    It's Raining Smith & Wesson Model 36's and 60's in .38 Photo Thread!

    Let's see your 36's and old fashioned 60's! I am a huge fan of these j-frames!

    A little over a month ago I had no 36's in my collection. But after diligently paying attention to my local gun forum I've managed to pick up three Model 36's. The first two are here:



    And today I managed to pick up this round butt no-dash 36. SN puts her in the 1976-77 time frame. It came without the original grips, so I put on some Ahrend's.







    (Yes, that's a little slinky in the background. One of my daughters must have been at my computer)


    I think it goes well with my 60-3 I picked up several weeks back:



    I have a smile on my face. There's something about these Model 36's and the early 60's in .38 only, as if when you are holding them you think "This is how a small snubby should be."

    You must have a lot of old classy gentlemen with an excess of classy snubs to sell off down in Georgia. I have only seen one model 36 or 60 up for sale on any of my forums lately, and someone else got to it before I could.
    I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    I carried a Mod 36 2 inch bbl, blued as my off-duty carry in the 80s. With the full spur hammer, it worked best in a shoulder rig.
    Carried it for many years. I really wanted the 3 inch bbl "Chief's Special", but never found it. The 3 inch had better ballistics, which was more important back then.

    Thesedays, with modern bullet technology & better propellants, these 'snubbies' are far more effective than they were in the years they were made.

    I have a 2 inch snubbie right here next to my laptop. Love it !

    I have never seen a centennial with the grip safety. Very nice piece for any SW collection!
