Hi,



Thinking of buying a wheel gun for a CCW besides my semi-autos. These 2 are top of my list. Any opinions on these? I have medium sized hands, min 6 rds and I want a full grip, hence, no J or N frames for me. Are they both fairly easy to conceal in a OWB holster? Much difference in size/concealment between the 315 and 386?

I think the 315 would conceal better because of the 6rd cylinder, but I like the idea of having a 7 rd cylinder capable of using .357s (Model 386) when I wish to. I just can't decide.

i held a 315 yesterday here in GA it was a used gun that someone had added a crimson trace laser. it fit my hand very well but i like the option of being able to shoot 357 as well as 38
