My first post! I am new to this CCW thing.The first 2 weeks,I carried my Ruger SP101 (3in bbl. 357) unloaded. Well now its loaded. Also I never used a double action before.I mostly shoot a Thompson Encore 30-06 15in. bbl. and a T/C Contender 16.26 in bbl. 444 Marlin as a rifle and a pistol. Im glad I found this forum.
