Fond of pocket magnums, author Clair Rees writes, “I find myself toting shrouded .357 Mag snubnosed revolvers more often than not. I dislike carrying a bulkier, heavier handgun on my hip.”

In his round-up, the author puts the Taurus 650SS, Ruger LCR, and Smith & Wesson’s Model 340PD through their paces. “The little .357 Mag revolvers tuck nicely into the pocket of my jeans, where they ride all but unnoticeably,” Rees explains. “I’m barely aware I’m carrying a gun, which means I’m more likely to have one when it’s needed.” Read the full story in the Fall 2014 issue of Personal Home Defense, available on newsstands and digitally on October 15, 2013.
