    I love a good revolver! Some of these see rotation through my edc and some of them have traveled many miles with me. Solid pieces one and all. I have found the J-frame size revolver works best for me as a carry gun either in an IWB holster or a good ankle holster depending on footwear.

    Smiths, Rugers and a Colt?
    It is like having a Chevy, Ford and Dodge in the driveway...

    Nice collection. When you say J-Frame, is that your primary go to over the LCR?

    The LCR I have is a .22LR. I just enjoy it around the yard. Yes The J-frame size which covers Rossi and Taurus models too. There are two K-frames in the picture, an S&W Model 10 and a Ruger Speed Six which is K-frame size(six shooters). They are packable just not as small.

    So far I have only Ruger Snubbies myself.

    SP101 & LCR 38sp and they are both great!

    My J frame rocks! My 638 gets carried quite a bit, probably about 25% of the time. It's also the gun I shoot the most often. No matter what else I'm shooting that day the snubbie gets some practice too.

    My next wheel gun is going to be a Model 60 Pro if I can find one.

    I had an SP101 for awhile; it was WAY too heavy for what it was, even when firing full House .357s in it. I’ll take an Airweight any day!

    Not a fan of revolvers for carry anymore. But I do have a SW 337 (Air Weight Ti) that did go a lot of places with me. Also picked up a Colt Cobra a few years ago for the heck of it. So I have a couple.

    The 337 is unbelievably light weight. So easy to carry, it was hard not to.

    I love snubs and would own a bunch if $ were less of an issue. I love the 2" barrels but a 3" is less of a snub but still a snub to me. I'm skinny enough that my 357 snub fits perfect in the front right appendix area in virtually anything I wear. I feel very confident and protected with it even though a mouse 380 is more likely to be on me.

    please no stones... I have a SW442 and Charter .44, but as a 35+ year USPSA competitor with auto loaders, just shoot one better at distance than my wheel guns...my perception of threat is the need for an 18yd 6x6 shot... I can't do it on demand with my short sight radius revolvers... a whole lot easier with an auto loading pistol with better trigger... my G43 is scary accurate at that distance... YMMV

    I'm exactly the same. Last time at the range I put almost 100 rounds through the LCR at 7, 10, and 15 yards. My accuracy at 7 was not bad but it fell off quick. I picked up the G43 and the first shot was right on at 15. I still prefer the LCR for a fishing gun or drop in the pocket. The trigger is nice but not so much compared to a 50 year old model 36.

    Not my only snubs, but a couple of my favorites. S&W M36 and a 22/32 Kit Gun.

    My 637 is not pictured. It gets carried when I don't feel like carrying my LCP or Shield.

    Double mini snubs. Over 3 decades carry. Saved my butt three times just by being there.
