Hoffman's probably has the largest selection, but some S&W are just hard to get because of limited production runs.

I bet you will find it on gunbroker. Its nice that you want to buy from a local dealer. But if you just can't find what you want or the local price is to stupid the gunbroker is just the thing for you.

Great S&W 38/357 revolver model reference:

If you were after a specific model you could get new or used (but without the the internal lock and some character), I'd search for the right used one. Personally, I love the K-frames, but everyone's got a favorite. The L-frame (586/686 for 357) has the full under lug and a makes for a bit heavier muzzle which is nice for a 357. And as mentioned, gunbroker is a S&W wheel gun bonanza.

great post to see!   I'm glad there are others who still like revolvers.
Not to hi-jack thread - but today I just cleaned up a 19-3 that I've owned for years. Then I read your post!!

My dad left behind a CSP Model 66. The story I hear is that the CT State Police blued the stainless, so as not to clash with their uniforms; is that legit?

No idea on the stainless, but NICE MODEL. K-frame 357. Take a look inside the frame under where the cylinder sits- should say "MOD 66". May be "MOD 66-[1,2,3']".

Here's some light reading for the minutia of model changes over the years:
