Default model 60 lady smith

My question is this. There is a gunstore with a model 60 lady smith 357 mag 5 shot snub nose that i really like . It has everything I am looking for in a backup gun . But it is a lady smith would that keep you from buying it for yourself ? I am a six foot three 295 pound retired army man . but i really like this gun. your thoughts

Is it pink?

It's a great revolver, who cares if it says Batman...

If it really bothers you, you can always have it bead blasted which is a cool finish anyway.

You can also just buy a Model 60 and get the same gun without the Lady Smith name on it.

The name wouldn't stop me if I liked it. Just tell everyone you like to take your lady with you.

BTW, stop by the introductions forum if you don't mind. It's a meet and greet section.

I just looked at Glasshartt's Lady Smith 60-3 and it's a 38 special only. I have on occasion, mostly without Glasshartt's knowledge, carried her 60 when I wanted something really small. Great weapon and shoots like a dream. She has had this gun since probable 1989 or 90 and bought it at Ace Hardware . This woman can fall into a barrel of sh*t and come up with a diamond.

Those are great revolvers. I'd buy it. Who knows, maybe your attackers might laugh at you and leave you alone, if not shoot the bastards.

Buy it!! Who gives a damn what anyone else would think but you. If it feels good in your hand and you are comfortable with it, then carry on soldier.

I don't think you would have a problem giving someone an attitude adjustment, if you really needed too.

Most of the "Ladysmith" series of handguns have more refined (tuned) triggers. They are easier to shoot well than the standard guns of the same design. The Ladysmiths were popular with officers for back up because the are pretty sweet right out of the box.

The name wouldn't bother me if I really liked/wanted the gun. Go for it. It don't sound like you'll be insecure about the name.

Do what makes you happy. It doesn't matter as long as you are comfortable with the piece. If you aren't then that is one thing, but seriously, are you doubting your OWN manhood? I doubt it...

I'm with the general concensus here... If you like it, buy it. Regardless of the name or even if it is pink and has Hello Kitty on it. If it fits your hand, is easy to carry and shoots straight, purchase it.
