    Anyone ever carry an N frame snubby IWB?

    Have the chance to buy a Summer Special IWB for a good price and was wondering how cumbersome it was to carry a revolver that big IWB.

    Had to sell my .40 for family financial reasons and was looking at possibly carrying my 3" 629 when I wanted something bigger than my little .38 S&W 649.

    With the right clothing it should work ok.
    I uesd a fannypac and a 4" barrel 625 and have used a 5.5 redhawk in it, though the 5.5 barrel is a little long for comfort..

    Yes, though it not a snubby, but a 4". I used IWB rigs no longer in production. I used a personally-owned S&W Model 58 as a duty sixgun off and on from 1984 to about 1990 or 1991, and then, as now, believed in the wisdom of carrying one's duty handgun on one's own time.

    I carried a 3" 625 N-frame IWB when I was thinner. Now that I'm not, I find a gun that large doesn't work well with my "enhanced" physique.

    I carried a 5 inch 629 classic for one winter in TN. Under a jacket, it wasn't a problem. Back then, like 15 or 16 years ago, I just stuffed them in my belt.

    I have carried this S&W M629 "Trail Boss" with a 3 inch barrel IWB from time to time. Holster by FIST and a very good gunbelt and had no problems at all.

    I daily carry either my 4" 325PD or 329PD. I find 'em very comfortable, and extremely concealable, in either the Sparks VM2 or Comptac CTAC. Lately, I've also been enjoying carrying OWB with my FIST #12.

    Tshirt/shorts with the IWB holsters, Hawaiian style shirt with the OWB.

    Revolvers conceal nicely! (I must say, easier to conceal than my Kahr CW9!)

    How about the weight? Even a snubby N frame has a fair amount...
