    Over the last few days I have been dreaming of a Model 686 Plus Revolver - 3", 7 Shot. I dare not since I just got my M&P 40C a month ago. Between the ammo and range time for my M&P if I bought another now I think I would need to look for a new wife. To bad she isn't into guns at all.

    My snubs are Colt Detective Spl and Colt Cobra, it's alloy twin, both around 1964 vintage. They shoot 6.

    Here's a Colt Cobra in action: (notice second finger is used to pull the trigger. His forefinger tip had previously been amputated.)

    I would refer you to the forum thread called "Boil the Frog." You might get some ideas about how to gently coax her to become "into guns."

    I just purchased my first snub-nosed revolver. I need to take it for a test drive.

    My biggest justification for it is to use it for CCH instruction. I have several semiautos to show different actions (SA, SA/DA, DAO), but until this purchase I didn't have my own revolver. Now I do!

    Here's a pic of my favorite Snubbie: early 60s S&W 49 "Bodyguard". It has character. I've got a 442 I carry a lot, but this old school snub is my favorite. A little heavier, a lot of carry wear, smoother action and more fun to shoot. Like a pair of old comfortable house shoes. I want a set of old wood S&W grips to put on my 442 just because I like the feel of the small old school wood grips.

    Rubba dub dub, and old man and his snub....

    Mine is a Ruger LCR in a Bianchi IWB. This is my first carry and works well. I am cleaning at night and have it on me, bending over, reaching, and all that fun stuff. Alot of the time forget that it is there.

    Great looking gun. Think of the history. My Colt Detective and Colt Cobra have the same "feel" for me, 1960s, Detective is stamped with a "NFPD" and number on the hilt - must be a real "Detective's" gun.

    And boy, both of these shoot so very nice with great accuracy - and they hold 6.

    Sweet guns!!! Wouldn't ya like to know the history? Mine was the personal EDC pocket gun of the gun dealer I bought it from for many years, but I have no idea before that. I've got a H&R 922 snub that was my childhood pastor's nightstand gun. He died at age 94 a couple of years ago. I even got several boxes of moldy 22 rounds with it.

    I have several snubbies and have for decades, from my huge stainless SW 624 44spcl weighing in at 2.5 lbs empty all the way down to my latest acquisition a Ruger LCR w/CTL 38+P at just 13.5 oz. The LCR has become my daily carry when at work, ultra light and hides very well, but from time to time I still like to carry my SW 624 in an OWB holster in the colder months when I can keep it covered well. Although I do carry “speedstrips” with my snubbies, when I feel a true need for high-capacity without having to reload, I carry my early model Glock 17 with 17+1.

    Mine is my 3rd Model DS.

    I have a 4" Python, too. Bought it used in the mid-70s for $350. It belonged to a Longview, Texas police officer who sold it because he felt it was inferior to his M&P M10.

    Nope..."most" consider revolvers with 3" or less to be a snubbies, like my 3" SW 624 .44 that I use as my avatar. But some snubbie fanatics even like to draw the line at 2". I wouldn't take it that far, but to each their own.

    Now THAT'S chutzpah!

    Yes, for awhile the Python was a policeman's gun. Now you have to sell your home to get one.

    I'd LOVE a 2 1/2" ! The 4" is a tough carry and I usually don't.

    And if I owned a 3" I could sell it and retire!

    Love my Taurus 605. As others have said everyone needs a good snub nose.
