Snubnose Revolvers: Tried-and-True for Concealed-Carry Use

    I agree. If you’re not carrying a spare mag with a semi auto you’re doing it wrong, but a revolver for “oh shit, I forgot the milk” makes a lot more sense.

    Last summer, I picked up a Smith and Wesson 637 snubbie in .38 Special. It’s become my summer carry pistol because it’s nicely compact and aint a anchor as far as weight goes plus it doesn’t print when wearing a long t-shirt.
    It aint a pistol that one would use in a marksmanship competition, but it’s accurate enough at ranges out to 50 feet, and that’s good enough for self defense.

    It’s a good choice; good power (in .38 or .357), it’s ready as soon as you draw it, and because of the double-action trigger, little likelihood of an AD while re-holstering or from random carry.

    S&W 442 38spl. I carry it in my 5.11 front shirt pocket during summer months. Can’t even tell it’s there. And a speed strip in pants/shorts pocket.

    I carry a S &W 60 in a sticky pocket holster all the time. It is well concealed in jeans. I load 180 gr hard lead .357 around the homestead as bears sometimes show up. Hollow points when I go to the city. Speed strip in shirt pocket.

    I couldn’t recommend the Ruger LCR more. They’re cheap, look light and the polymer frame dampens recoil as if the whole gun was steel.

    A Scandium Smith. 357 is punishing (more than a .500 magnum imho) but I can shoot. 357s through my LCR without much trouble.

    I have to echo Beard. My Ruger LCR .357 is great for those times I have to grab something for a quick trip. It is in a pocket holster, so it goes in one pocket and a couple speed strips go in the other pocket. I like it a lot. It handles well, but save the .357 ammo for SD use. It can be a bear for practice. Still handles well, but rough on the hand.
