I just loves me a snubbie.

The big boy is a 1974 Ruger Security Six .357 magnum. The little girl is a 1958 S&W .38 Terrier.

If you loves you a snubbie, let's see what you got ... gender reveal optional.

I like those Security Six grips, I had 'em on 4 inch one years ago. My one negative about the SP / GP models.

Just a plain little Rossi bought new around 1988 for $159.00. My wife managed a hardware store and two guys in a pickup truck followed her after locking up one night. This was pre cell phone days (for blue collar folks) and she was on dark ,empty roads. She wanted her own gun after that, and range time to get used to it. She chose the little Rossi .38spl and got proficient with it. It still resides in her closet loaded with XTP Hornady loads. It's always shot well for her. The little grips are too small for my hands.

I've always been of big fan of snubbie revolvers. I think it's in part because as a kid watching TV and movies you saw them all the time. All the cool detectives carried one and many of the bad guys too. These days I just like the way they carry and all the new high-level .38 ammo for self-defense that's available. And there are so many choices in brands, calibers, grips, materials and finishes, everyone can find one they like.

I had a few others over the years but today these are my favorites. The J-Frames ... a Performance Center 642 Airweight and a 638 Airweight Bodyguard are my EDC / backup guns. And my newest, another Performance Center creation, a Model - 19 Carry Comp. The 19 was an impulse buy that I fell for on the spot and had to have it.

All three are wearing VZ 320 G-10 grips ... a big improvement over the stock grips. They really fit my big mitts much better. I'm a VZ fan ... highly recommended.

I also have a Rossi .38, a Model 88 in ss, that I really like.......damned accurate for a snub nose as well. When I get a picture I'll post it.
