I never leave home without it. Sights by bowen. Basic action tune by me. World's best pocket holster from PCS.

Yup, a J-frame goes everywhere...

I still think that, even with all of the great midget-sized auto-loaders that are available today, a J-frame is still the perfect back-up gun. They are all-day comfortable in a good ankle rig, unobtrusive in a pocket, and infinitely concealable.

I have to agree with Jason, since Colt quit making their fine little .38's years ago, the S&W J-frame basically has the market covered! In my law enforcement career here in Virginia, I cannot think of too many officers that I worked with that DIDN'T carry a J-frame somewhere on their person on duty as a BUG, and most of us carried them as a primary weapon off duty, mostly due to the four distinct seasons and it was always easy to hide, no matter the attire. I emphasize again, almost EVERY cop I know carries one (and cannot be sure about some of the co-workers that I didn't know if they carried one or not)! Man Colt is sure missing out on a small fortune by not offering a version of their small framed (Detective Special, Agent and Cobras) in this day of "shall-issue"' concealed carry laws and oficer survival issues! (Glad I have my little Agent Lightweight that has been customized by Dave Sams...great little pocket gun with one more round of ammo, and more accurate than I can shoot).--John

From a local prospective, I have to disagree with JR. Most cops I know now carry a mini-glock in either 9 or .40 as a BUG, usually in an ankle or vest holster. Partly I think because the G gun is very popular with the masses -- being the AK-47 of pistols so-to-speak. And partly because I don't think they know how to load or unload a revolver.

I have to admit that most times, I back up my 1911 with a G-27 in an Alessi ankle holster. Mainly because if I step in a puddle, I don't care.
