    My first carry revolver (pics)

    I never envisioned myself carrying anything but a semi-auto pistol. That's gonna change as soon as my Lobo Holster is delivered. It's a S&W Model 40-1. She sure is a tiny little thing.

    A set of nice custom made Stags and a shiny T-Grip is on it's way.

    I took her out today to take some photographs in her factory attire. I'll post a few more photos once the holster arrives and the stags and t-grip are installed.

    I'm hoping to take her out to the range tomorrow.

    Here's a few photos of my first carry revolver...

    My first carry piece was a Colt Gov Model 1911-A1. Carried a few of those till the mid 80s. When Colt introduced the Office's Model I got me one of those and it served me well for a number of years. Fast forward to the 90s when I started carrying my first polymer semi-auto, a H&K USP 45c.

    Into the new millenium. I sell the Compact USP and get a Rohrbaugh R9s. ....then got a Detonics CombatMaster that I carried for about a year. Sold it and acquired a nice Kimby Ultra Carry. Got bored with the Kimby and got a Seecamp LWS380. Put the LWS380 in the safe and got a LWS32. Carried that along a with a Kahr PM45 for a good while. Sold the Kahr and and got a Glock 26. Carried the G26 for about a year and sold it. I recently purchased a Taurus 709 Slim.

    All of the above are semi-autos. All but the Kahr were reliable dependable accurate weapons. They served me well. Of the above listed weapons, the Seecamps, the Rohrbaugh and the G26 were the only weapons that I could pocket carry comfortably.

    My S&W can be pocket carried and has an enormous advantage over the Seecamps, the Rohrbaugh and the G26. And those are excellent carry weapons..!!

    Actually, my S&W Model 40-1 has an advantage ( many many) over ALL auto-loaders that can be pocket carried, regardless of caliber. Pretty bold statement, isn't it..??

    Can you guess what the advantage is.??

    Almost to pretty to carry! I you will love it for both its function and the nostalgic beauty it brings with it......and the Tyler T's are also an awsome addition.

    Very nice. You might want to get a silk-lined holster to carry it in.

    All I can say is WOW. Enjoy.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
