For years, I have always carried large frame handguns - Beretta's, Sig's, 1911's, HK's, etc. The smallest auto I've ever carried is a Sig P6.

I've been shooting this 586 quite a bit and have been packing it for the last 2 weeks or so. For some reason, I have absolutely fallen in love with this thing. It really is no larger than most full size autos and with the right holster combination, it is as comfortable, if not moreso than than anything else I've carried.

I've been carrying it in a Bianchi #7 and it hugs in nice and tight and is high enough to clear the bottom of the large T-shirts I wear. I was hesitant about the target stocks at first, but found that they do not print whatsoever (they seem to disappear in that "small" fat roll I have ;) ).

I figure I'd be the laughing stock if anyone knew, as most folks consider a large frame revolver "outdated" and "non-tactical". And only 6 rounds? You gotta have at least 17 with another spare 17 on your belt if you want to survive a gunfight. :roll:

Call me stupid, but I have no hesitation carrying this 586.

You're absolutely right Bob.

For me, geography certainly plays a part in choice. If I lived in a large metropolitan area, I might make a different choice - or maybe not. ;) We just don't have "big city" crime problems here. I think that is one of the main reasons why people flock to this area. Things may certainly change in the future. I'm more in danger of getting bit by a four footer than getting accosted by someone. I have a habit of shooting IDPA targets on their sides to practice against animals. :lol:

If you've read my signature, that pretty much sums up my philosophy. I read somewhere recently that we've got lots of gun owners, but not that many shooters.

I feel dissapointed when I research the number of CCW permit holders in our county and see the consistantly poor turnout at our monthly matches. I believe we have somewhere around 6,000 permit holders here. Yet, we only get 5-15 shooters at matches - and they are the same ones who have been coming for years now. l;gmna;

:oops: Yeah, and next month it'll be something else. :lol:

Seriously though, I really want to knuckle down and pick one. I'm hoping my enjoyment of this 586 does not go away any time soon.
