    Thumbs up Found a nice big snubbie yesterday! (now with pics)

    I was looking around the local gun shops and pawn shops yesterday, not really looking to buy anything in particular, and I came across a LNIB S&W 2-1/2" 686-5 (pre-lock) plus (the seven shot cylinder) .357Mag. The revolver looks like maybe only a couple boxes of ammo has been shot through it and has no scratches, dings, etc. on it (was taken care of properly). I already have a S&W 4" model 65 .357Mag, but this 686 snubbie was calling my name for sure. The pawn shop wanted $700 for it, but got them down to $640 out-the-door. I just ordered a Don Hume H715M IWB holster for it from Gunnersalley. I'll try and gets some pics up tomorrow of it.

    I saw the post about a "subbie" and I got to thinking about a $5 foot-long. Then I thought, wait, maybe he means a Mac 10 or an H&K MP4...

    Alas, I suspect he means 'SNUBBIE."

    I was thinking an Uzi or some such.

    I appreciate a great subbie as well as snubbie. We need the gun porn, though.

    Oops! Yep, I meant Snubbie. I must have been pretty tried last night when I wrote. Sorry for getting people hungry (JD, that is a big subbie) and also thinking of sub-machine guns.

    Here's a few pics I promised of it:

    Nice gun, my 4" 686 is my favorite wheel gun. I can't say much on the price, but if you are happy that's all that matters. Now get some good leather, as it deserves it.
