    Yup! Hope to see you out there one of these days, Pauli!

    Ahh, that would be sweet. You might also want to check out the Security-Six snubs (2.75" barrels). Can't believe I almost sold my 4"! :eek:

    "Force" is such an ugly word ... I prefer to say inspire. :D

    "wot's it do?"
    "it inspires the bullets to fit in the barrel."

    And buy a shotgun while you're there buying the snub! :neener:

    BONUS points if you have a snub shotgun ! :cool:

    I obviously looked up the wrong model... the 65 has the 4" BBL though doesn't it?

    reaching waaaaaaay back in the vault... this is a 2.5" barrel 65. The trigger is average. Which is to say, it's heavy and long in double action, light & crisp single action. and it's not a DAO, just DA... it still has single action.

    I've got a hogue mono grip on it...

    And you want how much for it?

    Also, where do I find a snub shotgun?

    probably 200 - about what I paid for it.
    [disclaimer] This gun had reduced power springs from Wolff installed, then uninstalled going back to stock. The reason? even one step lower on the spring resulted in some ammo not going off, so I went back to stock at least on the hammer spring. With this spring, it has been reliable.

    (yes, I know it's more than a 3" barrel)

    Sent you a PM ... I want that shotgun. I suppose that for a shotgun that qualifies as a snubbie

    We're talking about revolvers.

    LoL! :p

    Hmmm ... unless you buy Smurf's snub, you might need to buy new. Seems like the local folks are keeping their .357's as I haven't many up for sale in VA.

    3 Inch Barrel or less

    Does that include semi-auto barrels? If not, I might not show up. I might just snub your shoot that week.

    We have come to an agreement, further searches in this quarter are not needed at this moment. Thanks for keeping your eyes open.

    sure, you can bring a bottom feeder with a 3" or less barrel and it would qualify for the generous 'snub' definition ...

    Of course, the main draw of the snub is still having either big bore :D , or magnum :D ... or both :D :D power in a small, concealable and reliable package. Some bottom feeders tend to have :uhoh: issues... in smaller iterations...
