    Mrs. Stove's New Smith

    Just got back from the LGS where we were picking up our new bundle of joy.

    Smith & Wesson Model 40, nickel plated .38 Special lemon squeezer.

    I like the contrast on the ejector rod.

    And next to my Glock 26 for comparison.

    1 7/8" barrel, +P rated. Can't wait to get it out to the range.

    Sharp !!!! been a looooooong time since I have looked at wheel guns..I have a 26 also and your pic next to the 26 was a surprise to me...would never have though the S&W would have been larger but it sure looks it. would love to see a pic of the S&W on top of the 26 if you can do that without damage to either one.

    As you wish...

    The pic is a little deceiving.... with them muzzle to muzzle the grip safety on the Smith is actually even with the rearmost bottom part of the Glock's handle. The handle is about 1/4" - 3/8" longer than the Glock. Very close in size, kind of surprised me as well.

    Thank you.....as I said I am surprised.......I guess the J frames have to be larger for the grip but for the life of me I don't know why. Thanks again...great pic......

    The shop here had one and I wanted it pretty bad but he was just way to high on it for some reason. I have always liked the cool looks of that model but have never had one...yet. Hope it works out good for you. May you always shoot it for fun.

    Forget that! Shut the light off and leave the house for a couple hours.
