However, I also saw this H&R:
There on the top strap, it actually says "TRAPPER MODEL," and this long-barrelled, large-grip .22 was intended for .22 Short, used to deliver a merciful coup de gras (sic) to animals caught in traps. These days, I'd use Colibri or CB/BB caps for plinking at the range. No crane; it's a "pull-pin" type revolver with a press-to-release latch under the pin at the front of the frame.

Mind you, that's if Tam's cat ever lets me shoot it! She laid a claiming paw in it as soon as I set it down in her patch of sunlight for photographs.
A good show; I picked up a workbench mat and a 9-shot .22 speedloader (H&R) as well. Tam... She bought other things. She might even tell you what they were, if you ask nice.
(Also, my first gun show wearing contacts instead of eyeglasses in some years. It's somehow different.)
