In 1950, The LadySmith snub-nosed .38 was developed by Smith and Wesson. It was designed especially for women. Hammerless, it didn’t snag on clothing and could be secreted in a small purse.
LadySmith is the life story of Jimmy Koch, relentlessly bullied in his youth by an older brother and a complicit sister, as well as school classmates. He’s unable to stand up for himself until he discovers LadySmith in his grandfather’s storeroom.
LadySmith is an amber world, where answers are never black and white. Life is lost and found. There are shipwrecks and rescues. At the end of each, something floats to the surface to reveal what we’ve become.
