With the long-awaited arrival of Fall temps and lower humidity in my area over recent days, it occurred to me this evening that my S&W 27-2 and its Kramer Leather “Thomas Perfectionist” should be taken for an initial carry out-and-about. I’d planned to hold-off on this until November, having spent time over the summer warming-up with this gun both at the range and with dry-fire / snap-cap practice. First run was just a short hop to the gas station and back, so hardly a long haul here. Just the same, the Kramer felt good and carried the weight of the five-inch 27 well - that is, both the holster and an A&G Gunleather belt. I’m soon to try out a Hogue Monogrip on this revolver as well as continued practice with both speed-loaders and speed-strips. I’m arguably more comfortable with the latter, as I use those exclusively with a J-frame that I carry often. I’m going to keep working with both to decide on a favorite. I would have taken a pic of the gun “on,” but had already taken all the stuff off before getting the bright idea to post this ha-ha. This gun doesn’t conceal as well as a 1911, has a shade less ammo onboard, and loads quite differently - just the same, I really like it. It most likely won’t replace any 1911 in my lineup, but I also don’t want to just let it sit around unused. More to come as the journey continues. Some of you know that I flirted not long ago with selling this piece. I’m glad now that I didn’t, but I want to see where I stand after spending some more time actually carrying it and shooting it further.
