My model 36 was once fumbled to a tile floor, breaking the hammer spur. Smith got me a shiny new hammer pretty quickly, but the original has taunted me from the corner of my parts drawer ever since.

We are moving to a new place and it seemed pretty now or never to bob the old hammer before packing my tools away. Now to get out to the range and make sure it still has enough oomph to pop primers with whatever the hell weight Wolff hammer spring I put in.

And the bands are from a lobster, so this needs posting:

I'm still trying to decide on a holster for this:



drat my 642 for being so concealable, otherwise I may have actually bought a holster for the 3" gun! If I were to make it a carry gun I'd have to swap out for some Hogue bantams or something slightly smaller. .357s and solid wood don't really go hand in hand and that model 13 is a working gun.

How it was:



And the 64-twosies for fun:



Now it has bantams on it as well, I like them much more than the factory grips, and they actually work with speedloaders!

You should get a NAA cap and ball mini revolver and give it to me when you tire of cleaning black powder

Galco Combat Master is nice, though I dunno if they make a 3" version.

That 3" S&W is really sweet. If I came across one, I'd seriously have to consider using it instead of my G17.

It's an amazing shooter with a great trigger. I think I paid $450 for it about 6 months ago, which I consider to be a drat fine deal.

Can't really say with any authority as I don't carry it

From bumming around at the range and rolling around in pyjamas, it works fine for a quick tuck and go. I wouldn't use it full time in lieu of a holster and it does get in the way of the High Noon IWB I have, so holster selection would be fun. But for cosplay of the sort of carry guns I grew up around, it is great. Honestly, if I did still carry it - and I am often tempted - I would keep the setup as is and just shop around or make my own IWB holster. The hammer spur broke years ago when I got wiped out by a dog with it tucked in pyjamas checking a smashy noise at ~0300, so quick tuck convenience/added stability is a factor for me.

Oh, the seam between the grip panels can be a bit much when shooting/dry firing a bunch and the bands make it as comfy as anything else.

E:



E2: Dug out the Nemesis I used when I still carried it and the grip works fine with the holster. Makes it a bit printier in the pocket, but a steel J-frame is going to show to some extent no matter what.

Finally had a chance to get the 36 to the range and it still set off primers fine and dandy.

And a guy invited by the couple I took had a Hipoint carbine in 45 ACP with folding vertical foregrip and a god damned Eotech. The little fucker was so fun to pop clays at fifty yards. Ugly as anything but unadulterated fun. He also had an EAA wheeliegat in 45 LC he was pimping out to all takers and SA revolvers never get old

Colt 1917 with a Fitz treatment. Prepare your wallet and get ready for collectors to lynch you when your smith chops the barrel on a classic.

Totally worth it.
