    Great Colt revolver and great post! The six-shot Colts are THE way to do snubbies.

    Awesome!!! I'm glad to see the snubs getting a lot of love lately. I believe they have a ton of merit in CC and get overlooked by new shooters because they aren't perceived as being "cool." I guess movies and TV have influenced popularity of the semi-autos, but to me there's nothing cooler than a revolver...especially a short barreled one.

    I have an old S&W 649 and a Ruger LCR I often carry. I normally carry a Glock 27, but 30+ years ago, I usually carried wheel guns. I still have my first revolver, a Ruger Speed Six 2 3/4" 357 magnum.

    Nice! I still carry my S&W 2" Airweight, bought new in 1970, still shoots great. Everybody should own one.

    It was owned and carried by a family member for 13ish years, and it was used. Then it was found in an attic 29 years after it was stored there upon his retirement and 19 years after his death. It was given to me because he was my mentor so to speak. Nobody knew what happened to it until last month. Life is strange that way.....

    great looking gun....

    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

    Are you sure about that? I know the King Cobra was available in a 4", but that's a whole different gun. I'm no expert, but I thought the 4" version of the alloy 'D' frame .38 was the Viper.

    I wish it was a Viper!!!!!! No it is a Cobra, they were made in the 3 inch, and 4 inch and if you can find one one..5 inch. Im working on a 5 inch I found in Louisville Ky but the man isnt budging on his 2 grand price. 2 grand is a bit steep..
    Current collection: Too many according to the wife...
