    Snubbies are very handy...

    I also like the snubbies in .38 or .357. The .38s have the advantage of generally being smaller and lighter weight. These are my two .38s - a S&W 642 for pocket carry and a Colt Detective Special (all steel, 6 rounds) for belt carry.

    Very few will equal it and NONE will ever surpass it.

    The holster appears to be close to an Askins design. I have found that the Askins does not hold as close to the body as the pancake.

    I think the PMK was designed for the female body, but it is a popular holster. Being a Sparks fan I would not question the workmanship, but not sure I would like the design. I have an Alessi CQC/S on order that I think would suit me better.

    I am normally an "OWB" Pancake guy and the Sparks pulls in as close in my opinion.

    It's a phenomenal holster for either gender and pulls the butt in extremely close to the body.

    I bought it for my Wife but, I have worn it also and I can't say a bad word about it. It's a great concealment rig.

    Speedstrips, yes

    Speedstrips absolutely. More portable and discreet than speedloaders.

    I carry 2 strips with 5 rounds per strip. One strip in a Galco 2x2x2 on the waist, the other strip goes in the pocket. When traveling, I'll also take a couple of loaders to leave in the car.

    Try a .357.

    I did a test on myself. I quick shot a .357 (7 shot) and then a 9mm (12 shot). The time... was within 10ths of a second the same. The difference ??? The groupings I had..... all 7 out of the .357 were a much tighter grouping and more accurate.

    Tells me which gun I should have in my hand if it's needed. The 7-.357 shots being more accurate, are going to do a lot more than the 12 .....

    You're right... it's UGLY! But a VERY good choice.

    Congratulations.

    Slip a speed strip in the watch pocket of your jeans. Always there, out of the way of your knife, change, keys, whatever's in your pocket. But, like has been said - practice.

    I must join in and admit, I am addicted to Snub Guns. My Snub Guns I practice with and carry are rotated and carried Two at a time. Taurus 617, Ruger SP101, Taurus 605, Rossi 971. They are the 357s. I carry at least one of them at all times IWB. For my back up or off hand gun I have a 642 or a Bobbed 37 S&W in my left front pocket. I use Speed Loaders and Speed Strips for back up Ammo.

    "It was a snubby I needed after all."

    An opinion many folks come to, sometimes reluctantly.

    I made the mistake of thinking my wife needed one. Now my S&W 637 sits in the safe.
    I still don't think I would part with it.

    I must agree. Luv my 642 with speed strips. Crimson Trace LG405 in on the way, too.
