I was issued a model 36 at one time or another and I carried it for probably ten years. During that time I picked up a Taurus model 85 dirt cheap new. So when I retired and had to give back the 36 I had a complex about carrying the Taurus and bought a S&W 637. I suppose the complex had more to do with it than anything, but I do like the light weight and the Taurus is heavy, so the Smith has become my carry gun. Over the past twelve years I've often times thought of getting rid of the Taurus, but it just isn't worth enough to make it worth while. Monday I went out to the range to shoot. There hasn't been anyone there on Mondays. I shoot the Smith all of the time. I just like snubbies. But Monday I took the Taurus out with me too. I ran fifty rounds through each gun and I walked away feeling guilty that I think that Taurus is a better gun, and I feel that way every time I shoot it. Just saying. It is a heavy little thing though.
