    Which revolver for EDC

    If Joe Biden and the liberals were to get their way and ban "assault weapons" (semi-autos). What would be your revolver carry?

    I would love to have a 4" model 19, but only have a model 10 and 64, stupidly got rid of a 66 in about 1989.

    Was issued the 64 in 1989 so at least I have had formal training on how to speed reload and taught how to combat shoot with it.

    My model 10 was bought from my department when they were getting rid of old issued duty revolvers and picked it up for a whopping $27.00.

    I kind of like it better than the 64 but it shoots a bit to the right for me, the 64 is dead on.

    I really don't think and hope this attempt at gun control is either just talk or can not get passed.

    Just curious of you revolver guys what your choices would be.

    I like my Wiley Clapp gp100 although it's not for warm weather carry, but with a jacket OWB is great.

    S&W 640 Pro

    Wiley Clapp SP 101

    Would be my first two picks.

    OP, what length are your 10 and 64? Guessing 4 inchers being issue guns (?). Seeing as there ain't much difference other than steel vs stainless I'd pack the one that shoots best for you.

    When I feel inclined to carry a wheel gun I sport my .357 SP101. It's a standard model 3 inch with Hogue grips, and I carry a few "speed strips" with it cause they are nicer in the pocket than a speed loader.

    Part of me would like to go snubbie, but the extra inch of barrel doesn't matter much carry-wise and I get a little more velocity out of it. Should be enough for reliable expansion but I haven't personally shot gel to confirm. The 101 spends most of it's time wedged between the seats of my truck. Sort of an "always there" option unless I'm on a federal property that doesn't allow it.

    Yes they are 4" with Hogue rubber grips and HKS speed loaders.

    No difference just prefer the look of blue and it has a little smoother trigger.

    Mod 12 S&W; 2” “K”, alloy frame, .38 Special.
    Much easier for me to shoot than “J” frame, not much heavier, 6 rds.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    I’ve always been partial to the S&W K-frames. Not too large to carry, can practice with .38 loads all day long yet can handle .357 whenever needed. My wife’s model 65 Ladysmith with 3 inch heavy barrel seems to be just the right size carry revolver.

    I have the shorter SP101 and IMHO you chose wisely with the 3" version. I would carry my 2.25" SP101 if revolvers were the only option.

    I carried a bobbed, chamfered 3" SP101 for years. Had the excellent, long gone Trausch grips. Carried Speed Strips or Speedloaders loaded with 125gr .357 gold Dots.
    Heavy gun that shot great and I shot it well.
