    Who carries revolvers and what?

    I know there is a super snubbie thread on here with lots of great great pictures. But I was wondering who actually carries a revolver and what do you carry? Does anyone carry a non snubbie? Pictures would be nice also. I plan on carrying my 3inched barrel sp101 when I travel once I take my Utah ccw class. I also plan on carrying it if we ever get ccw here in Illinois. There might be others down the road I carry but I just really really love the revolver. Plus I live in a rural town of only 6000. Closest larger city/town is 3o miles away about 30k and then Springfield Il an hour away so I dont have to worry about fighting off large groups of angry muggers. Years ago when I lived in northern Indiana I carried a Taurus with 4 inch barrel.

    At one time I carried a friends SP101 .38 spc with 2.25" barrel. I loved that gun and hated given it back. I have been looking at getting one of my own one day.

    Sometimes Glock, sometimes J-frame Smith with reloads.

    Depends on where I am going and what I am doing.

    1.) Charter Arms Bulldog .44 in OWB belt slide holster.

    2.) S&W 642 in pocket or OWB belt slide holster.

    I also have a S&W model 64 and a Charter Arms .357 Mag Pug that I will carry on occasion.

    If I'm carrying a revolver, it's a snub.

    I just picked up a j frame 642 yesterday. My plan is to put this into the EDC rotation If, I can get good with it. We will see how that goes. Until then the MP 9C gets put on my hip.

    I normally carry a Taurus 605 everyday

    But also will carry either a S&W 65-2 or a Ruger Speed Six depending on the weather and what I am doing

    I almost always carry a SP101 2.25" in .357mag. I say almost because sometimes I carry a Sig P238. Just depends on how I'm dressed.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    I mainly carry my Ruger KLCR .357mag, loaded with either Speer GD .357mag 125gr, or Speer GD .38spl +P 135gr for Short Barrels. Love the little Ruger, and have installed a Big Dot Sight which helps with combat accuracy tremendously. Take care.

    I carry a S&W Model 10. Of course, I wear a kilt so that makes it easy to conceal.

    i might carry my S&W 66/2.5" loaded with 38SPL+P's or mild .357MAG loads perhaps 10% of the time.

    my S&W 625/.45ACP/3" gets carried around ten days a year.

    my S&W 625/.45ACP/Performance Center/4" gets carried five days a year. just for fun.

    all of these are carried in OWB holsters with 3-4 reloads.

    my S&W 642/J-frame Airweight/2"/.38SPL has largely been replaced with a Kahr CM-9 as my pocket carry gun.

    Lowercase, that model 64 looks sweet.

    Bedian, I have a simply rugged holster also. I find that the top of mine kind of rolls inward making reholstering a little bit of a challenge. Does yours do this or no?
