I have a good handful over the years and still have several snub noses. My favorite still is my smith 638 humpback. No snag, can still thumb co ck to shoot it. Hard to beat. If I had a $7-800 budget and did not own a snub, this is still the one I would buy. I highly recommend them or even the 438.
I do not love the bright sword for it's sharpness, nor the arrow for it's swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.
