    22lr carry for defense??

    22LR for a defensive carry caliber? No doubt it might be effective. But then again, it may well not be. It's the pipsqueak of calibers. But if it's the cartridge that aging or arthritic hands can manage best, it's certainly better than harsh words or a slipjoint pocket knife. But for my...

    My Favorite S&W Model

    I have a number of S&W revolvers in calibers from 22LR up to 45acp. I'd be hard pressed to name one a single favorite. Maybe the 3" Model 13 in 357mag. All have Tyler T-grips, which make the stocks fit my fat hand so well.

    Your Favorite Revolver Platform

    For me, it's the S&W K-frame. With a Tyler T-grip, it just fits my hand so very well. Must be a reason they were the sidearm of choice for US LE for half a century.

    Boker Kalashnikov. Keep it in a small pouch on my belt and find myself using almost daily. The auto open feature is very handy.
