    My EDC is an LCR .357. I carried a Speed Six exactly like the one in the first photo, for many years.

    Been trying to go more minimalist and be comfortable with less. It’s been a challenge going from a G17 or G23 down to an LCP. I guess my generation has been groomed to expect an army of terrorists or zombies around every corner. Do you ever feel under gunned with .22 minis Jack ?

    Nice! I only have 2 snubs; a Performance Center 642 and a Dan Wesson Model 14 with a 2 1/2" inch barrel. The DW is a tank and mostly does range work. The little 642 finds occasional pocket time. Enjoy!

    Hats off for the man who carries 1911s and wheel guns!
    Really nice collection!

    Regarding you holster: are you a lefty or is it for 6 o’clock carry? If south paw, I’d be interested on how you do your speed reloads

    My buddy Allen Rieckhof of Backup Holsters built this beautiful holster for me. I have several as well as mag holders. Allen does excellent work. You can reach him at: ALLENR@BACKUPHOLSTERS.COM

    Allen made me this fine holster for my Shield with metal belt clip. Inside concealed carry.

    I am right handed. I carry my Mdl 60 inside on my right rear hip. Per speed loader, I will pocket carry a HDS speed loader occasionally.

    Thanks. My reason for asking was that as south paw myself I’m yet to master smooth and fast wheel gun reloads for IPSC. Frankly, it seems that I’ll never get it right to sufficient level, too much time will always be spent

    My only snubby currently is a S.S. pre-lock S&W 640 in .357 Mag. I don't carry it very often but it is one of the prettier guns I own.

    I love the Stag grips. Very throwback classic.

    As I was reviewing the snubby pics of a Model 60 and 642, tHey have the subtle polishing and patina of looks of carry/practice. Impressive pieces.

    Hope this isn’t a thread-jack but I picked up a new snubby and I’m looking for some feedback. I own a couple other pistols (G23 .40 and HK .45) but this is my first revolver. I purchased it to take backpacking mainly because of weight concerns. I realize I’m trading firepower for size/weight but so be it.

    I put the first rounds through it recently and :censored:, this puppy kicks. I knew it would given how light it is but, wow. The cylinder release took the skin off my right thumb knuckle (I’m RH) after a couple of rounds. I bled all over the gun and I still can’t get all the died blood out of the S&W logo...:D

    I was using White Box 125 grain .38+P. I was planning to carry with Federal Hydra-Shok 129 grain +P but are there better loads for this little pistol?

    I know snubbies take some getting used to and I’m going to stick with it. Snub Love Club FTW.
