I have been contemplating for a while now on getting me a small revolver to cc. I am a big automatic fan and thought that a revolver would be to cumbersome, and not easy to carry or conceal. With summer coming, I decided to go out on a limb, step outside the box, and i think the deal is what made me do it. I found a like new S&W airweight, with box papers, and the assurance it was only shot by Mom, propably on easter sundays only, but the gun appeared to be new money, and for $250, I went for it.
Only wish I would have tried one a lot earlier. I absolutely love this gun, and looks like I am going to have to buy another, as my Wife loves it as much as I do. For what it is, and for what I use it for, it is great.
I am not concerned about 15 round capacity, and if I know I am going outside to investigate the dog barking, I have plenty of other options. but for comfort and concealability, a big thumbs up to Smith.
After shooting it a couple of times, I am even more impressed. It is not a go to combat gun, it is a concealed carry gun, that functions and shoots great, and if 5 shots does not stop you, I can always give ya a knucklesammich !!!

I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

I carry my Ruger LCR frequently. It's a great little gun.

Congrats on the snubby. Everybody should own at least one. My LCR .38 is my favorite carry gun. Light weight and easy to hide under a loose t-shirt when carried OWB. Enjoy the snub. Go get another one for your wife. Never hurts to have an extra one on hand.

Revolvers for carry are very underrated by the whole hi-cap semi-auto, carry 50 rounds on you or you will die when attacked by multiple assailants or mubai style attacks crowd. They claim anything less than a hicap and a couple backup mags is unacceptable. Yet, nothing says get off me like a five or six shooter loaded with 158gr .38 lswchp +p, 135gr .38 jhp +p, or 125gr .357 jhp......
I am not going into combat. I am not fighting zombie hordes. I am not wandering around in gangland USA. I am not enforcing the law and dealing with societies worst. My LCR .357 or Cobra do the job just fine for me. Lightweight, packs a punch, and always there when I need it.
Last things I want to do is load out like I am going on a patrol in a war zone. I have friends that do this, they carry their semis with 2 or 3 backup hi-cap mags. I carry my 5 or 6 shooter with or without a speed strip and I come home just like they do, but a lot lighter and unencumbered.
There is a time to carry hicap mags and semi's. But my day to day isn't one of those times. I have learned over the years to carry to my environment and not over encumber myself with unnecessary ammo and gear. It makes the day to day that much more enjoyable.
I too am looking to add a good wheel gun to my stable. I was shooting a friends .38 recently and love the recoil characteristics.
