I'd probably take the S&W, but both are nice.

Me, too...The Smith & Wesson DA Trigger is likely to be MUCH more "User Friendly" than that of the Colt, and that's how we'll be usin' a Snubbie, after all!... ....mikey357

I'll take the Smith too, Colt's cylinder latch confuses me, (opens backwards), but you have a nice pair there.

I hate to admit it, but more and more, when choosing between the Colt and S&W .45 revolver, I am choosing this instead:

I like the Smith, since a snubby is DA weapon and I prefer the S@W DA trigger generally.
I like those BB wad cutter loads too.

Oh but this thread is making me sad. In college I picked up a Colt 1917 with the intent of snubby'ing it. Even though it was a refinish (which is why I bought it) somebody else offered, the cash strapped student I was, too much money for it.

Fast forward to last week and I missed a chance at a Taurus snubbby Pathfinder in .41 mag for a steal price. I fully intended to snag it but family things came up and I got distracted before the auction ended.

I had convinced myself that, since around 1,100fps with a 210 is right in my comfort zone it should be a chip shot reloading for the short barrel.

I think I'll comfort myself now by strapping on my Charter Bulldog
