    I haven't shot a revolver I like better than my Colt Python. However, I carry a Walther PPS 9mm b/c there is no way I could conceal the Python.

    The only revolver I have is a Uberti SAA clone in .45 Colt. It shoots great and I can hit what I'm going for with it.

    Hello. While I do enjoy some semiautos a great deal to be sure, I have always had an equal fondness for revolvers. (Heck! I guess my "disease" is very severe; I like 'em all!)

    I have but one .41 magnum at the time. It is a refinished Model 58 that I bought used but in good shape a few years ago.

    [​IMG]
    This is my Model 58. It is wearing long-discontinued Fitz "Gunfighter" grips. Though I've wagged this one along with me on several deer hunts, the only game I've taken with it was the deadly "Texas Man-Eating Armadillo."

    Though I have rarely carried it for self-protection, it has not been often, primarily due to a lack of factory ammunition in both the bullet weight and velocity I'd like to see for self defense use.

    I am most fond of the design and wish that S&W would bring back the Model 58 in .41 Magnum, .44 Special, .44 Magnum and .45 Colt. Though the gun didn't sell that well before, I really think that it would now. I'd hope that it came w/o the built-in storage lock.

    The revolver that I carry the most is a well-worn S&W Model 642 and it's usually toted via a pocket holster. Around the house, it might very well be the primary as it might in the immediate neighborhood.

    [​IMG]
    This Model 642 is toted pretty much daily (and nightly) in either a Galco or High Noon pocket holster. It is loaded with Remington 158-gr. LHP +P. The grips are the inexpensive Precision "HideOut" grips and I modified the left-side panel to work with HKS speed loaders.

    When toting a smallish belt revolver, the S&W becomes the BUG.

    [​IMG]
    In certain instances, I've carried the Ruger .357 SP101 concealed but in a belt holster while retaining the 642 in a pocket holster. The Ruger is loaded with a mid-power load, Corbon 125-gr. DPX. The HKS speed loader that fits the S&W J-frame will also work with the SP101, so I can carry a reload (albeit .38 Special) without concern for which revolver it fits.

    Now and again, I carry a K-frame DAO S&W Model 64, also with the Remington load previously mentioned.

    [​IMG]
    This Model 64 was purchased used but in good mechanical shape, though with a few minor dings. Once I shot it a few times, seeing that it worked properly and that the sights were "on", I've carried it concealed a few times and use also use it as a "house gun".

    Best.

    While I carry a self loading pistol as primary duty and off duty, I love the older revolvers, particulary S&W.
