I carry a semi-auto. I really admire Smith & Wesson J frames, but just don't shoot them worth a darn. [No doubt a failing on my part]
I have a Taurus snubby in forty-five cal. that I will sometimes pocket when I am walking around the yard or going to my mailbox, which is about 150 yards from my front door. Seems to be a decent gun, although I haven't shot it a lot. Bought it on a whim one day.......
