    Guess it was a snubbie kind of day

    Well it is never good sitting over here bored with access to the internet, it can lead to some bad things.

    I have always been a fan of the Colt Detective Specials and finally found a decent one online. Good triggers, 6 shots, easy to conceal whats not to like.



    While going through gunbroker I came across this little Smith which I thought was just pretty damn cool. I envision a fireball coming from the port but it will be an easy gun to carry when riding. I already have a CT 642 but now I have another choice.

    Nice looking revolvers, now you can carry one on each side for that well balanced look.

    A snubbie has such a timeless appearance....I love them and bet they'll be made/carried well into the future.

    Old School, I wish you'd quit showing those things off because you're going to end up costing me a few hundred bucks!
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    I have had a 3rd generation Colt DS in nickel for many years, picked up a second generation 1968 version a few months ago and just traded for a Colt Cobra this week. Snubbies are great. Had some time to kill yesterday before going for doctors appt so I stopped in a new gunshop in Green Bay and ended up buying a Smith centenial Mode 42. Its an addiction for sure and for certain.

    Appears you are suffering from SAD (Snubbie Acquisition Disorder). The only cure is to remove the snubbies from your vicinity. I'll PM you my address...

    Great looking snubs!

    LOL.......

    And that's the beauty of them.

    They only cost a few hundred bucks each.

    I adopt dogs that no one else wants and they are the best companions so it comes naturally to do the same with snubbies.

    Good luck in your search my friend.

    Glockman you are right what in the world was I thinking.

    Camjr thank you so much for you concerning my SAD. I also suffer from SAAD (Semi Auto Acquisition Disorder) and GIGD (Guns in General Disorder) I have tried to quit many times but it is just to much for me.
