    Concealing a K-frame revolver

    Do any of you have a good solution for concealing a K-frame revolver (mine is a Taurus 617 seven shot, weighing 29 ounces)? Most of the recommendations I've seen are for a Glock or similar pistol with a narrower profile.

    I carry a S&W k-frame model 66 in a side guard double snap IWB holster almost everyday. With the proper belt and holster you shouldn't have too much trouble.

    Try a Pure Kustom holster. They are a sponsor for this site. Yes, they make holsters for Glocks, but they also make them for revolvers.

    Kinda like a hand-held Gatling gun, but with only 1 barrel. May have as few as 5 chambers and I have seen some with as many as 9 or 10. Old-timers know what they are and often prefer them. If you find an old-timer at the range, he may well show you a revolver and might even let you shoot one. He will also laugh like heck when you try the tap-rack drill on it after you shoot out the ammo.

    Yeesh. That's awesome. I have a Model 66 in the bedside table, but can't imagine carrying that beast IWB. I could see it OC in a heckuva holster but would not have imagined carrying it like that. Kudos to you.

    I do love to shoot that mother though.

    Mine only has the 2.5" barrel makes it easy to carry.

    First off your Taurus 617 is not a K Frame revolver. A K Frame revolver would be a Smith & Wesson. I used to own a Taurus 617. If you are carrying outside the waist band look for a pancake type holster for concealment. Check different holster makers. I'm sure FIST can sell you what you need. Order a holster made for your Taurus 617. For my K Frame S&Ws I use both FIST and Simply Rugged.

    You can CCW a model 66. I used to do so occasionally when I was an LEO.

    I agree, pancake or simply rugged. I conceal carry a blackhawk with 6 1/2 barrel in a Kramer IWB holster. You need a good belt first. Sometimes I wear suspenders.

    Wear that big gun, you'll feel good.

    I carry mine in a luke adams IWB holster. Now since its getting colder out and I have to wear a coat, I've found that my OWB holster can hide it just as well.

    Rocky at Pure Kustom Hosters makes a great holster for large frame Smiths. He made one for my 629 a few months back.
    Great workmanship and very comfortable!

    I carry 4-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame revolvers in either a Bucheimer Federal Man high-rise holster for OWB concealed carry, a Holsters Unlimited IWB holster from England, or a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster.

    A Smith & Wesson K-Frame revolver is a medium sized revolver.
