So I have been carrying concealed for a long time. I have tried full size semi autos, compact semi auto , the tiny semi auto and snubbie revolvers. I found for me the gun I would carry all the time was my ruger lcr 38 special . Though I always felt like I am giving up a little in power and range I could hit with it and have it on me. Recently I got the ruger sp101 in 357 with the 4.2 in barrel. What a great multi purpose gun it has barrel length that I can hit farther easier with. Adjustable sights for accuracy, a sufficient power level that I can practice with hot loads , 38 special and some hard cast 180 grain for trail carry. I found a tuckable holster that it conceals under a dress shirt or regular iwb carry with a tee shirt. I realize I don't have high capacity but I don't really feel a need. So I think I have found a great cc gun that compliments my lcr . Funny that my choice with all the options out there is old school.
