I can carry the revolver on my hip but not the SKS.
I lug it around because it will destroy anything that needs destroying in my area, is more powerful than my CAR out to 75-100 yards (which we all agree is where defensive power is most important), it's less than half the weight of the CAR, and I don't have to "actively" carry it through the woods all day; it just rides in the holster all by itself, not banging around on a sling or occupying my hands the way a rifle does.223 fan said:...waste $1500 on a 3 lb clunk, lug it around for nothing...
what's funny, is I will often carry a Smith 25-5 in .45 (long) colt on my hip while bow hunting. It is not a burden at all, not even in the backcountry where you have to carry all your gear. Sounds like you have a problem carrying much of anything. Maybe you should hit the gym?to lug around the monster revolver (or it's of no value whatsoever). If u use a vehicle, u could have had an SKs, and FAR more effectiveness than the revolver offers, for 10% as much money.
