Cooper had and probably still has three N frame S&W revolvers (that I know of, he might have more).s I thought it would be interesting to discuss them,
The first was a 6& 1/2 inch .357 Magnum which he carried concealed in a Hardy shoulder holster. He said it was the best all-round revolver he knew of.
The second was a 8&3/8 inch .44 Magnum which he carried in a Berns-Martin holster. He said it was an ideal hunting handgun.
The third was a 6&1/2 inch S&W .45ACP Model 25 Target. I don't knoe if he carried it in a holster or not though it would have fit in his Hardy holster. He called the Model 25 the epitome of the US service revolver.

He thought the S&W N frames were the best heavy duty revolvers made

The is a full page photo of Jeff shooting his 44 Mag in the book Cooper in Handguns. While everyone connects Cooper with the 45 auto, he definitely had a great appreciation for powerful revolvers. Its too bad that he didn't devote more written pages to the revolver but it was not his passion nor the subject that brought money in.

Jeff's wrong about many, if not most things.

Most of us are andy. Thats the reason we have a mind to sort things out with. At least Jeff had the guts to put his thoughts down in print without running people off and make a successful business out of it.

Have you done that?
