I love big bore revolvers, but *carrying one all day in urban areas is actually impossible. I also have some very nice automatics like the Kimber Super Carry Pro .45, or my FN FiveseveN. *Carrying those would be OK, until I found in a traffic stop that I had unknowingly broken some obscure Oklahoma firearms law and have it confiscated. I also have some good service grade automatics and even a tiny .380.
No, when I can *carry every day I have ended up with a Ruger LCR .38 with a Tritium front sight, and a Simply Rugged Pancake holster. I also have an LCR with a Laser but I don't really like it. This combination is light, reliable, and with the pancake OWB holster virtually unnoticeable through clothing. In Texas, that is a big deal because you will be arrested if your *carry piece shows through. They call that "printing". So, light, reliable, concealable, and comfortable in the long run points to my LCR.
How about you?
* Outside of Illinois, or unloaded and enclosed in a case within Illinois.
