Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- I love revolvers as they are a tried and true design, simple to use and easy to maintain, with just enough capacity and caliber to get the job done.
As a firearms instructor I am asked all the time by my students, “What is the best concealed carry revolvers?”
My top five picks for the best concealed carry revolvers for reliable self defense include the five following wheelguns:
- Ruger SP101 357 Mag, 2.25″ Revolver
- Smith & Wesson 642 Handgun 38 Special Revolver
- Ruger LCR-LG 38 Spl+P Revolver with Crimson Trace Lasergrips
- S&W M&P 340 Revolver
- Taurus Judge Public Defender Polymer Revolver
