45Man, 5" S&W Model 27. That was an excellent article with a lot of good thought put into it. The closest I could get was a 4" Mod. 28. But, it does wear a set of Bearhug Grips.


JDK "hit the nail on the head" in that the five inch S&W model 27 was Skeet`s one gun choice... At the end of his Jan. 1977 "Hipshots" column he states.. " But my lost youth and long experience hold heavy influence. The one I`m going to take up permanent housekeeping with will be the one I`ve used the most- my five inch Smith & Wesson model 27"...... PS- JDK, your 4" model 28 is right there...especially with Bear Hug grips

Skeeter was a huge influence in my interest in handguns. He was the reason my first gun rag subscription was to Shooting Times. I always read his column and articles first.

It took me several years to get them, but I had to have a Colt SAA, and 5" M27, and a 7.5" Flat Top 44.

It would be hard to pick my favorite Skeeter articles...

spinsail, No... I did not know Lee Jurras personally but wish I did... I was lucky to have contacted him just before his illness set in and sent him my copy of his book with a return envelope... When on the following Christmas my card to him was returned, I knew he took a turn for the worse... His book with the photos of the African game he handgunned were the primer I needed to make an African hunt happen....
