S&W 38 special,
October 27, 2013
Just got mine about 2 weeks ago and finally went to the range. I've come to the conclusion that it's the perfect home defense weapon, but not that great of a range gun/sport. Given the light weight it kicks pretty good. As a result, it makes it kind of tough to be consistent with targets. As for home, it'll stop anyone in their tracks!!
Excellent, dependable personal protection,

This versatile compact little revolver may be unattractive - perhaps even ugly - but it will do the job it's intended to do.
The snagless hammer, lightweight, compact design, and +P rating, make this .38 caliber the ideal weapon for personal defense.
Has become my main carry gun.,

Great little gun, lightweight and easy to conceal. I only made two improvements. I painted the front sight white, as it tended to disappear before my tired old eyes. The stock grip had no place for my pinky, and made it virtually impossible to use a speed loader. This was easily solved with an aftermarket grip.

Fell in love with this ugly little revolver,

When I bought this odd little revolver, I was thinking function over looks - the utility of a non-snag hammer shroud while retaining the ability to cock it for single-action shooting. However, I have learn that there is beauty in it's versatility - good in pocket, paddle and ankle holsters, better SA/DA accuracy than I could have hoped for, great pointability and 5-shots of .38Special+P well concealed.
