    DAO is the way to go for a concealed snub. Bobbed revolver hammers are a common thing, not necessarily what I would consider a "bubba" modification. In any case, I got one of these to carry, DAO from the factory.

    I've carried a S&W Centennial in either steel or airweight for over 20 years of CCW. I swear by them as for revolvers. Appendix IWB. But I use a .22 Ruger LCR II for understudy and an all metal solid non-gun J frame for draw practice at home. Plus I reload. Skill is far more important than what gun you pack.

    But now I'm packing Glock 43 most of the time. Except for Appendix IWB the Glock is just as handy as the Centennial but more powerful and holds more rounds.

    Great thing about this forum is what others know and you can learn from. I never heard of RASC and thought pike bishop was referring to they knife. I looked up “RASC knife” and up came the attachment to the loading strips. Neat device.

    They are made by GearCraft holsters. It is the old Solo model that, last I looked, they don't make anymore. But, if you ask them for Gen.1 Solos, they might do it. They made mine by request, but it was very shortly after they went to the Gen.2s. That was a year or two back now.

    I get what you are saying. Heck, I carry a P365 way more often than any of my snubs. Still, there is something about the snubby that makes it attractive. Despite its limitations.

    A bamboo fishing rod, a manual transmission, books, wool sweaters, leather holsters, revolvers. There are newer, maybe better, replacements but the nostalgia is worth the inconvenience or extra effort. 5 plus rds of .38 and up ( and a strip or reloader) ought to be enough.

    Your pic is better than mine. [​IMG]

    Plus your sights are better, your grips are bigger, you can fire .357(if need be), and you have no lock.

    I still love my 442 (lock removed) carried AIWB in a Vedder LightTuck. A Speed Strip or two in my right front pocket. I stoke it with standard velocity Hornady 125gr XTP Hollowpoint ammo. It shoots point of aim from 5 to 15 yds about as fast as I can cycle the trigger. Will also ding my 12” steel plates out to 25-30 yds if I do my part.

    True, although I would argue that a snubbie in pocket is MORE convenient and takes LESS effort.

    Here's my EDC. I really like it. LCR in .327 Federal Magnum. Six shots of 350 ft/lbs of goodness.

    I don't like softee holsters for pocket carry so this S&W Model 60 Chief's Special J-frame in .38 Special goes into this stiff and grabby little eyesore. I can't remember the make of this particular holster as I bought it quite a few years ago, but it fulfills its assigned role admirably for me. I consider the +P hollowpoints that I feed The Pocketed One to be adequate.

    It’s so nice to see all this revolver love.

    I carried my S&W model 64 today. It’s a 3” barrel, round butt model. Not the prettiest revolver I own by any means, but it’s a very practical carry revolver.

    I carried a Comp II speedloader in a split-six pouch on my belt, and a speed strip in my pocket as reloads.

    I carry it loaded with Gold Dot short barrel 135g.

    I always feel well armed with that setup, and I practice with it often.

    I like these $30 grips a great deal. Desantis mini speed scabard and a speed strip from a colt cobra ( 6 rds) C0A53895-65CC-4B6B-87C2-0913C3635DEC.jpeg
