I have been into guns/shooting/hunting etc since my high school days and bought my first handgun @ 21. I have been reading all the gun mags since high school and was brainwashed at an impressionable age that the only gun worth carrying was a high-cap wonder 9 or bigger and that a semi was the only way to go due to the higher capacity, longer barrel per gun size and especially due to the thinner profile than a revolver.
I have been carrying 9's, a PPK/S and now a Kel-Tec 380 for years.
However now that I am closing in on 50 years old I am growing weary of clearing jams, spraying casings then trying to pick them up, dealing with magazines, disassembling/reassembling to clean, and I'm especially getting tired of small auto slides biting my thumb knuckle (yeah I know it's a user error but it's a reality of life and it sucks).
I am getting real close getting a good J-frame and moving over to the dark side of enjoying the ruggedness, ease of manual of arms and reliabilty of the wheelgun.
My problem is I have been brainwashed into thinking that revolvers are too fat and bulky at the cyclinder to conceal effectively and when I'm carrying I want to be completely concealed and discreet.
What I am looking for is pointers, insights and tips from those of you that routinely carry revolvers on how to carry them and how to live with them in harmony in a world that seems to cherish the latest and greatest high cap, tactikewl semi-auto.
I'm turning into a grumpy old man and I need to learn how to live with the rugged, reliable, easy to operate and easy to clean 1800s technology.
So what are some good hosters, carry positions, methods of deployment and operation that those of you that carry wheelguns can offer? What does an old fart need to know to transition from a P3AT to a J-frame?
