    S&w mod 38

    Talked my buddy out of another revolver and what a beautiful gun. Thanks for the help with my hand ejector and 58. Just looking for a year this was made. Don't think it's been fired but does have a little ring. My buddy didn't shoot it and it came from his uncle who had many guns and didn't shoot many. Probably should have taken these outside today but hope they're ok.Click image for larger version.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    I always liked the Bodyguard better than the Centennial because you can fire it single action. Yours looks great, enjoy it!

    Great bodyguard! I carried one for years and still think it is a great carry piece. I later switched to a 642, which fit in my pocket better. For a 2" J frame, single action really isn't an advantage for me.

    Carried a M38 in my inside coat pocked for years starting on 1972. I count it the best J frame made. Had an old upside down shoulder rig for dress wear. Finally shot it loose and traded it off. You have a real winner there and a good step above a 380 no matter how many rounds.

    The single action comes in handy if you want to hit something smaller( like a rabbit or squirrel).

    I always viewed the Bodyguard as one of the two absolutely best "pocket pistols" ever made. The other option is the Centennial Both of these will fire and function and keep on firing without tying up inside a jacket pocket. There is no need to remove the firearm from the pocket if you are out of time when the action starts, just hit the trigger. Of course, it can be a bit rough on the jacket.
