    Cool Ain't She Sweet............

    I was in my local gun shop and saw a S&W Model 36 ( my first concealed carry gun bought in 1968 and sold long ago ) with hidden potential in the used gun case. Her bithday is between 1966 and 1968 . She was a little rough on the outside but nice and tight everywhere else ( just like I like my ladies) LOL. I took her home and cleaned her up and bought her a new outfit (grips) and here she is. Ain't she sweet.

    I just inherited one of these from my late uncle who was a LEO in East TN (among other things). I doubt she has over 50 rounds. A pretty little girl for sure. Nice to know she has family out there. Enjoy.

    I love the "old school" (pun intended) .38's. I have a model 60 in stainless that was my first handgun. Great find and the holster wear adds character. Nice grips too.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Very nice and very practical! Has "pinned" barrel even. Don't own a square-butt J-Frame but it might just be the most practical variation of the breed. Steel frame and the choice of single-action capabilities. What's not to like?

    I've shot other folks square-butt Chief's Special revolvers and they represent a real positive difference over the common round-butt versions for someone with large hands.

    Thanks for posting it.
