    Agree with the alloy frames that will be pocket carried. I have the stock Taurus boot grip on my 85SSUL. But, on the SP101, a Hogue conceals VERY well, round butt profile. You won't be carrying a SP101 in a pocket unless you're Hulk Hogan, anyway. The thing weighs 27 ounces unloaded.

    I have a 3" Taurus 66 for belt/iwb/owb/fanny pack carry. It's over 30 ounces and the Hogue on it isn't as small for CCW, but it carries 6 and I much prefer a 3" barrel in a .357 magnum. The gun is an amazing shooter, too, very accurate and easy to shoot heavy loads from. The SP101 is a little rough with hot loads, but quite manageable. I may get another one, this time with a 3" tube. :D

    TennJed - added/edited nomenclature to the pic - should have done that in the first place.

    Not at all suprised to see so many really nice revolvers from other members. I start giggling half way thru some of these threads when members show their good stuff.
    I just wish I'd started my "little" hobby 40 years ago.

    I have a S&W 60-2 and it's a perfect pocket carry for a backup.

    788Ham,

    That one traveled a long ways over the years. From Los Angeles, California in 1934 to a small town gunshop in Maine. I'd love to know the story of why it ended up here. I picture it in some travelers pocket on a train travelling across country.

    My snubbie collection is nowhere near the awesomeness of some of the previous, but here are some of mine:

    Wow. My picture turned out more horrific than I thought. I promise not to post any more pictures from my cell phone. Horrific.

    Bought a set of the Pro Comp Grips, as seen on the M60, for my M&P340. Very nice grips. Not as concealable, but gives ya a good handful of grip. Put my silver/black Altamont boot grips on when I want concealability. Gotta love all them snubbies!!!

    Thanks for fixing the angle for me M-Cameron. I couldn't get it to rotate.

    Yeah,I know what you mean by wishing there was a separate forum and all, just for the snubs ! A friend of mine sold me a Colt Lawman MK III .357 snub nose.it was a retired Police Oficers Duty revolver.I have to find out what year it was made.The only thing I know so far is that they were made from 1969-83 I'll do the research on it as soon as I get the chance and I put a picture in the thread for sure.The bluing is nice and it shoots good too.I dont have a problem shooting a soda can at 20yds and I think for a snubie...well you be the judge!This was with factory Rem. Ammo.Anyway I just love this revolver and it has found it's permanent home sweet home (ha ha) oh I paid $275 for it which I thought was very good.I'm a happy camper :D :p :D

    That is a S&W model 66.
    One of the finest handguns EVER produced!
    You cannot buy new ones....because they are no longer produced. (unless you can find one for 1200 bucks "NIB")
    I sold mine off (duhh) to purchase some plastic wondernine.....and have regretted it ever since.
    I will have another one someday....a -4 model, my favorite!
