S&W 360 357mag sale
Is 550$ a great price with a 50$ rebate?
It seems like it is for a .357 magnum carry gun.
Does anyone own one like it? It seems like a great gun but i read that shooting .357 out of it is torture because of the super light weight J frame.
Yeah, that is a good price. And yes, the 357 isnt something you will want to shoot a lot.
I own a 340 which is the same gun with an internal hammer. The .357 is not impossible to shoot. But at the range you will only want about one cylinder to make sure where it is shooting at. And will probably take a break afte r the 2nd or 3rd round. I could shoot regular +p 38 in it all day with no issues. Also do not go below a 125 grain bullet in the magnum loads, it will cause cylinder erosion according to Smith. Nice light pocket gun though..I havent regretted mine at all.
Do you guys know if this model 60 is that much bigger?
I really want it as small an powerful as possible. But small mostly.
Its not any bigger, but it is much heavier.
One last question. Do you think that this gun is more concealable than a walther pps?
The pps is a bit thinner, but alot bigger.
Probably a little easier conceal but with it weighing as much as most Glocks you definitely want a belt holster, either OWB or IWB.
It's only 13 ounces. The model 60 is 22 ounces. Glock 26 is 20 ounces. But it's thicker and I can't buy glocks in massachusetts.

I carry a G30 all the time. Proper holster & belt go a long way to making even large pistols easy to carry.

I want a fully concealed pistol in my jeans. There is no way my g30 will just disappear. To each there own. I love my glock, but don't want to carry it everyday.

Even if it's only comfortable with .38+p. It's nice to have the option.
As far as recoil goes, I don't mind. I'm pretty big and have never used a gun I couldn't fire one handed. That includes my friends .50 magnum hand cannon. It's really like shooting slugs out of a pistol. I'm not sure what the point is of the .50 cal. But it sure is fun to shoot stuff with.
I am 6'3" and 285. I could not shoot this one handed with any confidence. I will carry .357 in it but practice with .38. I didnt think it would be bad, and it isnt completely unmanageable, but it is the most FELT reoicl in my hand I have experience out of a small handgun. Dont get me wrong I would still buy it if I were you.
Just wanted to update you on the pistol.
I received the gun and brought it to the range to shoot 100 rounds.
I'm proud to say that the recoil was not nearly as bad as I was lead to believe. Even with the tiny stock grip it was manageable. Actually it was delightful. I wanted to just keep shooting.
To put it in perspective, we all agreed that my Gock 30 had far more kick and was much less manageable even with a bigger grip.
I can't believe I ever thought shooting .38's would ever be tough haha. I even shot some 38+p and 357 rounds and it was still not bad at all.
The single action trigger was amazing. And it was surprisingly accurate. I could not be happier with this gun.
10 yards standing:
15 yards, one handed, then kneeling(but my first couple went way wide because I couldn"t get comfortable), Then I dialed in kneeling.
Glock 30 for comparison.
Sory for the pics, there was no good sunlight yesterday because of the rain.
Woohoo! Just got in the new grips as I'm typing this. Now it should be an even more pleasure to shoot.
