    She does, she's 111 years old. Too old to shoot the .44 Mag snubbies but she carries her Glock 33 AIWB.

    I'm not a big 357 guy but the Colt Lawman is my personal favorite.

    G48 is now my primary carry at church.

    It is backed up by a Ruger KLCR .357 in a front pocket when wearing a tucked shirt. The KLCR is carried cross draw OWB in a Mitch Rosen holster when wearing an untucked shirt.

    In the winter the same KLCR is carried in a coat pocket as a primary and G48 becomes a secondary. I don't always carry the Ruger though.

    Currently I am starting to feel the need for a 3 inch Ruger SP 101 or Colt King Cobra.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    If you mean the SP101 357 mag, Outstanding...!
    I've been shooting Ruger revolvers since I was a young kid. Strong as tanks, and last forever, and I have never had but one minor issue out of all of them, and they have been used very hard.

    Specifically the SP101 pictured in post #127, it is a 3 1/16th" barrel 5 shot 357mag, and really handles the hottest loads you can shove in it. "extremely accurate," even with the channel sights. My late son had one as well, and I have seen him during 'play time,' on the ranch, take some dried out hog rib bones, and stick them in the ground and at almost 40 yards, sit back and cut them in to..

    I bobbed the hammer on mine in the pic above, as I do pack it from time to time, and I personally don't like a working thumb spur on a SD carry gun. I don't want the very 'potential problem' of having that come up should, (God Forbid) it ever be used in a SD situation, and go to court. Not that 'worried' about it, but, I like to eliminate everything, and anything, that could be argued in court that "well, you probably had the hammer cocked, and under stress you dropped that hammer on my late client.." Just eliminating one more thing that 'can be' argued...

    If you like 357mag, I personally recommend this very strong and durable SP101. It is heavier than all the rest out there pretty much, but I like that personally, and cuts down a bit on recoil.

    HTH's ;)

    Been pocket carrying my new LCR in .327 Fed Magnum for about a week filled with .327 Magnum Hornady Critical Defense. Very mild recoil for an 80gr bullet doing about 1400fps. Really digging this setup so far.

    Don't know what I think about the .327 Federal Magnum 100gr SP round though. 500 ft/lbs of energy and 30" of penetration is great up in the mountains but the recoil is a *****. Might still be my woods carry.

    I'm 70 now so lightweight counts a lot....my Ruger LCR 38 3 in does the job....if Ruger puts 8rds on the LCRs 22 mag.....I would be good

    I would also be interested in that. 22mag is an underestimated round. IMO. 8 of them in a small lightweight snubbie is very enticing.

    I post the same thing for all the mutilated guns people post. The granddad's prized WWI or WWII bring back that Bubba tries to make look tactical. All those Glocks which have been destroyed with soddening irons. The revolvers with part or ALL of the trigger guards gone.

    I HATE DAO guns. Your's looks like a good modification and it is just a hammer, it can be replaced.
