    Question Snubbie

    I am new to the ccw world and im am wondering if anyone has an opinion on carrying a 5 shot snub nose revolver as a primary carry. Currently I am carrying it as a back up but its more comfortable to carry as a primary. I just think a 5 shot might not do the job.
    I am a great shot with it as well as all guns (not the best shot out there) but, I always qualify expert will all weapons in the military

    All day, every day. S&W 642 with 135gr +p Speer Gold Dot short barrel rounds. Pocket carry in either a Mika or Nemesis pocket holster. Usually as a primary, sometimes as a BUG.

    I am not sure which is my main or backup when I carry two, but I often only carry my S&W 442. If more firepower is desired I usually bring another gun, and ammo, but I definitely do not feel under-gunned in most situations with my J frame. Got it in my slacks right now at a wedding.

    I carried a S&W Airweight 2" as an off duty gun for 14" years as an active LEO, no problem.

    I have pdx1 .38+p in mine, but any major manufacturer ammo would be fine.

    The load Camjr uses is the gold standard for snub nose .38s. Pun intended.

    I carry an LCR loaded with hornady critical defense and 2 speed strips for summertime and if I don't feel like carrying my .45.. Number 1 rule is to have a gun and a snubbie barely registers as there.

    I love my J frame 642. +P Gold Dots as a carry load with 2 speed strips. I received my min snap Side Guard yesterday. I am set now! I have other choices but this set up is my favorite.

    snubie

    I love my 360PD. I do not ever feel undergunned, but like many people, I'm sure, I sometimes feel more comfortable with a larger gun. But as of now, I carry my five-shot revolver 90% of the time. It's too light, too comfortable, and conceals too easy.

    Most days I carry a 5-shot .38 Ruger LCR as my primary; but I also carry a Ruger LCP as a backup.

    I keep the LCR loaded with SWCs. The LCP is loaded with FMJ-FPs.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    My Taurus M605 is one of my two primary carry guns. Sometimes I carry it and sometimes I carry the PT111 (9mm). Personally I do like the snubbie.

    This. I have carried the 442 for years in a variety of pocket holsters, with speed strips for reloads. If you feel you need something bigger, than carry something bigger. My other carry is a Kimber Ultra CDP II.

    S&W 642 + speed strip works for me. I am comfortable carrying and confident if need be to use. M Asoob recommends only using 5 rounds (they hold 6) in speed strip to give a better grip on reloading. I think he is correct as stress will be great. To be honest I really don't need a gun, I just like that I can carry. I am a law abiding citizen. I carry so that I will have a chance if needed. I obey no firearms signs and no carry zones. The criminals do not. If they choose to work outside of those confines we will be evenly armed. Provided my government will allow me to defend myself.
