After your 6 rounds are out that is. I wonder why all guns don't have the full shroud? Even on a gun meant for pure plinking, I would think it adds durability in case it was banged around accidentally. But I'm just guessing on the weight cost. Maybe it weighs more than I think to add the full shroud?
    There is very little ejector rod that is exposed, in a 2” snub-gun, so I would think that its vulnerability is rather low. I would rather not swing a revolver in a direction that would endanger the ejector rod, anyway, as the impact could damage the trigger guard.

    Interestingly, I found that the standard S&W grip/stock panels are a comfortable fit, in my hands. It seems that my hands have changed, since 1983/1984, when I last bought a round-but K-Frame with this type of grips. Many fabrics tend to cling to the rubbery types of grips, such as those on my SP101 and GP100 revolvers, and I do plan to carry this K-Snub. Life is good.
    Notably, this “used” 64-2 has tighter lock-up than plenty of the new S&W revolvers I have handled, over the years. Talk about ZERO buyer’s remorse; this is a lifetime pistol. Yes, pistol; revolving pistol.
