    CC revolver?

    never really had much experience with a revolver and wanted to know what would be good to carry. There's no way i'm gonna carry it before i get used to it. right now i carry a glock 23, and i love it, but sometimes it seems like too much. looking for something smaller. any ideas?

    Everyone loves their J-Frame Smiths. Like a 442 or a 642. You can get either shrouded or enclosed hammer. If your don't mind having a hammer, check out the Ruger sp101. Tauras makes the same guns as Smith (exact design) so check them out. Another one would be Charter Arms.

    I've got a 2 1/2" Smith & Wesson Model 66 .357 I use for either concealed carry or open carry. I really like it. I have considered a J-frame Smith just fo concealed carry only or for a BUG. I use the Model 66 for a BUG when I'm packing my 4" Model 28 Highway Patrolman. I conceal the 4" with a shoulder holster and sometimes an IWB, but I'm getting too fat for the IWB.

    Get a S&W M-36 or any of the J-frames that weight about 20oz. A Don hume belt slider and after about 5 mintues you will not know it's there. Keep practising between 7 and 20 feet till you can drill it in the 9 ring. You'll be good to go then. Good luck.

    638

    dlsalva: much has been written about the J frames and it's true.
    My carrying includes GP100 G17, G22 and SW638. I shoot Single actions for hunting and fun. A 638 will do single action or double. Goofing around at 100yds can and will give surprising results

    Post Snubby Revolvers

    I just acquired a Charter Arms Bulldog .44 special. It is a pretty good
    revolver. I owned one in the early 70's. It was a very good gun. It is one
    that I wish I hadn't sold.

    Anyway, if you are looking for a revolver for CCW use, consider the
    Bulldog. The .44 special cartridge is a very good caliber for CCW.

    I have a S&W 642 and a Ruger sp-101. Of the two I prefer the ruger. The heavier sp-101 gives you less recoil. If you do get a S&W 642 get some different grips right away the originals are way small.

    I like my S&W 442. Fits right in my fanny pack. I tried my Glock 23 CC once so far. Feels more secure knowing I have 13+1 rds instead of 5. But the 442 is SO EASY to carry!

    My revolver is a Charter Arms Bulldog Pug 44spcl. I traded a S&W .38 J frame for it. I wanted a larger caliber. Great gun!!

    Sure wish I could find one myself. I have had several but let them go in trades and sold them. You don't see them at shows on the trading tables. The .38+P and the .44spl are my favorite cartridges.

    I bought an old S&W Model 36 for my first carry gun. I was worried it'd be too heavy on an ankle holster, but I'm totally used to it by now.
    I use an Uncle Mike's ankle holster.

    Smile Bulldog Pug

    Baldy, I don't know which distributor my dealer uses, but he was able to
    get one is just a few days. So, check with your favorite dealer.

    Also, I've seen them on-line at Buds Guns and on GunBroker.com.

    I did see one at a gunshow in Las Cruces, NM last month. So they are out
    there.

    I think my stainless is going to be a real good reliable carry
    weapon.

    Good luck finding yours!
