    I prefer blued just for the less flashyness. but wouldn't pass on a great deal on a ss. Just too used to blued guns is all. Might break the mold and get ss one day. well unless you count my mark III

    Blue is pretty but I go for the stainless steal. The blue finish goes to pot if the gun is used a lot and is carried in a holster. A repair job to the blue finish doesn't look the same unless you get the gun completely redone. Corrosion is another problem.

    I have a SS S&W model 66-1 with 2-1/2" barrel, an aluminum S&W 342 Ti airlite, and a Colt Detective Special with original royal blue (http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...thread-44.html), have been thinking about a SS S&W model 60 with 3" barrel lately.

    PS, nice pair Sarge45!!!

    So what you are saying is that with me being a white male I can have my shirt raised when reaching for something in a store and a blue gun will not be seen as easily as a SS gun?

    Sorry but I must disagree, if you are going to war with a small country then you might need to uber conceal your gun for night ops. But us normal people that can legally open carry SS guns don't have a problem walking through wal-mart unnoticed. That blue gun will have the same amount of fire leaving the barrel in a night time gunfight also.

    Every hand gun I own is silver in some way, some all SS, some are two tone, but all have silver somewhere. It is all personal preference.

    I've been carrying a .38 revo in the field for years in all types of incliment weather, sweat, mud, blood, etc. I went through an old S&W M&P and two Rossi beaters, fighting rust almost daily before finally breaking down and carrying the S&W 637 for the last year. I've saved myself a lot of time and frustration by just needing to do a weekly wipe down under normal conditions, rather than daily inspection for corrosion. I'm also not concerned with the mythical night time flashyness of a matte finished SS handgun.

    Hmm, my first snubbie is a nickel finish Model 36. I picked up a stainless 686+ to keep the first one company. But I do like the look of a nice blue finish too.
    Something like this would round out the stable nicely
