    Semi-auto easier to conceal

    Happiness is a .44 special DAO loaded with Corbon's in your front pocket.

    IMO, The best belly gun is a revolver. Their function is as close as one gets to a guarantee.

    Cleaning is a snap. No parts to remove.

    Auto's have their place. But for them up close situations, you can't beat a good wheel gun.

    Like them both, but carry a 1911.

    I own both. My Kel-Tec P3AT .380 semi-automatic pistol is my "out and about" carry of choice. It's small enough to conceal no matter what the season of the year. Around the house, I keep my S&W 442 38 Special +P revolver near by. Either way, it's comforting to know I'm armed and not at the mercy of the BGs.

    I carry both. My carry weapons are a Kahr PM9, S&W M60 and a Ruger LCP. I like the simplicity and reliability of the revolver, plus if you have to jam it in the BG's gut and fire you don't have a failure to fire due to the slide being out of battery. One good thing on the hammer spur is you can draw and cock (if the situation warrants it), so grabbing the cylinder is a non-issue. The Kahr and LCP are easier to conceal (the LCP is my pocket gun when I can't carry anything else), plus the Kahr is scarily accurate.

    Personally I think, with a good holster, a smaller revolver will conceal as well as an auto, at least OWB. The cylinder adds a natural curve that makes it blend in with the body.

    In the cool fall and winter months when layers are the norm, I carry the revolver often. It's a medium K frame Smith and Wesson 4" barrel so like Ricbac noted, It's hard to conceal when temps are high...

    Small auto's are the summer carry. M&P40c or the Colt Officer's ACP..

    Like JJFlash mentioned , revolvers are sexy.

    So both would be the answer.

  10. I mainly carry my G19 but, on occasions I like carrying my Taurus 617. I am looking to get the Ruger LCR as a backup the Taurus is a tad to big for a backup.

  11. I tote a CW45 or PM9 every day....and I'm considering beginning toting BOTH every day. the PM9 would make a good BUG.
