    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Neither, I don't trust hollow point ammo in a snub. If it were me I would try to find some standard lswc ammo. The flat face and sharp shoulders help ensure full caliber holes, and also good pennetration. And in cold weather climates I always opt for pennetration over expantion. Do your part and the ammo will do its job. That's just my 2 cents.

    At the moment I'm using Federal P38N LSWHP 125 grain +P .38 spl.
    For .357 I use Federal 125 grain JHP 357B or Remington R357MI

    I sometimes use the Federal 158 grain P38G SWCHP, but feel something is lost in the short barrel.
