    I have almost purchased the snubbie performance center 41 mag snub... then I came to my senses. $1000+ was not a comfortable expenditure at the time. It would have been a novelty for me, but would fit nicely with my other M57's. But my only use for it would be a woods carry gun and the 4" M57 works nicely for that.

    I think the pricing on the M58 Classic is about right. If I were interested in one, I'd buy it.

    X-15... I have one that fit my 6" Python nicely. I'll trade it for some greenbacks. Not sure where it is now, but I could probably find it. It is essentially brand new. Would have to check the fit on a M57/M29.

    That only works if you live in "Gods Country" ie "Heaven on Earth" where wealthy European-Americans reside and crime rate is next to zero. Examples are Manchester VT, Jackson Hole Wyoming,......Just a suggestion, but for all over Va one would needs Gen III G29sf or Gen IV G29 in Blade Tech 'Partial Eclipse' holster.

    Deaf Smith, have you ever fired one of those? I have. It's kinda sporty. A buddy had one for a while and it was the one gun at the range that just about every person that wanted to shoot it (and everybody did!) would fire it one time and then freak out when they saw what the cyl. release had just done to their thumb. (we warned them about that thumb, yes we did). We used a lot of Band-aids and ice. It was the absolute worst kicking N frame I have ever seen. Almost no one wanted to shoot it more than one time. I loved it. I shot it a lot. We both were rabid .41 mag handloaders and were always coming up with "the load" and trying it in that .41 snub. You just have to know what you're getting into and be ready for it. Elmer knew exactly what he was talking about.

    In one of my CHL classes a guy used a 3 inch Lew Horten .41 to qualify with. Used Silvertip Winchester .41s to!

    He did quite fine on the qualification and he let me shoot his. Yes kicked a bit but not as bad as my 629 'Backpacker' .44 3 inch snub.

    My favorite N frame snub right now is my 3 inch 625-3 .45 ACP. I use .45 Supers and 230 at 1000 fps (I chronoed it myself) ain't bad.

    If I got a .41 snub I'd handload 210 LSWC slugs at maybe 900 fps. Should be good general load.
