I have always liked small (J)frame revolvers with 3" barrels. It seems to balance right, just like a 4" on a K/L frame. I found I could CCW my 3" Rossi 68 just as well as (and in the same holster) my S&W 642. And I could shoot the Rossi much better, I believe due to the additional sight radius. Right now, S&W has their Model 60 in a Pro series with beautiful wood grips and a three inch barrel; Even the standard Model 60 3" is a beautiful piece; For me, I would only own a SP101 in 3 1/3 barrel length. That said, every once in a while, someone posts a pic of a M29 or M27 with a 3" tube and it looks great as well. Why do ya'll think the 3" isn't more popular? And how 'bout some pics of your 3" wheelies?
