I would say that no, the single-stack 9mm hasn't killed the carry revolver, but I think it's encroached significantly into the revolver's domain, maybe even the majority of the domain. But I think there will always be people around who will appreciate the capabilities of a good snub revolver.

I EDC a 642, but I have to admit that a single-stack 9mm would be a nice option to have. I'm not taking about pocket 9s, though. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Sig P239 or a Kahr P9.

A little off topic, but I always thought a scandium alloy/stainless steel version of the 2" Model 12 RB, with a dovetailed front sight, would make for a great concealed carry K-frame.

Also, I miss my bobbed/DAO 2" 64.
