    You can mail it to me, I will try it, and return it when I am done with it!

    Thanks and I appreciate it. I was at the range today shooting my Kahr PM9 and the guy next to me, about 60 years old was shooting his only gun he owns, a SIG Mosquito, I have the same 22 for my step-son an we struck up a conversation, he asked my opinion on some 9MM's he wanted to check out and although a Kahr PM9 was not on the list we spoke about, but the only gun I was shooting this day, I told him to run a magazine through it (it isnt the best example of "normal" recoil in the 9MM service range of guns we were talking about), but he enjoyed it a alot and was very thankful for the opportunity to shoot a bigger caliber for the first time......made me feel good to help him out and be neighborly.....always a good time.

    Smith and Wesson 340 PD. Extremely light weight for concealed carry and comes in 357. Its a BEAST! My buddy has one and we shot it the other day at the range. The thing is not recoil friendly. It goes bang in a BIG way.

    I have shot my share of the smaller, lighter snubbies and that is why I decided to go with the larger K frame.....a bit more heft to offset the kick. I looked at the 340, a very nice gun, just afraid I will not enjoy the snap.

    Yeah your right, its a lot of money for the 340 PD to not really like it. After about 6 shots with the 357 rounds, my right hand was stinging a little. The recoil is a little more than my Smith 460 XVR!

    How about this one:
    Smith and Wesson Model 327 M&P R8 - 8 Shot, .357 Magnum Revolver

    Looks pretty sweet. I held one but never shot it.

    It is a 5" and MSRP of $1400......longer than I wanted and more pricey, but a heck of a looking gun. I am really trying to stay between 2 1/2 and 3", for concealed carry, but with a large enough frame (not too large) that the recoil will be tolerable.....so I think the K frames meet that criteria.

    Again, thanks for the info.

    My vote goes for the SP101 DAO 2 1/4"
    If you fire a Double Tap round out of this little tank, you will be very impressed!

    I had this exact gun and sold it a couple of years ago....for some reason, it didn't float my boat, and I want a 6 shooter, so I think the S&W 66 fits the bill a little better, but "YES" the Ruger SP-101 is a great, strong gun!

    Thanks.

    My favorite revolver to carry is my 2.5" Model 66-1. It is surprisingly easy to carry and blends in well with a good OWB holster.

    That is pretty much exactly what I want and have made some inquires into a few I have found on the web. Great pic, thanks.

    I have this exact model, except my grips are the Pachmyr Compact grips, and your right it is very easy to conceal carry in an OWB holster, even under a t-shirt. I'm saving up for a IWB holster for it, which is my prefered method of carry.

    Here is how I normally carry it under a normal carry shirt for me. Hogue monogrip sure makes a great shooter.

    I have one of these on the way myself. I also purchased a spring set from Wolff and a new version cylinder release. The 65 I bought is pre-lock, with the old style release. I'm also bidding on some grips that look like Secret Service Grips.

    I intend on getting the cylinder cut for moon clips, as soon as I can. I'd also like a red insert in my front sight one day.

    I have been looking at some and am stuck on the improtance of a pinned and cut model over a newer one....does it make that much of a difference?
