The Old Fashioned Gentleman's Concealed Carrry Handgun

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

The Old Fashioned Gentleman's Concealed Carrry Handgun

Post by joegoat » Wed Mar 30, 2016 8:24 am

Though I rotate through several carry pieces, I have say My Taurus 605 revolver in .357 mag is my favorite. I also prefer a classic leather holster to tuck it into my waist band.

They look a little big for concealment actually. Is that a revolver in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

Those are all old Ruger .44's

Yes, although this is a running joke between Nancy and me.

I call foul!
I don't see the .44 Magnum as an Old Fashioned Gentleman's Concealed Carry. Col. Charlie Askins was the father of the beast, and while he was both a gentleman (by act of Congress,) and old fashioned enough to have packed mules and wear a cowboy hat, I don't recall him ever concealing a .44 Maggie.
Derringers, vest pocket semi automatic models, snubbies, S&W Safety Models and Colt 1849er's OTOH were both old fashioned and concealable.

A guy contacted me today to see if I was interested in a pair of Baby Brownings...I love those little pistols and would have been interested but for my over indulgence at the Gun Show 2 weeks ago.......so he will have to shop them elsewhere.

BUT a Baby Browning qualifies as an OFG concealed carry handgun

Only have one. S&W Chief's Special model 60 snubnose. I work 3rd shift in a wide open hotel, so I carry it every night.

I have been wanting a Sig P938; I like the looks of the Rosewood model. Small enough for a pocket holster, Browning style ergonomics, 9mm is much better than .380

Would love a similar (ok slightly larger) option in 45 ACP or 40 S&W

edit - And I prefer an auto to a wheel gun. Just me. Unless it's a big honkin' N frame, love those, but I'm not CC'ng that.
