    In the beginning: A snub nose was a 3 inch barrel. . As you can see from the two I posted above. For a 38 the barrel length has nothing to do with witch 38 rounds it fires..
    Ruger LCR is the shortest barrel I know of is just shy 1.9 inches
    For the record this is how the barrel is measured This S&W come in the same length as an LCR At lest with 1000 of an inch. of course that thing is not super accurate.

    I am not pushing this firearm. In fact I would say it is not the best option for many. It is light unloaded 14.4 OZ. It is small but deceiving not a lot different than a 7+1 LC9S type semiauto. It takes range time to shoot well.
    it is rated for 38 +P if you wish to use them. The factory laser works well and has a long battery life. It is double action only. It is easy and fast to reload.
    This thread brought up a lot of questions about 38 revolvers . All this is about is using one to clear up a few things about them.

    Yes, you need a concealed carry holster for it. Then you need reloading gear. Also, a hammerless revolver would snag less while trying to pull it out if you plan to carry it in your pocket.

    The bottom line was he was using a leather holster instead of a hard kydex and the leather tripped the trigger as he pushed the pistol in.
    The entrance and exit wounds were both pretty "clean" he must have been using hardball.
    I tend to disbelieve folks who say "the holster did it" when reporting NDs while reholstering. This is an almost impossible thing to happen, even with Glocks ( I have owned Glocks for many years, and never had this happen, and I only have leather holsters). It is possible to get a piece of clothing in a position to pull the trigger of a Glock while holstering, but it still comes back to operator error. Most NDs come from people having a finger on the trigger, whether or not they will admit it or "remember" it happening that way. I have had one ND in my life that I can recall, and it was 100% my fault, and was with a 1911 of all things.

    Yeah, that guy fully admitted it was his fault. He was playing around and got sloppy. I loved that he called his parents immediately.

    1- the calibre has got good stopping power.

    2- the gun is small enough to be easily concealed/carried.

    3- I hear volvers never jam.


    I'd try to get a 6-shooter preferably, otherwise a 5-shooter will do.
    Have I overlooked anything?

    It's what I've generally got in my pocket when I leave the house. At the range and duration of most gunfights it should be enough. 9mm fanboys may disagree. Sometimes, when the mood strikes, I will carry a .45 ACP double stack XDS. I agree with you however, your assertions are, in my opinion correct. Also, if the need or opportunity arises, revolvers do not liter the ground with empties.

    You've got that right.
    That video screams "I'm gay as hell".
    I have no idea who that guy is, and I'm glad about that.

    The bobbed or concealed hammer on a revolver is not a form of a safety it's main purpose is to reduce likely hood of hammer getting caught while drawing it. A conceal hammer weapon You do not see it covered by design. A bobbed hammer is trimmed off. There is a difference in the two.
