    I 've shot my security six one handed all the time. I guess I am old if you can't shoot it one handed it's too much gun for you and when I bought it that was
    not going to be the case.I changed the wood grips to pachmeyer which helps
    a great deal.I also have 44spl Charter House bulldog which is a hoot to shoot
    one handed.

    .357 Magnum one-handed

    I fire my .357 Magnum one-handed most of the time. I am more accurate that way. Less accurate with my left hand than with my right hand or both hands, but right hand alone is my most accurate. It's a Ruger GP101 with 4" barrel.
    I also shoot my semiautos one-handed quite a bit.

    Since all I had for a long time was a Colt .357, I shot it a lot one handed. Not something you do everyday but it did help me learn how to control the gun.

    My 9mm feels like a .22 after shooting the .357!

    SP101, I don't have any trouble with strong (right) hand and full .357 loads.
    Not as "solid" in left, but can hold onto it okay. It would be sufficient at likely real defensive distances, seems.

    LOL I had a S&W 19 subbie several years ago that was stolen. I enjoyed shooting .357's in it with no problem. I recently bought a 340PD. After shooting some .38 I decided to try some of the .357 158's that I had left from my model 19.

    Like the little girl said to the little boy while looking in their diapers, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

    I've shot .357 Mag (used to own a 4" S&W M19) one handed many times, including snubbies, as well as .44's. Not bad at all. IMO the "comfort" factor comes not so much from the caliber or even the barrel length, but the grip configuration. I have large hands, so as long as I can get a decent grip I'm okay with just about anything. Give me something tiny (like the Derringer shown above) and I'm sure it wouldn't be all that pleasant. But neither is shooting a tiny .380 Kel-Tec that weighs less than the loaded magazine (at least for me).

    I'd rather shoot a .357 one handed all day than shoot a magnum rifle all day, that's for sure.

    I shoot full .357 loads all the time in my SP 101 snubbie with Trausch grips. I admit that I do use a Past glove most of the time, but that just lets me play a little longer.

    In the late 70s, I had a S&W model 27 with a 6" barrell and shooting .357 mag single handed was like shooting a .22..........well, not quite.

    Good point about frip and hand size. I have small hands with short fat fingers and I have no trouble with the P3AT at all. WHen I got it I was concerned about recoil and found that it was not bad at all, maybe even disappointing.
