    An eight inch 44 Smith and Wesson magnum!:D

    Heck I don't know, how about a S&W model #642 Airweight?

    Sorry moviespdx, lost my head! I carried a 642 in a JIT Slide Don Hume holster, never knew it was there.

    BTW: Welcome to the forum.:)

    Most concealable but still reasonable is a hammerless J-frame or Ruger LCR. Disappears in the pocket.

    Welcome to the board, Moviespdx.

    The answer is "it depends". It could range from "there is no such thing" to "any revolver". Fill us in a little on the details of: for whom (sex, age, experience level, height and weight), in what general circumstances, wearing what kind of clothing, in what calibers, and anything else that might help people answer your "eternal question". This morning (and most mornings since the weather cooled) I carried a Ruger Super Blackhawk with a 4 5/8 inch barrel on my walk with the dog. If I go into town this afternoon I will probably not carry that firearm. When the weather warms up and I am wearing lighter cover garments I'll switch to something smaller. It all depends on where I am going, what I am wearing, what I am doing, and how deeply concealed it needs to be. I'm sure you'll get a lot of helpful suggestions once you narrow down a few details so people can better understand the circumstances and needs you are facing.

    Again, welcome to the board!

    That appears to be a Steyr M series, not an LCR.

    Oh hey there, didn't know you were on this forum as well. There was someone asking about the holster you made me in another thread.

    Love that gun, btw. The picture doesn't do it justice.

    the picture i posted was a joke about the police not being able to protect you as well as you can yourself. mabye i should've started a new post but i thought i might as well tack it on my post here as a joke. sorry you did not get it.

    I've carried a North American Arms 5-shot .22 magnum in my shirt pocket every day for about 14 years.

    I have carried many different pistols over the years, My preferrence is the 642 smith. its lightweight and no snag design are nice. I carry in a Maverick deep concealment iwb holster I got through Dillon Precision in summer time and form fitted leather by Black hawk when the hotter weather goes away. Extra rounds are kept in bianchi speed strip, not the fastest in a reload condition, but so far I have never had too reload during a crisis.

    I really like my Taurus 905 in 9mm with the CT grip.

    I have the same gun & it's probably one of my favorites (in general). However, for concealed carry, I prefer my S&W 642.

    this would be ideal........ but a Taurus mod 85 ultralight with Barami grips works for me in revolvers.
