    I have a bunch of semis AND a bunch of S&W revolvers.

    I often carry one of my J frames (pocket ) , and sometimes a shortbarreled K frame. (IWB)

    I feel very safe with 5-6 rounds of 357mag.

    When I feel the need to go 'wheeled' it's an LCR in the pocket and/or Dan Wesson 2 1/2 inch w/Pachmayr Gripper grip in a Don Hume 721

    You must have been reading my mind. I usually carry a Rock Island compact .45. With my body build (No butt and expanding belly), I find keeping my pants up and constant chore. I have started wearing suspenders which helps a lot. I have been contemplating a switch to an LCR (357) for CC. The weight savings would make carrying a little easier and I wouldnt feel under gunned with the 5 shot 357 as I dont hang out in trouble spots. plus I really like the simplistic revolver operation. I know my spouse would be pressed to ever use a 1911 which I have 2 for HD.
    The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

    SP101 with a 3" barrel IWB crossbreed super tuck. I forget it's there most of the time I'm so used to it and that's how well the crossbreed works.
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    I carry a Charter Arms Undercover 38 Special in High Noon Split Decision Holster. I love the holster. High Noon uses a minimal clip that does not have a tang that sticks out under the belt, rather it rolls the end under the belt. I carry it with my shirt tucked in all the time and have never ever been made.

    Appendix carry a S&W 442 often in an IWB Size 0 Nylon Blackhawk $12.00 holster. I have other holsters - strangely enough, this one's my favorite. The holster also rides in a pocket better than a Nemesis for me.

    Two S&W360sc 1-7/8" scandium/titanium .357 snubbies, one in a homemade pocket holster, and the other in a homemade under-the-shirt shoulder holster.

I don't know.... maybe I just need to work with her to learn good semi-auto skills?

    She shoots my G26, SW642, Single Actions.... maybe just teaching safe semi-auto carry technics would be ok. I also have an LCP I was thinking about having her try out.

    I do like revolvers a lot though. I was thinking of carrying a Smith 65 3" or a 2.5" Model 19..... or 66. Possibly even a Ruger sp101.

    I am thinking OWB carry. I'm not a fan of IWB, especially with a big cylinder.

    So.... for those of you who carry a Revolver... what do you carry, how do you carry and any other thoughts you have on it.

    Thanks!

    PS. Wife has carry permit but has yet to carry. I want to fix that ASAP!
    I CCW one of 2 Colt snubs from the early 60s - and a Glock at other times. I carry IWB at 4:00 in an Alessi Talon holster. My snubs shoot 6 .38 sp, Buffalo Bore ammo designed for .38 Spl.
    It's easy to just clip the holster on and go. I feel as well protected as with a Glock .45 acp.

    I carry both revolvers and semi-autos. I've gotten away from carrying IWB these days, so it's either pocket carry or OWB. I would highly recommend a MIKA pocket holster for your wheel guns. When carrying OWB I use a Galco Combat Master or Concealable holster. I never feel under gunned when carrying a 5 shot revolver, you shouldn't either...

    First thing my CHL Instructor said in the class was a revolver will fire faster than an auto. I also like the .38 +P ammo which is available pretty much. The problem is, concealed is tough, especially since I am not a big person. Guess we'll stick with the G23 - and with quality ammo and 6 drops of oil, it fires every time, contrary to a reply or two I have read.

    I have a full sized revolver in my CCW rotation among the semi-autos, and I occasionally carry a small frame snub in .38 or 9mm and sometimes even a little .44spl Charter.

    It doesn't have to be black plastic with half a box of ammo in the grip to be effective for SD.

    I've been carrying a S&W M19-4 in a Fist #12 OWB holster lately and I love it.

    AFAIK, only the bionic man could fire a revolver faster than an auto. And even he couldn't do it with a Nagant.
