I know it's a heavy gun. I just bought a 4" version. Still at the dealer waiting for backround check to complete.
I would love to carry it sometimes, wondering if anybody does that. Concealed, that is.

Thanks.

I'm assuming you're refering to a S&W m-64. Wouldn't be my first choice, but if it's what you prefer, why not?

I don't own a Model 64 or Model 10 but I do sometimes carry other K Frame revolvers, (M 19 and M 15). Dress around your Model 64 and use a good holster and belt combo and you won't have a problem. I like to use a FIST #12 holster and a Beltman belt along with a pair of Perry suspenders for revolvers of that size and weight. I don't find a 4" K Frame S&W difficult to carry or conceal. I'm 5'9" and weigh about 165#.

People conceal mouse guns and cannons, anything is possible if you 'dress for the weather'...:rolleyes:

For an excellent holster, shop here...

An S&W Model 64 is not a heavy gun. If I can CC a larger, heavier 4" S&W N-frame or 4" Ruger GP100 on a 31" waist, you can CC your K-frame. I CC'ed a Model 19 and Model 66, both 4" K-frames, like your 64, in a Sparks 200AW or a now-discontinued Eagle Industries IWB rig. I also did, and sometimes still do, CC a 4" Ruger Speed Six in a Milt Sparks PMK holster; a Speed Six is a very near-twin of a Model 64.

These days, I usually CC the same P229 pistols I use for police duty, so the Speed Six is getting a break, but when I no longer have to tote a .40 autoloader at work, I will go back to using the Speed Six, at least some of the time; all-day comfort, especially in that Sparks PMK, and fairly easy to conceal.

Close to it, my cold weather daily carry is a S&W 686+, weighs the same as your 64 but holds 7 rounds of 357 Magnum flavor.
For some people the weight is objectionable, but it doesn't both me at all.
With a quality holster and the right clothing you should have no trouble carrying the 64.
At 5'4" and 125 pounds as long as my shirt is long enough I don't have any problems with hiding it, under the clothing I normally wear(jeans & sweatshirts).
If you like carry it, and remember a Smith & Wesson beats 4 aces anytime:smile:

One of my bedstand guns is an M64... factory DAO, 2" barrel. Got it used from an on-line auction and it feels like it's had a trigger job. Sweet gun, often carried around the house (I'll get a holster one of these days) in a back pocket. Looks like the pic below except it now wears smooth Secret Service grips by Eagle.

You don't have to be fat to appreciate suspenders. Nothing better than Perry Industrials for load bearing equipment.

I don't conceal a Model 64, but I have been known to carry various 4" N-Frames in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II.

I have a couple Desantis holsters that conceal well and are very comfortable with my 3" or 4" K frames. They are reasonably priced.
