    highlifee, welcome from North Carolina. 66 with a 4" barrel certainly isn't to large for CC. Many carry a 1911 with a 5" barrel. Just make sure to get a good holster and belt.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!

    Carrying a 4" revolver that weigh around 38 oz. is certainly possible...have a good holster and a good belt.

    A with the right holster, belt and carry method, it is certainly possible.
    Alot of it depends on your frame, size, and the way you dress as well.
    And welcome from Texas!

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
