My PPS .40 has gotten full time carry duty since I have started carrying. Its small, accurate, and very concealable. To me it is the IDEAL concealed carry gun.

But here lately I have been considering more and more going to wheel gun for carry instead of the PPS...

Currently, I carry with a 5 rd mag, so that's 5 + 1. My wheel gun is a 6 shooter. I carry (1) seven round mag for spare, so that is 6 + 7 for a total of 13 rounds on my person. The extra mag is bulky. I can carry 2 quick strips for a total of 18 rounds in less space. The wheelgun won't jam (for the most part). Not that I've had it happen with my PPS but the likelihood is greater for a jam with it than a wheelie.

So to me the plusses outweigh the negatives. Am I the only one who thinks this way?

Who carries what? Don't have to be specific, just wheelgun or semiauto for your anwer will suffice.

If I had researched ballistics a little more before buying my XDm I would have bought it in 9mm. But then I sold the XDm when I bought the PPS and so I didn't want to start over with my ammo stock. I love my 40 but with +p ammo nowadays I think 9mm would suffice. Can't believe I just said that! Haha

But thanks! I have a 357 already.

I like a JMB-type semi-auto for two reasons-- they're slimmer and generally easier to hide, and I shoot 'way better with a single action than a double action.

j-frame 642 in pocket...other stuff in other pockets...I carry a BUG...Back Up Gun

revos don't jam...they can get dirty and go boom every time..etc etc

If you have a problem...mostly likely it will happen very fast, be over very fast and most times just a few shots...a revo will handle about 95% of potential situations...light weight...stainless...easy to maintain..easy to carry

Some say they are inaccurate...that depends on the shooter...I've seen Cargill hit a piece of steel 100 yards away shooting a snub upside down...the brutha IS good...

Not fun to practice with....in fact they suck.....embrace the suck...practice anyway

Both, just depends on the mood I guess. Either a 642, or a 1911. Got a snubbie barrel in the DW pistol pack, but haven't carried it yet.

My primary weapon is a Glock 26 (sometimes with a spare 33rd mag if I'm feeling extra nervous) with a Kel Tec P3AT as backup.

I've been strongly considering going back to my first love though (357 snubbie). Those M&P 340s are freaking awesome. I may just end up carrying THREE guns. If you can't decide on one just carry them all.

All the wheelguns I have are BIG -- too big for CC ...
