@Armybrat, can you provide a little caption for each of your revolvers e.g., year, make and model?

I especially am interested in Pics 1 and 4; they're all real interesting though.

Nice, 1stTime. Pretty and heavy duty at the same time. What are your plans for it, if I may ask?
I assume you are referring to the GP100 but either way both will be checked out at the range and possibly put into the EDC rotation. I have limitations due to the location of my employment. After I retire next year, I can carry anything I want. The other day I saw a young man carrying a desert eagle. He was a good size boy. Husky and tall. He had a pancake style holster and apparently, a very good belt, because it rode high and tight with little to no sagging. I was impressed.

I haven't had a snub nose revolver since the 1980's when I started carrying a Colt Commander in .45ACP. Prior to the Commander I carried a 3'' S&W 13-3 round grip frame that I swapped a Colt Detective Special in on. The 13-3 with the factory grips chewed my hand up with magnum ammunition. That was the only gun that caused me to bleed when fired. A set of neoprine grips solved the bleeding problem, but muzzle blast and recoil were still severe and wanting more power than a .38spl I sold the S&W and bought the Commander which I've carried ever since. A snubbie .44spl. would have been the ticket in a revolver though.
