When I carry a revolver, it's either a M&P 340 or a 3" Model 65. Both are typically carried AIWB.

I have a couple of semi-auto's I like to carry, but for me, it's revolvers at least 90% of the time.

And the one that gets the most travel time is this one;



I snagged it at an estate auction several months ago. Some might say that it needs to be in a collection or on display, but the guns around here have to work for a living.

Just found out this morning that S&W is making the 642 without an internal lock again, and I have one on the way, so this might change shortly.

The last two posters showed pics but didn't say what the guns were.

Maybe it's obvious.

Or are my mind reading skills slipping?

My mistake. I actually thought it was obvious, because it was this forum that helped me identify it.

It's post-war transitional M&P, shipped February 1947.

Semi auto 90% of the time in an OWB snap-loop Lobo Leather holster. I mostly carry a 6904 but will rotate with a 3913 or an M&P 357c or 40c. The 3rd gens share the same holster and I have another (same style) that the M&P's share. I will occasionally carry a revolver and when I do it's either a 65 or a 66 both in 3"...they also share a holster. There is the odd occasion when I will carry a 1911 E series Sc 4 1/4" but that would be a cold weather gun under a heavy coat and more of a BBQ gun...again...Lobo Leather.

Except for the 1911 all these guns are draw and shoot with no safety...in the case of the 3rd gens carried hammer down off safe.

For those who want to carry only one gun for the sake of familiarity I say "fine". As for me I like to mix it up a bit and am very comfortable with all the guns in my rotation. If I find that I need a gun anything I happen to be carrying will do just fine. It's a different deal entirely for LEO's.

I notice that the OP uses the word rotation like it's a normal or proper thing. It is not. I don't always carry the same gun, but I recognize that that is partly a bad thing, and I shouldn't do it without a good-enough excuse. In my case, it is usually about clothing.

If toting a gun were more important to my health than I think it is, I would probably be stricter. As it is, there is now pretty much one [main] gun I carry when I'm serious, at which time I will also generally carry my regular backup.

As toys, or for practice, I use a lot of guns. I believe that it is best to have a familiar sight picture and trigger pull when carrying for real.

I don't think that we should use words like rotation, leading people who haven't yet learned better to think that that is some kind of normal practice.

These two.

I just bought a 640 Carry-Comp in .357, so my 940PC might get a well deserved break.

Usually a 5" 1911 and 442.

A 4" 22-4 accompanies me on occasion when dressed for it.

On certain occasions the 442 goes solo with a speed loader.

When going where firearms are prohibited (which happens quite often) there is only a belt knife and 4" folder.

I would like to add a big bore snub as something in an intermediate size. I'm leaning heavily towards a Charter Arms Bulldog Pug in 44spl.

Edited to add:
A 2-1/8" 649 357 is currently on layaway.

Daily, for concealed carry, it's a .45 caliber Colt Commander in an old Bianchi Shadow holster. When I carry a revolver it's usually in the field and open carry. There it depends on mission and my mood but the Colt SAA in .44-40 or the Highway Patrolman are the most likely to be on my belt.

Until recently a 2 1/2" 686 was the primary revolver I carried. I am still qualified to carry it. Recently I have started carrying model 36 as a second gun. It will soon surpass the 686.

As fast as I can run 'em...

20140815_134250_LLS by Slick_Rick77, on Flickr

Slow fire with the snubbie @15 yards:
INTERNET SNUBBY MATCH-20140812_204723-jpg
Running fast as possible they stay within a pie plate at ten yards.

Rapid fire at longer range.
INTERNET SNUBBY MATCH-20140725_224306-jpg
Still "combat" accurate. The gun, of course, capable of better.

OP, I can identify. I grew up in the great white North before moving to Florida long ago.

My first CC was a Colt Mustang in a custom made pocket holster. Very concealable in shorts and an un-tucked shirt. The Mustang still rides as backup-to-the-backup.



However, the 637 and 642 are my favorites, riding in pocket holsters.



As I practice more with the heavier 640, it's proving to be a contender.



BTW: I tried a model 19 2 1/2" IWB and a Detective Special. They work, but I kept going back to the j-frames.

Maybe rotate is not the right word. I have four J Frames. All basically the same, feel the same, handle the same, shoot the same ammo. I like to carry all of them, so I rotate them.

Same with my K Frames.

Basically you will find me carrying a J Frame or a K frame. Not a huge difference.

I also shoot a couple of times a week. And train with some shooting buddies once a month or once every two months. They are ex military and we train hard with rifles and handguns. I am very intimate with any gun I carry and would be 100% comfortable using whatever I am carrying in any situation.

I most commonly carry a Colt Commander.

The S&W I carry if I'm not carrying the Colt is a M38.

I wouldn't call it "rotate" either, but I can see a reason for having at least 2 or 3 guns to carry depending on circumstances.

One for summer with shorts and t-shirt. Another when you are wearing a coat in winter. Perhaps another when you might meet a 4 leg predator. Etc.

Threat level and circumstances are not always the same, so one firearm for every situation might be sub-optimal.

Or you could just carry a S&W 500 and call it good.

My EDC consists of a Model 638-1, and a Model 38-0 both equipped with Crimson Trace LG-405 laser grips, and loaded with standard velocity .38 Special ammo. I almost always pocket carry and favor the DeSantis Nemesis holsters. I am a big fan of the New York reload, and didn't realize how quickly I had become accustomed to carrying 2 J-frames at the same time until recently. My son has developed an interest in hunting, and when I was getting dressed to take him dove hunting, I decided to carry only one revolver, as I knew I would also have a 12 ga. pump shotgun, and I was trying to minimize my payload as walking the dove fields was going to be a chore with my back and hip problems. I kept patting my pocket where my Model 38 usually resides, and finally had to have a talk with myself about that so I could quit that bad habit.

Regards,

Dave

That's my grail, an S series snub, beautiful piece !

I carry a 642, but when I carry a K frame its this 1956 RB M&P (Pre-10) with a Tyler T.

IMHO that should be a separate topic. "people who haven't yet learned better" may simply not share your concern and would object to being cast as ignorant.

I carry most of the time, and pocket carry when I carry.

When you own a number of guns, you might rotate them as a way of enjoying them. I don't carry anything in which I have no confidence in my proficiency with it. I don't need match grade skill for EDC, especially considering the odds of being in some bad situation.

I'm about 50/50 on carrying a wheelgun/semi-auto and of that time, a 442 with CT grip, a M60 with Bantams are split somewhat equally. A M36 no dash, flat latch get a bit of time too.

MY bottom feeders that see some carry action are a 9mm Shield, M&P9c, Kimber Ultra Raptor II .45, FNP 9, Colt Mustang Plus II (.380) and a Springfield XDs .45.

All are carried IWB.

I do occasionally carry a .22lr in the woods around the house or out with the dogs. (Buckmark, Ruger SR or a S&W M622). Those are usually OWB.

Hi:
Around the house, yard, and a quick trip to Winn-Dixie (5minutes away) a S&W Model 60.
Going Out: S&W Model 60 with one speed loader and a Glock 17 with an extra magazine.
Same weapons daily.

For around town CCW, I rotate a 340PD, SP101 2.25", Seecamp 32, and a Glock 42.
When I'm out in the woods I usually carry either a 629PC 2 5/8", or a 500 4", although sometimes when I'm feeling daring and pretty sure I'll not encounter anything with big fangs and claws that growls, and want to travel lighter, I'll substitute in the SP101. I almost always have one of those 6 guns with me.

Why thank you. I found that old fellow at an estate auction several months ago. Told myself I wouldn't go over $500...but I lied. The other guy stopped at $500, I went to $520. It was in it's "second original box"; a very, very old Dutch Masters cigar box and wrapped in oil cloth. It had what looked like ancient cosmoline under the side plate, I think it had been kept far more than used. Is my baby.

That is a very handsome snubby you have yourself. Love round butt K frames of any barrel length.

Only this one this summer, it's the lightest I have, a 442 Pro Series I picked up earlier this year. This winter I will rotate it with a G26 on the belt.

revolver carry only. Used to be my 66-1, 2.5" but now it is my 60-10, 3". I shoot the 60 better and it seems to carry a little easier as well.

Yes, they are Altamont. I believe they call them aged ivory or antique aged ivory. They aren't listed on Altamont's website yet for the J frames, but they are making them.

I have more info about them in this thread: Altamont plus BK on my M&P 340

Never a big J-frame fan..... always had/have at least one.... but they never saw much use........ but my 60-10 is my "Kit Gun"....... and my Kit Guns are safe queens!

I think of the 60-10 as my micro-686

90%

M642

No. M642 unless I get a bee in my bonnet to carry something else.

Pocket.

==========================================================
I said 90% but it's really 100% currently, now that I think about it.
