Tubbs for just being part of the coolest thing on television.

But, until this thread, I've never, ever really thought about 'cool' and 'snubbie' in the same thought. Not one of the mentally-pictured television or movie 'cool guys' in my head ever has a snubbie in that image. Ever.

Until the first page of this thread where I saw that picture of Tubbs and a snubbie I guess. Even then I'll be surprised if I remember it.

Also, Sylvester Stallone in Tango and Cash ... there is a scene where he does a reload for some "hotter" ammo to stop an 18 wheeler (??) headed for them...

NYPD Detective Stanley White (Mickey Rourke) in The Year of the Dragon. A cool movie from the 80s! He carried a Colt Detective Special as his duty gun.

Yep I have to agree with an entry earlier about NYPD Commissioner Reagan, when he pulled his snubbie and got the bad guy to save his daughter. I've see him put that snubbie in his pocket several times.

Nick Charles, from "The Thin Man" movie series of the 1930s, with his Colt Detective Special. I love these movies.

Spenser, from Spenser for Hire, and the Robert. B. Parker novels. I hear tell Spenser is coming back to tv on TBS this fall or in 2012. Parker has quit writing Spenser novels since he unfortunately died last year, but that tends to put a stop to new books.

I think Rockfords gun was in the cookie jar on the counter in his trailer, wasn't it?

Thinking back, I'd have to say the late Sheriff Buford Pusser, the "Walking Tall" sheriff of McNairy County, Tennessee.

At the Police Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, they had the Corvette that he died in on display. They had a snubbie Colt Python .357 on display that he was wearing at the time of his death. They've also got a 2-inch barreled S&W Model 15 .38 Special that he wore during his career, along with some framed letters testifying what an excellent shooter he was.

can you imagine what Pusser's revolvers would be worth with a documented history like that?

Tom Selleck in Blue Bloods (current TV shows). A bad guy grabs his adult daughter and holds a knife to her throat. Tom pulls out the .38 J-frame. The guy says, "Drop it or I'll kill her."

Tom squeezes off one round and nails the guy between the eyes (about 12 to 15 feet).

No hand wrenching, jitters or noise. Just like shooting the paper targets. Perfect.

Detective, Lennie Briscoe in Law & Order. Aptly played by Jerry Orbach.

I'm pretty sure Selleck's gun is a Colt, so that would be a D-Frame?

Yes, its a 2nd model I believe, maybe first model, Fitz Special Detective Special. There's been plenty of shots of it and you can see where the trigger guard is cut away. He explains it in one episode to his father. His father asked why he was still carrying his (the fathers) old .38 when he could have an automatic. Selleck then comments that it worked for grandpa. So in the show its Tom Selleck's character's grandfather's Colt originally thats been passed down to his father, then him. (Hopefully that doesn't sound confusing the way I wrote it!)
