    Anyone ever carry 6"?

    I was thinking about getting another SV but in 6", just wondering if anyone ever carries them. I'm only 5'9" 155 lbs and I hide my 5" pretty good even with the HUGE SV magwell, and the 6" is the same grip length just an inch longer sticking into my pants...don't see a huge problem besides possibly draw time. Not saying I would carry it all the time, thats what the 5" is for, just wondering if anyone ever does.

    I have at times carried a 6" Model 19 S&W. With the right vest or shirt as cover, it's hardly more difficult to conceal than a 4". The problem I have with carrying my 6" revolver is the slower presentation time required to clear leather with that extra barrel length.

    That's what I was thinking wm. When I was taught my draw, I pull up vertical about 3" past the top of the holster before beginning to tilt to present though, so I guess we will see. I'm going to try and find someone at the range that will let me try theirs as long as they have a holster similar to mine. Thanks for the input!
