I only have one 15 snubby, but it's really nice - so nice that I bought a set of "No Bark" elk horn stags fron Pat Grashorn to dress it up.

My Model 15 is a four-inch, but here's my snubbie 19-2.

I'm a fan of K-frame revolvers and intend no criticism. These big snub-nose guns are generally easy to shoot well because they are heavy. As a carry gun, they are quite bulky and that bulk is in the frame and cylinder, not the barrel. For daily carry, there is far less difference than many think between a 2" and a 4" K-frame.

I better join the party as I too am a big fan of the Md 15 snubs. Here's mine. A Md 15-4. I love the looks and how it shoots.

Never understood the purpose for a 2", square butt revolver with target sights. Hideout? Need fixed sights and round butt. Holster wear? A 4" makes more sense. I have looted at 2" M15s at shows and agreed they are sorta cool, but for the life of me I couldn't think of a purpose it would fulfill.

Well, if Joe Friday didn't have a purpose for his, then I guess you have a good point. At any rate, I really like mine, but I don't carry it. It's just COOOOOL!

Like logic means something to a gun fan, right?

Perhaps you have never owned one. A 2" Model 15 shoots about as well as a 4", and is slightly less risky when carrying on a belt. Depending on pants, it IS possible
to pocket carry a 2" 15 with Rogers/Safariland grips, at least with the hammer bobbed. I, too, would prefer a round butt, but it does seem to work perfectly well with
the Rogers grips. In my hands, it shoots more accurately and much faster than a Model 10. I have EDC'd my 2" 15 for many years, with "FBI loads." That's the purpose
it fulfills for me.

Be it right or wrong, they just look cool! I searched for 1, a few years on & off. Never happened. Finally got this 10-5 in March. Factory R.B. stocks were pretty rough. Just added these Pachmayr Renegrades. Not looking for that elusive 15 snub any more! ( never say never) Bob

Totally understand what you say about waiting. I was waiting for a high condition Md 15 with 4 inch barrel in either nickel or blue. And when one finally showed up in the condition I wanted ...it had a 2 inch barrel! I quickly forgot about the 4 inch barrel and paid the man and took it home. Boy am I ever glad I did.

I have also been waiting and waiting for a nice Md 64 with 3 inch barrel. Well, it finally showed up but at a price I am unwilling to pay, especially with aftermarket rubber. I'm a patient man, I'll keep waiting.
