    That's an early 1950s Military & Police 2-inch, a model which later became the Model 10.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I've got a pair of Ruger SP 101, one has the bobbed hammer , the other is the standard hammer. I've got Concealco IWB and also Mika pocket holster for them. I've also got a nickle Colt Detective Special and a Charter Arms Under cover in stainless. I'm think about adding a S&W Airweight to the collection in the near future.

    SIXTO, for the most part I find the Bulldog very comfortable as a pocket carry. It's not as comfy as carrying the Colt Mustang, but it is also bigger and more powerful.

    The only real difficulty I have with the Bulldog in the pocket relates to bending over to pick up something from the floor. I carry it in the right front pocket and I end up sort of stepping forward with the left leg and so that the right hip stays mostly straight and the left knee bends. I am 60 years old and many of my peers do that anyway so no one notices. Younger people might of might not be able to pull it off. Of course a pocket about 3/4" deeper would help. In my Dockers the grips are just a fraction of an inch below the pocket opening. Other pants might have a deeper pocket.

    Is the finish on that Taurus called "Bright Spectrum blue", or something like that? I remember reading an article on Taurus some years back and seeing a photo of a .44 Special snub whose finish looked just like that. I really wanted that gun, but I don't think they make it anymore.

    I thought that the rather iridescent, "now you see it, now you don't" look of the light blue was very eye-catching and chic.

    No photos, but sometimes carry an SP101 (3.06" barrel) .357 mag. I originally bought it as a Tackle Box Gun but it's accuracy & durability soon earned it a place in my CCW options. Also have a 2" S&W 12-2 (M&P) Lightweight .38 spl. (RB). But it was my father's (never carried) house gun & is in such wonderful condition that it's now officially a family heirloom tucked away in the safe.

    .38+P is a standard .38 Spl round that is loaded to increased pressure (to obtain a higher velocity)

    .38 Super is a Automatic Pistol round developed in the 1920's see link Click Here

    I had an 850 a while back and researched different stocks as the sotck rubber ones didn't fit my hand well... Hogue and Eagle make real nice ones. I opted for a set of stocks that come on thier fancy models. They were rosewood colored laminate, they were cheap but looked good. I got them off an obscure website and I'm glad I can't remember because I DONT recommend them. They were kinda thick and weren't properly relieved for a speed loader. Of all the stocks I've seen and read up on you want Eagle Grip Secret Service stocks. They come in rosewood and ebony(real wood), checkerd or smooth and are designed to be functional and good looking check out the sight Styles - Secret Service They will cost some $ but they are worth it IMHO.
    In God we trust, everyone else keep your hands where I can see them.

    Those bead blasted Gemeni Sp101 have got to be the best looking snubs out there.
