    I find I carry a Colt SF-VI or a S&W Model 15-4 snubnose almost as often as I carry a Glock Model 30. In certain clothing situations, a snubnose is much easier to conceal.

    Yeah, I usually carry the 438 when my 642-P isn't quite right, but when I wear a belt, it’s definitely the 640 or possibly the newer 649. Heck I don’t know…but they’re all pretty handy.

    Hi Falcon1,

    Could you elaborate on this? Such as which clothing situations? I am considering a snubbie.

    Many days of models of autos’ for sure! However, after about age ‘50’ our finer motor skills diminish to a point, and there’s no getting around it. As predictable as fading eyesight, the revolver becomes more of necessity than perhaps a preference. Oh, I.M.H.O. of course.

    Don't tell me this. I am 48 and just bought my first semi auto a month ago. Was looking foward to many years of enjoyment and carry with it.

    Oh sorry, the number '50' is simply a rule of thumb although it seemed like a fair place to start. YUMV

    I use an ankle holster for my snubnose revolvers a good deal of the time, because I am in numerous situations during the week where "frightening the horses" is a real concern. I have never been comfortable with a tuckable IWB (although standard IWB is what I prefer). The ankle holster is not tactically ideal, but is better than a firearm in the safe. It just works for me.

    I am often wearing a shirt, tie, and slacks in those "horse-frightening" situations, so the ankle holster is a viable alternative. YMMV.

    I carried a Taurus 85 a lot, and loved it. It is small and light, easily concealable, and plenty powerful enough for social work. Accurate at SD distances, too. The only drawback is round count. I have an affinity for snubbies, being raised on Mannix, Dragnet, Adam-12, Hawaii 5-0, the Untouchables, etc.

    I picked up a Taurus 85UL just a couple months ago to get a snubbie back in my collection. It's great for dropping in a pocket holster. Still deciding on what to get for my IWB holster. Still hard to beat the LCP for quick and easy carry.

    I have a 340 M&P, I love the smallness of it and how it is so forgettable on my belt or in my pocket, I stoke it with Gold Dot 135 Grain Short Barrel in .357. It certainly is powerful enough. That being said, I just feel more prepared for a SD situation with my Glock 23 and 14 rounds on board.

    Hey, I resemble that remark. Did you have to put it in print? Wait until you reach 60. Luckily, the motor skills are fine, but try wearing tri-focals for speed shooting.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    Love my 340PD! I started with a Taurus Total Titanium 85 and love both although the 340 gets the nod for EDC. I have an XD40SC I carry frequently but the 340PD just disappears completely with just about anything I wear.

    The only thing that has reduced the 340PD's carry time and increased my XD's time is my Crossbreed holster for the XD and the fact that it's now cold. I can hide the larger frame alot easier but I bet when it gets hot again the 340 will come back out to play.
