    Yeah, I figured derringers were their own category because of the whole two barrel thing.

    Nope, not lucky enough to carry concealed out here, but back in my native Ohio I get to whenever I go home. I would never live here voluntarily, although for a week of vacation it would be a nice place. I do get to carry a M16A4 around out here though, which when we do humps and stuff a column of 800 guys with all weapons organic to an infantry battalion marching down the road draws some looks.

    Back to snubbies, for anyone shooting one in .357 how the heck does anyone control a J frame in .357 with the stock grips? My Rossi is fine with its stock grips, but my whole hand fits them nice, I can control it much better than my 638 in rapid firing.

    Also, do all .357 snubbies have one heck of a "back blast" for lack of a better term? Like a pressure wave that goes back and to the sides and almost feels like gettin popped in the nose? Because mine does, and its appreciable.

    I have a Ruger SP101 with a 3" barrel in .357 magnum and I have not noticed this when I fired it. Maybe someone who owns a S&W J frame .357 snubby could better answer that one for you.

    I didn't get to carry the snubbie because SOMEONE decided to hog it tonight!

    Oh well, soon.

    I can't really claim it I guess. It is more "our" gun than it is "my" gun, but I think I'll be getting the most use out of it in the next couple of months.

    It does have a very nice trigger and nice sight though!

    This might be better placed elswhere(caliber debate), but as the end item is a snubbie, I thought I'd start here.

    Took the wife out shopping for her EDC today. We settled on the Ruger SP101. Now I (we) just need to decide on a caliber. I have heard good things about .327 but might want to consider .32HR mag. Any input on the difference in feel on this small revolver?
    I am not a big wheel gun fan... I don't have any specific issues with them, it's just that I was weened on 1911s and P1s.

    The .327 revolver will also chamber .32 H&R (and .32S&W and .32S&W long). I am a little surprised that Ruger still offers the 3" sp101 in .32 H&R now that the 3" .327 is out.

    This could grow into another thread.

    I'd stick with the tried and true .357. You can get 38spec or 357 anywhere, try that with the 327.

    Sixto is absolutely right on the money. I cannot find a single box of .327 Federal magnum cartridges anywhere in my neck of the woods. If any does come into the local gunshops it usually gone by noon of that day.

    This was also a concern of mine.
    Could .380 be safely fired from the .357 cylinder.
    I am really just concerned that the .38spec might be to snappy for her. She handles a full size 1911 in .45 fairly well but hates my M&P40c.
    I have to assume (I know!) that a revolver is going to transfer a lot more recoil to the shooter than an auto loader. T/F?

    Sorry to take this off topic, but she really wants the snubbie SP101 and I want her to want to shoot it. Unfortunately, I do not know anybody who owns one to borrow.

    OK, here's the pics...

    You can also see that we changed the grips on the 360.

    I think you mean to ask if a .38 can be safely fired from a .357 - answer is yes. Lots of folks shoot .38 spl in .357 magnum revolvers. The SP101 is steel frame and will probably be relatively docile with .38 spl - but there's only one way to find out how she likes it - shoot one.

    Bought a SW 642 for myself and a SW 638 for my wife this weekend. The collection just keeps getting bigger. SOOOOOOOOOO many guns, so little time.

    Hey! That's what I have; a 642 and a 442.

    Just put Pachmayr rubber grips on both and it made a big difference in shooting comfort and control.
