If Ruger made the cylinders thinner then you wouldn't be able to shoot Ruger only handloads. If you want a thin, light pistol that has a history of cracked cylinders and blown out frames S&W is waiting for you.
I know people who carry revolvers with long barrels in their belt without a holster all the time. I am sure you have seen Shelby the Swamp Man carrying his revolver with a 10" barrel in his belt. Other people have been carrying revolvers in the same fashion for a long time. His life is as rough and tumble as anyone's life. If Shelby drops his revolver a ND is the least of his problems. His problem is diving in river to recover his pistol.
I use an IWB holster for a Kel Tec P 3AT to carry a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6" barrel. No, the gun is not pointing at my cods. I don't carry the Ruger all the time but if I feel the need I will carry it.
Actually JD I'm a revolver guy through and through. If you paid attention to my posts you would know that. I own a couple semi-autos but I have said since basically the beginning that I prefer revolvers.
I have gotten into countless discussions with people about capacity, and I was always on the side of "capacity isn't the end-all, be-all."
I simply make the point about +1 because Smith and Wesson can do it, so its a viable option.
So don't lecture me about what kind of firearms I prefer. Because you're wrong in this case.
And what are you talking about, "I use an IWB holster for a Kel Tec P 3AT to carry a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6" barrel." ????
Are you being serious? Or are you just off your rocker?
