Hmm..i just had huuuge urge to get a SW or Ruger..
Here's my S&W Mod.66 (on the right), 640 (bottom). The 686+ is obviously not a snubbie, but it bullied its way into the picture.
You can always get this one...

I have a few snubbies: 642, 640, 60(357), M13 3 inch, M66 2 1/2 inch and the ultimate snubbie, a 629 3 inch. Steve48
My only snubbie at present is a Colt SF-VI, but I do have my eye on another...a S&W Model 15 Combat Masterpiece Snubnose (if it doesn't sell in the next few months).
I can only retread a previously posted photo of the snubbies around here.

The old square butt M&P 2-Inch and the round butt Model 10 2-inch are really the best of the bunch.
Having said that I most often (as in right now) tote a 4-inch Model 10 HB.
The 2-inch S&W Model 15 is the best looking snub-nosed revolver ever made in my view.
Thats a neat collection bmc.
"Just blame Sixto"
Everytime I look at the older snubbies, I think about it being the mainstay of LEO guns back in the day. I couldnt imagine going out hunting bad guys now with just a 5 shot J frame. I carry one from time to time now, but I always have security right behind me lurking in the shadows.
How times have changed...

Time to get this thread back on page 1!
Like sooooooooo many of my newfound friends, I pocket carry a 642 in a DeSantis Nemesis (waiting for the Mika round-cut pocket holster) loaded with Speer Gold Dot 135gr. +p short barrel rounds, and typically carry 4 rounds in a Bianchi speed strip.
It did take some SERIOUS range time before I was proficient with it (when compared to my 4" XD40).

S & W 642, Picked it up today at gunshow. Next is a LaserMax for it. I did not like how the CT fit my hand.
