Couple a months ago I bought a K6s in 357 magnum.
Have carried it some, and it carries easier than my Glock, which I've carried for several years.
I've acquired 5 speedloaders for it and am in the process of building a two loader belt pouch.

The decision is power vs capacity.
In 1977 I used a 357 mag to solve a dispute. I know it works.
I'm leaning towards 6 rounds of 125 grain jhp and what I view as top of the protection food chain
, in lue of 13 rounds of pretty good protection.

Decisions, decisions.

Kind of like apples to oranges. Two different ways to solve the same problem, and both are proven to work.

Which one do you shoot best? Which one do you have the most confidence in?

Those 125 grainers are a handful in a small gun! And in a 2" barrel you lose a lot of velocity compared to a 4", but still edges out the 9mm for power.

And they conceal "different" if you know what I mean - generally autos are more comfy for IWB and revolvers work better for pocket carry. Only YOU know which best suits your style of dress/carry.

Well, the K6s is a hammered 3", and I made the IWB to my own specs.

I shoot them about the same, but th he K6 carries better, so I'll likely go back and forth till I make up my mind.

I considered a revolver for pocket carry but haven't made the jump yet. I prefer the bigger capacity of my G23, and even the XDS in .40 as well, I may not need the extra rounds, but it's better to have and not need... I may still get one for S&G though, but it will be more because I like them vs their practicality. I am partial to the 38 Special though, so while I may buy a 357, I would load 38s in it.

I carry 38s in mine occasionally, and have a Smith airweight for pocket carry.
The 38s offer quicker shot to shot recovery, and it is something I'm consider at age 70.

I put TFO sights on my 23 years ago, but the Kimber came with excellent 3 dot sights, and the 3" barrel gives an excellent sight radius.
