    Wow! - great response everyone and thanks - gives an excellent ''feel'' for folk's logistics etc.

    Frank - thanks for responding to my dig - it is good to know what people regard as their reason for the choice.

    My son carries a 637 and likes it - may be one day I'll get a lighter snub than the SP - seems well useful to have in the choice stakes.

    I usually cary my nickel plated S&W model 38 in a pocket holster. Sometimes I'll also cary a S&W model 442 in my rear pocket. Just for the heck of it I added a S&W 431 on the ankle today. Working part time at the gun shop and range, I am around people with guns, large sums of cash and I was working alone today.

    I must be getting paranoid as I get older. Am I being a kook?

    My "everyday" CCW is a S&W M640 Centennial, loaded with Speer Gold Dot SB .38+P. When cooler weather allows, I occassionally substitute my M65 3" with .357 Gold Dot 125 gr. Another I'm waiting to try (after a timing job to be done) is my M686 2.5" with the same load.

    I'm not a wheelie prude, they just work with my lifestyle. If something works, each time and just the way I expect/demand, I see no reason to change.

    On the other hand, my S&Ws increase in value each year. How much them plastic bottom feeders gonna be worth in 30 years? (Hope I didn't start nothin' with that remark! )

    My .45 Peacemaker

    Granted I have to wear a longer coat, but out here you can get away with a hat and a duster year round.

    Then I still carry a couple of BUGS, but I can out draw with my Peacemaker compared to my other carry weapons. I guess that's what you get when your a hick

    Taurus 85 Ultra-Lite in stainless. It's compact, and light enough for pocket carry. I've also got it outfitted with Barami "Hip-grips" so it can be carried in the waistband w/o a holster. When I carry it as a BUG, I don't carry any reloads. When I carry it as a primary, I carry a couple of Bianchi "speed-strips."

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Im an auto guy through and through but I did pick up a charter arms bulldog .44 special a while back. I liked the light weight, small package along with the big bore smack it delivers. Its also good for an impressive fire show at dusk! That thing is definately a flame thrower.

    True that, If the lead misses one could probably get some nasty burns from that. I remember when I was younger I made the mistake of resting my dads .357 on my arm to steady it. Needless to say but more flames than you think come out around that cylinder. Only took once to learn that lesson!

    I carry my SW 638 in either the Mika pocket holster or the Hume 715SMOOT IWB, using Federal 135 Hydra-Shoks. Easier to carry than the SA XD40.

    preferred carry in revolver is taurus 85 ultralite .38 due to weight.
    Secondary only due to weight is my Ruger sp101 .357/.38

    I loved shooting my SP-101, but I love carrying a 642.

    In the few short months I've had a 642 I have come to depend so greatly on it's versatility and ease of carry that I can't see ever being without one. It is also fun to shoot, in it's own way, as it is quite accurate for its diminuative size.
