    Not quite. Federal started making the round in the 1980's. There was another company prior to that that made something similiar in the late 70's I believe. In the 80's it was all part of the hysteria/myth about piercing bullet proof vests and all that nonsense.

    Your photo reminded me that my 696 (3" bbl) fits the definition of snubby.

    I know that this is a older post in this thread. But does anyone know what grips are on this?

    Not entirely on topic, but I did leave my beloved 1911 behind tonight in favor of pocket carrying my .357 snubbie.

    I don't care how much you love your Glocks, your Springfields, your M&Ps, your Berettas, or whetever else it is you love; pick up a snubbie and you will feel safer and more confident than ever before.

    I'm reasonably certain the NyClad bullet was the result of an effort to reduce airborne lead emissions in regards to use in indoor ranges.

    On another note... apparently S&W is paying attention. A local dealer here had their annual "S&W blow-out" sale this past week-end, and was selling 642s for $350 + tax. Good price on the "gold standard" snubby, but what got my attention was the box. Gone is that expensive plastic one-size-fits-all monstrosity, replaced by a variation of the old "tri-fold" cardboard box that replaced the gusseted-corner "blue box".

    Two friends bought one each. Both have neither the time nor the extra funds to wait on/pay for a no-lock example. The lock is easily dealt with, and was done so on these two. The quality of both revolvers is excellent. And it would appear that they passed on the savings they realized regarding the cheaper box to the consumer.

    At any rate, the snubby is alive and well. I wasn't very impressed with the LCR, but the J frames continue to please; lock or no lock.

    Got another snubbie tonight. 649 in nickel, no lock. For 370, I couldn't resist. I love the old humpbacks.

    When I left the military in the mid-1970's, I preferred a .380 Walther PPK/S for CCW as a civilian. When I became a Fed I was at first a bit unenthusiastic that I would be restricted to revolvers, but quickly realized the rounded contours of a 2" J-frame actually concealed as easily as the PPK/S (The rear end of the Walther's slide and grip always seemed to protrude under a shirt.). Moreover, the mandated .38 158gr. +P SWCHP definitely outclassed any .380, even from a 2" barrel. It was always easy to pack 18 spare rounds, 6 in the pictured 2X2 pouch, and a Bianchi Speed Strip in each jacket pocket, (though I carried a 4" K-frame when in coat-and-tie). I also trimmed some speed strips to 5 rounds so one or two would conceal in the watch pocket of my Levi's, but recently I found there are some Speed Strip knockoffs that come configured for 5 rounds:

    I have yet to find a trustworthy .40, 9mm, or even a .380 semiauto significantly smaller than a J-frame Smith.

    Bugdude: Nice new acquistion in the 649.. great shape for the money you paid.. though it would be stainiless steel not nickel.. unless it's a nickel model 49. I like the extra frame metal in the bodyguards and the centenials for strength..

    Ditto. And when I joined the State Police, I was highly annoyed that I couldn't carry a 1911.

    Boy, did _I_ have a lot to learn...

    But I carried a J frame of one sort or another my entire career, usually as a back-up but occasionally as an off-duty piece.

    Still do.

    I found some NOS dymondwood grips for my 442 at a gun show last weekend and added a BK grip adapter ( BK Grips | 2-Clip Grip Adapters for Revolvers ) to them.



    The BK adapter fits great and he ships very fast. I orderd it Monday and got it on Friday.
