    For those who haven't seen this. Old toy snubnose commercial. You'd never see this on tv today. Hope it's not a dupe.

    The wife and I have recently been enjoying watching old "Highway Patrol" episodes from the 50's on youtube. Lot's of snubby brandishing from Broderick Crawford. I'd heard he carried a Model 10 2" but I've only seen a D Special. The troopers and bad guys have an assortment--Official Police, Model 10's, Police Positive. The troopers carried in those cool "Safety Speed" clamshell holsters. Funfact--Broderick was something of a drunk and had his license revoked at some point. They had to film on private roads so he could drive:) I credit Highway Patrol and Dragnet, 2 of my favorite shows as a little kid, for my love of snubbies. (Lots of old Dragnet episodes now on archive.org.)

    Thought I would add a "family photo" Included the model 27 with 3" barrel even though it technically isn't a snubby.

    I did not have time to go though all 77 pages but I have a tarus ultra light with gold accents on the trigger, hammer and cyclinder latch that I just love. Oh yes , it shoots well too.

    Yesterday we went out to shoot. Took all three of the LCR's out with us. I decided to check and see what the recoil difference was between the .357 with stock rubber grips and .38's loaded, it being a little heavier than the standard, and the standard .38 with wood grips and the same .38 ammo in it. I fired one round at a time from each gun, using one hand, alternating between guns until all 5 shot from both guns were fired. To be honest, I could not tell the difference in recoil. This is shooting one handed. I love my wood gripped .38 LCR. My favorite carry gun! Light weight, easy to shoot, and because of the rounded, shrouded concealed hammer housing, it's easy to conceal and doesn't have a point sticking out like I get from a semi-auto with a slide.

    Got to love them LCR's

    tkruf, you should go for an LCR in every color.

    Waiting on a S&W 442 to arrive. First snub in 30 years. Had an airweight years ago. Should have held on to it.
    This should do it. After what I've seen in this thread. Been a great thread.
    Thanks
    Randy
