You are correct, I will never forget who owned this sixgun or his son Wayne who gifted it to me.

RE: The Gift
Thanks for sharing Byrd Miller's story, and the videos of his .44 Mag!!!
It stirred a chord in me as well... I wound up with a very good friend's Browning A5 similarly... I'll always treasure it, and his memory.
I had to compare your revolver to my 629: It looks like you must have something like a 6" barrel on yours (mine's 4", better for concealed work... It's actually my every day carry piece, downloaded with fairly stiff .44 SPL's.).
Couldn't help but notice, I don't know if it was just a fluke of the videoing of it, but the gun looks almost like a .38 SPL in your hands (2:30 into the 3:10 clip).

Over here fooling around & just noticed this. It is the same sixgun throughout the video. If you notice the sixgun has the red ramp sight. It also has an enclosed ejector rod which I can't recall S&W producing such in 38 Special. But I could be wrong.
