    1" 45acp revolver

    in the current issue of G&A hanguns magazine there is an insert card to renew or signup and there is a picture of what appears to be a 1" 45acp revolver
    is this fictious or is it coming?

    S&W made one on the N-frame, I believe, a few years ago. I think it was/is a Performance Center gun, or maybe a special run for Lew Horton or one of the other big distributors. It may still be in production, though God knows why. As Evan Marshall famously quipped, "N-frame snubs provide an illusion of concealability."

    I don't see why a .45 revolver is so attractive when .357/.38 is such a standard wheelgun caliber.

    More "stopping power" than a .38 with lighter recoil than a full-charge .357.

    ... and consistent ammo across multiple platforms. If you own multiple .45s, and reload .45s.

    A whole lot easier to stay on target for that all important second shot. Remember anything worth shooting in defense is worth shooting twice and you may have to.

    The biggest problem for me with N-Framed Smiths is that I can't handle the gun as comfortably as an L-Frame or K-Framed gun.

    But as far as I'm concerned, the N-Framed gun's cylinder is too large in diameter, so that, coupled with two layers of leather, it becomes too bulky under vest or jacket. I'm far more comfortable with the K- or L-Frame gun.
