Everyday, I get requests from readers to recommend a good handgun to carry concealed. With more and more states now allowing citizens to exercise their God-given and Constitutionally-guaranteed right to self protection without fear of government prosecution, more people are now carrying firearms. That is a good thing. Most new pistol packers, however, choose a handgun that is too large to comfortably carry on a daily basis. After packing the big gun for a few days, they start to leave it at home, or in the truck, only carrying it when they think they might really need it. The first rule of a gunfight is to have a gun.
The only thing I trust more than my Glock 19 is this five shot revolver. I grew up shooting my dad’s stainless .357 and I was hooked, so much so I had to get my own. The Smith & Wesson 340 is the ultimate concealed weapon that I would recommend to anyone looking for an easy to learn and pocket-friendly pistol. One reason I selected this revolver because it has the ability to fire from my pocket due to a shrouded hammer making it snag free, the cylinder will also not grab any fabric like a slide would from a Glock 43 or Xds.
So I have been hooked on and obsessed with a Smith and Wesson model 340pd revolver in .357 Magnum with a Scandium frame, Titanium cylinder and the high Viz front sight. i want a super ultralight carry revolver and at under 12oz it fits the bill in spades whill packing a major punch. Any one own one? Are they worht the $$$? I can pick one up for arround $700.
