That's right. The first J frame in .38 special. S&W introduced the Model 36 at the International Association of Chief’s of Police convention(1950 I think). They were allowed to vote on the name for the new model. Of course they chose "Chief's Special".
I had my Model 10 at the range today. That K frame is much more forgiving to shoot than the J frame.
My apologies to posters whose posts I should have "liked". I got worn out.
I love a tang sight.
Recently we bought our daughter a Henry .22 at a gun show. The wife decided she might like one too so when we were "down the hill", we stopped at a very large gun store that always have several models of Henrys on the wall to look at and handle. She wanted to not get the same one we got our daughter so wanted to kinda see the options. Lucky day. They had a Golden Boy on the wall that had unbelievable wood on it. Literally they had Italian shotguns on the wall for $4-$5K that didn't have the wood that this $500 .22 did. So not being dumb, we bought it for Nichole, my wife.
Nichole had surgery recently and only had one chance to fire it prior. She's been recovering fine and a few days ago she was feeling good so we went out to our range and also our daughter went with us to shoot hers for the first time.
They both loved em.
Some real fine tooth on that Peacemaker, Wayne!
@Horsewright I hope Nicole recovers quickly. Great Henry, I have never owned one, and I think that should change.
@Corn Fed When it comes to knives or guns, two is better than one.
@Prester John I look forward to seeing your Model 60. Post it up.
Buck, S&W, and Winchester. American classics.
Usually rides in my hunting pack loaded with 38 special snake shot. Needed a good cleaning. (This was pre cleaning.)
Inspecting for rust and putting a fresh coat of oil on some of my traditional knives today. Also, the model 10-5 is still out on the kitchen table because I cannot stop fondling it. Time for another knife/revolver picture.

Cool! An older Bodyguard. It looks a little strange, but I like the shrouded hammer and the option of cocking to shoot single action.
@Prester John I don' think that is strange, at all. It is nice to use single action and double, when you are target shooting.
I agree. I have a Model 60 and a Model 642 (Chief's Special and Centennial). I like the concealed hammer for pocket carry, but I also like being able to cock the exposed hammer. The Bodyguard is the best compromise. It just looks kind of funny to me, but I might get one some day. I love S&W, but I wouldn't buy one with the Clinton lock.
I like this shot. Another advantage of those Buckaroo pouches for carrying your traditional folder. Doesn't get in the way of a sidearm (Kimber here) and you can still access your knife if needed. Tyler, my friend, is also carrying a fixed blade crossdraw on the other side. Made his belt too, as well as the holster with his brand.
Aw heck made his reins and spur straps too come to think of it.
Nice Setup !!
That’s the only way I normally carry except IWB for concealment purposes and so comfortable !
Nice leather Sir
Lefty here also
