Now I go both ways...
Yep, I bought a revolver. I was looking at smaller 9mm carry guns and could not find one with a decent trigger that fit my hand. I picked up a .38 snub wheel gun, low and behold it felt great. After looking at a few, I bought a Taurus 85 Ultralight. Still small and light for carry but shoots a respectable .38sp +P.

I'll still carry my beloved Commander size 1911, but this snubbie should be great for warmer CC.

You can never go wrong with a wheel gun....I am and always will be an avid supporter of the revolver. I still own semi's....Hell, I will support all quality handguns:D

There is nothing wrong with a wheel gun! I carry a CZ75B 40 Cal. but I also keep a wheel gun (.357) handy at all times.

Snubbies rock! I bought a S&W 640 for summer carry and it has become my favourite gun to shoot. These little wheelguns are a lot more accurate than most people give them credit for.

I don't own any Taurus guns yet, but the stainless model 85 is tempting.

Now you can install a Wolff spring kit for up to 40% less double action pull weight. I've got to where I install them standard when doing an action tune.
My wife chose almost the same gun as you-same type anyway-an S&W 442 in .38+P.

Now you can tell everyone you are a bi gun owner.

Ho.... I wouldn't say THAT too loud!

I own 4 wheel guns but none for carry use. I'm thinking I want a 38 or 357 S&W snubby for casual/pocket carry. If I pick one up I will avoid the bi carry description as much as I would avoid the bi gun owner tag.
