    I would want to double check if pre lock ..But a decent price for non import 38 gun that should hold up well to wear

    Need a under 400 tackle box gun?-image.jpeg

    I really like a 4 inch barrel 357mag as a knock around gun ( checking fence line bumping around the barn and such) ... But the weight was the only draw back .. I found this older Charter Bulldog Target 1977ish ... Light ,..21oz light ...a bit lively with 357mag ... But easy to carry ... and with rat shot ... Its heck on snakes and one mole that I wacked

    I replaced the walnut grips with Charter rubber combat style grips

    That is an excellent choice, you can’t go wrong with a classic S&W revolver and a Model 64 predates the lock by many years.

    Try to find good used not abused S&W in the following models; 64, 65, 66, or 67. The 64 and 67 are .38 Special, the 65, and 66 are 357 Magnum but will safely fire .38 Special. A barrel length of 2.5 inch - 4 inch should be about right. A 3 inch barrel is nearly perfect for a tackle box gun.

    That revolver on that link you posted would be a great gun for that purpose...and I think the price is very fair, also.

    Apparently typical contents of a "tackle box" are not entirely what I assumed.
