I suppose I’m dating myself here, but I recall when all the rage was to convert 357 magnum guns to 44 Special. If one couldn’t fit a 44 cal. barrel, the conversion was pretty expensive. Almost no one who was anyone was happy with the 357, despite the fact that the cartridge proved itself again and again. I used to laugh at it, because the 357 came out AFTER the 44 Special had it’s heyday.
Now here we have a very, very nice 357, just as it is. The wheel turns round.

Judging by his IP, and the fortune cookie wrappers he left in his car

I’m think we can find it in the harbor just off chinatown

Factory engraved Model 29. About a dozen rounds through it.

Al, I admire your taste. If I could, I would proudly add one to my holster.

Y’know, Al, our society used to value things made beautiful for their own sake. Beauty was part of function. Time, and effort spent towards this was never wasted.
Others saw things the same way. I recall a story from the fat north, an Inuit elder was commenting on old harpoon points, and all the carvings on them. He said those projectiles were made as beautiful as hands could make them. It was their way of honouring those seals they hunted for food.
Yep, engraving has it’s place.
