    Who owns a 4" Wheelgun in 38 or 357?

    Seems like everyone has at least one in their arsenal! Even the most die hard semi fans I know have at least one 3" or 4" wheelgun. That is what I grew up shooting and i still love them! Over the years I have had many and sold them. Right now I have a S&W 620 7 shot 357 and a LCR. I may also pick up a 5" 27 one of these days. My 620 is my camp/fishing gun and sits on my nightstand at night.

    I purchased a Colt Trooper Mark III .357 mag. with a 4 inch barrel back in the early 1980s, along with a Bianchi basket weave deerskin lined belt holster. I still have it and sometimes carry it, particularly in the colder months in SC when a top coat works. Had a trigger job done on it back in the 80s and it still shoots smooth and accurate.

    So far just one 4-inch .38, but there are 4 2-inch .38s and a 6-inch .357 to keep him company.

    I cut my teeth on a 4 inch Model 10-6. Sold it to a friend and bought a six inch Trooper Mark III. It was nice, but just didn't feel right to me. I traded that in on an Ohio Highway Patrol marked four inch S&W 681. Feels like an old friend.

    .38 yes, of course.... .357, had to go to a 6 inch and scope............ but of course, I don't carry that so much as keep it in the truck.....

    Speaking of which, anyone got a good bead on where to get (real) standard .38 rounds (not Super or +P). Thanks.

    Cabelas, Bass Pro, Sportsman's Warehouse, Wal-Mart. I can usually find the Win 130 gr FMJ or the American Eagle equivalent without looking hard.

    Yep. I'm quite fond of the 4-inch K-Frame Smith & Wesson revolver. Still heavily use the Model 10-6 that was the first handgun I ever acquired. I never have warmed up to the 3-inch quite to the extent that so many do these days. It'd be embarrassing to admit to the exact number of 4-inch K-Frames are on the place.

    3" Smith and Wesson Model 13 in .357 Magnum, nickel finish. Waiting on wood grips coming in the mail.

    Sweet carrying gun in this holster.

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
