I'd say it's a toss up. Concealed a 4" Taurus 65 in an off brand belt scabbard, using an untucked, unbuttoned cover shirt. I love carrying that wheelgun but boy it get's heavy. I also carry a Beretta 92 every Wednesday night to my IDPA shoot, but I cheat and use a 5.11 vest for concealment. (To make the Beretta conceal carry valid, sometimes I do stop to get gas and Gatorade on the way.)

i carry my Springfield XD45acp 5" in a shoulder rig about half the time. I've been eyeing a Taurus model 65 4" at a local shop, I'd probably carry that in a shoulder rig as well, or a nice IWB if I can find one.

usually i pocket or IWB carry my Beretta 21a, i'd like to step it up to either the Taurus 65 or a 605, either one in .357 mag.

I can conceal a full size 1911 IWB with an untucked tee shirt no problem.

I've talked before about having a 3" N frame (629) that I liked the holster better than the gun. With a good cover garment I was able to do it. And for the bonus points, here's a pic from when I had it on Gunbroker.

What kind of holster is that Steely? Something like that would be perfect for my 3 inch GP-100. (It's in a Bianchi Black Widow right now)

Milt Sparks model PMK. I haven't checked recently but last time I stopped by the site there was a 6 month back-log.

Lightning Arms Sports does stock Sparks holsters but there is a mark up (I'd give a link but I'm on my phone right now). I've never heard anything but great service from Lightning Arms. There's a good chance that if you email them asking about what you are looking for, you'll have a reply before you head to bed.

A side note. I've looked for a cheaper knock-off of the PMK ever since. No luck.

I've successfully carried a full sized (5inch barrel) PT101SS in a
shoulder holster, with outer garments. No problem. ;D

I used to have a 4" S&W model 29 that I carried a lot. Should have kept that one. Frank

30 years ago I carried a 6" S&W ( forget the model ) IWB once in awhile when I had
to go to North Minneapolis. (Plymouth Avenue for those of you from around here)
Now, the largest is pretty much an XD or Glock 4".

Ruger GP100 6" 357 magnum with two spare speed loaders in a vertical shoulder holster. I felt invincible with that rig and it concealed remarkably well under a light jacket. I traded that gun in for a S&W M686 4" 357 magnum that has a better action and clears leather a little smoother.
