    I agree with you. I've got other stuff that I shoot for fun. I only got the .357 for one reason, a lot of gun in a very light and concealable package. For that purpose, I think it's a good choice. For recreational shooting, there are a ton of guns that are better.

    I'm still in love with my 642 in a Nemesis or Mika. I've carried it now for about 6 years, splitting time with an even bottom feeding XD, but often together. The 642's aluminum frame is showing some chararcter with holster wear, but that is comforting in and of itself. Great little tool.

    I've enjoyed this thread for years...

    I'm still carrying around my .38 LCR. Being winter time it sits in my pocket with a 9mm on the belt. I am thinking about adding a SP101 to the line-up. 3" with DA/SA capability.

    Nothing beautiful, but it does it's job and it does it well.

    Well... Nyclad ammo isn't something I would want launched in my direction by any means, but in the last, what, 30 years... .38 spl. Defense ammo has reeeeaaaallllly come quite a LONG way! May I recommend a box of .38 Spl +P Gold Dot SB, or (if available) Federal HST or Winchester Ranger for the little snub?

    The perp won't notice the difference in what the latest wonder cartridge was just used to put holes in his hide. The 38 Special has been putting bad guys down for a century. Don't discount the old loads just because they are old does not mean they can't still kill you. Just like a lot of old folks I know.

    That's what you will be hoping when you come face to face with the darkest evil, on the darkest day of your life! And you are armed with a five or six shot revolver and a 30-year old defense ammo design. It may work out for you. Or not.

    You must not have read my post and understood it.

    My point is that if you seek out ammunition to defend your life with at the darkest moment of your life, and you only have five or six rounds to do it with, it just makes sense to select the best available, rather than seek out an old school solution because it's "cool" that it happens to be from the same bygone era that the firearm design is from.

    Some revolvers still have some sensible applications as a modern defense tool. My belief is that when employing a revolver (this includes all firearms) it makes sense to maximize the effectiveness of the tool. That's all.

    When it comes to defending your life, choose whatever tools you wish... it's your life on the line, not mine.

    I understood perfectly, just don't happen to agree. It's the man not the tool that determines the outcome.

    No problem, ctr. You do what you do and let the chips fall where they may.

    My S&W 19-3 2 1/2" .357. I shoot mostly 38spl + P in it but it will handle the magnum loads. Although shown with the original wood grips, I carry it with Pachmayrs. 1974 vintage.
