In all honesty, when it comes to concealed carry, I personally tend to go with a semi-auto. It’s just what I am accustomed to, and what I began with. However, one specific revolver I have fallen in love with and would consider carrying is the Kimber K6s DASA. With this revolver, Kimber has taken its proven K6s system and incorporated a double-action/single-action trigger (DA/SA) trigger mechanism. This allows you to carry six .357 Magnum or .38 Special rounds in a super-compact envelope, but now you can cock the hammer for SA fire or leave it down for a DA trigger pull.
Kimber K6s DASA Details
The Kimber is simple yet elegant and strong. “Sexy and badass” sounds cliché, but it’s the best description I have for this gun. And I was surprised when it came time to shoot it at the range. The gun felt like it was made for me—something I hadn’t felt with a revolver before. This is partially because of the K6s’ balance. The 3-inch barrel on my test gun allows for accurate, precise shooting while the heft helps manage felt recoil, even with stiff .357 Magnum rounds. The three-finger walnut grips are attractive and ergonomic as well. The three-dot sights enable quick sight acquisitions and good accuracy. After firing six rounds at 10 yards and producing a 1.5-inch group, all I could say was, “Again!”
Of course, I shoot for a living and train a lot. But compared to other revolvers, the Kimber K6s DASA will help you bring your A-game to the table. This is a well-made revolver that works with you, not against you. The 3-inch barrel might be harder to conceal for some, but Kimber offers a 2-inch-barreled version as well. It’s just an issue of finding the gun that’s right for you. And this gun is well worth the investment. I might still be a semi-auto girl at heart, but don’t be surprised if you catch me rocking the Kimber K6s DASA.
