My interesting gift - and one I've wanted for years - was a Smith & Wesson model 39 (actually a 39-2). This is the first post-WWII 9MM to be used by law enforcement, and predecessor to the S&W M&P series. These were made 1954-about 1985. I had one in the late 70's and early 80's while serving as a reserve deputy. Sold it to a friend, who sold it to my youngest brother, and I've been trying to talk him out of it for 20+ years. Now I have my own! My original 39 was one of the nicest-shooting firearms I've ever laid hands on, and I hope this one equals it. Tomorrow comes a trip to the local range with a chance to see whether this one is sighted even close for me - adjustments to follow. If you're not a firearms type, I completely understand and have no wish to offend. However, as a long-time target shooter, I hope you will accept that this is a nice gift of a beautifully made firearm.
