When is an S&W Model 63 no longer a “Kit Gun?”

'chipy,

That's some good shooting.

What year did you retire?

If you can still find these for $200, I think they still qualify:

But ALL kit guns have been surpassed by the LCR:

G44's are tough to beat for a modern day option:

The old Police Positives are tough to beat in .38 Colt.

Thank you, sir. It was done from a bench over sandbags at 50 yards. I’m not as steady offhand as I used to was. The trick is to use a bullseye sized large enough to visibly surround the red dot.

I retired as a prosecutor in ‘07 to go to Afghanistan. But, that’s another story.

Gotcha.

I read your handle to mean you were a CHiP. I may have misunderstood.

Well, you shoot like one, that's for sure.

LOL

If you're ever in Miami let me know. Rounds on 'flave.

You did not misunderstand. I started with the CHP and did 9-1/2 years, the last two on the CHP pistol team. When I found myself instructing baby DAs how to try my cases, I decided I would do better to put up rather than shut up.

An excellent idea. I accept. My “retirement job” has taken me to Florida in the past, and may again.

IMO Smith and Wesson coined the term to sell small revolvers in a day when almost no one carried concealed in public. The conservative attitude of the era from the dawn of the 20th century til around the mid 1980s was that no law abiding man needed to be or should be armed without reason.

There were always those fascinated with handguns, and the appeal of the "Kit Gun" stored away, yet ready if needed sold untold thousands of J Frames.

In today's world where virtually all Americans who wish to carry do so, the term has become archaic, or anachronistic.

And this in no way negates the appeal of these same handguns, or whatever a guy chooses to carry in this day and age.
