If I'd seen a good Smith Model 40 before I found my fine 640 no-dash I'd have bought it. But I didn't, so the 640 has ridden in a holster in my pocket daily for going on thirteen years. Being unobtrusive is not a problem. I once briefly owned a Ruger GP100, and for a short time a Rossi 87, but all my other revolvers have been blue.
Stainless rifles have never appealed to me, either for appearance or visibility in the woods.
