    For me pocket carry would be Sig 938, IWB Colt Defender in 9mm.

    If you wear Wranglers with those nice big deep pockets this works well for pocket carry, for less recoil I just load it with 44Spl.

    Someone else on the forum clued me in to those. As a "jeans wearing guy" for 90% of the time, I'm going to invest in some!

    Me too! I've been looking for a somewhat reasonably priced 3" M13 or M65 for a while.

    The J frame has been carried by more souls off duty, and in concealed situations than possibly any other weapon on the planet. To be perfect? It needs a 3" barrel and night sights.

    Iíve carried the S&W .38 bodyguard revolver for years, if itís not my main carry itís my back up for the pony. I do shoot the pony better. Prolly cause itís a bigger gun, would be my guess.

    I gotta go with the Ruger Speed Six in .357 and the Colt Detective Special 3rd generation in .38 special. I've owned both and sorely miss them both.

    S&W K frame snubby

    Assuming that you want to belt carry the revolver, I think the best choice is a S&W K frame in .357 magnum with a 2.5 or 3.0 inch barrel. It conceals easily behind the hip in a pancake holster, the gun is heavy enough to handle the recoil, and the double action and single action trigger pulls are perfect. My favorite two of this type are shown below, the stainless model 66 and the blued model 19:

    A lot of good answers and great pics in this thread. I think the best is a S&W 442 carried in the front pocket. If I ever find the 438 for sale, I may change my mind.

    Same for me. Have same gun, same holster. Have an Uncle Mike's inside pocket holster that is better fitting. The 442 is my "go anywhere gun" and is the one I keep in a lock box in the car so I can just drop it into a pocket when I'm out and about town. It's light enough to not feel like a hunk of steel, and curvy enough not to feel like a gun. Don't worry about mags or springs or unloading the one in the chamber... keep it loaded with HST Micro +P and 10 more on two Bianchi speed strips.
