I'm thinking of CC'ing either the 325 (3") and/or the pre 29 (4"). They're both very accurate for me.

So, for those of you who regularly carry an N frame revolver concealed, what's your rig?

Milt Sparks makes an IWB for these and recommended this one for the "hand cannons"

I use to carry one of these all the time.

Burger burn time.
They're very pretty Iggy, but not really "concealed ". :)

Top 3, that's the only way they were carried and worn... Mosshorned old cowboy with a black leather vest don't draw much attention in Wyoming..;):D
Bottom one kinda works under that vest, but that ain't quite the goal with that rig...:cool:

I carry a 4" 610 at times. I use a couple of holsters made by Mike Taurisano. I don't know if he is still in business but is a great guy to work with. If you do call him make sure you speak up, he is very hard of hearing I believe.

While not exclusively, I have qualified with and carried N frames over the years. I also carry a 6 inch Model 29 Silhouette as a back up when deer hunting.

While N frames are large, with a good gun belt and the proper holster they can be both comfortable and concealed. I am partial to the original Roy Baker Pancake holsters. If I cannot find a Roy's Leather holster to fit, I go with a contemporary pancake style holster.

These are the ones I've qualified with and carried.

Model 629-6 Camfour gun, with fixed sights and a 2.5 inch barrel.




Model 27-2




Model 25-2 Jovino conversion




Model 629-3 Lew Horton Performance Center, Carry Comp (also called Mag Comp). Three inch, top compensated barrel and fixed sights.

So, pancake is the way to go? Comfortable?

Some pancakes have thumb snaps and hammer shields, which I like. This has been really helpful!

I’ve carried my X-Framed 460V openly in a shoulder setup that I designed. That’s alot of stainless steel (3lbs 14oz unloaded (per the local UPS store) – I’ve never had it weighed loaded), and at that weight, you always know it’s there, but I’ve carried for 4-5 hours without an issue. I’ve also carried it in the 9 o’clock position in a cross-draw configuration on a 2” belt that I use with my jeans. With that arrangement, it isn’t uncomfortable, but it keeps pulling down the left side of my trousers, which is why I went with the shoulder arrangement. And, as for spare ammunition, I have a cartridge case that I made that holds 5 replacements. I figure if 10 .45 LC’s won’t do it – I’m screwed anyway. I’ve also open carried my L-Framed 4” 686 in the aforementioned cross-draw arrangement, and at 2½ lbs empty (also per the local UPS store), you also know it’s there, but I don’t experience any “trouser droop”. Regards . . .
