I'm looking into a pocket revolver in the near future and was wanting to get a few opinions on the pros and cons of each. This will mostly be carried in a pant pocket and once in awhile a jacket pocket if ever. Right now I'm leaning toward a hammerless model rather than shrouded. It seems it'd be easier to keep up maintenance on a hammerless. While the shrouded model allows single action shooting I don't think anyone would ever use this option on a self defense pistol might be ok to use it in practice, but I want to practice the way it'd be used in defense. Thanks for the info.
