I like hammerless revolvers. Check out the 38 snub by S&W

Ive thought about a DAO, but in the end i feel like id prefer a sa/da. I really dont think an external hammer snagging would be an issue, and i carry sa/da revolvers open carry all the time in the woods, and im very comfortable with them. This one seems like it would be the ticket. Super light, hi vis front sight, rated for full house .357.

That's an expensive revolver. Looks like a nice piece. But you know...the best carry gun is the one that you're comfortable carrying. So, if YOU like it you have my blessing.

Try shooting one first, the double action only on a snubby isn't for everyone. That said, I carry a Kimber k6s it is a fantastic revolver that has an amazing trigger. Shooting 38spcl through it is enjoyable and accurate .357 feels like an untamed beast. If you are a confident and precise shooter who is willing to practice to get good with double action, that the revolver is an excellent choice.

I dont think shooting .357 in one would bother me. I shoot .44 mags and s&w .460s. Im accustomed to powerful handguns. And as far as practice, i dont have to go to a range. I can shoot right in my own back yard.

I think the issue is .357 in a snubbie. It's definitely doable but it takes more skill and practice to control. I feel like a full-frame .44 is easier to shoot than a snubbie .357.

I envy the freedom you have to shoot in your backyard. That's my dream.

I was actually considering the k6scdp when i was thinking about going DAO. the 6rnd cylinder is a nice thing. But i wouldnt want to buy one without at least getting my hands on one first to check it out, especially since kimber is new to revolvers, and ive never seen one on a shelf. Id feel a lot better about ordering a s&w sight unseen, as i have several smith revolvers. Its a kind of a known quantity to me, if that makes sense.

MY k6s has been through 500rounds no problem. I also have a j frame S&W the Kimber is superior in every way. I am not a Kimber fanboy, but this is the best product I think they make.

I just took my test using a Colt detective special, the equivalent of a Colt cobra, it was very very nice, that's what I'm looking to get for cc.

It is ordered, and on the way. Ill have it in a few days. Joy is me. All kinds of ammo coming too, and some sexy laminate grips.

I have an lcr ruger. Not a huge fan. Hard to find a good and slim holster for it. They are all WAY too bulky to carry without a jacket and in the south, that's not happening. The snub nose greatly reduces accuracy compared to a regular gun. And I've noticed I actually don't like not having a safety. I highly doubt I will ever be in a situation where I'm so panicked that I forget to instinctively flip the safety while grabbing the weapon. I'm probably going to get a fanny pack designed for conceal carry and try that. I'm still 50/50 on it for my daily carry.

I have the 340pd , which is the hammerless version, and I love it. So lightweight that you can carry it any way you want and forget that it's there.

Do you feel like the rubber grips might not be the best choice for cc? Seems like some smooth or stippled wood grips might be better, like a shirt wouldnt hang up on wood like it might rubber? There are plenty of aftermarket wood j frame grips to choose from. And do you shoot .357 or .38 through it?

In practice, drawing with the rubber grip is not an issue, and I think I'd prefer it over a wood grip.

I shoot .38 out of it, there really isn't enough gun there to shoot .357 reliably.

I've been carrying a Model 60 for concealed carry and it works well. The important differences would be 1) the front sight, which is just a standard ramp, and 2) the weight, which is fully twice as heavy as the 360.

I've been doing pocket carry and it's working very well. I've done two main modifications.

First, I have an Ergo Delta grip which makes the gun point better and tames the recoil. Shooting .357 magnum in an 11 oz gun will not be fun or easy. Your followup shots will take longer than if you used .38 spc and had a heavier gun.

The other big modification is I bobbed the hammer. The gun slips out of my pocket very easily. This raises the question, why not just get a Centennial with internal hammer and get a higher grip?

I wanted a model with a hammer because I put my thumb on the hammer as I slip it into my pocket. It's an extra safety measure against shooting myself. You can't do this with an internal hammer or striker-fired weapon.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I'd like to hear more about pocket carry. Do you really feel like that's safe? I'm not saying it isn't, just seems sketchy to me. Would definitely be more convenient for me.

Always use a holster and never have anything but the gun and holster in that pocket.

Check out the system I use.

Got a cheap kydex trigger guard holster on Amazon and added a bunch of velcro and sheet metal. That trigger is totally covered, but the holster snags really well on the way out.

There are also some lovely leather holsters for pocket carry... I don't need one, but I want one

I can have my hand in my pocket while standing around, super casual, but ready to yank out a pistol in a flash. This makes pocket carry the absolute fastest system.

If you're used to carrying stuff in your pockets, it's very comfortable. It's the most comfortable system I've used.

Nobody cares about stuff in your pockets because you always see stuff in pockets.

Make sure you have a pocket with depth to hold your gun and a large opening to easily get the gun and hand out. If your pants are too tight it defeats the purpose of pocket carry.
