jdb's pistols

Picking up pistols for the first time in nearly 40 years,
Jon Weaver and I went out to the range to fire my prized possessions:
a 1971 .22 caliber Colt Woodsman Sport semi-automatic
and a 1963 Smith & Wesson Model 36 "Chief's Special,"
considered the archetype .38 Special snub-nosed revolver.
These legacies from my father are in pristine condition,
and triggered several admiring comments from the other shooters.

Despite our inexperience, Jon and I exceeded our expectations
by firing some pretty tight patterns at 75 feet,
a particular feat given the 1.875-inch barrel on the Smith & Wesson.

My Latest Addition
With its fully-enclosed, snag-free hammer and +P .38 special ammo rating,
this S&W 442 Airweight J-frame revolver is a reliable and utterly discreet "carry" piece.
These days, I never leave home without it.
