Top Tips for the “Snubby” Revolver for Minimal Everyday Carry!

Whether You are new to shooting or not, most of us have heard of the Snubnose revolver. You may or may not have the affection for shooting or carrying one but, they do have their purpose.

They actually have been the most popular type of revolver for concealed carry or what I like to say “light” everyday carry for decades!

Trending on Those Who Are to be Pitied Most

Now, I have been a big fan of Smith and Wesson revolver’s over the years. But, before some get their feathers ruffled, I would like to mention Some other very reliable Manufacturers for Snubby or EDC Revolvers that have done well in the industry: Colt, Ruger, and Taurus.

Minimal or “Light” Everyday Carry

The Reason I put this video together was to share some insight for For those who are wanting to carry a gun that’s a little lighter, maybe less noticeable, easier to wield, not as bulky with a holster and works with their lifestyle and fashion.

Whatever Your reason I have found that my snubnose revolver is not only quite effective for defense but also very easy to carry regardless of my wardrobe.

My Typical EDC

Let me start by saying that I typically carry a Sig Sauer P365XL or a Glock 19, but there are those days depending on my wardrobe or activity that I prefer to rock my Snubby for convenience. I know I won’t have all the capacity of the others but with consistent training and great defensive ammunition I can be confident.

Sidenote it has taken me years to shoot consistently, confidently, and on-demand with a Snubnose revolver. I didn’t even carry it on my body for running until I put over 3000 rounds down range (personal conviction).

Learning Curves or “Challenges”

Please understand they do have a steeper learning curve than that of semi automatics.
Some Of the challenges you will face will come from trigger and hammer manipulation (if you have a hammered model), Loading and reloading techniques, recoil management and grip handling. These are most of the differences you will have to overcome.

Evaluate Yourself

I’d also like to mention that whether you are shooting it for the first time or wanting to carry a snubnose revolver; You should evaluate your own abilities and your level of dexterity for safe gun handling.

I’ve found over the years teaching students from all ages and walls of life that some students have issues manipulating a hammer, a harder trigger pull and opening and closing the cylinder for loading or extracting.

My Advice

My recommendation would be to go test drive some! Rent one at a range, shoot one of your buddy’s Snubby’s, even take a class with one to see if it’s a good fit! So, should you decide to pull the trigger and buy one, train with it, like your life depended on it, find a holster that works for you. (See my EDC tips video here)

The Snubnose revolver has been around for a long time and all though not as popular as semi autos they are a viable solution for “light” or minimal everyday carry…

Guinness World Record for U.S. Presidential Lies

Lies are sometimes necessary, but some are gross manipulations of reality



Are you a conservative business person? Then check out the Red Referral Network and partner with Dinesh D’Souza by clicking the banner below:

In its non-stop attempt to portray Donald Trump as the most despicable person ever, the Left slanders him daily in ways unprecedented in American history. If Trump makes an exaggeration, which he is prone to do, he’s called a liar. In office, when Trump achieved anything of note, the Left cherry-picked minor aspects that could be criticized and elevated beyond their stature.

Trending on Those Who Are to be Pitied Most

Those on the Right recognize the deeper, universal truths that Trump espouses. Hence, they attend his rallies by the tens of thousands. Hardly anyone is eager to attend a Joe Biden rally. Why?

All Built on Lies

Joe Biden, beyond his word salad bumbling, is an incredible liar, covering for Barack Obama, his master. Virtually everything that Biden and his press secretary say is a lie. Unsurprisingly, public confidence in the presidency and today’s sycophant journalism is at an all-time low.

His agency heads consistently lie: Merrick Garland, Alejandro Mayorkas, Christopher Wray, Pete Buttigieg, and Antony Blinken, among many others. Take your pick.

The precedent for the Biden Administration’s lies is the administration of Barack Obama, for whom Biden served as vice president. Obama taught Biden the best of lying techniques.

To Lie and To Swerve

Lies are sometimes necessary, but some are gross manipulations of reality. A brief look at presidential lies since 1968 puts Obama’s lies in context.

LBJ said that none of our boys would die in foreign soil, and 54,000 Americans died in Vietnam. Nixon made many statements, most memorably, “I’m not a crook,” yet he sought to steal the private records of enemies and was exposed by the Watergate scandal.

George Bush senior said, “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Then in office, he raised taxes which, rolling over in his grave, he likely regrets. Bill Clinton told so many lies, you’d need a book to catalog them all. Among his most famous is “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

George W. Bush, faultily advised, made concerning statements about Iraq. Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s handler, said he’d have the most transparent administration in history. Alas, his was the most secretive: spying on enemies, journalists, political opponents, and everyday American citizens.

The Grand Wizard of Big Lies

Obama touted that he’d restore trust in government. Instead, he opened the doors to the opposite. Obama said the stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs. It did not. He said, “I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.” The jobs he created were low-wage and low-level. Obama told hardworking entrepreneurs, “You didn’t build that,” which offended business owners everywhere.

Obama weaponized federal agencies to persecute and prosecute Conservatives, so it was hardly a transparent administration. He insisted the IRS was not targeting anyone, but under his henchwoman, Lois Learner, the IRS targeted the Tea Party and Conservatives in general. Lerner’s department harassed, intimidated, and fined them, and diminished their impact on voters in the 2012 election.

Obama proclaimed that a spontaneous riot based on a movie sparked the attack on the Benghazi consulate, which he knew was completely untrue. The attack was well coordinated and planned in advance.

No Stopping Him

Obama announced that the public will have five days to review every bill which lands on his desk. Then, he hustled through some of the most expensive boondoggles in U.S. history. With the introduction of Obamacare, Obama said that you can keep your family doctor and that premiums will be lowered by $2,500. This was utterly false.

Obama stated that whistleblowers would be protected in his administration. Then, he offered no protection. Obama said we’ll get back every dime we use to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest. This did not happen.

He emphasized that, if elected, he would end the war in Iraq and Afghanistan within nine months. He did not. He claimed he would close Guantanamo within six months. It did not happen. He claimed ignorance about the “fast and furious” gun-running scheme to arm Mexican drug cartels. He knew. Obama proclaimed that he would bridge the gap between black and white Americans. Actually, he increased it in ways that set racial relations back 50 years.

The Biggest Lie of All

The biggest lie that Obama ever uttered occurred on January 20th, 2009, when he said, “I, Barack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.” Twelve years later, Biden did the same.
