    They don't get used much, carried some. Colt Cobra, 1974. S&W Model 12 Airweight, early 60's. Both good shooters and easy to carry and they use the same holster and ammunition. DSCF1614.JPG

    Nice looking "light weights" and ammo box! I was thinking picture I had taken included Western ammo...but it's Winchester. Nice model 12 S&W...jealous here.

    Started out with a lightweight nickel plated S&W Model 38. Great little pocket revolver that served me well for many years. Eventually I traded it in on something else and didn't have another until I finally got around to getting a Model 638 a few years ago to carry in warmer weather (have a Model 649 for the colder months).

    32mag.JPG Total Titanium works out well for a light carry gun.

    Here's the other end of the spectrum from classic Colts and S&Ws - the polymer 3" LCRx. Weighs right at 1lb loaded with 5 158gr SWCs.

    I had a Model 12-2 that was my carry gun for a number of years. Darn silly of me to trade it off. :(

    I still have a couple though.

    Smith & Wesson 642 "Lady Smith". My wife's EDC. She thinks the grips are "pretty." So do I actually.

    And a recently acquired Smith & Wesson 396-1 in 44 Special. Alloy frame, titanium cylinder. 3.5 barrel, round butt. Weight 18 ozs.

    I've only fired a half box of Magtech "Cowboy Loads" in it, but it's a good shooter. Recoil, with those loads is not bad at all. I doubt I'll ever shoot anything more powerful in it, but I do have a holster and Speed Strips for it. :)

    I also have a Model 12 (2" round butt) and a 1968 vintage Colt Cobra (built the way the new "Cobra" should have been). These beautiful revolvers have been two of my favorite EDC guns for a long time but I will soon be carrying an ugly Ruger LCR, chambered in .327 Federal Magnum, instead.
