The 625 has since been NP3+'d, Florida carry is hard on the scandium.  The 49 is more of a BBQ gun. :blush:

This was a rescue gun that was made from an old Brazilian Model 1917 Smith & Wesson .45 that I picked up when I saw the description of it in an ad.  It sounded like the perfect carry piece.  The original barrel was replaced with an underlug barrel and an FDL Wondersight was put on it.  The whole gun was hard chromed and I put the Tyler T-Grip on it.  There was internal work done and the gun locks up like a bank vault.  I don't know who did the work, but the gun shoots like a dream.  I like to think that somebody took a gun with a shot out barrel and put it back into good use.  

 

I got the gun from a dealer up in Massachusetts.  Does anybody recognize the work?

A Charter Arms .38 snubby in the car (as well as a 1911 in .45), and a 5.5" SAA .45 on my belt except when I'm wearing a suit coat or sport jacket, then I have a Colt .380 Government Model (like a Mustang only a bit longer and a mite heavier.)

 

For years I carried a 5.5" SAA inside my waistband at work and no one ever noticesd or if they did they never said anything.

As much as I love revolvers, I almost never carry one. When I got my LTC I was gonna carry my S&W M19 snub. I figured out pretty quick it was too heavy and too thick for a fat boy to carry all the time. I currently carry a Glock 43, I love it because it's so flat and light. I have to be careful not to forget I have it on sometimes. My 19 now lives in my bug out bag. Probably what I would want if TSHTF, I keep a few rounds of different types of ammo.

My 2 cents,

JHC

OMG!  I forgot my sixties vintage Dick Special.  Six rounds of .38 Special and a two inch pipe.

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

Really wish Ruger hadn"t discontinued the Security Six.   Don"t like the GP100 they replaced it with...…      GW

I have three carry guns depending on what I'm wearing, and two of them are revolvers:

 

1) My primary is a custom-made 1911 on a Caspian frame and slide.  Yeah...maybe a little expensive for daily use but if my life depends on it, I want it to work.

 

2) S&W "air weight" .38 special; it fits in an ankle holster quite well.

 

3) S&W 686 5" barrel in .357 magnum

Not real concealable for a petite feller like me.

You need to work on that, Bob.

 

Why I remember when Bones was dressed as Wonder Woman

and was concealing a 4" S&W 500.

Hey Sloe Moe,    How do you like the 3 inch barrel on the Kimber?  That grip looks comfortable as well.  The 2 inch is sometimes stout with a 357 load.  Wonder how the 3 inch is?

Well, the 3" barrel is more manageable than the 2" with .357, but i don't like a 158 gr bullet in either. A 125 gr bullet is doable, but not comfortable...

Picked up another Smith & Wesson Model 10-6 yesterday.  4" heavy barrel.  Made in 1976.  After a little internal polishing, and some replacement springs, it'll go into the concealed carry rotation.

I must be the only one who carries a top break. Here's my usual carry pieces for ccw.

 

3rd model Iver Johnson 38s&w 2" snub nose

 

2nd model 1897 Iver Johnson 38s&w 4"

 

I load with 2gn trail boss and 145 gn rnfp and federal primers for the 3rd model and for the 2nd model I load the same bullet and fill the case to about 1/8 inch below the mouth with triple 7. The black powder load has way more kick and muzzle velocity!

 

The j frame speed loader works perfect for the 38 Smith.

On wheelgun days where discretion is an issue, I carry this '70s vintage Detective Special.

And when discretion isn't an issue, this Smith Model 25 in .45 Colt gets the nod.

Just retired my late father in law's S&W Air crewman made in 1953. I also have a S&W mod 37 that my Dad did the paperwork on in 1974.
