    Mr. Camp,
    I'm a lurker most of the time and I've followed your articles on this and other forums and as usual job well done.

    They are just so sweet to carry... I carry mine while riding my motorcycle in my nemesis holster in my front pocket. I forget its there at times....
    Artz...that is the same problem I have. I know you should not carry for comfort but protection. However, my 37 SW is just to easy to carry. I was considering going with a smaller .45 caliber pistol, but I am thinking hard on going with another revolver snub.

    I carry the Speer load in my M37. For whatever reason, my M37 shoots VERY high with 158gr loads (5"-6" at 10yds), so I can't use the 158gr LSWCHP, but the Speer 135gr load is dead on. It's also more accurate than the heavier loads. I compared it to the WWB 125gr SJHP that walmart carries. Accuracy is about the same as is POI, but the WWB SJHP has much more flash. That alone was the deciding factor to go with the Speer load.

    I carry the little Speer GDHP +P .38spls in all of my two and three inch relvolvers, .357mag or .38spl, except the 9mms 940s. I'm still carrying Winchester +P+ Ranger Ts in them.

    They say that the best self defense gun is the one that you have with you. If it is a snub, it is still better than no gun at all. I often carry a Taurus 85CH loaded with Remington 158gr. LSWCHP's, but have found that my Taurus Millinium Pro 9MM is just as easy to carry and with 1 spare mag gives me 25 rounds. To get that I would have to carry 4 speedloaders for the .38. It does find it's way onto my belt at times though.
