    Snubby size comparison

    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 was going to comment on not wishing to compare the size of my snubby, but I thought better of it...

    I keep reading folks saying that S&W J frames are smaller than the Ruger LCR, but I'm just not seeing it.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Having owned both, I can tell you the j frame is smaller and fits into a pocket better. The lcr is taller, longer and the trigger guard on the lcr is also larger.

    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.

    It's in the trigger guard and overall height and length... It's not a ton, but it is enough to affect pocket carry in some cases..

    Sorry for mimicking your post, I didn't see it until after I made mine, but spot on BTW..
