    Thanks man,

    This is my first revolver, and with the boot grip she feels so good in the hand and points effortlessly.

    Agreed... the bodyguard is like the humpback cousin, hehe... I originally purchased a nice 640 internal hammer .38 version however it developed cylinder latch problems so i swapped it for the bodyguard.. the 640 is gorgeous and the internal hammer is much smoother but i'm growing to like the bodyguards snag free profile and ability to shoot single action.. So far it's a great shooter with low recoil.

    Cool

    The 649 as an "Old School Gat" yeah that's a good name to call it.

    I've been carrying bottom feeders for SD for many years, but now as a retired LEO I have been rotating some of my snubbies into the mix.

    P.S. Badger does make a good looking grip.

    Thanks. It is probably one of the best looking handguns I own. It is very manageable with standard pressure 240gr loads. The XTP 200 & 240gr rounds really wake it up.

    People can say what they want about snubbies, but who is going to argue with a .44?

    I really like that LCR .22 and I plan on getting one in .38 and .22

    If the Old Model Vaquero is 5 1/2", is it still a snubbie like the 4" 500?

    Here is a 35 cal for thin skins,
    a 41 250 gr for Black bear,
    a 45 300 gr for brownies,
    and a 500 440gr for Jurassic Park,

    with some bottom feeders for comparison.

    Older Style .38 Special M640 and M649 with Crimson Trace Laser Grips, along with a newly acquired M642.


    I bought the M642 when I saw that they were being produced without the lock!

    These are for those rare times when I can't manage to hide one of my Glock 27's (I have yet to find a smaller trustworthy semiauto*).

    Wife prefers the pictured Federal Nyclads in the 640 and 649 for her primary carry.

    Neither of us is interested in a .357 snub!

    *...and yes, I have tried 9mm/.380 Kahrs and the Beretta Nano!...Hmmm..., maybe a Seecamp .380 someday?

    S&W Chief Special 3 inch

    S&W Chief Special 3inch HB

    When I started as a cop (1981) most agencies around here carried S&W Revolvers, mostly K frames. Among the more knowledgable shooters, the 3 inch Chief's Special was a very popular off duty & backup gun. I bought the first one I ever fired. (A friend made me a deal. I made the last payment on the day President Reagan was shot).

    At that time the County Traffic Police was separate from the Sheriff's Department (they merged in January of 1982). Among the avid shooters there was one group that carried S&W Auto pistols. (Many of them carried Walther PP or PPK or PPK/S pistols as hideout guns); another group that carried Colt Pythons (with Detective Specials as hide-out guns) and a final group that preferred the Smith & Wesson revolvers, mostly 5 inch Model 27s. And ALL those guys had 3 inch Chief Specials for hideout guns.

    I always thought the 3 inch J frames balanced better and looked cooler. .

    I currently own an M36 with the 3 inch tapered barrel, an M36 with the 3 inch heavy barrel, an M60 stainless with the 3 inch heavy barrel, and a (now-discontinued) M650 3 inch heavy barrel in .22LR, that I use as a "practice gun" for the other two.

    Originally, for service ammo I used the S&W Nyclad 125 grn "Chief's Special" load, later made by Federal .

    Then I switched to the WW 158 grn Lead SWC HP +P and then to the Federal 129 grn Hydro-Shock HP. Iwas about to switch to the Speer 135 grn +P HP, but then the PD made a change in policy and mandated the use of Hornady Critical Defense FXT hollowpoints for any secondary or concealment guns, and so Iím using the 110 grain hollowpoints.

    I usually carry the guns in a traditional leather IWB holster with a thumb break retainer, and reloads are Bianchi speed strips or HXS speedloaders carried in a Safariland 371 split six speedloader carrier.

    Oh wow, I knew about Dan Wesson interchangeable barrels, but didn't realize they were available in 2". Dig that squared-off underlug! I'm sure the 36 is a much handier carry, but that Dan Wesson is the bees knees.
