It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
I've got a pair of Ruger SP 101, one has the bobbed hammer , the other is the standard hammer. I've got Concealco IWB and also Mika pocket holster for them. I've also got a nickle Colt Detective Special and a Charter Arms Under cover in stainless. I'm think about adding a S&W Airweight to the collection in the near future.
The only real difficulty I have with the Bulldog in the pocket relates to bending over to pick up something from the floor. I carry it in the right front pocket and I end up sort of stepping forward with the left leg and so that the right hip stays mostly straight and the left knee bends. I am 60 years old and many of my peers do that anyway so no one notices. Younger people might of might not be able to pull it off. Of course a pocket about 3/4" deeper would help. In my Dockers the grips are just a fraction of an inch below the pocket opening. Other pants might have a deeper pocket.

Is the finish on that Taurus called "Bright Spectrum blue", or something like that? I remember reading an article on Taurus some years back and seeing a photo of a .44 Special snub whose finish looked just like that. I really wanted that gun, but I don't think they make it anymore.this 617 I bought for my wife. She loves it.
I thought that the rather iridescent, "now you see it, now you don't" look of the light blue was very eye-catching and chic.
No photos, but sometimes carry an SP101 (3.06" barrel) .357 mag. I originally bought it as a Tackle Box Gun but it's accuracy & durability soon earned it a place in my CCW options. Also have a 2" S&W 12-2 (M&P) Lightweight .38 spl. (RB). But it was my father's (never carried) house gun & is in such wonderful condition that it's now officially a family heirloom tucked away in the safe.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
Are there a lot of grips avialable for the Taurus'? Someone point me in the right way.
God Bless America!!
Do not mean to mess up the tread but..Can someone tell me the difference between Smith-Wesson .38+P and the 38 super?
.38+P is a standard .38 Spl round that is loaded to increased pressure (to obtain a higher velocity)
.38 Super is a Automatic Pistol round developed in the 1920's see link Click Here
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Those bead blasted Gemeni Sp101 have got to be the best looking snubs out there.
