    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    It's inside the frame, it only works in double action.

    ahh, so there is a hammer, cool. If you take 2 identical revolvers except for that thing, how would you compare one vs. another. Any benefit of having one that looks like on that picture? or it's just the looks?

    No external hammer means that there is no chance of it getting caught on clothing during the draw... no sharp edges.

    I have some very bad news for you. It won't be a cure to your fever...only a minor relief for a few moments...the fever will be back, and stronger than ever.

    There is no 'cure'...

    Pretty sure it is the same as an identical model with an external hammer, except of course that you cannot fire it in single action so every shot is a hard double action trigger pull.

    Ah, dragon beat me to it. Wifey has one, I'm okay with it in her purse, just not in my holster.... I swear, seems my .45 is MUCH more pleasant to shoot!
