Light .357's will beat you up.
This is a discussion on Dreamer ~ No "shrouded" S&W snubbies in .357 under 20oz or within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; did i miss something? i do easily get cross-eyed so i'm hoping i passed by a 357 shrouded frame revolver snubbie with a 2.5 or ...
did i miss something?
i do easily get cross-eyed so i'm hoping i passed by a 357
shrouded frame revolver snubbie with a 2.5 or shorter barrel, got 2 B under 20oz
The closest i've come across is a DAO or SA/DA small exposed hammer/a 340 or 360.
Also the 649 is sort of close at 23oz, but a bit too heavy
i'd like to see a model 438/638 in 357, 14 to 18oz, and under $650
Cuz there is the .357 model 327 8shot for $1K,not shrouded, so take out 3 rds and i'll buy it for $600 pro series ...i don't want too much, do i, dreamer

I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
So how did you come to the conclusion that 20oz. was OK, but 23oz. was too heavy? I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but we sometimes give ourselves these unrealistic criteria that actually mean very little. I have a 7 shot 386 mountain light that weighs 18 oz empty. It can be harder to conceal and carry than a model 60 J-frame that weighs almost twice as much. In fact, I have leather & Kydex for that same 386 that vary more than 3oz. in weight.
I am not passionate about revolvers, but I would like to have a pre-lock S&W 649 cal .357 with shrouded hammer and a 3” barrel . I guess I am a dreamer too
BTW, I would definitely not like to shoot .357 from a 14 oz snubbie

I want a very "lite" carry
Like an M&P360 at 13.3oz empty
And have that 357 ported
Then see how bad it bites
Nothing like options to turn a decision into a process
Still tossing things around
Mag-na port and Gemini both claim that not much velocity is lost. They claim this is just a tale that is told! I don't really know, but would like to!

I had a an airweight 442 J frame in 38 special. With +P ammo that thing was NO FUN to shoot at all. I am not a small guy at 210lbs and it was just plain sucky to shoot that thing.
Shot a J-frame S&W .357 a couple months ago. Only used .38spl in it, but it was hell on my hands. And, I'm a big guy- 6'2, 300lbs and I absolutely hated it.

Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.
