I carry a Colt Cobra quite a bit I use a IWB holster and lately have been using a pocket holster and haven't had a problem.
It's one of the easiest and most rewarding projects I've ever done.
Thumb over trigger. Easy as pie, just as Sixto says. I have a Chief's Special and a Model 642 and I far prefer to carry the revolver that allows for single action shooting. Never a snag problem which I think is hugely overrated.
The hammer can prove safer in a 'close encounter' also...
Hammerless...have someone grab the cyclinder...then try to fire...it's a 'no go'...
With a hammer...have someone grab the cyclinder...you can still fire the cocked firearm.
For drawing from a pocket, the thumb on the trigger prevents any snagging...

I have bobbed the hammer on several of my Revolvers. Never had a problem. If you have good springs it will hit plenty hard.
Thanks for everyone's advice. I went ahead and bought a used SW 642. This is a great gun and hardly even remember I am carrying it, it is so small. It seems almost as small as the Keltec. This was a great purchase.

Good choice. It is completely reliable and gives you a lot of choices in the ammo you use. If you pull the trigger, it will go bang.
