Moresnubbies than ever?

Just iewhenyougetanother vehicle, ya see em everywhere... Well the last couple years, all I've seen are Snubbies! Perhapsitsthat they make up into aperfectcarry gun?
The bullet weights are either Heavy for penetration or light for low recoil/explosive preformance while stillretainigweight for penetration
All a way better caliber cheaters tics than the 380. I do admit 380 pistols hinder and carry way better!
We'll se, just Hkow the old favorite .38 Snubbie retains it's reputation?
Please,please don't abuse older steel framedSnubbies by shooting Plus P loads through them!!!

I’ll attempt to decipher by stating that no .380 looks like a snub...even fewer perform like one.

I don't know if it's because of some high-tech phone spelling program or what, but I'm guessing "cheaters tics" was supposed to be characteristics.

Cheaters tics sounds like something you'd catch in the No-Tell Mo-Tell.

Just re-read the OP, and now I'm wondering if the L is really supposed to be an L.

Thats friggin' funny, I don't care who you are.

I guess we have sorta moved off the OPs question. If it was a question. Was it a question? I never figgered it out.

I like my snubbies too. I have 6 of them I believe. If you aren't sure if you want a snubby or not pick up a copy of this book. If this doesn't make you want a snubbed nose shooter I don't know what will. And if you have a snub you will look at it in a new light.

https://www.amazon.com/Snubby-Revolv.../dp/1581605714

I got my copy from Evan Marshall. He is a nice guy to talk to on the phone.

I like my snubs. I also would advise please proof read your post if posting using a phone, or tablet. I know the darn letters are so small, and the spacebar can be hard to hit without missing and hitting the zxcvbnm keys instead.

I've a Colt Detective and a SW Airweight. Can't get used to the cylinder latch on the Colt. I don't miss the extra round either. The SW carries much better.

Oh my..... allow me to try to translate.

I believe that the OP was attempting to point out that he has noticed are large amount of people carrying snub nose revolvers particularly as they enter and exit their cars?

They offer lots of cartridge choices.

They have better ballistics than the easier to conceal .380s...

Don't abuse your steel framed snubs ( or any gun for that matter.)

I believe the OP is to be used in conjunction with morning coffee to wake up your brain prior to heading off to work. Hopefully doing so won't make you late.
