    No sure what my various EDC choices weigh. But I DO know what when I carry them, it takes a considerable weight...off my mind. And your photos continue to give weight (pardon the pun) to the idea of pocket revolver carry! Thanks!

    I don't have a dope scale.

    If you have a food scale, that will work just as well.

    Hummmm....without a scale. A fully stoked 1911 is right at about 3 LBS.

    That can vary a bit depending on 7 or 8 round magazine and if the frame has a rail or not.

    Also an alloy or steel mainspring housing can shift the weight either way a tad bit and (obviously) an alloy frame will weigh less.

    There are NO BAD scales. Only bad users! IMHO, this is a fine excuse to weigh something.

    Great point! Why do we sweat ounces in our EDC rigs, yet won't sweat a single drop to address the 15 (+?) pounds we pack around as "insulation". If we lose 3 pounds, we can all carry full-size, steel-framed fight guns!

    Oldpsufan, great idea. Just got on my bathroom scale with my LCR, deducted my weight, I figure I weigh 220 pounds, and dangggggg, LCR's weigh over 100 pounds !!!!! That's loaded with heavy magnums though.

    Break out the scales. EDC weight.

    Dope?

    This isn't a gram scale. I guess it would work great for a large quantity of "dope" or as we call it in 2014, pot or weed.

    It is a food scale for some of you who haven't ventured into the black hole we call the kitchen.
