    I like those too! Who made them? All I've seen are the Barami and Don Collins made ones.

    De Santis I think it was. I bought them at Midwayusa.com Not terribly expensive, and while not squishy like the original rubber grips they have a good feel to them.

    That and 22 lr recoil is not all THAT bad! (LOL)

    Snubbies are too useful to switch to something else. I'm fine with the humpback models.

    Go on Gunbroker and find a well-cared-for, used one for around 550-700 dollars!

    I guess "snubbies" come, proportionately, in different sizes.

    My "always" (always on me) .38 Special snubbie, a S&W Model 37 Airweight (aluminum frame) J-frame from 1971. I've saved the original, mint factory stocks and use elk stags from Patrick Grashorn + a Tyler T grip . . .

    [​IMG]

    Here's a S&W Model 36 "flat latch/diamond stocks" from 1964 (a steel-framed J-frame) and a Colt Agent (aluminum frame snubbie) from 1961. Yeah, I like the older ones!
    [​IMG]

    Moving up in size and power, here's a Model 19-5 (K-frame) w/ 2 1/2" barrel in .357 Magnum from around 1982 . . . quite a gun!
    [​IMG]

    And my umm . . . favorite "snubbie" a BIG ("N" frame) S&W Model 25-2 .45ACP target revolver, with its 6 1/2 barrel chopped to 3 1/4." PROPORTIONATELY it is "kind of" a snubbie. It is a tackdriver too! My favorite handgun of all time!!!

    Yep, there's something about a bad guy staring at the huge holes of the cylinder and barrel of a short barreled, large-frame .45ACP revolver to help him decide it just ain't worth it!!!

    I just sold one of the 3 1/16 version. Good gun. Just prefer my Speed Six (2 3/4) better! :) And the Speed really isn't that much larger for carry.

    I too prefer to carry snub nose guns. Although they do take practice and good technique to master. Once you learn to shoot shorties well, all longer barrel guns are gravy! They certainly aren't range guns but can be shot well by me out to 20 yards or so.

    I do like the idea of a dedicated snub sub forum and would definitely spend time in one. Some of you own very nice shorties and have raised the bar for the rest of us. I really do appreciate the pictures that were posted, only a persons imagination limits what can be done to these ventilators.

    I have been carrying my Colt Commando Special off and on for the last few months but lately it has taken over as my primary carry more often then not. I really like how light it is compared to my other carry options and I literally forget its there. If it wasn't for the speedstrip of 6 rounds in my pocket I would forget I even had it on me. Question, how do you all carry spare rounds? I tried speedloaders but they felt heavy in my pocket so I went to speedstrips but am trying to find a better way to carry them.
