Dtrain you were close. Copy the link with "img" at the beginning and paste it. That will get you the visible picture.
You can always tell when a man has lost his soul to flying. The poor [fool] is hopelessly committed to stopping whatever he is doing long enough to look up and make sure the aircraft purring overhead continues on course and does not suddenly fall out of the sky. It is also his bound duty to watch every aircraft within view take off and land.
Thanks for the Help..I am not sure if the Bobbed Hammer is Factory..No Machine or Tooling marks and I have never had a Misfire..I have had this Gun well over 16 years now..I would trust my Life or those I care for to either of these Guns...Bieng an Aluminum Frame I have refrained from shooting any Plus P's through the 12.
I could not help myelf,but I decided to include a picture of what I consider the Snubbie of Harley Davidsons..My 883 Sportster
I scarfed up an old Charter Undercover at a pawn shop a couple of years ago. It has the Bridgeport address which, according to some sources, indicates 1960’s production. I count this as a plus. My patrol guys are always looking for a cheap backup gun and I figured it might work for one of them But it started developing misfires with CCI primers; admittedly the hardest primers out there. I checked the firing pin protrusion and got a shade over 0.040” which is well under industry standard. So I called Charter, explained the problem and asked to purchase some replacement parts. They eventually sent me a new mainspring assembly, extra-length firing pin and spring and they didn’t charge me a dime for any of it. This breathed new life into a decent little 38 snub. It shot two to three inches left at 25 yards, but the front sight was plenty fat enough to shave 0.030" off the right side and that seemed to correct it. Now I know there are better snubs out there but with it shooting like this at 25 paces- I can't seem to make myself get rid of it.
Then there's this old H&R 929, damn near given to me by an old friend.
This little 929 shot just a tad low/left so I took a couple of file strokes off the front sight and coaxed it the direction it needed to go with my little sight hammer. I checked the adjustments on a 50 foot bullseye at 25 yards with my wrists rested on a toolbox. I caught myself holding six o'clock for some shots and into the bull for others, so the vertical dispersion is my bad. You might not hit every rabbit or squirrel you shot at this distance, but you'd get enough of them to keep from going hungry. I am really liking this little 9-shooter.
I only have one snubnose revolver, a S&W 37-2 with factory bobbed hammer and forged guts. I'd like to get a k-frame 38 at some point (a 2" 38 was what made me fall in love with revolvers), but I keep having other priorities.
Old pic (grips and holster have changed), but the gun is the same one I've been carrying for 7 years:
Years ago I was at the range on one of those days when I just couldn't miss. Just for fun, I decided to see what an SP-101 would do at 100 yds. There was a paper plate on the hundred yard berm. I'm not sure how many times I hit it, but I was throwing dirt all around it. A young Army serviceman came over to see what I was shooting. He said that he thought snubnose guns were only good at ten to fifteen feet!! After letting him shoot it, he said that would be the next one on his list.
