    Ultimate urban defensive gun - OMG it's Nickel!

    So I am on Gun Broker because my GAS (Gun Acquisition Syndrome) is acting up and I come across a NIB, 1985 Model 38 in 99% and I have to click Buy It Now. I mean the nickel is more reflective than mirrored glass. I order a pair of Dajim grips - www.dajimgungrips.com - took 5 weeks to come from Thailand. This bad boy will simply knock out the BG with its reflecto mama bling power. Once in a while, perfection overcomes a corroded world.20130428_174304.jpg20130428_174125.jpg

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    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.

    Don't laugh, nickel handguns were quite common in law enforcement community back in the day....nickel .45 1911s, Model 19 .357 Mags and many others. I carried a nickel Smith and Wesson Model 57 .41 Mag for a short time in the early '80s...and a nickel 1911 .45 ACP in the late '70s...

    Nice looking smith....
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I like the shrouded hammer! Plus old school, no stupid little lock that rattles. Should be easy to clean. Hope you shoot em often.
