    Taurus snubbie

    Whats the best way to carry a revolver? I've heard mexican style with a revolver is generally not as much of a concern as it would be with a pistol. Ideas for carry, for both me and my wife?

    A holster works pretty good.

    3:00 or 4:00 position.

    Mexican Carry = NO-NO...OMO (in my rule book)
    Holster carry only...even if in a pocket!

    During the summer (with cargo shorts on) I perfer to carry my j frame in a Mika pocket holster.

    Other times IWB with a High Noon Hideaway at appendix.

    My better half has begun to carry crossdraw. She says it feels right that way.

    Carry my Taurus 617 in a smartcarry all summer. Works well for me. My wife purse carries her bulldog but we are looking at a better option for on body carry for her.

    Desantis Nemesis in the front pocket. CTAC IWB. Both work well with snubbies.

    While "Mexican carry" with any gun is a bad idea....I think it worse with the revolver for the simple reason that if and/or when the gun's cylinder makes it past the belt/belt line....gravity will take over since the majority of the gun's weight is concentrated on the cylinder.

    As others have stated...get a good pocket holster, like this one from HBE Leatherworks (with my Taurus 905 9mm):



    ...or get a good IWB/OWB belt holster, or even a Smart Carry holster.

    My G/F prefers cross-draw with her J-frame. Seems to fit the female shape better. I've always felt cross-draw was dangerous, very easy to be disarmed.

    Barami Hip Grips are an acceptable way to carry a revo IWB without a holster.

    Pocket carry with either Mikas or Desantis Nemesis.

    I wouldn't use Mexican carry unless there were no alternative, in an emergency of some kind. When I carry my Detective Special, it's in a Bianchi Model 100, inside the waistband.

    Not for me, Thanks.

    I wouldn't carry my wallet stuck in my waist (for fear of dropping/losing it!). I'm SURELY not going to carry a handgun that way! PLEASE wrap that rascal in a holster (IWB, OWB, bellyband, pocket, whatever). Friends don't let friends Mexican Carry.
