    I have a 36-1. its my primary carry gun. It has a 3" barrel, wolff springs, no lock, and can handle +p for self defense purposes (while not recommended for target shooting). it was shipped in the 70s. I absolutely love it. Name:  IMG_20161003_222030988.jpg

    I had a 36 snubby that I carried when I had to walk to the bank on a daily basis to make cash deposits. It was a perfect carry at the time (before CCL) enjoyed shooting it and felt confident it would help in a predicament.

    The only reason I wouldn't buy a "new" Model 36, is I could probably find a used one for less, but that's me. Somebody's got to the buy the new ones, or the factory would be in trouble pretty quickly, wouldn't they? But the lock wouldn't bother me a bit. I've got two "J's" now, and that's sort of a surprise for me to realize, because if you asked me, I'd tell you I don't really care for J frames. My wife has a 642 Lady Smith (with the lock), and I just bought an old Model 36, "Rat Gat."

    BTW. A Don Hume J.I.T Belt Slide holster is about perfect for these guns. Inexpensive too. Look on E-bay.
