    I have carried a S&W M-25-5, 27-2 and 629 concealed. They have 4", 8 3/8" and 6" Bbls. The only practical way, is in a shoulder holster under a heavy coat.

    I'm looking into carrying my 4" 29-2 during the winter, probably OWB under a sweater.

    A 629 3", a 624 3", a 610 3" and a 625 4" have all been carried by me at one time or another. I carry them in an OWB strong side under a sport coat. No problem.

    I do.

    I carry a 4" N-Frame under an untucked Hawaiian Shirt with Cargo Shorts in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II and a 1 1/2" Belt. I changed the stocks to a set of Eagle Secret Service Grips as they are a little better at concealing the butt of the handgun.

    I don't carry the 4" N-Frame much anymore, but did for about a year on a daily basis. I went with a 3" GP100 as my concession to "smaller and lighter".

    Lately I've been on a 1911 "kick" and I'm packing a 5" 1911 daily when I'm off duty. On Duty I carry the issued crap. When I have the 1911 on me I also have a J-Frame, and maybe an SP101, as well as reloads.

    I'll probably buy a second 1911 next year and carry two of them, along with my reloads. The N-Frame really isn't that much harder to hide if you use a good Belt and Holster, and change the Stocks.

    I carried a six inch 25-5 in a shoulder holster for about 5 years. Used a Bianchi holster with a shoulder harnes I made myself. Works real well.

    N Frame

    I carry a 610 S&W occasionally in a Fist holster. I mostly carry it openly at the gunshop, but I'll casually conceal it with an untucked shirt on those errands and miscellaneous trips to and from work. Spaer couple of moon clips in a single speedloader pouch, too. Nobody notices, nobody cares if it prints. Too many sheep don't even know I exist, much less that my shirt hangs funny or that I might have something on my belt.

    Thumbs up

    Well yes I do. It's a 29 3" barrrel in a TT Gunleather OWB holster. Changed the combats out for a set of Ahrends and it's easy to carry and hide. Took the picture quickly so it rides way higher than the pic as I really didn't cinch the buckle up and skipped the side belt loop on my Levi's.

    Carrying an N frame isn't that hard. I know people who carry the Ruger Redhawk which is slightly bigger as well.
