Default update-snubnose

Well I was stuck between an sp101 and charter 44spc...
I went with a s&w 60-15 pro series 357...wayyyy over budget.

I appreciate a Smith and Wesson snubnosed revolver. The handles are pretty and probably worth what you paid for it.

That's a nice looking revolver! If it didn't have the "Hillary lock" or MIM parts -- it would be a perfect CCW... Not really a snubby though

3" barrel isn't really a snub but its small enough to wear inside my jeans and it'll be more accurate. I didn't even notice the lock till an hour ago..whats bad about them? I know ill never use it

Most people just don't like the lock. There have been cases of them causing the gun to lock up but from what I've read they were all on air weight guns in large calibers. Read more about it on the S&W forum.
Nice gun.

Actually, some Performance Center guns don't use MIM parts. I'm hoping yours is one that dosen't. If the backside of the tirgger is "hollow" it is MIM -- if solid, it should be non-MIM. I agree on the 3" barrel. One thing that is nice about a 3" barrel -- is that you have a full-length ejector rod ensuring positive spent case ejection. The snub models have a short ejector rod -- sometimes requiring picking empties out with finger tips. The lock shouldn't casue you a problem -- I just don't like them! Nice looking revolver!
