S&W .38 Chief's I have a very nice leather high rider holster that carries very well. Cop friend said 5 rounds is not enough. I say okay, let Billy Badass decide that after a gunfight. It's not how many rds you have, it's how you use them.
I like it.
in his pocket, after the two Glocks on his belt!
weird in my hand but puts the lead in the money ring. I'd like to have it pocket carry but the hammer spur gets snagged even just taking it out to put away, I'd hate that to happen in an emergency.
somebody makes one with an embedded hammer that won't catch on clothing. I've even shot one, but I can't remember who makes it. Anybody?
Click on my pic and you can see mine.. a little Smith airweight.
fine looking piece too.
Great looking stag grips, but yep thinking those got changed for serious shooting..
case one broke. I use Pachmyer rubber grips for target shooting.
Coming up next, a real posker pistol and big business :<)
A much better carry piece than the hiway patrolman anyway due to weight. Sure looks good.. Ever own an N. I never did, but had a couple of the New Service from Colt. One 1917 and one New Service in 357, like the n, just big iron.. Reminds me of the Marty Robbins song..
than weight though. People get their hair in a knot when they see a gun peekin' out from under a shirt, I just don't want cops pestering me. In the times when carrying the little Chief's won't work the "Baby" will have to. It is less lethal than a .22 LR but noisy as hell and can cause an awful sting! :<)
That little guy sounds like a cannon when i fire it. Plus i can stick it in any pocket, and it never shows.. Course it only groups to about a foot at 5 ft out.. ok, i might be exagerating.. maybe only shoots inside 18" from 5 ft out...
Get a load of this bullshit :<))

The J-frame pictured would appear to be an early Model 36, from the diamond grips. I think that the Model 37 (airweight) came out too late to have the diamond grips, though someone should check me to be sure that I'm right on that. As to guns without a spur hammer, S&W made the Model 49 Bodyguard, the Model 38 Airweight Bodyguard, their stainless equivalents, the 649 & 638. These aren't true "hammerless" (actually internal hammer); they have slots in the back of the frame through which a little nub of the hammer protrudes. The guns can be thumb cocked using these nubs, IF you're really careful, so the guns can be shot single action. I have a Model 49 which is my favorite concealed carry gun. I've only ever shot it double action. It wears Crimson Trace Lasergrips (which I love). S&W also made/makes the Centennial models, which have internal hammers (no slot). I believe that the current model is the 642, although there may be others (S&W has such a proliferation of models these days). The original Centennial model had a grip safety, like the old safety hammerless models in .32 & .38 S&W. The Model 42 Centennial was in .38 Special.
I put those wood hogues you can see on mine, and they soak up the recoil of the airweight pretty good. Still has to much recoil to carry +P in it. I did a lot of experimenting, weighing the options on recoil vs follow up sight pictures.. and since hollow points out of a snub are questionable i go with a jacketed 130 gr. that i "think" is my best all around choice.
wad cutters give me a solid snap of a recoil. Your Hogues look like they'd help tame mine gun a little.
They were expensive, and i am frugal.. ok im a cheap shit, anyway i wasn't going to spring for them, then thought this is stupid, if your serious about a carry piece, and i do a lot of speedloader drills cause i am. then get something to get that sight picture asap.. Will tell you they work. I actually can do serious double action with it.
see ya all in the am..
