I have gone back Old School

I picked up an other S&W model 36 J Frame today.
This one is a flat latch 3 inch barrel. I believe it was made in the late 1950's. I am in love again.

The first pistol that I ever bought was a SW 36.
I have a special relationship with that gun. I don't shoot it very much but I've had it almost 30 years. Congrats on finding a flat latch! Have you shot it?

Sounds very nice - the three inch ones are less common and look great

If I was looking for a collectible it would probably be a three inch flat latch or one of the adjustable sight versions.

Congrats on the flat latch 36. My first 36 was in 1973 so no flat latch. I haven't been without at least one J-frame ever since and always as a primary carry not a BUG. tom.

Good find.

A three inch heavy barrel 38 special J frame is a good shooter. That extra inch barrel makes a big difference in handling and performance. It is a 33% increase in barrel that is not the hard to carry and you will get a full ejection rod stroke.

Now what do you mean by "old school"?

Countrygun is he referring to guys like us?

Well then, you are about my age. We do not refer to that as "old school' but rather "as the days when things were made right". (ourselves included)

Good point, that's why I went with the 3 1/16th" barrel for my .357 Ruger SP101.

I went back to old school myself. I went to Ruger SP101 in .357/.38,S&W Model 64s 2,3,and 4 inch in .38. And a single stack 2 Rock Island one in .45 and the other in .38 super. The Rock in .45 is the compact 3.5 inch barrel and parkerized slide and frame.
