    Why only 4 rounds?

    You'll like the Mikas. It's stickier than the Nemesis, which is now in the holster box.

    4 rounds in the speed strips: 2 in each end with the gap in the middle. Far easier to quickly get two rounds in the cylinder at a time, rather than trying to "work around" the middle cartridge. I picked up the trick on another forum filled with 642 aficionados.

    Try it out. It may or may not work for your purposes, and like snubbies in general, most things are tradeoffs.

    I carry 5 in mine. I would load the 2 together, then the 3 if necessary. I too like having the space between them. I got the idea from a guy's avitar in this forum.

    Looks pretty darn close to the real deal, but you can tell it isnt. I'd pick one up just because if they are cheap.

    I can't believe they can reproduce S&W's copyrighted markings and sell over here. Just goes to show the Filipino level of honesty and integrity.

    I agree with you, you would'nt believe what they reproduce for export. I was told that the revolver I bought was export quality, some of the other guns are real rough to look at. But they do make nice conversation pieces.

    They do the same thing in Korea. I didn't notice any repro guns, but just about everything else can be made with a popular name brand label much cheaper.

    Do they make fake Colts too? I'm sure they would get more money per unit if they did.

    I guess you could classify my Charter Arms Bulldog .44 Special as a snubby. I will have it in my right front pocket tonight when I go to work. It will be residing in the K&D Pocket Defender holster shown with it here.



    Here is a different photo showing the Bulldog with the K&D Laredo holster, K&D dr_cmg gunbelt, and speed strip. The speed strip is a product sold by new member Blademan21.

    I guess that answers that!

    I've always been interested in the Bulldogs... I really like the 44 spc, even though it has become an oddball. Does it pocket carry comfy?

    AK, your 36 looks just like mine, and I really like the model 60... a fist full of 357 makes me smile.
