Thanks, Snake.I've said before that the 3" round-butt Smith Ks are probably the finest carry revolvers ever made. Congratulations!
I've owned 2 1/2" K's (Model 66), but this is my first 3 inch round butt, and you, sir, are absolutely correct. The feel and balance of this gun is just perfect. Much easier to handle than a J frame. Heavy enough to dampen recoil and help to steady it during double action shooting, not too heavy to carry all day.
I am really happy with this gun.
Now I gotta find a decent holster.
