While I didn't really need this sweet revolver, I found it to be perfect for that OWB high-ride curve in my side. Carried in a Mernickle holster made just for this revolver, it's lighter than the other CCWs. I love the grip and ability to point at what I want to shoot. Yeah, its a single action, but as some say...if he's carrying it he must know how to use it. Now I want one in stainless!
