    Hello!

    Hi all,
    I'm new to the forum and relatively new to the gun world. My husband and I are in the process of getting our concealed carry permits and our first hand guns. He has much more experience than I, but I'm enjoying learning about the different options. I'm most interested in revolvers, and how to conceal carry gracefully as a woman. The top two on my list are the Smith and Wesson Model 60 (.357, 3" barrel) and the Ruger sp 101 (model 5719).

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Caroline

    Welcome from NC! Both of those revolvers are fine guns.

    Hi Caroline. You and your husband have found the right forum. The people here are universally helpful, patient and will offer suggestions on firearms, ammunition, training and generally nice things to know. Welcome from the City that Care Forgot.

    Oh yes, never listen to anything gatorbait51 says. He is only good for bad jokes and bragging about his Taco Shooters . He is best left caged in the bayou.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Although I'm a semi-auto pistol man I know that if you squeeze the trigger on a revolver it always ges bang. (At least it always did when I had them way back when).

    Welcome from Virginia. Nice choice on weapons. You might want to browse this thread for some ideas on female carry.

    Welcome from S. FL. Make sure a .357 is what you really want. It can be a handful.
