    Who carries a .357 in their pocket?

    I want a .357 for pocket carry and/or owb carry. I want the punch of the 357 and the weight of an all-steel gun. I'm thinking of a S&W 640 2" or a Ruger SP101. Anybody have experience carrying these?

    The Ruger is cheaper but the S&W is nicer looking IMO; other than that, they seem pretty even.

    I carry a S&W M60 2" .357 in my back pocket most of the time.

    I have a Ruger SP 101 2" with a bobbed hammer. Pocket carry is doable, but really not practical for me. My S&W 642 is much easier to pocket carry.

    Do you carry it with the grip facing in towards center or out (back hand grasp)?

    Depending on what I'm wearing I can carry my SP101 in my front pocket with no real problem.

    i carry a S&W 636-L in my pocket and IWB alot... almost the same pistol except mine has the shrouded hammer.
    front pocket can be tricky if you have the 3 finger grips, i have the same grips you have posted on your pic...
    i love rugers but i wont hesitate to choose a S&W over a ruger if were talking wheel guns...

    is the sp101 in .357 magnum?
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    Mine is, but I've also seen them in other calibers.

    From the Ruger website:
    Available in .327 Federal, .38 Special and .357 Magnum (which also accepts the less expensive .38 Special cartridges)
    Ruger® SP101® Double-Action Revolver

    Count me in! I carry a S&W 340sc in my pants pocket (in a Don Hume pocket holster), occasionally on my ankle, and also occasionally in a Ryan Grizzle IWB -- In fact, that was the way I carried it today. I carry other weapons, but, I find the little snub nose revolver reliable and easy to grab. Every permit holder should own one! IMHO

    I love carrying the SP101 IWB or on a belt.
    For pocket carry, I like the 642.

    I carry a M&P 340 in a Desantis Nemesis. Very potent little pocket package.
