Shooting from "inside" a pocket; how important?
Question guys and gals; just how important or viable is the ability to shoot from within a pocket? I hear this mentioned alot when talking about revolvers versus autos and when talking about revolvers with hammers or without. So,...is this something you seriously think would ever happen? I know anything "CAN" happen but really, what's the likelyhood? Also, I imagine such an act would be in total desperation since there's no ability to aim or even point shoot. Then you're already behind the power curve on penetration due to going through your own cloths first.
So what do you think? Is this something so minor that you don't even consider it or is this something you really think about when you choose a revolver for CCW?
Why ask? I love snubbies with hammers. I have an S&W 642 like everyone else on the planet which is great for drawing from my pocket but I can't imagine ever shooting from anything other than a big coat pocket and then I suspect a hammered revolver could probably do so, although I'm not going to run any trials myself :tongue:
I'd like to get an S&W 60 simply because of love the looks and feel of an all stainless and I like the looks of a gun with a hammer.
Shooting from inside a pocket
Shooting from inside a pocket is a non issue to me. Yes it could be done,but I have never know anyone that have had to do it.All my snubbies are hammerless or have had the hammers bobbed. Simply for ease of draw from the pocket or IWB carry.
