Default What to carry?

I just bought a small taurus revolver model 617.It shoots .357 and 38 special and has 7 bullet capacity. I Love to shoot it at the range but im not sure if it's practical for carrying .Any opinions?

I have a Rossi 917 4"barrel I really like but dont carry it conceled- just for field use
If you like it & TRUST it find a good holster & carry it

If you know how to handle your gun it will work just fine.

1st decide what type you want- Open top, strap in, thumb breat, IWB ect
Then google leather maker like Bianchi ,Don Hume, Safrailand, Milt Sparks if you have deep pockets,

I like the clip on Don Hume myself-


As to your Taurus - IF you can carry your gun into some place to find & fit it to a holster much better- I found one for my 4" Rossi at my local FFL dealers for $10 - Good leather & fully lined-

Depending where I am at and what I have planned.
My carry pieces vary. I use revolvers, small semi-auto's, medium sized semi-auto's and full sized.
The mode of carry varies, also.

(but I do not use any of Uncle Mike's or any other generic fitting holster.)

Carry what ever suits you and your environment.

I have a Ruger SP101 that could be a great little carry gun. But I'm a pretty dreadful shot with it in double action, so it's strictly a range toy for now. Maybe that'll change. I carry autos only right now. BHP or occasionally XDm45 in the colder months, KelTec PF9 when I'm dressing light. At some point I'd like to add a Sig P239sas or 4"1911 as an additional option.

If you make a habit or carrying, you'll probably look to expand your stable of carriables...to accomodate varying weather, attire, environments, etc.
