Reese Sherwood fires a revolver during his training at Fort Lewis, Washington. The gun looks like it might be a Smith & Wesson Victory model, which was first manufactured in 1899, with over 6,000,000 being manufactured over the years. During WWII it was supplied to a number of countries including, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa through the lend-lease program. It was also used by the United States military chambered in the popular .38 Special. Photo courtesy of Bryan Brooks.
