My wife carries a .38 Taurus. I carry my Bond with two .357 Black Talons in the pipes.

Rossi 720c (that's the DAO fixed sight version)- 5 shots of .44 Special and a couple or 3 speedloaders are with me about every day.

A little heavy, but 2 3/4 in Ruger Security Six in 357 Mag pretty much lives with me when I am out of the house.    GW

I have the stainless, non-ported model for when my Para just isn't appropriate.

Everyday carry. Sometimes other stuff too, but always these.1010120283_EverydayCarry.jpg.eb51048ca3fba3367fdf9e2e06006e30.jpg

When I lived in Oregon I carried my S&W 442 up until I got this little Remington RM380. I started carrying the Remington but after a while I went back to the 442. I trust it wholeheartedly. I trust the Remington, not wholeheartedly, though. The Remington was more of a backup.

 

In California the 442 will still go with me but not CCW. Not until I get a permit anyway.

 

I got my 442 as a birthday present in 1997.

And by the way, Rye. I do use that Sticky holster you gave me as a pocket holster. Thank you again for that. :)

I got a friend who has managed to carry a revolver most of his adult life and also

a side business of being a Gigalo.

 

His wife knows about his Gigalo business, but he's afraid she'll leave him if she finds out he carries a revolver... :o

 

(Sorri fellers, I had to say it.  After all, it is the Saloon)..... :lol:

Sometimes in the summer, I'll carry my S&W 340SC with CT, LASER grip and 2 reloads.

Mostly these days, it's my S&W 9mm Shield because it's so flat and easy to hide.

Pair of 1851 Colt Navies. I clean n' reload them every morning.

 

 

;)

 

Seriously, I don't think I've ever EDC'd a revolver. Not that I don't like 'em, but they must not like me as I can't shoot them worth a darn.

She actually found out the other day that I usually only carry revolvers anymore. She said she was fine with it as long as I keep bringing in the dough! 

As for the OP, it depends on the day. I switch between a s&w 329 ultralight 44mag, s&w 686 plus 357, s&w 19 357, and a kimber 357. I carry one of my single action rugers on a match day. I usually also have my bond 357 on me too. I open carry instead of conceal.

A S&W model 36 with a Tyler T grip.  Even with the short barrel it is very easy to put rounds on a target at 5-7 yards.  Bought it when I broke my right arm and couldn't handle my .45's left handed.  Carry the Smith much more than the 1911's now.

During colder months I generally carry a Colt Commander, but when it's hot I will sometimes switch to my S&W Model 37.

Same here. I think they're cool, but I can't trust me with one in a life-threatening situation

Plus, I'm a skinny guy preferring inside the waistband holster and is how I settled on a Glock 43.

I alternate a Ruger SP101 38 spl with an M&P 9mm, depending on what I feel like carrying on a particular day.  :ph34r:

.44 S & W Special snubbie in an Idaho Leather holster and 2 Uncle Mike reloads in a belt pouch. I even carried a S&W .44 Rem Magnum in the jungle along with my personal 1911A1. My revolvers never jam.:rolleyes:

After having finally handled a few of the large frame Ruger 357 magnum double actions I have to think that 7 or 8 rounds of 357 magnum in states where exist magazine capacity bans of 7 or 10 rounds would not be a bad choice. I don't believe there was ever a debate about the effectiveness of the 357 magnum round in law enforcement usage, only that the 6 round revolver was outgunned by magazine capacity firepower of 15 to 20 rounds from the wondernines. 

 

 Probably not practical to try to carry a large frame revolver concealed all year long for some people but it is certainly a possibility for others.

 

Something like this one.

One of these for each of us (individually) are EDC. But for a recent trip to Chicago, we carried double. From the top, I carried the Glock 19 and the Model 60. Shortcake had her Glock 42 and her North American Arms 22.
