I'm still in love with my 642 in a Nemesis or Mika. I've carried it now for about 6 years, splitting time with an even bottom feeding XD, but often together. The 642's aluminum frame is showing some chararcter with holster wear, but that is comforting in and of itself. Great little tool.
I've enjoyed this thread for years...
I'm still carrying around my .38 LCR. Being winter time it sits in my pocket with a 9mm on the belt. I am thinking about adding a SP101 to the line-up. 3" with DA/SA capability.
Nothing beautiful, but it does it's job and it does it well.
Some beautiful guns on here. I noticed alot of 3inchers , so if I may. Lousey picture I need to update.
You must not have read my post and understood it.
My point is that if you seek out ammunition to defend your life with at the darkest moment of your life, and you only have five or six rounds to do it with, it just makes sense to select the best available, rather than seek out an old school solution because it's "cool" that it happens to be from the same bygone era that the firearm design is from.
Some revolvers still have some sensible applications as a modern defense tool. My belief is that when employing a revolver (this includes all firearms) it makes sense to maximize the effectiveness of the tool. That's all.
When it comes to defending your life, choose whatever tools you wish... it's your life on the line, not mine.
Try the Rhino .357 snub ! 21st century pistol to go with my electronic cigarettes. Who said star trek was fake ! LOL
No problem, ctr. You do what you do and let the chips fall where they may.
My Ruger Security Six 2 3/4in barrel
My S&W 19-3 2 1/2" .357. I shoot mostly 38spl + P in it but it will handle the magnum loads. Although shown with the original wood grips, I carry it with Pachmayrs. 1974 vintage.
