    Very nice. I'm sure they've served you well. I like the added T-Grip on the Airweight.

    I'm in the process of acquiring my first carry revolver. It will most likely be a S&W 66 or a 640. Leaning toward the 640, though.

    Which holster(s) do you prefer for carry?

    Nice pair. Well worn revolvers have character. Usually have stories to go with too. Not a huge fan of bobbed hammers though.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I still have and shoot my .38 Airweight, it's about 40+ years old now.

    Here are the two holsters I like to use most.The Charter rides in an AKJ and the S&W in a Galco.

    Why do you not like bobbed hammers on a carry gun?I would never use single action in a defense situation.

    Greetings, TWO GUNS.

    THANKS for the photos. Damn good looking rigs!

    I bet the Bulldog disappears in that IWB holster. The Galco rig look pretty comfy, too.

    You ever owned/carried a Centennial series Smith?

    What do you call that grip addition or front strap on your airweight and where would I get a couple? I have several old safe queen smith's with that tiny grip and that added finger piece looks as if it would make it better to hold when shooting.

    It's a Tyler T-Grip.

    Here's their site...

    You're gonna have a hard time finding one to fit your Mailbox, though...

    Yes I did have a couple Centennials but sold them because they had that dam lock on them.I carried one in a pocket holster and the other in the Galco OWB holster.And yes the Bulldog disappears in that holster.Thanks for the kind words.
