    Just curious how many carry a snubby and which kind? I've been looking at the M&P Model 360, LCR and other smith and Wesson's. Any kind of input would be great.

    I now carry a 2inch 5 shot 45acp/45lc Taurus 450 with a crimson trace laser grip, I feel really comfortable with it and love the moonclip conversion on it.

    I carry a colt detective special quite often.6 shots of hpxtps and one of the nicest triggers I have on any gun.3rd gen I think with a shroud but not the vent rib barrel like a python.I have a small private range close to me and have shot many rounds through this gun.I can generally hit a 6" peice of steel at 35yrds with either hand 5 out of 6 times.At 25 yrds I can do it 6 out of 6 most of the time...I love my snubnose...Robin

    I carry either a 2.5" S&W Mod.19, in a Galco Speedmaster holster, or a 2" Mod. 36, in the same style holster.

    After carrying a stainless Colt Combat Commander for several years I switched to a 3" S&W M60 .357 about ten years ago. I much prefer the M60 for daily carry.

    Thx for all the replies. Lately I've been really looking into a snubby for carry and these give me a lot of ideas.

    okay i'll be the odd duck. i carry a taurus 85 stainless bobbed hammer (20 some odd ounces) with an uncle mikes? overmold grip(big/wide grip). carry appendix in a cheap'o uncle mikes iwb holster. I've tried a bunch of other gun/holster combos and i'll be danged if it isn't the most comfortable. i do get a new holster roughly once every 6 months though
