    The Snubby Revolver

    I recently acquired several handgun reference books. First one I read was "The Snubby Revolver" by Ed Lovette. Thoroughly enjoyed it. If you're a Snubby fan I know you will too.

    It touches on many of the discussions that are regularly brought up on this and other forums regarding the use of revolvers as primary EDCs and BUGs.

    Short, easy read, good content IMO.

    I have both a Smith & Wesson 19-3 snub and BodyGuard 38sp+P for home defense and car carry weapons. Love my 19-3! My bedside gun is a 4" 66-2.

    Nice guns. I've looked at that book a few times but hadn't picked it up yet.

    I had a body guard ,still don't understand having a laser site on it. The switch to turn it one was cumbersome and wouldn't be engaged in a stressful incident.

    I read Lovette's book several years ago. Very informative.

    I carry a snubbie revolver by choice, and have for quite a few years (actually started carrying revolvers as duty, BUG and off-duty armament in the 1970s). Lovette's book is great! I'm glad he recorded for posterity some of the tricks of the trade developed by professionals when the revolver was king in US law enforcement circles.

    I don't really like my BodyGuard. It smarts something fierce! Never use the laser on it, either. I've gone to semiautos for my EDC now and the BodyGuard is relegated to a HD and travel piece.

    I have a couple short barrel revolvers. The nicest is a S&W mod 36 with a 2" barrel. Bought it new in 1972 and shot just a small handful of ammo in it. Worked well and it is loaded right now and is never carried.

    A five shot revolver is plenty enough if one knows what they are doing. The 36 conceals great and would be adequate SD gun. What is so good about a revolver is they are not prone to have malfunctions. Nor are they complex as are many auto loaders.
