Soup?

Soup /k/
I want to get another gun to carry at work. I sit all day and am around cement dust all of the time so even my compact 9mm is a bit uncomfortable plus I'd rather keep cement out of it. I was thinking a snub nose revolver. The only problem is I know jack shit about revolvers. What make/model/caliber? I was think .38 special, but idk.

Also I'm I'm a moron feel free to suggest alternatives.

      No bad. Is hammerless better for a forgetaboutit pocket carry snubbie?

          second question: does there exist a magic size that could be easily concealable/confortable to sit with all day, but still long enough to fire a .357 magnum without being moronicly impractical? It doesn't -have- to be a pocket carry. Just less bulky/pokey than a px4 compact.

          Also maybe I'm a complete fricking moron and fine atmospheric dust is even worse for a revolver than a semi-auto. My gut tells me it's not, but I could be wrong.

            ok what are you looking for? something thats comfortable and concealable or something that had good accuracy at distance because there isnt a magic number for any caliber.

            2 or 3 inch SP-101. They're heavy tho and you lose a lot of velocity from the short barrel. Probably best to just get a 637/8 and call it a day.

        NTA, but I personally think so
        Basically impossible to snag the hem of your pocket with em as long as you keep the sights stock, and they're usually stupidly light
        They're peak pocket carry guns IMO, I can't think of another form of pocket pistol that doesn't suffer from an obvious drawback that the hammerless snubby works around

          the jeans I wear for work have stupid deep front pockets which are tight as frick at the top. I don't know how well a front pocket carry will help me, but this definitely doesn seem the way I want to go. I'm wondering if I could maybe go a bit bigger in a .357 cart and maybe carry in the small of my back.

    I don't know homie. I don't know revolvers at all. I have dumbass jeans with deep pockets that are tight at the top. I sit all day, I don't know for sure how much fine powder effects revolvers though I suspect it's less than semi-autos. Really I want to just buy a full sized .357 mag but that's probably impractical for this purpose so I'm looking for the best gun I can comfortably carry and I'll worry about getting a bear blaster later on because I don't need one atm.

      a full sized, or say 4+ inch revolver is not going to be very practical or comfortable to conceal all day. i dont know but personally i wouldnt get too autistic about effective range of a snub nose, many people will write how its accurate at 10 yards and if youre getting into a slug match with someone its probably going to be at a much shorter distance than almost 10 yards.

      theres plenty of 357 models snubs that are marginally bigger in some cases than a 38 snub if you just want a 357.

        true, yeah I'm getting carried away here. I just need something so I can stay strapped every day, and a .38 special snubbie is probably it. I can worry about getting a bit ass magnum revolver for the woods later, it's not what I need now. I was just being a dumbass

            Idk what this means. I guess I just buy one of the two posted ITT? And am I correct assuming they're better suited for fine dust particles?

              i mean theres heaps more than just s&w and taurus, ruger makes one, people here tend to say charter arms and rock island are decent. take your pick https://gun.deals/category/hand-guns?caliber=15

              as for being suited for dust i cant really say but your logic makes sense to me, theres certainly less mechanical failure points in a revolver than a typical semi auto. and they are simpler to clean all the important bits.

              only other thing i can think to say is if this is something you want to have in your pocket all day probably go with a light model and hammerless or shrouded, all the ones i mentioned have one like that. i personally didnt get an ultralight because i dont have to conceal that long, but my good friend got a s&w ultralight and it is surprisingly light while feeling very sturdy.

      I would think the fact that it's in your pocket would eliminate most concerns about concrete dust, If I was you I'd be way more worried about your lungs if there's really that much dust in the air you're breathing all day. Unless you wear a respirator mask and just didn't mention that. But yes revolvers would be more forgiving about dust getting in the inner working bits

    If you can find 32H&R where you live, take a look at the S&W 632UC.

    Basically they fixed the J-frame's sights and trigger, plus 1 more round and 32 is much easier to shoot. If you can't find 32, they did a 642UC also.

    Ruger LCP or LCP 2 if you want something even smaller than a snubby. It's also cheaper than most revolvers (so its easy to replace) and has great support service from Ruger who will take care of any problems it might start having.
