What WE are carrying during this forced downtime are two Smith & Wesson J-frames. My wife is a dedicated revolver shooter and has some bad arthritis in her right wrist. Luckily she is a lefty and shoots left handed but it makes it hard for her to use a flashlight with a handgun.
So I made up this Smith 627 with a Crimson Trace Lasergrip and a LaserMax trigger mounted flashlight. She carries it in her CCW purse when she ventures out for work, she is a nurse, with a spare reload of CCI Blazer 158 grain HP, the load which shoots best out of it.
For myself since I am no longer going to the city for work I have put away my pistols for the time being and started carrying my Mag-Na-Port Int. modified S&W Model 60 revolver. They did an action job, ported it and put new high visibility C-More sights on it for my aging eyes.
I am carrying it in a Foxx Holsters Little Foxx loaded with Freedom Munitions .357 125 grain XTP and I carry two reloads of Freedom Munitions 125 grain .38 specials, for compatibility with my wife’s revolver also.
We live in a fairly rural area with a relatively low crime rate, and so far there is a not a real sense of danger or overt anxiety about supplies. Therefore we feel relatively comfortable carrying the smaller 5-shot Smiths. If things change drastically I can always pull out the higher capacity pistols.
