    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.

    I was out of the snubbie club for a while but I am back in a new shiney version. 1975 Detective Special in Nickel. Put a quick polishing on it and took some pictures to show off.

    I just picked up a Ruger LCR .38 last weekend and took it to the range on Tuesday.

    7022505373_4b6e111e5e_c.jpg

    This was the result of the first five rounds of Remington Golden Saber 125gr+P from the box shown above. Range was about six yards with a triple tap followed by a double. You can see how that worked out by the groups. Those +P pills sure pack a bark!

    7022502941_dd9d5d4894_c.jpg
    Turns out a 6o'clock hold was NOT necessary.

    Five rounds of Golden Saber in the weapon with 2-5rd speed strips holding four rounds each (easier to load the cylinder that way) accompany me quite a bit lately.

    Picked this up for a song: a Rossi in .357 Magnum.



    She's about the size of your average J frame, but all steel. When she runs empty, I can always beat them to death with her. And she shoots plenty nice, too.

    Thank you. They came with the gun when I bought it. I believe they standard on this model. I also have a 625-10 (45 ACP snubby) and it has the same grips.

    It is a wonderful gun. Please pardon the quality of the cell phone photos. The holster I use is from El Paso Saddlery:
    Snap-Off Elite Thumbreak

    The photos do not do it justice.
