Everyone here knows that you cannot defend yourself with a snub nose revolver. 5 shots are not enough. You need a high capacity, large caliber auto with 33 round mags to really defend yourself. Who cares if it weighs 4 pounds. Can you really trust 1800's technology anyways? Steel rusts, and those stupid airweights rob our precious rare metals like scandium. Do yourself a favor, buy a GLock or Sig....(major LOL placed here) BTW, it will allow me to buy more snubbies in the future Here are a few of my own that i carry each day.
