He later moved to Sweden where his wife is from and put the pistol in a safe deposit box thinking they would be back. 8 years later he comes to visit and stops in Florida to get the gun and gives it to me since he can't take it back to Sweden with him since he can't afford to get a gun license there and IMO has Stockholm syndrome and is becoming a socialist . I've been drooling over one of the S&W 10mm guns for years and had no idea he owned one and to have it given to me for free has been a wonderful surprise. I'll post up pics when I pick it up next week.
As for the gun it's in really good condition. He bought it new and has put maybe 200 rounds though it. However there are a few blemishes on the slide and frame that kinda look like rust. And the trigger feels awful to me, long empty pull in single action and a jerky break when it finally goes bang. It also has big adjustable sights that seem to wander a bit. Also, I'm not a fan of the magazine safety disconnect either. Other than those things and the price and unavailability of 10mm ammo I'm pretty happy. Got a new back woods camping gun and a reason to start reloading. I doubt it would become a everyday conceal and carry gun but ya never know.

Stockholm is where my brother and his wife live. He loves it there, goes fishing in the Baltic all the time and speaks Swedish fluently. He fits in pretty well and has changed a lot to do so. He's kind of abandoned his roots. But every time he comes and visits the first thing he wants to do is get nachos from 7-11 and then go shooting in the west desert. So he's not a total loss.
