Casting about for a Wednesday post, I figured I'd highlight my Model 38. It is a hump-back, a vestige of an earlier time, and one of my favorites. It's my everyday carry pocket revolver.
Some have said, from a purely logical, rational perspective that it is less than optimal to carry a small revolver. With only five shots, I'd me much better served by one of the wondernines (and, I include there the various .380s, which are simply short 9mms).
But, in the final analysis, I'm probably less than optimal in lots of things, and the J-frame revolver has been a trusted friend for about three decades, even if I've only had this one for six years.
