    Only very seldom do I carry a full-size revolver; mostly in the winter months only when a full-size coat can serve as cover. Then I would carry a Colt King Cobra with a four-inch barrel. The King Cobra would be in a Old West Styles holster which is reminiscent of a Bianchi 111 Cyclone. Even more rarely, I would carry a six-inch Python or Anaconda in a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster or in an Old West Styles holster (also reminiscent of the Bianchi 111). But the coat must be very long for the latter.

    Ruger Security Six - CCW

    Regarding your Ruger Security Six 4 inch and your wondering if anyone still carries a good size revolver like this anymore. I just gave it up...reluctantly.

    I carried a Ruger stainless steel security six w/4" bbl for years, loaded with Federal 125 grain JHP, with two extra speedloaders. A fine weapon, reliable, accurate, deadly. Two most dangerous firearms are that Ruger .357 and a 12 gauge w/00 buck, and unbeatable duo in hostile circumstances, regardless of what others think.

    Recently gave my Ruger up, for some crazy reason, and I feel empty without it. It was a great weapon, no feed problems, point and fire - two in the chest, one in the head. Really great weapon. For some reason, I lost my mind and sold it, along with the rest of my weapons. Finally got a Ruger (love Rugers) P944. It's big, and heavy, but concealable and reliable -- which, as you know, is the primary requirement.

    If you're looking to carry your Ruger 4" well concealed, check out SmartCarry. It's a great holster, total concealment. Talk with Charlie at SmartCarry.

    Are you former or present Delta?

    Regards

    I also started carrying a 625, it's not too heavy in a Galco Escort/Elite holster or a shoulder holster.
