I'm currently looking to transition my carry gun......again. It seems like a never ending circle to get to something you feel comfortable with.
I started with a SIG P239 in .40, then I went to a S&W 640 in 38+p, now I have a SIG P250 in 9mm, I really want to transition back to a wheel gun, I just feel more comfortable with them, I also shoot them better.
I really want something more than 38+p and I donít really want to pocket carry anymore, so I think a K or L frame Smith would be exactly what I'm looking for. The local shop has a S&W 386 Night Guard that I'm interested in, also a friend of mine has a S&W 396 44 spl, that he is interested in selling.
Now to the hard part. Choosing. I like the 357 mag for obvious reasons, but I'm concerned about it's muzzle blast and flash. I like the huge size of the 44 special but bullets are so expensive and it's only 5 shots versus 6 in the 386, 686, or 66.
So what do you guys think?
