    Here’s one pretty example, and a couple which could be called ugly but which I still really enjoy.

    And here’s a cool fireball I got on film shooting that last one with some of that vintage black powder .32S&W. A third of the rounds were total duds, of the ones that fired about a third will either stick in the barrel or fly down range almost fast enough to break paper, and the rest are at or near their full original strength.

    Well for carry and for practice carry (but also useful while fishing), I tote the following: a M-60 Smith with a M-63 .22 as an understudy.

    Like 'em both, but the .357 has a much better DA trigger than the .22....probably the multi-thousand live and dry fire rounds through it.

    Holsters for same, home built, and interchangeable, OWB types. Hogue Mono-grip does well with 1000 fps .357 loads, but the ancient Smith finger grip wood stocks are a hellofa lot prettier...note the rear view emphasizing the profile differences. Side view shows the Mono's protection for the 2nd finger knuckle-rap so prevalent with many 'boot' type combat grips. YMMv, Rod

    These are most of my snubbies that are chambered for either 32 Long, 32 magnum, or 327 Federal Magnum.

    I always love snubs. Was a fan of long barrel revolvers, but later found that the short ones look better. Well, except Model 10 with 6-8 inch cone barrel, that one is uniquely beautiful. 686s are my favorites, the proportions are just right.
