For the longest time I had a problem finding a holster for my Dan Wesson revolvers, because folks supposedly in the "know" kept telling me "just get one for a S&W 10, they're the same size". Even some holster dealers online. NOT!
So I thought I would post some pics of snubby size comparisons from what I have on hand.
Alas, the S&W 10 must return home to my sister as I'm finished with what I can do with it at this time.
Maybe this will help someone to NOT collect a box full of unused holsters. Pardon the pics, I guess I was not cut out to be a photographer.
This serves as a reminder to me that I don't have very many snubbies. I may just have to do some shopping!
Time to go shoot and, more than likely, buy an LCR.
Great info and gun porn! Love the sp 101 and that Dan Wesson looks massive. I have no info on DW revolvers so forgive my ignorance, what caliber is it?

I'm so jealous
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I was going to comment on not wishing to compare the size of my snubby, but I thought better of it...
Here at the rock, we have two basic rules...
Glock 27 for every day carry (LCP for deep conceal when necessary)... Glock 23 for the home.

I keep reading folks saying that S&W J frames are smaller than the Ruger LCR, but I'm just not seeing it.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
Let me add these. .

I just love hammerless snubs. Thanks for sharing. Looks like my LCR could use a sp101 to keep it company.
For the Dan Wesson, you might try holsters for the old Speed Six and Security Six snubs. Of course, they are long out of production too so not readily available.
