These pics have been posted before ........ but, my SP-101 which saw carry duty for about a year and my first carry which was the old and much holster-worn M85.
These days a snub is relegated to a spare "grab'n'go" here and there.

I just read up on the .327 Federal Magnum, looks like a good defensive cartridge but its not comparable to the 357 Magnum (it’s being advertised that it is). More realistically its closer to 9mm luger. Still looks pretty good though. I was dead set on buying a 357 snubbie but will have to look at this new cartridge for a bit. -- Like that ruger's new revolver is a six shot cylinder, hoping maybe S&W might chamber their M&P snubbie line in this new cartridge!
The Federal .327 Magnum is running here:
Of course, if you happen to own the new Ruger SP-101 in this caliber, feel free to post your pics here.
Otherwise, let's leave the discussion of the cartridge to the other thread.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
it does, doesnt it? I went and tried a 340pd compared to a 442... wow!

I have 2, a SP101, 357 mag with a 2 1/4 inch barrel; and my favorite, a S&W 629 with a 3 inch barrel 44 mag. My flame thrower.

I apologize for digressing...now back to your local snubbie show...
My S&W model 36 in Kramer MSP paddle with Simply Rugged speed strip pouch, all on a Liger gun belt.
but I do have a wonderful snubby. Smith and Wesson prelock model 10 2". Carries and shoots like a dream. Mine has 135 grain Speer GDHPs in the cylinder. Best hand me down I ever got. Over summer I'll likely pick up a S&W 642 and a Ruger Sp101 or GP100. What can I say. I just love revolvers.

"Just blame Sixto"
For a long time I carried a Stainless Ruger Speed-Six .357 with a 3" barrel as a primary with my Ruger SP-101 .357 as a BUG.
It was a great combo that I still go with from time to time.
Nothing like a brace of Stainless Rugers to carry you through a trip on the mean streets at night.
No pics yet, but I did finally get a nice digital camera! Woo Hoo!
Still learning how to drive it though.
Someday soon, I'll be able to start posting pics.
