What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

It is small, but accurate and powerful enough. I feel very comfortable with a .38 caliber revolver because they rarely jam.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

I bought this firearm approximately 12 years ago, and carried it as my conceal carry weapon up until two years ago, when I purchased another .38 Special to carry that is an air-weight, and hammer-less. Now it sits on my bedside table for home protection.

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

Very mild recoil. Fits my hand very well.

How reliable is it?

Extremely reliable.
