Default Concealable Revolver

What would be a good small concealable revolver to purchase?

S&W J-frame say a model 60 snubbie or one of their airweight models if you prefer. They are 5 shot revolvers chambered in either .357 or .38 special. There are quite a few options as far as barrel length and sight style. Grips are also plentiful.

Default concealable revolver

It all depends on how you plan to dress. I can conceal a 6" m-29. My personal favorite and smallest revolver I own is a Smith M-65 3". 6 shots of .357 magnum in a package that can control full power loads. Round butt and no adjustable sights to snag. I got the factory DAO hammer for it and now it is virtually snag proof. IWB hoster and shirt tails hanging out concealed with out a hitch. Throw a bianchi speed strip in the right front pocket and I have 12 rounds of the best one shot stopping handgun ammo at my disposal.

Got to agree with sixgunner on the S&W, but I like the mod 36 J frame loaded with Hydrashoks. Just like American Express, never leave home without it.

S&W makes quite a few small, hammerless revolvers.

I have a S&W model 642 Lady Smith 5 shot .38 lightweight that is perfect for anytime carry. Hell, sometimes I shove it in my front pocket and go.

The 637's and 642's are nice pistols. I try to carry my wife's 637, but I can't pry it out of her hands.

yeah, a s&w hammerless .38 airweight will be one of my next purchases. My brother has one, and it seems very reliable and easy to use.

I seem to be carryin' my 3" model 60 more than anything. Although it chronographs 100 fps slower than my other .357s, there is no difficulty keepin' it on a critical mass target at 45+ yds. It is truly a delight to carry!
