    There's just something special about those 1911's.



    Thanks, hobobum!

    Just added the 638 and sold a 380 Bodyguard. Great trigger and it hides better than the longer barreled 637.
    Use the snub as a pocket and the 637 for iwb. What to get next?
    Be safe, Frank.

    Here are a couple shots of my Snubbies..............
    One is a Model 60 .357, the other is a 940, 9 MM and the last one is a Centennial Model 40 in 38 Special. If we are counting Auto's as Snubbies, well here is FireStar in .45 ACP. Last but not least is my Kahr PM9.........No the Model 940 isn't for sale!

    I took my 642 to the range and ran 2 cylinders of 135gr +p Gold Dots and about 50 rds of Speer Lawman 135gr range ammo through the little guy. That was about enough of that before switching to evil bottomfeeders in .40 and .22 for about 100 rds each.

    I got home and took the 642 apart (grips, side panel, and cylinder out, but left the internals alone). Even sealed up, it needed to be cleaned. I blew it out with some compressed air, blasted everything down with some Break Free CLP, blew it out again with some very light compressed air, and buttoned it up. SMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTH... It had been about a year of pocket carry since I had done a deep cleaning other than just bore and cylinder with a good wipedown after range sessions. It sure needed it.

    Cheers!

    For many years, I have thought that issue stocks with a Tyler T-grip was THE set-up for J frames. I've been carrying one J frame or another with this set-up since 1978.

    I recently traded for a used M-60, and it came with a set of Ahrends' smooth "Boot Grips". I wasn't too thrilled with their appearance, wood and finish-wise, but I sure did like the shape; hand-filling, yet 'way slimmer at the butt (where that counts) than anything I've seen yet.

    So I ordered two more pair, one in Cocobolo wood and the other in Goncalo Alves, both with a tung oil finish. They are simply gorgeous. Hope these pics get through...

    The 640 is sporting the Goncalo Alves, the 342 wears the Cocobolo, and the 360PD has the other set; I forget what they are called, but I put them on The Beast (my name for that obnoxious-shooting little bugger) because it is my EDC BUG, and gets thumped around pretty good at times.

    Cool

    Nothing fancy.

    A 3rd Generation 1974 Colt Detective Special bought a couple of weeks ago dirt cheap.

    Cleaned up and a Hays holster for the little filly and she went out today with her stablemate Ms. 36 for some double tap work from the holster at 7 yds.

    My long deceased uncle carried a Detective Special under his fat belly. I'd love to find one dirt cheap but even dirt cheap can be pricy when it comes to those Colts!

    I have a Ruger Security Six in 9mm with a 2 3/8" barrel. I carried it concealed for about 30 years, until I bought my Glock 19, and still find myself packing it every once in a while. It uses half-moon clips and I just drop 4 in my pocket when I carry. I've never seen another Ruger 9mm revolver but mine.

    After 42+ years of shooting I find myself using my snubbies more often than anything else. Had one too many reliable semi autos not fire at times. Too much to go wrong from springs, extractors, lubrication, mags, ammo, limp wresting, etc.. I can put my snubbie in a drawer and it will fire 20 years later.
