    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."

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    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!
