    That's tragic. I'm guessing far enough that you'll end up sending it back to Smith for a replacement.

    It's definitely sad compared to many of the collections here, but as a dude just setting off on a revolver journey, I actually have pride in my no-lock 638. haha

    I AIWB, and they work great for that. I can't see them working with pocket carry, due to length and being rubber, but I've yet to try. I don't usually have the...

    Well, at least for now, I've scratched my itch and filled the role with a 4" Security Six from 1978. Not really what I was after, but it'll work just fine for most of what I want it to do, and I got...

    I'll certainly give it a whirl to the concept, if you're not using it. You still have my address, or do you need me to shoot it over again?

    I've considered the GP, but figured it's just a little too big (and heavy) if I ever felt like concealing. It's not the main purpose, but it's still a role I think I can fill with something smaller....

    General Purpose Revolvers

    So for the last week I've been falling, at terminal velocity, down the revolver rabbit hole. After the DB & Chris P&S Snubbies episode, I started to AIWB a 638 I have. I did it all week, and it's...

    Have you checked for markings under the stocks on both sides? Dave Berryhill was known to work on a springer or two, but I can't say I've ever seen or heard of him marking extractors with a "B".
