    Cool

    After picking up a Model 60 a few weeks ago I ordered a set of Eagle Secret Service grips for it.

    My hand is a bit large for the factory j-frame grips and these new grips make the fit just right.

    The front strap is covered like a t-grip with the back strap and butt left open.

    The side panels add just enough girth to fill my hand and the rosewood adds a little pop to the Model 60.

    In an era of high capacity polymer semi-autos the S&W j-frame remains a firearms classic.

    Here's my latest score.

    A 1st generation Charter Arms Undercover .38 from their Bridgeport factory. Don't know when it was made, but the Bridgeport guns ran from 1965 to 1974, IIRC.

    This little gun looks like it spent the last 40 or so years in somebody's sock drawer, because it's in fantastic shape. All I had to do was clean it up because there was old lint and dust all over it.

    Well lowercase; that one's interesting because of its condition. Had a good friend years ago with one just like it. I shot it on occasion and it gave a reasonable performance.

    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.
