If it's not an ankle gun than the 3 inch is the clear winner

Yup, one of my favorite CCW choices below hides in the protective shadow of one my favorite Open Carry 5-shots—when hammer snagging ain’t a concern.

This shrouded hammer model is a stainless steel frame, which adds weight for Carry, but helps with recoil.
Wow Rack. One is a CCW, the other qualifies as artillery!!!

Does the top one come with a couple Sherpas?

No, but itís probably the only revolver you will ever see that comes with a safety...

I hate to generally recommend things when folks have specific parameters. But, if you can come up in the budget a little bit, check this out.

That's what I was thinking. Also leaning towards DAO. Thoughts?

Assuming that's used, I can get the new SP101 for $580. Leaning that way if i up the budget.

Neat.

Don't forget, it takes two hands to handle a whopper.

If you are satisfied with .38 Special +P, then this 3-inch barrel S&W Model 64 can be had for $400 at United Gun Store in Rockville, but with a pick up not until the third week of December.


If I didn’t already own 2 revolvers with this somewhat rare 3-inch barrel, then I would have grabbed it today.

R&R has shown it to me a couple times, its a monster of a firearm, definitely not for the timid.

If trigger pull is no issue (good hand strength), in a purely personal defense gun, then I'd agree DAO is the way to go.

Not bad, and that gun should last a life-time.

It will make it less fun at the range. The SA trigger pull is significantly lighter and easier to targeted shoot.

I didn't even think about it but Jeff brings up a GREAT point on the 64 above. It's a tank and they are kinda cheap now since the market was/is kinda flooded with prisons and security companies dumping them for glock deals. Jeff is right about that barrel size being more rare but I wouldn't consider it collectible just yet. The 64/65 never gave me a boner but that's not to say they aren't fine working guns.


If we are changing the parameters please also don't discount the old Colt police positives. They are easily in your OP price range, and smaller in grip size which depending on your wife could be a huge positive.
