here it is

Wanna see the gun I intend to buy? There's a picture right here.

That is a sweet pistol.


I had one of those (actually two, but only one was a four inch) that I sold in a fit of stupidity several years agone. It was a dandy little carry gun.

If you shoot .357's in it, make sure to wear ear protection. It'll make your ears ring. .38's aren't too bad about it.

Personally, I like stainless.

When I got out of law school, I bought myself a 7-shot Smith & Wesson .357 in satin stainless with a 6" barrel. As a graduation present. I wanted a Colt, but due to the stupid sons of bitches who sued the gun companies, they were not available new at that time.

If you shoot .38's with a .357, you are a total pansy. It won't teach you a damn thing about shooting .357 ammunition.

There is nothing wrong shooting 38's in a 357 mag. It is cheaper to use them and they are also good for target practice. I can kill you with a 38, just as easy as a 357. You don't know what pussies are, Cat.

Mine has a 4 5/8 inch barrel, and an extra cylinder for shooting 9mm. I'm looking to buy another to do Cowboy Action Shooting

Yep, got one, .357 mag six inch. Oh, and yes it will make your ears ring!

You lose a lot of velocity in a short barrel, so actually one of the best self defense loads for a snubbie .357 is a..38 with an inverted wadcutter bullet. That's what I carried in my 2 3/4 Secruity-Six for years.

I realize a four inch barrel is not a snub nose, I'm just making an observation.

Stainless or blued doesn't matter to me, I can rust either one of 'em!

Not a bad gun at all.

I don't like that kind of grip, as they tend to turn in your hand easily.

I like the more modern revolver grip, like on the S&W model 13.. I would recommend a 6" barrel if you don't care about concealed, otherwise get a shorty.

What's great about revolvers is that they cannot jam, ever. Bad news is re-loading time is longer than an auto.
