Discussion in 'Handguns: Revolvers' started by KarateHottie93, Jan 20, 2022.
On the night stand, I usually have a 4" M-66 Smith in .357, loaded with Hornady's 158 gr XTP's loaded to the same "FBI" velocity level. My wife BTW, keeps a Glock 23 on her side of the bed.
We live in a 2 story farm house, with an alarm system, and a very protective German Shorthaired Pointer asleep on the landing. Response time for county police hereabouts runs to about 30 minutes...
In the night table.
There is also a Glock 45 in front room and a Mossberg 500 in the spare room.
It wouldn’t bother me at all to only have revolvers because I am more comfortable with them and a much better shot with them. But, I am also pragmatic. A G45 with 3 spare mags is a comfort when someone knocks at the door after dark.
As far as speedloaders go I have found 5 shot versions for J frame S&W revolvers to be rather small and inconspicuous when carried in my left side pants pocket.
If one is overly concerned about concealing a speedloader, there are always flat speed strips as member defjon mentioned in his post #98.
Is a 3" Model 36 stashed in a plastic bag under my bathroom sink.
The reason for the choice,,,
Was because it fit inside the zip-lock baggie.
My other 2 home defense guns are (they just changed a bit):
A CZ-75B in 9mm located in a nylon holster,,,
Screwed to the wooden rail of my bed,,,
Right where my hand falls naturally.
My EDC Ruger LCP n a De Santis Pocket Shot holster,,,
Usually sitting on the small table beside my TV watching chair.
There is a gun rack on the wall next to the bed. On it are three guns, an AK with a 40 round magazine, a 12 ga. SxS, and, resting comfortably in its holster is a 4" GP-100 in .357.
For me, a S&W 5906. I like a safety and a mag disconnect on a gun that my kids could conceivably get their hands on if the figured out the combination to the pistol safe.
I have one of those also (and a couple of single sevens). I don’t think I would ever have the need to use the fire arm. The warning system does double duty as home defense also.
My wife has a Ruger SP101 she confiscated from me after I returned home from the 1998 NPSC. I won the service gun aggregate and was awarded the bobbed hammer 2” 101. She promptly pick it up, opened the cylinder, checked out the trigger pull and said “this one is mine!” She keeps it nearby when I’m vacant from the premises. Keeps it loaded with some 125gr +P Ga Arms ammo I got as a door prize at a match... she shot magnums once and said “too much”.
I keep a recently acquired Taurus 856 with some near +P 148gr PC wadcutters running 800fps (chrono’d). Both have a pair of speedloaders handy...
I’d rather have that “two-edged” sword in your avatar!
A wonderful collection!
Classics are excellent.
The upper left 4” barreled revolver is my edc. The others can fill in but usually opt to stay home with herself. The upper right is my preferred substitute. The picture with the longer barreled revolvers are ones I take out for hunting or target practice.

That sounds awesome, but how would one secure that?
