    Bianchi makes the speedstrips for sure, they come two per package - think I paid $6 or $10 for mine. I don't know about other sources though. I picked up a Don Hume drop pouch on the 'bay for about $5 (discontinued), no digging reloads outta the pocket.

    Speedstrip pouches can be had from Eric Larsen and Matt Del Fatti among others I sure.

    About 70% of the time I carry, it is a .357 revolver, usually loaded with either Speer Gold Dot .38+p 135 grain JHP or anyone of a number of brands of .357 125 grain JHP. I have about eight snubbies to choose from (and about twice that in semi-autos), but my most common revolver carry is either a Taurus 651 titanium, Taurus 650 stainless or Ruger SP-101.

    I carry a SW 442 most of the time. Lightweight and fits in almost any pocket. Also, in a jacket pocket I can have my hand on the gun in a most unobtrusive manner.

    I prefer to carry my 1911's. I just shoot them more accurately but
    I have carried my Ruger SP-101 hammerless in .357mag on several occasions and never felt undergunned. I always carry a speedloader as well.

    I have a buddy that his only carry is a Stainless Ruger Single Six backed up by a SP-101.

    Another friend carries a Colt Detective Special.

    My primary carry pistol is a glock-29 10mm. I do on occaision carry either a ruger speed six .357 or my m-10 S&W .38. I have two Don Hume holsters for both IWB and OWB that fit both revolvers. I Usually have them loaded with .38+p 158 gn SWHP. I carry these with 2 speed loaders that I keep in my coat pocket that is on the same side i carry the revolvers on . I find the extra weight helps to clear the coat on my draw stroke. Although i now carry a auto these two have become the nightstand guns. I have never felt undergunned with them though.

    Wheel Guns for Carry

    I carry my Taurus Mdl. 605, CH, SS, .357 and use a Mika's pocket holster. I do enjoy shooting it also. w/ combat grips too.

    I carry a 649 J-Frame daily, sometimes I carry one of my semi autos also. I am considering a switch to a 340pd, since it is lighter.

    Stephen A. Camp: Where and when did you get that 642 without the malfunctioning internal locking mechanism?

    Maclean3: Your not afraid of the internal locking mechanism locking up on you in the heat of the battle, or does your 642 have one on it?

    I often carry a S&W 642 as my primary carry gun, complete with CT lasergrips. I don't feel at all underarmed.

    I took a 3 day tactical handgun course with a 5 shot snubby and kept up just fine with the Glocks and 1911s. In fact, I beat a gun with a 1911 in a plate clearing drill that required a mandatory reload.

    I have a S&W model 19, I have yet to carry it because my normal carry weapon is an SW99 .40cal. But one of these days I'll mix it up and see how carrying the model 19 goes. Interestingly enough, the 19 came with a holster when I bought it.

    If anyone can PM me a source for speed strips, I would appreciate it dearly.
    The best reload is the New York reload, that means having two of the same gun on your person at once so instead of looking for a speedloader or speedstrip just grab your second gun!
