I got this 1979 8 3/8" barrel 29-2 for $700.00 at the gun show on Saturday. It is mint unfired with the box, paperwork and tools. I am happy. Now the question is if I should shoot it or not.

Very nice. Congratulations.

Unless your plan is to turn and earn on this thing, I'd shoot the heck out of it.

:thumbsup:

The dash 2's are the most common of all the model 29's. With that in mind I'd shoot it.

This statement confuses me as I everything I have read states that they are among the most sought after.

They are sought after from a shooters standpoint because they are the last of the pinned and recessed model 29's. This ended with the dash 3's.

From a collectibility standpoint the -2's are very common.

The 29 no dash was made from 1957-62.
-1 was only made in 1962, very collectible.
-2 ran from 1962-82. 20 years of production.
-3 was 1982-87

All of the dash numbers since, up to the -10 were short runs also when compared to the -2. Of them the -6 with a 5 year production run was the longest.

I'd shoot it and also be proud to own that. Really nice. And you purchased it at a good price.
