Man talk about a hard question to answer. I like the old Colt Detective Specials, and the "J" frame Smith's. If I had to choose one it would be one of my Smith "J" frames.

The more I think about this I can't truthfully answer this one.There's to many that fit the ticket.LOL.

Default Fav 38 Snub Nose?

Hello all

RON L here = SERESURPLUS


Over the years, I have had a lot of really good ones! I did try and like the S & W J Frame series in a Model 36, 37, 38, as well the 6 Shot Offering from Colt in the Way of the Detectives special (New Model with shroud), as well as "Agent", a simular snub nose, 6 shot, but in alloy, those were good to! I did Try a few Charter Arms "Undercover and Undercoverette" Snub Revolvers in 38 SPCL as wll as 32, but they always left me thinbking that they were nit gonna hold up? I never Realy had any Big issues with them, But they felt cheap and too light to hold up over seriuos use, so I dumped them! Snub 38's soon fell out of favor in my buys soi I stopped looking at them, later, I bought a Taurus Model 85 in Blue and later one for my Wife In Stainless, BOTH WERE EXCELLENT Copies of the J Frame Smith and Had I not been laid off and wife wwas Verry Ill, I might still have those two? I didn't buy or own a 2" or any 38 Revolver till I recently (Last Year or so), saw an Armscorp Model 200 4" revolver! I got it at a time when $ were hard, but it was well under $200.00 with tax out the door! I triede and use it and liked it, but it was a little large for the sort of carry that I was used to? I saw later that they offered a snub nose Model the Model 206 in a 2" and 38 SPCL and as the 200 Model was, all steel? I have owned this Little Copy of the Colt Detecive Special for near ayear now and I have to say, it's pretty darn good! It's not as smooth as my Colts or Smiths were, but it feel god in the hand,ballences well, and shooting is what you'd expect from a much more expensive revolver, it shoots well, and for a 2" is typical of the groups that I expect at 20 yards or less! This one is a KEEPER! For anyone Looking, a 38 Snub is still a Good Pick, simple and reliable, it will do it's job, if you do yours? Close in short range self-defence as the revolver is expected, will do that job well!

Well, am partial to an older Kolb Baby Hammerless .22- double action only, about 4 inches from stem to stern (Grin- that is a REAL snubbie!) but for serious social purposes, a Mdl 36 or 37.

I have a Ruger SP 101 and like it fine, wish it had adjustable sights. I'd almost as rather carry my Security Six.

I have an SP101 revolver, had it for a number of years I mainly used it to carry descretly when train (laying tracks etc., I bleedin' hate snakes....). I have it over here now with me but I have to say, as reliable as it is, and as well as it shoots it hasn't adhered itself to me. Maybe the weight, I don't know personal I guess.

The boys have arranged for a .38 Taurus 85 Protector (similar to the S&W M649) to try when I'm next out......
