I carry the medium velocity Remington Golden Saber ammo, which is 125 grain with a muzzle velocity close to 1200 fps from a snubby. The contours of the gun and grip allow it to ride very high on the belt with no printing at all. It is heavy enough (32 ounces empty) to handle the recoil of the ammo.

    That is one good looking revo!

    I started off with the XD in a Minotaur, but found that day in/day out, it's a 642 J Frame in the pocket (with either a Mika or Nemesis pocket holster). I'm becoming more and more of a fan of wheelguns...

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 have 2 pistols that I carry.

    A kel tecp11, and a S&WM&P9c.
    They have always gone BANG.
    If this was such an issue, why would the police and military use and continue to use Auto's for many decades now?

    Mine go bang as sonn as I pull the trigger, Just like a revolver.No safeties, decockers or whatnot.( I'm not putting you down if the pistol you use has any of these)

    But the main reason I carry these, as opposed to a revolver, is round count. 11 and 12 respectively.
    There is no revolver that can hold that many rounds.
    Will I ever need that many? I don't know, my crystal ball is not working, and I have a deep seated hatred for Mr. Murphy. Of Murphys law. Yeah, that Mr. Murphy
    If that is what your wife is familiar with, then she should go with that platform.
    Mine is and does.
    Can she and my daughters all shoot the auto's. in a pinch, yes.
    would they need more practice before being real comfortable, yes.

    You however should carry what YOU are comfortable with.
    If that is an auto, then so be it.
