    I'll join the Ruger crowd with an SP101 and a Gemini Custom package. Usually carry Hydra-Shok

    If I carry a round gun, it's one of these...

    Post My answer to your ?...

    P95Carry - I, like you, am more likely to go for a large Sig when the chance is given, or I have one of 'em handy. Normally though, I carry a "Strong Side Pocket Carry" semi auto like a LWS380, or a Rohr. R9s. On the few odd days that I grab for a "Wheelie", it was until recently, a "Custom Bobbed DA/ SA, S&W A.whgt. - 1 7/8" Mod. 37 w/ Standard Load .38 spc Hydro-Shoks." I recently changed that to a 2 1/8" S&W M60 .357 "J" frame RB, but still use the Standard .38's to carry. I just got tired of "knuckle bruising even w/ regular .38's", so I got a bit heavier pistola..!

    The 642 still sees occasional carry in an ankle rig or jacket pocket when the 1911 is just too big. I bought it because of the S&W dependability, light weight, variety of .38spl. loads available and ability to fire from inside the pocket if req'd.

    I'd still like to snag a Colt DSII, S&W 640, Ruger GP-100 and SP101 and/or a Charter Bulldog in .44spl. The Colt has that six round capacity and the others have a bit more "oomph!" Hard to beat a good wheelgun, everyone oughtta own one or seven .

    My most frequent revolver carry these days is a Taurus titanium 651 (Bodyguard style), followed by a stainless Taurus 650 (Centennial style), and then a Ruger SP-101 and finally a Model 60. Probably 80% of the time that I am carrying a revolver now, it is one of the two Taurus models. Before I got the Taurus revolvers in 2005, the Model 60 and SP-101 were my choices.

    When I do carry a wheelie, it is a S & W Mod 65 in .357Mag.

    I was a police trade in that I got as a gift about eight years ago. One of the best Christmas presents ever....

    I carry a S&W 442. Loaded with Federal's HS 110+p 38spl. This gun is lightweight, and fairly accurate at combat distances. I especially like it this time of year fishing in Rattler country.
    I'll be your Huckleberry!! I have two guns! One for each of you!

    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six!

    Don't carry one because of low cap and bulge...I do love them for the historic/romantic lure.

    Lightbulb My occasional "Wheelie", has changed from a "Bobbed" M37 A.Wght, to a Mod. 60

    I don't like "Battered Knuckle Syndrome"... Changing from my 1 7/8" S&W Airweight S&W Mod. 37, to my 2 1/8" S&W Mod. 60 has made a fine diff. for me. During the odd occasion that I do wear it, it's in a strong side clip on, (IWB) Piece-O-Retained-Leather. Practically don't notice the diff. in "Carried" weight. I still just use standard load .38 spc. "Hydro-shoks" in it too..!
    The only 2 major differences in my mind are that;
    (1) I can't "Strong Side Pocket Carry" the Mod. 60 w/o "Lookin' like John Holmes.." (Allot of "Swing.., or Shwing..?; I dunno...) (LOL!)
    (2) I'm much more "Comfy" w/ the Mod. 60..! That makes 1 minus, but 2 plus marks for me..!

    If I have to carry a wheel gun I would carry the S&W 65 .357 probably with 4in bbl loaded with Rem GS jhp.

    I have on duty had to carry them and got quite comfortable and proficient with it. If I had to be limited to 6rds this would be it.

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.
