Comes right out. I place my thumb over the Hammer when I Draw it and there is never a snag

There is a real beauty in that New Model Colt Cobra in .38 special...old school, but yet new!

More often than not, I carry a Charter Arms Undercover with Inceptor ARX rounds. I like the lower recoil of the ARX ammo.

" I place my thumb over the Hammer when I Draw it and there is never a snag"

Somewhere, somewhen on this net ethereal there is a post by a cop who always carried a real out in the open hammer gun because in a scuffle he wanted it to snag rather than slide out of his pocket and skate across the concrete for all to see and grab.

So it was a dummy gun? Bad guy dives for it to find it loaded with snap caps, while the cop gets his real gun out?

LCR or 101?

For me, it came down to whether the comfort of carrying a 13.5oz LCR with a better out of the box trigger was worth the increased recoil vs a heavier(26 oz) SP101. I chose the SP and my arthritic hands appreciate the extra weight of the SP at the range. BTW, my model 64 4" is one of my favorites.

School...no the gun he carried was real with an exposed hammer that would snag in his pocket if he did not cover the hammer with his thumb on the draw. For him snagging was good.

I have similar arthritic hands. I went with stainless steel LCR weighing in at 17 oz and a stainless steel 3" LCRx coming in at 21 oz. I love my SP101 but the slighter LCR is a joy to carry.

I missed the “rather than.” I guess in a scuffle he’d be better off hand-to-Hand, anyhow.

But I still love my “dummy gun” idea!
