Shooting Elmer Keith's Carry Pistol


Subscribe to Channel

I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try my own hand at shooting the legendary Elmer Keith's personal carry gun, a Smith & Wesson pre-Model 29 in .44 Magnum. It's a fantastic piece of shooting steel, and was a joy to shoot, even if I couldn't handle it anywhere near like Keith did. It will be coming up for sale at the James D. Julia auction house in a couple weeks, and I can't think of a better piece of history to have for any fan of big-bore revolvers!
