    The 2 1/2-inch K-Frame Smith & Wesson is always appropriate. Bottom revolver is a Model 66 in a K,L, and N Frame .357 Magnum line up.

    In spring and summer pocket is the usual carry method, which limits it to J frames, unless you got REAL big pants. In winter us cold weather people can belt carry and go up a size in weapon. You know when it's January and you see us poor SOB's shoveling 18 inches of snow know we are all belt carrying.

    Holy smokes! No one told me if I had a winter carry mindset I could get a bunch of these! I'm in, sign me up. Great looking guns. Here I just thought you used the same gun year round and just added or deleted clothes.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    The issue there is because of the clothes. If you are shooting a .38 and try to go through a guy wearing down, leather, and denim if it is a HP round in MOST cases it ain't going to expand or even penetrate real far. Kind of like 'poor man's kevlar.'

    The M66 is on the wish list... but the M64 DAO snub is serving as a good placeholder for now.

    When I lived in Ma this was a common practice. Stepping up in power to make sure you penetrate multiple layers! In the summer I usually carried a J frame 38 but once it got cold enough for more than a sweatshirt I switched to a 357 K frame.

    In Arizona it's year round shorts & t-shirt, so, it's year round snubby. S&W M60 .357

    Man I love these types of threads! Beautiful guns gentlemen. I have got to get me one of those model 66's. IMO, it's the epitome of what a cool revolver looks like.. Absolutely awesome.

    I think this is mostly urban legend.

    All ammo is tested by manufactures, and Police Departments, in the down/denim/leather to see if they expand. I have read of this many times over the last 10-20 years where there is PROBABLY some merit to it. If not it at least gives us a excuse to buy more toys.

    The two 3" 66's were REAL hard to find. One I got from Gunbroker for $750 the other at a gun show from a guy who didn't know what he had, $550
