Um, as a newbie, I am um, a little scared the thing might blow up in my face or something. Wanna talk me out of that? Thanks.
I carry the same handgun sometimes, and have found it to be a lot of fun shooting and carrying. Just a small word of advice though, even though it says it can handle +p .38 ammo I have read that some people have found cylinder bulge after shooting the +p's so I don't take the chance myself and only shoot the non +p ammo.
True story, one day coming out of Wal-Mart with my son a cop seen the bulge under my shirt and asked what I was carrying? I told him old fashion, and he said old fashion what? I said snub-nosed .38 Spl. He rolled over laughing, and said that he also was old fashion and carried the same thing off duty.
