  4. Thoth on May 11, 2023 at 4:15 am

    Looks like a compact Browning Hi Power knock off.

    Bought one of these in 1992 for $200. Unfortunately, it was stolen in 1993. Loved it the short time I had it

  10. Benjimen Franklin on May 11, 2023 at 4:19 am

    They Don’t make guns like that anymore. Unfortunately.

  11. Michigan Silverback on May 11, 2023 at 4:21 am

  12. einyv on May 11, 2023 at 4:22 am

  13. Virgilio Ruiz on May 11, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Chulada de fierro!❤️

  14. Mark Coucke on May 11, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Still have one in great shape use it at my security job. Young guys laugh but still "old Roscoe" gets compliments for an old school pistol.

  15. Ben Santiago on May 11, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I have had the same exact gun for 20 years and like it a lot,bought it used and shoots good.One thing though,when the final shot is fired,the slide doesn’t hold itself open just slides forward as though ready to fire another shot,can anyone tell me what’s wrong and why it does that?

  16. RayRay1462 on May 11, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I’ve had mine for many years, bought it new in 1973. It came with 2- 8 round mags and I’d purchased one more since. Midway USA had magazines for it in stock awhile back. The only time I’d ever had a problem with it was when I bought a box of reloads at a range I’d visited, other than that never another problem since but I only use new ammo. It was my favorite handgun until Glock came along. The 39-2 will be with me until I die, will never part with it.

    You sure show off a lot of fine pieces of art!  Lot of uniqueness shared with us… thanks for that… very enjoyable seeing some classic pieces!

  18. Jon with no h on May 11, 2023 at 4:29 am

    Nice vintage S&W 9mm 1957Shep looks like a great shooter too.

  19. Benjamin Cooper on May 11, 2023 at 4:29 am

    This gun is in aliens 1986 And is used by private Jennette Vasquez in the final battle and to threaten Gorman

    Very classic handgun!

  22. Specific Love Creations on May 11, 2023 at 4:32 am

    nice one

  23. bigdave55b2 on May 11, 2023 at 4:33 am

    I carried a Model 39 for several years back in the late 70s and early 80s.  I decided I needed a more powerful round, so I traded the Model 39 in on a Colt .45.  Both were top notch pistols.

  24. H B on May 11, 2023 at 4:34 am

    My grail. Prohibited in Canada though :'(

  25. dame6661 on May 11, 2023 at 4:35 am

    Is the 539 good?

  26. Devin Brines on May 11, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Hi, I know that the Model 39 is about 7.6" long and about 5.1" high. How wide is it? Could you help? Thanks

  27. tom pelley on May 11, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Hey 1957Shep, nice video of a cool gun. Thanks!

  28. PacificAirwave144 on May 11, 2023 at 4:44 am

  29. hancock brewer on May 11, 2023 at 4:45 am

    I don’t know who has the better mess of Smiths you or HrntFixr But I want to shoot them all 🙂

  30. ProGun Inc on May 11, 2023 at 4:46 am

    The Smith & Wesson model 39 is a great classic gun. It was the Navy SEALS’ silenced pistol in Vietnam.

  31. Tony Tew on May 11, 2023 at 4:46 am

    How do I break one down to clean.

  32. D J on May 11, 2023 at 4:49 am

    Please help me! I inherited s 39-2. I watched a couple vids. I pulled the barrel back and forgot to remove the magazine. I now have 2 bullets in the chamber. It’s pulled back and can’t access hammer I can see the bullets and safety is on but won’t close. What do I do,? I don’t want to discharge by firing please. Help! Asap 3/91/19. Magazine is open. I see the 2 bullets. Can’t grab trigger. I can send a picture. Not sure what the side opening is called. It is open .

  33. Robert Castillo on May 11, 2023 at 4:50 am

    I love this gun. Use mine very often and it runs amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  34. Rose White on May 11, 2023 at 4:50 am

    nice and accurate?
    what is that slim bar in teh groove by the ejection port for ?
    Does it help line up the slide?

  35. Rat Lips on May 11, 2023 at 4:51 am

    I have mine from back in the early 70s. Great gun, very reliable and I went on to get a Model 59. Glad I kept them both

  36. Apa on May 11, 2023 at 4:52 am

    I wish they would start making this model again. Keep it like it was.

    I got 2 of these one in nickel plated my dad gave me before he past away. Love that gun!

  37. Aaron Barrance69 on May 11, 2023 at 4:52 am

    It was always hard to tell what pistol it was in the movie sounded like a 45 but I always thought it was a Berretta 92cheetah 9mm hmmmm screen used I doubt it lmao

  38. Tony Tew on May 11, 2023 at 4:52 am

    How do you break one down to clean it

  39. Shootin "n" Scootin on May 11, 2023 at 4:55 am

    I bought one of these brand new and I loved it! Unfortunately I had to sell it. Wouldn’t mind having another one.

  40. robert cv on May 11, 2023 at 4:56 am

    yo tengo la misma y es una chulada saludos desde cdmx

  41. Ferry Koswara on May 11, 2023 at 4:56 am

    Nice handgun… I’m having it for years… Never disappoint me

  42. thebronzetoo on May 11, 2023 at 4:56 am

    Just curious why you take your finger of the trigger every time you shoot?

  43. Adam Jackson on May 11, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Just got a 439 like new in box for $300 old school with round trigger guard and ambi safety. My buddy has a no dash nickel model 36 in great shape as well and is looking to trade. What you guys think?

  44. jjc6evil on May 11, 2023 at 5:00 am

    What type of ammo did you use in this demonstration? Hollow points, etc?

  45. Zach Cagle on May 11, 2023 at 5:01 am

    I own one of these. I have those grips but I replaced them with genuine smith & wesson black pearl grips. My favorite gun I’ve owned so far

  46. fried. on May 11, 2023 at 5:02 am

    This was my first pistol. Barely any recoil. 🙌🏿

  47. 𝐵𝑟𝑎𝑣𝑜2𝑋𝑅𝑎𝑦 on May 11, 2023 at 5:03 am

    S&W were so impressed with the Walther 9 was the motivation behind their build.I owned one in 84 and now wish I’d never parted with it.
    Excellent shooting and a great memory for me Shep, many thanks

  48. quickenmyend on May 11, 2023 at 5:03 am

    Mine has some rust on it anyone know how much to get it restored ?

  49. Texas Military Department Videos on May 11, 2023 at 5:06 am

    MK22 Hush Puppy first side arm issued to the Navy Seal’s.

  50. Slaughter Hound on May 11, 2023 at 5:07 am

    Should have known you’d have a Model 39, Shep. Was reading today how it was the first commercially available 9 mm double-action auto pistol in America. Before that the only way to get one that functioned like that was to buy some veteran’s Walther P 38 bring-back. I had heard/read about them before, but have developed a new respect and admiration for these pistols. Glad you got to give that one a good workout.
