    It might even replace the 38 I'm carrying.

    Wow! I'm not alone; I bought a 37 too, liked it sooo much I bought another in OD green on GB. I should be getting it at my FFL Monday. This cal is addicting and if more try it, it will likely come back into popularity like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

    sweet! I bought the 37, but I think I'm going to get the 38 next. I want to join the 37/38/39 club!

    I let a friend shoot mine today and after firing off one magazine all he could do was smile. I think he may be interested in a 38 now :whistling:

    I carry my 38 (with Glock tac. lite, exactly as pictured above) in a size-large Tommy's Gun Pack...

    I put the lite on my 37, and it fits just finely in there, so I think I'll start carrying my 37 and leaving the 38, with its lite (yes, I have 2) home in the little safe for home defense.

    I think I'll leave the new 37 sealed in the case for a while. :embarassed:

    How quickly can you get your gun out of that? I carry my G38 in a Blade-Tech Nano IWB. I'm trying to be good an not buy another gun but just spend more time and money practicing with the ones I have. It's hard though.

    I wish they would sell the 38 and 39 for that price !
     
  8. Check out gunbroker.com for the 38 & 39. Looks like they are available for $389. :wavey:

    Well...I suppose 3 - 4 seconds. Unclasping of the buckle and then pulling forward takes 1 - 2 seconds and then pulling the pistol out takes another 1 - 2 seconds. There's no Velcro to rip open (and sound like a shriek if one does it quickly). The zippers open quickly, quietly, and easily, and I usually leave the top one open.

    These Tommy's bellybags are my purse; I carry not just an extra mag but pens & pencils, checkbook, wallet, handlotion, lipbalm, toothpics, nailcutters, etc. Works quite well.

    As they were the 1st time, the folk at Bud's were very efficient again. They received my check on Monday and shipped my pistol on Friday of last week. It arrived at my local dealer, Lone Wolf, this morn, and I already have it cleaned and loaded. The total cost was $409 including replacement-cost shipping insurance and LW's $25 transfer fee.

    TY. The 37 feels SO good in my hands that the 1st one has already replaced my 40-cal. 35 in USPSA competition, and my 'new' 38 is sitting home in the safe for home-defense use by my wife, while I every-day-carry the 37.

    JB - what holster are you using for CC w/ your 37? I've got recommendations from some folks and hope to look at some this w/e.

    I'm curious too how you CC that 37. I have a galco IWB for mine that I could only conceal with a very large sweatshirt without obviously printing.

    "I'm curious too how you CC that 37. I have a galco IWB for mine that I could only conceal with a very large sweatshirt without obviously printing."

    See the 5th note in this tread; I use a size-large Tommy's Gunpacks bellybag...
    http://www.tommysgunpack.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=1 ...so maybe it's not 'concelaed' from some perspectives. It works quite well from mine, and the bag also carries an extra mag, my checkbook, pen, pencil, wallet, etc.

    Here's my black one; I also have dark-blue and brown versions*.
