    I went the opposite route....Carried a J-frame for a long time as my off-duty gun but it just seemed "barely adequate" what with all the little nasties around here packing more firepower.
    So I went with a Glock 27.

    I've had a number of snubbies over the years, from the Colt Detective Special, the Smith J-Frame, a Colt "Trooper"in .357... I've fired a couple of airweights of various designs and they are quite nasty to shoot unless you put bigger grips on them.

    I went with the 27 because the department gun is a .40...Currently a Sig P229. However, were I interested in ultimate carrying ease I'd likely go with one of the multitude of small 9mm autos.

    Got to love the early 36s, I still have one and regret selling another. I don't have one complete with the blue box, very nice.

    Not a snub but I seriously have my eye on one of these, for a while not. Gp100 match champion

    So I went to the gun store and looked at a lcr, sp101, gp100, and a model 60. Out of them all I I fell in love with model 60.

    S&W model 60 is very respectable. The adjustable sights are probably not the best for carry but it will serve.

    @converge. Those match champion gp-100's are very nice looking. I've been eyeing them myself. More geared towards range shooting than carry but very nice all the same. Here is some gp-100 eye candy.

    I've had a bunch of little snub nose revolvers and then I bought a Ruger .357 LCR. It has been my carry pistol for around 4 years give or take and I absolutely love it. It has the best factory trigger of any revolver I've ever owned and is very reasonably priced. Mine feels like a S&W that has had a trigger job done on it. Best thing you could do if you have the option is go to a range that lets you rent different guns. I haven't had a friend yet that doesn't like the trigger on my LCR though. The second picture is with the Ruger holster that is made by Mitch Rosen and is easily the best OWB holster I've ever owned. Cheaper than buying directly from Mitch Rosen as well.
