I had one of those. It was uncomfortable to shoot but it weighed next to nothing. Good for carry, not so much for practice, at least with +P ammo which is what I used.

I will carry an SP 101 from time to time. IWB in a Bianchi Pistol Pocket, mostly. My carry load is the old all lead SWCHP 158gr FBI load. The weight of the SP 101 makes it more controllable to shoot.
My reload is a Speed Strip in a dump pouch. Sometimes I will toss a speed loader in a jacket pocket.

Guilty.

I do have a Smith 642 and a 640 that I do carry every now and then. They're pocket carried when it's the only option or the most sensible option. I've shot the 340 with full magnum loads an it is not fun. My steel frame 640 with magnum loads is not fun, but manageable.

I've got a 3" round butt Smith 66 that carries well in an El Paso Saddlery pancake holster. While heavy, it does make for great carry gun. I haven't started carrying it yet, but I've got a Ruger 3" GP100 in 10mm in the same vein as the Smith 66. Then there is a Smith 629 Mountain Gun that I carry in a Galco Silhouette or Mernickle cross draw or Wilderness Safepacker because, well, after all, I live in Alaska...

2 inch Model 15 in an old pancake I got from CID back when they still carried Model 10s. 3 inch GP100 on colder days and two speed loaders. Comfortable.

I carry a 442PC or 340PD quite a bit, especially during the summer. I've shot J frames for a long time and find they just naturally point well for me.

Several. A 642, a K6s DCR, or a Ruger SP 101 in 327 federal magnum. I'm considering an LCR in 327 as well. As you know, the LCR's in more potent calibers are all metal and impress me as more substantial. I've stayed away from the new Colts as fit and finish strike me as poor, especially for the price.

S&W model 60 in a Milt Summer Special, and one HKS speed loader. Been my primary EDC since 1995.

While my daily carry is normally some variant (or combination of variants) of the P320, I have a 360J in .38 special that I occasionally use as a pocket gun, when I absolutely can't carry anything else. I also have a 3" SP101 that gets carried as a woods gun, although I recently acquired a 2.75" Speed Six that will probably replace it. This past summer we went backpacking out west, and my 4 5/8 Blackhawk in .45 Colt came along for the ride, loaded with some very stout 300gr handloads. So while I wouldn't say my revolvers are my primary option, they do have their place as an option for carry in certain situations.

Only in the woods, and when I do, it's either a GP 100 .357 4" or a 629 .44 mag 4". It seems funny to conceal carry either of these, but I only ever open carry on my own property, and while it is legal to do so while hunting or camping in Florida, I still carry them concealed.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

For concealed carry, typically a S&W 642 or 638 in .38 special, or a Kimber K6 in .357. Occasionally a SP-101 or Security Six in .357. For hiking or home or waistband, one of several Blackhawks, Vaquero's or Redhawks in .41.

None as often as a pocket auto or waistband auto any more, though, and revolver carry for me now is generally pocket carry. I like revolvers, but never liked cleaning them, and magazines are cleaner and less bulky than speed stripes or speed loaders. The whimsy went out of dump pouches for me a long, long time ago.

I occasionally carry a Scandium M&P360 J frame. When I do, I have at least one speed loader.

If I will be outside all day I will sometimes carry my GP 100 owb in a Kramer MSP. By the end of the day I wonder why I don't do it more often.

I have sold all of my revolvers except for my J frame S&W 638 that I carried for ~17 years till I bought a Sig 365. The only drawback to the snubby is ammo capacity and the sights, which the 365 takes care of.

My current EDC is a SW Model 38, the body guard model, blued, now sporting Crimson Trace Grips.

Back in the day, when I carried either a Model 15 or a Model 66 whilst on duty, my snubby was an old model Colt Detective Special.

I carried a 340PD and a speed loader for years. It's still my primary when I cand dress to conceal my G26.
