My masculinity is not so delicate that it would be wounded by carrying a LadySmith.  ::)

I'm just not a wheelie gun dude. But if I were, it'd likely be a Chiappa Rhino...

When you're over 65......... who cares

I was standing at the bar at the Legion post one night minding my own business
when this FAT ugly chick came up behind me, grabbed my behind and said,
"You're kinda cute. You gotta phone number?
I said, "Yeah, you gotta pen?"
She said, "Yeah, I got a pen"
I said, "You better get back in it before the farmer misses you."
Cost me 6 stitches...but,
When you're over 65............who cares?


I went to the drug store and told the clerk ...
"Give me 3 packets of condoms, please"
Lady Clerk: "Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?";
I said "Nah... She's purty good lookin'..."
When you're over 65...........who cares?


I was talking to a young woman at the Legion last night.
She said, "If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and
got your hair cut, you'd look all right.";
I said, "If I did that, I'd be talking to your friends over there instead of you.";
Cost me a fat lip, but...
When you're over 65...........who cares?


I was telling a woman in the Club about my ability to guess
what day a woman was born just by feeling her breasts.
"Really" she said, "Go on then.. try."
After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said,
"Come on, what day was I born?"
I said, "Yesterday."
Cost me a kick in the groin, but...
When you're over 65..............who cares?


I got caught taking a pee in the swimming pool today.
The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in.
Meh, when you're over 65.............who cares?


I went to our Legion last night and saw a
BIG woman dancing on a table.
I said, "Good legs."
The girl giggled and said, "Do you really think so?"
I said, "Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now."
When you're over 65.............who cares!

It would follow that you should go out and buy yourself a nice, vintage J-frame from the 80s or earlier. One that has the firing pin on the hammer and that does not have the word 'Lady' in the model designation.  Put whichever grips you prefer on it, and leave the Missus' girly gun tell fluff alone.  :cool

I would need to put new grips on my wife's Lady Smith to be able to use it with any accuracy (the grip is just so fluffing *small*).

I have been informed that I am banned from doing so, as they fit her just fine.

So... this happened!

Easily the most amazing, incredible thing I've ever done in my entire life!  They let me do everything except work the brakes.  I ran her about a mile up the track, stopped her, ran her a mile back, then out & back again.  Very hot (must've sweated off about five pounds in a half hour!) and extremely loud (I stupidly chose not to wear hearing protection, darn near blew my eardrums out when I blew the whistle!), and surprisingly hard work: the throttle is biased closed and it takes a lot of effort to open.  No pics from inside the cab per the railroad's rules, but the wife of the guy riding in the jumpseat took those pictures of me (very nice couple!), and some high-quality "portraits" of me in the cab should be forthcoming courtesy of the railroad within a few days.

I carry an SP101.   It's kind of a brick, but that means it's more comfortable to shoot than the super light ones.    .357s are still a little snappy, but not too bad.

Yup.  To my way of thinking the best practice ammo is .38 Special 148 grain target wadcutters traveling at about 800 fps.  Doesn't beat up the gun - doesn't beat up the shooter - and makes nice, neat holes in the paper.   :cool   

Lighter weight means easier to carry.  Period.  Easier to shoot is not in the repertoire of small, light weight pocket guns.  My own light weight gun is getting to be a pain after a box of twenty.  After a box of fifty I'm looking for a band-aid and an aspirin.  That said, it rides with me frequently and I have the utmost confidence in the rowdy little bastage should the need arise.   :thumbup1

The aforementioned S&W K frame is was the all steel version with a 2" barrel and a round butt configuration.  A Tyler's T-Grip adapter was the sole aftermarket accessory and it was fed from speed loaders.  I'm calling that one probably the finest snub nosed revolver any of us will commonly encounter.  The Colts, particularly the Cobra and the Detective Special are very nice as well but seldom seen on the used market.  I think an all steel revolver that size really needs a proper holster as even with a bobbed hammer or a hammer shroud they are not really pocket friendly. 

As for newly manufactured modern guns your Ruger LCR is a standout as is the Ruger SP 101 series.  Kimber has recently released a couple of nice models as well but I have not fired any of them as of this writing.
