Yep, and he's prolly still got that 19 too. I like them very well myself. This is one I showed here a few weeks ago. I had a friend call me with it for sale, and I liked it enough to buy it. I carried it a day or two, but the humidity has roared back into town and I won't wear a blued gun when I know I'm going to sweat on it.

How can anyone not like them?

If we took a poll on 19 and Glock, how many bad guys members shot during the week, Iím sure it would be a tie. Personally Iíd take the 19 of the two.

Somehow I sort of doubt it.

That 19 snub is very concealable in an owb holster covered by a vest or short jacket. Shoot it single action at a 100 yard target and then try the same thing with a Glock 19. That S&W will draw quick from concealment and fire a fight stopping cartridge where you are looking. You can load iit with 38 wadcutters for plinking. You can practice with it while the auto guys are practicing malfunction drills. Autos just encourage spray and pray. A good revolver encourages marksmanship. You can change the grips to whatever fits your hand. I like it the way it is. Speed loaders are cheaper than magazines and much more durable. Plus, chicks get turned on by cartridges in loops. Put Winchester Silvertips in loops and they will think you are the Lone Ranger. HIYO SILVER, AWAY.

I think Mr. GatorFramer has been sent to the Big Gator Farm to be fitted for ball and chain.

I have a model 19 snubby . I have a belt holster and a shoulder holster rig for it . I used to have 2 snubbies , the 19 and a 66 . One day I laid them on the table in front of my sister and said " pick one " . She chose the 66. I really wanted the 19 so it worked out for both of us . It is very very accurate and a keeper for sure . I have never carried a semi auto for protection . Just give me my 19 and a couple of speedloaders . regards Paul

I have nine M19's two are snubs and I have two M66 snubs. I was digging in my safe here in Vancouver and found M19 number ten, a six-inch. I forgot I had bought this one the last time I was in town. I must be the morons king!

Sounds to me like you need to trade it for a like model 66 to fare better in that SC humidity. Being from Alabama, I know this - and yet I prefer blued steel to stainless from the aesthetic standpoint. Some feel the same about SS however.

But I've had guns like that too- thought I really wanted them but after I got them, I couldn't quite make them work for me, and so traded them down the road. That's what makes us trade (guns, trucks, horses...)
