Default The Presidential Sidearm- model 642

Just saw a video on the Presidents firearm ownership, although it didn't clearly say he had a 642 it implied that it was probably a J-frame.
Anyone have any input on this?

I have no idea what, if anything he might be carrying. There was a time firearms were presented to presidents on special occasions, though I would guess they, along with other "gifts", were cataloged, and stored away.


I do remember reading that LBJ gave the Secret Service fits as he liked to carry and shoot guns when on his ranch.

Personal opinion is a good thing, and everyone is entitled to one. The hard part is separating informed opinion from someone who is just blowing hot air....

I also heard he enjoyed driving around Washington DC with a whiskey and whatever open container.

It would be nice to get back to that, T.R., Lincoln and others were such manly men, back when we selected manly men for office.

Our great President Mr Trump has a ccw permit for New York City. He carries and practices with a 38spec. It's true.

There are regular folks in NYC?

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!
