    First of all the 642 w/Crimson Trace. Bought this one for my wife, since she prefers revolvers for their simplicity. The CT grips were available, she liked the idea, so we went with them. It's turned out to be her constant companion, either purse or jacket pocket in the Mika Pocket Holster.

    It's a great little gun, given its 15 ounce weight (empty) and controllable .38 recoil. The trigger was rather heavy, so we had our local gunsmith put in a different spring kit and smooth things out a bit...it was $42 well spent.

    I recommend the 642 as a great value. When you check them out, they are reasonable in price, light in weight, and carry enough punch to get them out of the mousegun category.



    Now for my snubby, an S&W nickel 36, .38 with rosewood grips...one of 300 put out by S&W. It weighs in at 5 ounces heavier than the wife's 642, which is quite noticable when carrying in the pocket, much to my surprise. It still pocket carries nicely, and I've found that I carry it a lot more than I planned when I first got it a year ago at Christmas.

    Since I planned on it being a workhorse, I had the trigger job done on this one too, and the outcome was great. It's a bit lighter, not to the point of any danger, but it is certainly smoother.

    We love our little family of snubbies!




    Another pic of my 36, "Rosie", with a little more lighting.


    my apologies for high jacking the thread, I will post pic's of my S&W snubbie later, but...........

    JimmyC4, I was with the 1/28th Infantry Division of the Big Red One in Nam 1968-1969. Like it or not you are now my brother!

    Just a little thing I shoot. My Ruger 454 Alaskan. Its been said it sounds close to a small nuke when I fire it off.

    Built like a tank and fun factor is off the scale. (and so is the pain after about 20 rounds.)

    I carry an Sp101 in 357 an awful lot, I have two other pistols and love them both. I wouldn't trade or sell either of my pistols but I carry my snubbie more than anything else I own. I carry two speed loaders and I never feel under gunned. I don't have to mess with loading or unloading magazines all I have to do is put the SP in my holster and go. Very convenient and potent. The only drawback to a snub is ammunition capacity, and I wonder if that matters much, in a defensive scenario 5 rounds of 357 should do the trick. Anothet thing to consider a 357 snubbie is extremely versatile in winter i can use fullhouse 357 loads and in spring and summer when clothing is lighter 38special or 38+p can be used.

    I am interested in a 9mm snubby but have heard bad things about Taurus quality. Have you had any problems?

    None thus far approaching 200 rds in the past few days. But hardly a long term test I know. The good thing about revolvers is they can pretty much be diagnosed and assed without shooting one if you have it in your hands.

    As to 9mm in a snubby, I've been testing an assortment of loads and its really surprising by how wide a margin 9x19 outclasses 38spl coming right up to 357 magnum in terms of velocity. Best of all though it does this with a fraction of the recoil, flash and blast of 357 in a short bbl.

    Here's a more complete report on my 905
