    For a concealed carry revolver that depends on if you prefer S&W J frames or Ruger LCRs.

    I prefer the 38 LCR. Great trigger, ergonomics and 13.5 oz unloaded.

    I had a 442 and it was so very nice to carry. Shooting it? Well, that was another story. I hated shooting it and I got rid of it. I did have, however, a S&W 686 snub that I foolishly traded. It was heavier and a little bulkier, but it was the best revolver I have had. It was concealable (with some effort) and with a good belt and holster, it was easy to carry. Someday, I will get one again - wood grip panels with finger grooves, great gun.

    My most often concealed carry revolver is my 4" S&W 29-2 .44 magnum.

    For my vote it would have to be any variation of the “ Chief Special”, steel or aluminum frame, special or magnum variations.

    They were purpose designed for the role, and are still a valid choice.

    442 pro gets my vote, but look out for the k6s. It hasn't been around all that long to be considered "best-ever" , but it's still a contender, mainly because of that 6th hole and that o so sweet trigger right out of the box.

    S&W model 19 3 inch, or SP101 3 inch.
    Both in 357 mag. Never leave home without one.

    I go back and forth between my KLCR .357 and 642. Often have carried both. Currently the KLCR is my love interest. The SP101 2.25 ain't no slouch either in my book !! But, if I could only have one, it'd be the KLCR .357.

    Detective Special of mine, and I must say I am jealous of some of the carry revolvers you guys have. I RARELY see a decent vintage totable Smith or Colt on the LGS shelves, and least a decent one that is not overpriced, IMO. Of course, if the market supports the high price, more power to the seller. A free market rules!

    Can't complain about that, my 640 is a great carry 357.

    As much as I liked the S&W Model 19, the Model 49 was my first love.

    For me, it depends...

    A 640 J frame is mighty tough to beat. I do favor the steel Js...

    But for a more serious all around carry revolver, I’d opt for one I’ve lusted after but never owned:

    A Smith 686+ 3”...

    Now THAT is something I could run. I guess I’m big enough I could carry it all day long.

    If only it was offered without the IL....
