    Excellent, NC Buckeye! Especially with the history behind it. The Dick Special is a classic, and still a great CCW. Pics of mine, as well as my young bride's Cobra are already posted in this thread.

    A well carried, hand-me down classic pony, it doesn't get much better than that.

    I carry nothing but snubbies anymore. After having two factory recalls over the years and constant firing line jams with pistols, a revolver is the only thing I will carry. I carry a Taurus 85 with Crimson Trace and a Ruger LCR with Crimson Trace. Ankle holsters are my preference down a cowboy boot but lint is a killer for most carries‘. Not a snubbie. Always dependable. Strip clip in the watch pocket conceals great.
    Never forget the ones we have lost in the past, but always focus on the future.

    The way I look at it is that snubbies are extensions of the hand with bolts of lightning coming out of the barrel.

    Typically, you are limited to five to seven rounds.
    You gotta like the S&W alphabet soup, though.

    Here's my wife's snubbie I bought her years ago. She got out of the habit of carrying it when our child was born. She getting back in the habit more now.

    Nice snubs. I'm on the look out for a nice Colt now. My 36 and 442 are regular carry guns at this point, however, the 36 doesnt see much use. It is amazing the difference in the old Smiths vs. the new.

    Oh well, I needed to bring this thread back from near death.

    I had been researching and toiling over a possible pocket gun for quite awhile now. I was leaning heavy on a LCP, but the 380 is just too nonexistent, then to a PM9, or a Smith 340, or old 36. Now I think I have decided to get a snub and wait for the PM9. The 340 is really appealing to me right now, but If I can find a great 36 for a decent price all bets are off.

    Wow, does that sound like me (and I'm sure half this board). The song is "If I Had a Million Dollairs". Sure I'd buy her a house, a green dress and a K car...but then I'd get myself all the guns you mentioned above and a few more.

    Talking

    Here's my new to me S&W model 60 .38 special. Bought it today, had it in the back of my mind for a while now, came across it today in one of the local shops. Left came home to pack for vacation(going to nags Head all next week for a family reunion), and I couldn't get it out of my head, so I packed up my S&W 342 Ti Airlite, which I never really liked and went back. They traded me for the airlite plus $100.00 for the model 60
    First photo is with the wood stocks, second is with its big brother (my k-frame 66-1) with matching packmyr compact grips. May buy a tyler t-grip to try out like on my Det. spcl., we'll see.

    WHEW! Took me a couple days, but I got through it all. I just had to keep wiping the drool off my keyboard. Nice revos.
