Also just wanted to add one thing that i found in my research.. First off im looking at buying a SNUB NOSE just to let everyone know small and compact. In my research i found for example 2 inch snubnose revolver shooting corbon 165 grain self defence ammo in .44 Special was shooting 860 fps velocity. The exact same round 165 grain out of a 2 inch barrel .44 MAGNUM was doing 950 fps!!! In a snuby theirs not much difference it seems in power! Also if i start reloading 44 special i can get even better results. Not saying thats what im going with cause i still might go 357 mag but just some numbers i found along the way!
