  • Surveyor Seven Do you ladies carry extra ammo ? If so how much and what is your preferred carry position / method ? If I remember correctly neither of you carry a revolver any longer, but Julie when you did carry a J frame, I would like to know how you carried extra ammo, my wife is considering getting a concealed carry permit now. She will either carry the Mdl 36 she has now or I’ll get a new J frame like a 442 with moon clip. Thanks
  • Dustin - What and how do you carry? Tips for ladies on how to carry on body.
  • Shelly Ray what is your preference of carry..inside or outside the waistband? Front, back or side? Does it change with the seasons (clothing differences)

  • Kathy - My biggest obstacle is getting past the ingrained "cold range" mindset. It "feels" so wrong to be loaded anywhere but on the firing line. Any suggestions for overcoming this psychological barrier?
