I plead guilty once again. I had some free time yesterday so I indulged myself and visited a gun shop (or more than one...).
I found an interesting item. I already have a Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief's Special. It's a great little gun and it is Smith's modern incarnation of that classic. In fact, it is part of Smith's "Classics" series, or so their website tells me.
Anyway I happened upon another one of those "Classics", one without an internal lock. It is a Model 40- it has a (unique to revolvers?) kind of squeeze-off/un-squeeze-off safety. Much like the beavertail on a 1911 or the safety on an XD.
The doggoned gun is occupying my spare moments- I LOVE my Chief's Special for many reasons- old skewl kewl looks, straight shooting, easily concealable (very easy to stick in a pocket) and reliable, to name a few.
The 40 looks like it would be much the same, with the added advantages of no hammer to worry about when being pulled, it would fit in my J-frame holsters, and that squeezer-eezer is pretty cool.
It also has that (very) old school ("classic"?) look.
Does anyone have one of these? Has anyone ever had one of these-like back in the day?
Talk to me...like the bad guy in "Dirty Harry", "I gots ta know!"
