    I carry a 2 1/2" S&W 686, personally I'd never carry .357 for SD....Way too much flash bang whallop! Not to mention the hearing damaged!!

    Great fun at the range though!Here's my 13 year old letting off some WWB .357

    If someone will not shoot .357"s, but ONLY shoot .38 spl., then IMO it isn't too smart to buy the .357 revolver when they sell the .38 spl. revolver.( you know, .38 spl. revolver=.38 spl. ammo ONLY)
    And, IMO, one who will shootONLY .38 spl. and buys a .357 to shoot them in, isn't too smart.There is a GOOD REASON why they make .38 spl. revolvers, could it be to shoot .38 spl. ONLY bullets?
    I would be real careful about statements like this. Who are you to say someone shouldn't carry 38 special rounds in a .357 Revolver? Did you ever stop and think that the extra weight of the 357 revolver allows less recoil and faster second shot placement? That sure sounds like a very smart decision and one grounded in real life shooting expierence and not from , I am going to leave it at that. Think about it.

    It would be hard to find a new 38 spl in anything other than snubby. I sure someone probable makes a 4 inch or 6 inch 38 spl, I just haven't noticed one in quite awhile.

    357 Magnum hollow points, 125 gr. Maunufacture is unimportant at a bullet exiting at roughly 1350 FPS.
    You do not not even need to hit the bad guy, the muzzle flash will blind them, the shockwave will knock them down and stun them, and the sound wave will break their ear drums!!!!!
