I recently played with the idea of picking up an SP101 in 357 mag but after some debate I decided not to because it pretty much has to be carried on the hip, I want something to carry when I cant carry my P239 in .40, so I figured a 5 shot 38 or similar sized 357 would be just the trick dropped into a pocket.
So which leads me to ask, I am interested in Taurus revolvers, apparently their reliability and QC is coming back up, and they are cheaper than Smith's.....
So which one? I am on a fairly tight budget (Sub $350) so which one do you guys recommend? Does Taurus offer a compact frame 357 that's reliable and somewhat shoot able? I wouldn’t feel under gunned with 5 CorBon DPX 38 +p's....I would consider a 357 but I'm not sure the extra power would justify all the negatives, what's your guys opinion?
So which ones do you guys recommend I here a lot of folks talking about the 85UL, what else do you guys recommend with pocket carry in mind?
