Initially, I thought Bob shot wadcutters in his little snubby, but when I peeked over at Mr. Itajones’ Everyday Carry page, it turns out they are the respectably performing (out of a snubby) Federal HST .38 Spl +p loads. And he carries another cylinder full of more conventional Speer Gold Dot hollow points to facilitate faster and more positive reloads using his HKS speedloader.
The gun stands as a classic among small-frame wheel guns. And I wrote about the utility of these classic pieces for deep cover recently. Don’t discount a small-frame, snub-nosed revolver for self-defense, especially as a civilian. They perform well in a host of scenarios and in competent hands, can put shots on target well outside of room-length distances.
Love that ensemble, Mr. Itajones. All you need is a light to illuminate dark places where bad guys hang out.
