This is a discussion on Another snubby. within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I’ve had a very nice blued Model 19 2 ½ for quite a while which is great for every day carry. So for more formal ...
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Pretty. I've never been a fan of the too-slim market grips, but nice gun.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I love the 2 1/2" k-frame Smiths. Good choice.
Boy, you do have it bad! Nice gun though!

How true,you can never have enough snubbies for cc .How about a Ney York Reload ? I'd like to have one but the snubnose holds it's value for ever.
My brother, whom I don't stand too close to when there is a thunderstorm, has two of them, which he got only months apart.
One was near perfect, and the other was very dirty and unkept.
He worked and worked on that one for a couple weeks, and now it looks every bit as good as the near mint one.
I think they are one of Smiths better pistols of all time.

That's a VERY NICE M19. I've got my eye on a M10 snubby that's rough finished but mechanically tight & shoots dead point-of-aim with 158 gr. ammo. I'm trying to get it at the right price and, since there's little/no collectibility, after a tough, modern refinish, I plan to (happily) put in into my EDC rotation. K frames rock!

SWEET!!! M19s in snub and standard barrel lengths are on my wish list. Thanks for satisfying the S&W gun porn need while bmcgilvray is away!

Nice family pictures.

Nice pick-up! I can see a special set of wood combat grips on that one.
