I had a dream last night that I was in a gun shop and they had a Dan Wesson Pistol Pack, BUT, it was a 5 shot J Frame sized .357 Mag!!! It came with 2",3",4", and 5" barrels in the pack. I was fondling the poo out of it when I woke up. Then the sadness hit. A J Frame sized Dan Wesson would be such an excellent carry gun. I guess it is good to dream every once in awhile. The disappointment when you wake up sucks, though. crycrycry

Lil Dan. They made them but never made more barrel lengths than the 2". It may have been 21/4". I never bought one because I have Ruger SP101s in 357, 9mm, 32 mag, 327 Federal and, and, that's all. The 32 Cal has 6 Rounds. It is a good bit heavier than a Lil Dan but fit the same niche. If they had made other barrel lengths I would have been all over it.

They do show up on Gunbroker occasionally. A good number of members own them. Be patient.

Here is a picture of one of my 738+P Little Dans with LB Custom ebony grips. Factory grips are black rubber.  All Little Dans were chambered in 38 plus P.   Dan Wesson also offered an optional " bobbed" hammer for a short period of time. They aim very natural and are  excellent for CC

What a Beauty!!! I will keep an eye out. Very surprised they went .38 Special + P vs. .357 Mag. though.

357 would be a handful. I would love a Lil Dan in 32 mag. Great cartridge for pocket carry.
