    Anyone OC a revolver at all?

    If so, what caliber/model/rig etc.

    thanks...just curious because I hear so much talk about semi-autos when people OC besides guards etc. who are required to carry a wheelgun due to company policy.

    Smith 340sc with .38 +p's. Don't like the .357s in that light a package!!:shock:

    I carry in either a Bob Mernickle or a Wild Bill's OWB rig, either of which I highly recommend.



    Love my wheelies!

    S&W 327 TRR8
    S&W 625

    Occasionally a J-Frame...well, it's technically openly carried.

    Yes, mostly a 2 1/2" S.&W. Mod. 66 in an Uncle Mike's paddle crossdraw or an S.&W. Mod. 28 Highway Patrolman the same way or an S.&W. Model of 1917 (made in 1918) in a flap holster or an Uncle Mike's vertical shoulder rig. Sometimes I carry the Mod. 66 in a shoulder rig as well & sometimes it's in an IWB outside of my trousers & behind my belt.On rare occaisions, I'll Mexican carry a 6" Colt Army Special .32-20. It's been a long time since I packed a self-shucker.

    Ruger SP101 2" "hammerless" in a Ross holster. The short profile of the snubby, plus the way the holster attaches to the belt (belt slot across the back of the holster) means that the entire thing rides pretty high, and works well as a CC holster too as long as I can wear a jacket or a long shirt untucked.

    I do!



    I carry my Taurus 617 7 shot, .357 Magnum Snubby.



    I carry it in aBianchi Model X16L Shoulder holster. It works very well during the winter as it is very comfortable and if I am wearing a coat it, I can just reach in for my gun and not have to sweep my coat out of the way.

    Depending on the weather and style of clothing I may carry either a G26 or a S&W .357 revolver.

    I've NEVER had an unpleaseant experience with the Glock, but the revolver has resulted in a few hassles. The revolver, being all bright and shiny is easier to spot than the 'evil black' Glock.

    I think more folks assume you are a LEO when you carry a black semi-auto.

    I have a friend who cut down a Remington style .44 cap & ball revolver to 4" for a carry gun. He doesn't OC but he uses it to CC. I borrowed it for a couple months & lent him an old Smith & Wesson M & P 5" nickel plate while I had his gun. I liked it. When I have the $ to spend, I'll be acquiring a pair of stainless steel Remington style .44 cap & ball revolvers to cut down to 4" for my own self. Sometimes I just like the smell of sulphur without having to eat eggs & drink beer.

    I've been considering getting one of those cheap .44 cap & ball revolvers sometime just for fun when I make it to the outdoor ranges just because it'd be different than everything else I already have. I've just never gotten one because I've always had something else higher on "the list"

    The Remington is good because they do have a conversion kit so you can fire metallic cartridges from it. They converted many of the after the war. This way you can fire them both was as a cap and ball and use metallic cartridges.

    The colt walker is the real bad @$$. It is a big weapon 5 lbs. Was called a horse pistol because you had pummel holsters to carry them. A trooper would carry 2 of the. I have included a photo of theholster.

    "Man, I hate this holster. It just beats you up carrying it."

    "What's wrong with it?"

    "Well, nothing and I should have expected it being it is a pummel holster."

    :P

    Fun with typos
    :celebrate

    Seriously though, I was not aware of the conversion ability of the Remington. If I decide to acquire an historic pistol in the future I will certainly be picking your brain for info.

    The colt walkers would be a pain to get on and off a horse with. My horse is 16 hands it is bad enough with the colt army.
