    Used to carry a beautiful Colt Detective Special 2nd gen Nickle plated. Now my daughter carries that gun. I carry a Sig p239 in 40 S&W on occasion but primarily carry my S&W642 in a Galco Belly Band. This combination disappears under a dress shirt. My wife carries a S&W 637. We both use Speer GDHP 135 gr 38 SPCL designed for snubby wheel guns.

    Either a 640 or 649(38 not 357) for me. Never both at the same time

    Which gun, Bud? I am guessing it will be in .45 ACP?

    Ammo sidebar to this thread...

    I just test fired the new Speer Gold Dot short barrel ammo, .357 mag, 135 gr, GDHP.

    This is the ammo made for short barrelled .357s.

    I ran it through my 3" S&W 66 and my 3 1/2" S&W 27.

    I shot it at my steel in the pasture at 15 yds. It was dead on in both guns and rocked my plate hard.

    This is my new wheelgun carry load.

    Very Impressive stuff.

    You know, I have to say that I've been carrying my 226 for a while, and I just don't like it as much as my Speed Six. If I ever can find a good holdter for the Ruger, I'll probably switch back.

    Yep. I carry a S&W 19-3 2 inch, and I'm picking up a 3 inch 66 tomorrow. I also have a model 37 and a 1.5 inch model 10.

    I see no reason to break myself of the habit of always having a small revolver nearby. Currently use a S&W 340PD as either primary or backup gun. Have a selection of autos with greater capacity and higher caliber, but don't underestimate the value of a good wheelgun.

    I suspect you will love that 3" 66. I have one in an El Paso street combat as I type.
    If you haven't tried the Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel .357, give them a go.

    Ridge Runner - I do upon the seldom occasion carry a Custom "Bobbed" DA/ SA S&W Model 37 Airweight. And always carry a "Shorty" NAA Mini Mag in a pocket holster when my wife & I walk the parks in the evening time here abouts. This loaded w/ 2 rnds. of Magnum"Snake-shot" (Pronouced "Faceshot"..) then 3 rnds. Magnum HP. But to completely answer your question; I too carry an auto loader of one sort or another most often.

    If i were to carry a wheel gun again i think i would get the Thunder-Ranch Special , or possibly a Taurus snubby in .44sp or .45 Colt. Those Thunder-Ranch Specials are rather pricey, but i am a sucker for the older stlye N-frame S&W revolvers. OR maybe find a older N-frame model in .357 and send it off to Hamilton Bowen for a conversion to .44sp or .45 Colt.

    Depending on how hot it is and what I'm wearing I sometimes carry a 3" S&W Mod 13 or the Colt Cobra.
