    It appears the 340 cylinder is about 39 mm in length.
    Nice little Easter egg for a backdrop. Mine's in the bookcase.

    I was sending Brent photos of Gaylord’s drawing from the ankle holster. It’s interesting he kept the revolver on the outside.

    Might have been due to his body shape or mobility issues. A box cut suit hides a lot, but an outside ankle rig is a noisemaker and hard on the gun.

    There is also the consideration of who is carrying on the ankle. Cop carrying outside a duty boot is different from NPE civilian use in professional workplace attire. Never been the former, but have ankle carried while being the latter, and offside ankle on the inside seems to work best, is easier to hide, and gives you more options to fix your trousers with your strong-side foot if something happens to upset the drape of your pants and reaching down would be conspicuous.

    Gaylord was a pioneer in concealment. Funny how 90% of the youtube culture would not recognize his name (so much for the concept of legacy). Interesting the one pictured #2. AIWB.

    I will add simply that an athletic physique allows a great deal more latitude in clothing selection and concealment. For me...if I need to conceal in an NPE, a pocket, tucked in AIWB holsterless, or even off body carry (who searches a bag of chips?) makes more sense than ankle carry. These are things that can be tested I suppose. Deeper concealment means less speed in access...but is a pocket any less concealed than an ankle? Understood the passing through secured areas thing...and that makes much more sense...but is that more a Transition Carry than a Primary Carry? Perhaps it is. Think, for example, of placing an airweight J under a blob of nachos before wiping it off and placing it in its proper place. Nacho carry is not a primary method, but rather a subterfuge to pass through a barrier.

    Similar, and easily worn more to the center line. Note the neutral cant.

    My experience is that short guns in AIWB want to jump out of the holster if you throw a vigorous punch.

    For the record, F*** the youtube culture.

    .
    Which is even contrary to the propellerheads, we refused to make AIWB holsters for Glock 26 pistols and told them to get one for the G17.

    Colt has the worst marketing and new product development of any company, of any kind, anywhere.

    With that said, any love for the new Cobras or whatever they're called? They've been out for a couple of years now and I've seen surprising little about them anywhere.

    At risk of being branded forever as a gun hipster, I have always like Colt snubs.

    If we shoot j-frames from bags of Doritos it’ll be called the V-Drill.

    This all goes back to SI teaching real world experience.

    The first time I ever shot through a garment was on the range at Complete Pistol. It wasn’t the last, but real world was easier having done it before.
