    Another option to look at (I've held them but never shot one) is a Chiappa Rhino Chiappa Firearms
    It's sort of a Franken revolver. The big difference is that the barrel is aligned with the bottom cylinder instead of the top. The net effect is that instead of torquing upward when fired like all normal revolvers, it's inline with your arm and pushes straight back. It's also expensive.

    Now for a small bit of heresy:

    A Ruger SP101 3" barrel in .327 magnum!
    A full up .327 mag load is over 500 ft-lbs. Similarly to a .357, you can step down to lighter .327 mag loads, down again to .32 magnum loads, and down again to plain .32 loads. A vanilla .32 in the heavy SP101 is so light of a recoil you'd think it was a pop gun. You also get 6 rounds. Yes it's a somewhat new/screwball round, but so too was the .357 when it was introduced. Just a thought!

    Just buy a Ruger SP101 with the 3 inch barrel. Then you can shoot both.

    You have already had an excellent tutorial on the 38/357 caliber platform.

    You can also go here, Snubby size comparison ,for a set of pics of some model size comparisons. They're not great pics, but I had not seen them all displayed together in one thread before.

    Here, let me entice you some more...
