AndyC; If you do carry the revolver and it receives a goodly amount of honest wear and then later ended up in a gun shop handgun case or on a gun show exhibitor's table, people like me would look lovingly at it, admiring it and scheming to try to acquire it.
It's the refinished or "Bubba'ed" guns that get passed over and not the good ol' faithful companion pieces.

You can make it work with the pockets you have, or get cargo pants/carhartts with more pockets. I carry a fixed blade neck knife, and another one on my belt at 1:00. Glock 19 (3:00), spare mag (9:00), and s&w 442 (11:00 left hand draw) also on my belt. Phone and wallet in back 2 pockets, o/c spray and speedloader in front right pocket, keys flashlight and lighter in front left pocket.
And I actually have a coat pocket full of about 20 rounds of 158g .38 special Hornaday from going out shooting last Sunday.
I may just stick with belt carry for now and stick with the glock. Pocket carry doesnít sound like itís for me
Bought my 1997 production Model 38 from a Texas police detective who said he carried it OWB in a pancake holster for a couple of years. I have no idea if it's rated for +P. , but have only shot a few rounds through it over the years.
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
