way back yon for about 8 months of the year I OWB carried a 3" GP100 that was a Canadian Police trade in. coupled with two speed loaders I felt reasonably armed. in the heat of summer I carried a G36 though because it was easier to conceal with a reload.

Uberti SAA .45 LC, 4.75" in a IWB holster designed for a 1911. Loose fit, but it works. And Speedstrips in a pocket. Every day.
Once I get a custom IWB holster for my new Colt SAA .45, and swap out the grips with stag, I'll start carrying that. Why carry an Italian steel copy when I have the real thing.

Yep. Generally, I carry a 2.5" Model 19 or a 3" Model 65. In my neck of the woods, nobody's checking me out for a bulge under my jacket, so I'm not too worried about printing.

Almost always my .357 LCR with .38+p loads. If I want smaller it's my P32, bigger is a Shield 9. But almost always it's the LCR OWB at three o'clock in a Michael Kole custom holster.

I find myself carrying revolvers as much as a semi. I swap between 2 as the feelings/wardrobe sway.

SP101 in a leather side rig or a Smith 642 in the front pocket with a DeSantis.

I have a 3" LCRx357 that I rotate with my LCR357. I carry them both IWB at 1:00. The LCR is in a Kydex holster from "JustHolsterIt" and disappears and is forgotten about. I wear the 3" in a leather Azula IWB in the same position... I notice its presence when I sit because of the additional inch of barrel. Have to shift it to 3:00 occasionally to be comfortable.

My EDC revolver is a Taurus Protector Poly in .357. For around town, I carry Critical Defense .38+P 110 grain JHP. In the woods, I carry .357 158 grain JSP. The Taurus replaced a SP-101, for the weight savings. I generally carry in an inexpensive nylon IWB holster.

My primary CCW handguns have been revolvers since I started carrying a gun in 1983.

I started with a Charter Arms Off Duty, then about 20 years ago transitioned to a Smith & Wesson Model 042.

I've also carried my 2.5" Model 19 S&W quite a bit over the years.

It's in my right front pocket right now.

Yes, I have carried semi-autos occasionally, but I consider a revolver to be my primary.

Recently, though, I picked up a Walther CCP that I'm putting through its paces with the intention of it becoming my primary CCW.

I carry a 642, in a pocket, usually no holster but sometimes in a cheap Walmart nylon pocket holster. Once in a while in a iwb holster from Hume.

I carry the following two revolvers every day, all year long...

Today it was my Charter Arms Undercover in a Galco Miami Classic Lite holster.
To be vintage it's gotta be older than me!

Nice rigs. What kind of shoulder holster is that?

I carry a long-barreled L frame concealed everyday, in a holster I made myself. The current revolver has been my EDC for more than a year now. Before, I carried J frames. Those were easier to get used to carrying but the bigger revolver is easier to shoot faster and with more precision. I train with and carry it because the reason I carry isn't to carry, but to have the ability to shoot well when necessary.
