4" L frame S&W.

Or if that's not enough gun for you, then a 4" N frame in 41 magnum.

Both are highly shootable, just a little bulky to cover up, depending on time of the year & attire selection.

Thanks for the photo of that interesting revolver, I've got to say I didn't know that configuration even existed! cool

Very cool piece there sir, thanks for sharing it.

All the best to you all.

If somebody was waiting for me in the parking lot and the fight was on, I'm thinking I'd want a real rear sight--not just a notch, and bit more grip than the typical 2 finger. How much sight radius would you want? I'm talking in terms of fighting back against a determined attacker.

Thanks!


I would think that if he was that close, adequate sights would would not be the problem. There is a reason some call them "belly guns". I carry an S&W M60 and Pachmeyr makes nice set of stocks that allows me to use all the fingers of my hand. I do admit that my main cary piece is a Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP and the M60 is my bug. But sometimes the .45 has to stay at home and the M60 becomes my primary. As the weather here warms up, it becomes quite difficult to hide that .45 when mode of dress is a T-shirt and jeans.

Apart from the adjustable sights, similar to my Ruger Speed Six (my first handgun, purchased new in 1980).

His EDC isn't a revolver. It's a S&W Shield....but's it's still a Smith.

Yes, but I thought his opinions on revolvers would carry more weight than us lightweights.

The Smith&Wesson Model 19 Carry Comp seems like it would fit the bill pretty well. Night sights, 3" barrel and all that.
Alternatively the new King Cobras also look pretty interesting.

I'd like one of those with an Italian sports car to match.

One of the 2.5" or 4" 66's, the 4" M19, or the 4" 686+.

Any one of those would work and I've got El Paso or Galco holsters that will fit all of them.

LOL!
THAT explains how he could see that balloon at 1000 yards to hit it with his revolver.

Yep, I could make do with a snubby 19 or 66, no problem.

Based on a sample of one I tried in a store those King Cobras have a very, very nice double action pull, plus they hold 20% more ammo than the 5 shooters. One of those would be a very viable option but if you go with one of the 4" adjustable sight versions be prepared to spend upwards of $1000. One of those is sitting at $1525 current bid on gunbroker with 9 hours left to go. It looks like Colt recently changed them to use a front night sight and Hogue grips instead of a fiber optic front and wooden grips and apparently the gunbroker market isn't as interested.

You probably won’t find a better one than the 66 you mention. But a 3” Ruger would be nice too

Regurgitation is maximized however. That surpasses the High Point for ugly. I have a stainless S&W mountain gun in .41 magnum that I'd carry if I couldn't carry my Springfield EMP.
