    The grips are Altamont boot grips in the silver/black color. The model 36 has the same grips in walnut. They cost $42 at this website:

    New to the forum... just plowed through this entire thread.

    Some things are timeless; snubbies are one such item.

    I've been carrying one or another sort of J-frame as a back-up/off duty piece since 1978. Now that I'm retired... I STILL have one on me at all times. Finally scored a pre-lock 342 last year... nirvana.

    Been looking for a pre-lock 317 2"; as I age, arthitis and many years of shooting are making the recoil of the these super-light J-frames intolerable after just a few rounds of .38; even wadcutters. Getting old sucks...

    I would settle for a 2" round butt Kit Gun (M-34 steel, M-35 alloy), but the few of these I've seen were priced in the stratosphere.

    Boy... how nice would it be to run across a Centennial in .22LR? Too bad S&W never made that version...

    My Snubbies

    One for colder weather (Ruger Speed Six 2 3/4") and one for summer pocket carry (S&W 642). The 642 just arrived and I haven't even had a chance to shoot it yet... going to the range tomorrow!

    Well, in this neck of the woods just a year ago I coud buy a good condition Detective for half of that and there were plenty to choose from. Pythons, Diamondbacks, Boas, yeah they were pretty high but the poor Detectives seemed to be in large numbers around here with lower prices......

    The point of my post was that asking $700 or $750 for a gun that lists for $792 is not price gouging. Asking $1000 would be gouging.

    Since this is a photo thread:

    I would love to have the blued "sister" 24 as a companion. Maybe I will run across one in the near future. My 624 is a bit of a "collectors" gun these days. Although taken care of it is "used" not stuffed away in a safe never to see the light of day. I'm not a NIB kind of guy. If I can't shoot it from time to time I won't own it. I'm about to close the deal on a very lightly used, single owner 1972 6" nickle Colt Python. Can't wait to enjoy it too. Thanks!

    I joined the snubbie club last week with a S & W 642 and pocket holster. I have a Browning BDA380, but after getting my CC license I decided I wanted something easier to hide. So far I'm liking the revolver. I just need to shoot it more to increase my accuracy. The only problem is finding ammo these days. I luckily got 2 boxes when I bought the gun, but everyone has been out of stock since my purchase. I've been shooting sparingly till I can stock up.

    I currently have three snubbies, all which were inherited, two from my Dad....S&W M66 2-1/2" barrel, and a j frame 342Ti. The other was my Uncles gun, a colt detective special made in 1960. I was at the range today shooting the K-frame, the Det. Special, and my python, the det. special seems to have an issue with its cylinder. I was shooting Winchester brass ammo and every other cylinder it would stop rotationg when the trigger was pressed. I left it with the smith at the shop to see if he could figure it out. It's happened before, but with cheap ammo. hope its nothing serious as I love this little gun, just put a tyler t-grip on that made it really comfortable to shoot.

    Around here they've all been high for the last three years or so. I hope you were able to get one at the lower price if you wanted one.
