If you came across a great deal to purchase a S&W Model 36 "Lady Smith" snubby .38, would you have a problem packing her around CCW?

Can't you just change the pink grip to black?

Better if SHE had a pair of 36's. :D

I'd be fine with it...I am in a cowboy shooting league but since I'm new, they only gave me a pony, so that gun would be fine.

As long as I didn't have to march in the parade I'd carry it...:coolgleamA:

do you really care about the marketing name and color scheme..?

its a gun, not a fashion accessory.. I'm sure you'll get some ribbing for it (and rightfully so :43:) but i wouldn't hesitate to use something in hot pink if it fit my ccw needs.

I dont know, will it still put a hole in someone if needed? If so, f* it.

I take my wifes snub nose pink grips 357 revolver to the range . It wouldn't and hasn't bothered me the least. As for carry that wouldn't bother me either. besides someone might let their guard down thinking oh wow dude what are you gonna do with that pink gun yuk yuk yuk?

I don't think an attacker would laugh at it while it's pointed at them.

If you're really concerned about it (I personally wouldn't be), say you are supporting breast cancer research.

If they make a Lady Smith in .45ACP... yes, I'll carry it... :yes:

The Lady Smith name really means nothing one way or the other as to the functionallity of the weapon. So yeah, I'd carry it.

In any event, I aways liked the Lady Smith M65 better than the standard M65 because it has an ejector shroud.

My wife carries a S & W LadySmith 9mm pistol. Not a revolver, but a real nice handgun. It is smaller than a full size so it fits her hands better.
Got it from a male police officer that carried it as a back up gun. He had a trigger job and stuff done to it, but I noticed he also had the ladysmith name polished off.

Andy Taylor,

I saw a photo of a Lady Smith Model 65 with a 3" barrel. I think that would be a great revolver to carry concealed.

I'd have no issues with it

A real man carries what he damned well pleases and doesn't ask others how it looks.

Don't ask - Don't tell!

Well heck yeah, I'd carry it. I'd even go out of my way to buy one (for the wife of course).

If painting all my pistols pink got me a ccw in San mateo, I'd do it in a heart beat.

PINK, PINK, PINK...WTF?:shock:

Dudes the OP never said anything about PINK, he just asked if you'd carry a model 36 "Ladysmith" if you got a good deal on one...:banghead:

I used to rent one that was at my local indoor range often, the gun's great, well balanced and accurate. I loved shooting it. They don't all have pink grips, but yes do have "Lady Smith" on the frame, but who cares. If it really bothered you just have it removed or have the whole thing bead blasted to give it a stealthier appearance.

so do you mind if it were pink? :D lol


On a serious note, if it was legit and fitted well, I would not care. As long as I could a CCW permit :)

Yes I would definitely pick her up and ccw.

I don't think the crook cares if the business end of a revolver is attached to a Lady Smith or not.

im not familiar with that model. but from my point of view, why buy another weapon i dont want when i could just get a ccw and carry my glock 30?

Most definately!

i just googled that model, and honestly, its pretty cool. kinda looks like the cap guns i used to have when i was much younger. so if i found a great deal on one, i just might buy it. although i dont carry, so it would just stay at home with my other firearms.

This one? No.

LOL i've tried the model 60 ladysmith and i like it a lot except for the grips that don't do much to soften the blow of the recoil. Other than that I'd easily carry that great revolver.

If it felt good I'd buy it.

Yes I would - it would match my Mohawk.

No I wouldn't - Carrying a ccw without a permit would be bad.

Funny you ask this. I had bought a Model 3913 LS for my wife a long time ago (when she was my fiance). Long story short, she ended up not liking it very much. I hated it from day one, too, so ultimately we sold it; but giving credit where credit is due, the little compact never malf'd once and hit what I aimed at. I always thought it would make the perfect CCW gun--especially for those with a little wobble in their sides or as a T-shirt & shorts kind of thing--for anyone "man" enough to carry it. Ultra slim, compact, reliable, accurate, controllable, what more could you want? [Well, okay, the trigger was horrible, don't know how "ladies" are supposed to manage it.] Honestly, if it weren't for the horrible ergos (for me) and mag disconnect, I'd be carrying it myself.

So to answer the O.P., why do you care what the model number says? Why do you care if your (so-called) friends ridicule you for carrying a 'Lady'Smith? If it works for you, then to heck with anything/anyone else! Would you rather carry something else that doesn't work for you and then find yourself in a pickle with it? Do whatever you need/want to do.

it always seemed intuitive to me that a removable magazine fed semi auto pistol would be better for any kind of self defense situation because its much easier and faster to reload. that might prove beneficial if you're facing more than one attacker, or an attacker who also has a firearm.

No problemo!!

If it's for CCW you're the only one that's going to see it, unless you have to point it at someone. If you have to point it at someone they aren't gonna care if it says "superduper girlpower chick gun" on it.
