As Cameron says, “Love a good J-frame revolver for pocket carry when I can’t carry a full size gun. A knife always comes along.” No arguments here. See everything he carries at Everyday Carry . . .

      • Only for pocket carry, the way I see it, and then you might as well get a fully-enclosed hammer with a 642, 442, or LCR, which should keep the internals cleaner. When I carried a 637 and practiced drawing in all kinds of ways, I never snagged anything with the hammer in a way that interfered with the draw, except with pocket carry. Sometimes it caught my undershirt and lifted it slightly when drawing from IWB, but it didn’t mess up the draw.

        I also liked the option of single action fire. These days, there are scenarios like firing from cover against an active shooter at a distance, where you might want that option. Unlikely, I know, but it’s nice to know the option is there. Plus I find it handy for checking sight alignment and accuracy with a given load at the range, since it cuts down on the shooter-induced deviation you get with a heavier DA pull. It gives you a benchmark to measure your DA shooting against.

        • Exactly. I love how light the trigger pull is when I need to be more accurate. As we all know j frames have sights that leave you wanting a tad more.

        • On the other hand, my new LCRx with 3-inch barrel has shown to be highly snag-prone in some holsters, because of the adjustable rear sight, not the hammer. I tried it in a Sticky Holster, which seemed to work OK for about a day, but once the holster broke in and softened a bit, it conformed to the covered rear sight and it started snagging badly (totally stopping the draw) at the top lip of the holster.

          If you are going to carry one, chose a holster like the Mitch Rosen sold on Ruger’s website, where the holster doesn’t enclose the rear sight at all, and where the rear sight is above the belt and pants lip (if IWB) so they can’t snag there either. It is the one big disappointment I have with the gun. If Ruger made the same model with low-snag Novaks, it would be perfect. The way it is, carry options are limited.
