    Although I have several SA, including 1911 compacts, Kahr P9, and a G26 I seem to pick up my 642 more often than any of them. I must admit I carry the KT P3AT most often.

    I also have a M 640 .357 and a M 60 3" .357. The M 60 has excellent sights, and is not much harder to conceal than the M640. If the shot had to be taken at 25 or more yards, the M 60 might be the most accurate, and fast to get on target with its adj and large sights.

    I am glad I do not have to choose which to keep and which to sell. All fit a need and I would hate to give any up. I think I would keep the M 642 if I had to keep only one revolver.

    Everyone needs a snubby, and I think a light weight one which spells something like a .38 Spl M 642 or similar. I like to carry the lightest gun I think will do the job.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Very few will equal it and NONE will ever surpass it.

    Three polite questions.

    Why a reinforced mouth for OWB?

    There must be a belt loop behind the gun, does that push it out?

    Why buy the smallest Smith revo, and put on grips the size of a potato?

    This my snubby. It is a 1965 model Colt Detective special. I often carry it, especially in hot weather when a larger gun is more difficult to conceal.

    I'll be getting my snubbie next week-Whoo Hoo. I've been coveting little "Smithy" for 36 years and it will soon be mine!
    Yup Dad has finally agreed to sell it to me.
    Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief Special nickel plated 650 rounds on it since 1972, complete with 3 holsters, ammo, original wood grips, aftermarket rubber grips and the currently installed CT grips!!!

    Congrats Rugergirl. Snubbies are awesome. And unlike potato chips, they won't make you fat.

    Do tell Celticredneck, what holster is that?
