    My 101 has been officially promoted to primary. Waiting on my CBST now.

    I've always lived by "I'd rather have a definite 5 than 15 maybe"

    I've carried a revolver for many years as my primary.
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    My very 1st gun was a Taraus 357 revolver with a 6" barrel. Shot like a dream. I then bought a Dan Wesson 357 max. It shoots like a cannon and I love it. Now I have a Ruger 22 mag and that is a thrill to shoot as well. Just cheaper than a 357 max. While most of my guns are autos I still really enjoy the feel and the click of a wheel gun.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    I bought an old 640-1 that looks almost new. Was surprised when I got it because it had a full action job. I've had, sold, and still have a lot of guns but that 640 is something special. I have small hands so my pinky can wrap up under the bottom of that grip and i can actually get a good grip.

    It's is a simple pleasure!

    I'm nearly totally converted to revolvers. If it wasn't for my Glock 36, which shoots like a dream, I'd be in revolver-only mode.

    An airweight centennial 38 is about as perfect a carry gun you can get for it's size and weight...:)

    It was a proud day for me when I picked up my first (used) 640-1 after 5 years of carrying only semi-autos. Variety is the spice of life.

    I know, I know...
    Glock-36 with 6 + 1 or the SP101 with 5...not much of a difference. I'm just lovin' 'em both.

    I love shooting my J and K frame Smiths. I carry them because they conceal very well and I shoot them great.

    I'm moving to 50% of the time carrying one of my K-frames as primary and my 442 as backup. Depends on what I feel like that day. Today was my Model 10 snubbie and my 442 backup with one of my speed strip pocket holders.

    I carried this today!!!
    rugerServiceSix357.JPG
    Ruger Police Service Six .357
    My first large caliber handgun.
    I paid $125 for it over 15 years ago and it still looks brand new.


    I need a much better carry holster for it. It's a tank.

    In my opinion ruger makes the best looking wheel guns out there. That thing is just sexy!

    For Civilian CC they are still VERY relevant. I think we could(well most of us at least) that Civilian CC and LE duty carry are well..worlds apart as far as intended uses and the possibility to have to use a handgun in self defense/defense of others... I think we could all agree with todays criminal element that high capacity semi autos for Police officers is probably a smart move. But IMO for Civilian CC a 5-8 shot revolver in .38 special on up is still a VERY GOOD and very RELIABLE and accurate weapon for SD..I like my CH85 snubby and can shoot it well for its intended purpose 12 yards or less self defense...I also love my Dan Wesson Model 15-2 and would not hesitate to use it in a home invasion type scenario...it probably goes Shotgun(if I can access it quick enough and get it running), Dan Wesson .357 4" then my primary CC weapon the Ruger SR9c.. hard to CC a full size 4" revolver so thats why I have the SR9c...but if I could Id have no problem using the .357 instead :)DanWesson.357 009.jpg
