    I have a Ruger LCP and i love the size however now i'd like a very small lightweight 38,i guess theres not really a so called pocket revolver but what are my options if any from this

    1. Very small easily concealable(carried in a pocket however realize prolly not likely)
    2. new
    3. 300 dollars or under
    4. Handles plus p ammo

    What are my options if any? Thanks

    If anyone has suggestions of 327 or other calibers that you think would fit i love to hear it,which i know rare calibers you run into ammo probs ect. Thanks again

    Rossi makes some nice snubs, so does Charter Arms and Taurus. Slightly more expensive than the Taurus in Ruger.

    No, Armscor makes one (linked: http://www.centerfiresystems.com/AC-M206.aspx) I don't have experience with them. Somone on the board bought a 4" .38 and pumped 200 rounds through it with no issues. Might be worth a look.

    I almost think that you can't go wrong for the price. $189.00... .38's are pretty basic guns. I doubt it is +p rated, but from a snub I don't think it is a big loss either way.

    My friend has one of the Armscor .38 snubbies and I was pleasantly surprised when I shot it. It worked very well for a gun with such a low selling price. The finish level wasn't the best but the mechanics were just fine. It also shot to POA at self-defense distances and was built like a brick you-know-what house. The spurless one with the 2" barrel is Model M206A and it weighs 25 ounces.
