    There’s a lot to be said for the J-frame pistol. Perhaps as much (almost) for the new Colt Pony wearing King Cobra. They are the right size. I can make a J disappear in places where, believe it or not, a Glock 43 with OEM mag sticks out. Where even a little Sig P938 is too angular, or too heavy...

    Here's a favorite old Model 36 J=frame which came to me as I retired four years hence. Beside it is the modern rendition of the J-frame today. I can't say I favor one over the other (there are two others in the house). The old 36 never sees modern carry ammo, preferring a diet of LSWC or full...

    So I tired of the OEM red insert in the front sight of my S&W J-frame and didn't really like my off-the-shelf replacement options. So .... I gave a local gunsmith carte blanche to make me a sight I could frigging see. He gave me the option of ordering him back to the drawing board if it didn't...

They fell in front of a camera yesterday evening. The Mod 36 needs a front sight job, though as one photo shows...

    For many years, I've lived with Craig Spegel grips - used some others, but preferred Spegel. I've come by a couple of extra wheel guns of late, I'm not bubbling to the top of Mr. Spegel's working list fast enough. What wood grips have you folks developed a preference for on S&W J- and K-frames...

    After 9 months of 4-5 carry outings per week, with twice a month range trips thrown in to perfect the appendix presentation, my Ti framed S&W airweight finish is holding up amazingly well. The gun has consumed approximately 500 rounds of 158 grain SWC at normal 38 Special velocity, along with a...

    How good is it in your mind. What do the sights seem to be regulated to out of the box. Any comments on recoil of +P 38 Special compared to other J-frames? thanks -
