I am trying to tell myself that I don't need another gun, I just bought three last year and kept two, but I used to have a snub nose and I am seriously getting the itch to visit my LGS and see what he has.
I have always been fond of Rugers. They just fit me. I'm not opposed to Smiths or another quality pistol. I am not opposed to buying used either. Especially if it will get me into a "better" gun, but I really don't know what makes one snubbie better than another. Five or six round capacity... six is better I suppose. 38 or 357... it's always nice to have the option of loading it with 357. Probably not an EDC, but you never know, so I'd like it reasonabley small. If it does have a hammer spur it's coming off. And I realize the LCR is very popular, but it just doesn't grab me in the looks dept. The price is sure right though. Didn't I read something about a speed loading issue though?
So what can you tell me? Maybe not what to get, but is there anything to avoid? Then I can narrow down my search to what feels good in my hand and has a good action.
