    All reports and reviews of this revolver that I have seen have been very favorable.

    If you can afford it, and are comfortable concealing it, then it would be an awesome option.

    8 rounds of 357 Magnum is hard to argue against.

    Biggest issue will probably be finding a holster to fit it.

    I agree, except for the wife's feelings on yet ANOTHER(?) gun.
    That is a fine looking revolver...niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!





    (Does that have one of those useless locks on it?)

    Do they come without one?

    Any holster for an N-frame Smith (eg, (x)29) with the correct barrel length would work...

    It would be a great HD gun and a good range gun, but for EDC or CC, not so much. The cyl. on this gun is huge. I love wheel guns and am always up for a new one. I've even looked at the snubbie, scandium version of this and it is a brick. That huge cyl. will never conceal. I still might buy one though!

    You're rather off base with that.

    I've carried my S&W 325, concealed, without issues. Good belt, good holster, and dressing around the gun makes concealing an N-frame no problem.
