What about a used pistol? That J&G place has a couple of snubbies that are used: Smith & Wesson model 64 38Spl 2in, Stainless, Bobbed, DAO. Very good condition S&W 38 Taurs Model 941 UltraLight, 22Mag, 2in barrel. Excellent condition Taurus 941 .22 magnum

I've heard good things about J&G, but i haven't bought from them myself. I'd bet you could find some other used snubbies if that is an option you'd consider.

There is also that pretty lil Taurus snubby in the classifieds today.

how is firing a .357 out of a half inch barrel better than firing a .38 out of a 6 inch barrel? Its nice to be able to fire both rounds but lets not exagerate:

I'm going to make estimates without exaggerating on percentages,and explain why I would rather have a snub nose in .38 rather than .357.Lets say that 33% of a .357 round's energy is lost by firing it out of a snub,as where maybe only 20% of a .38's energy is lost by firing a .38 out of a snub.I hate to buy a .357 that I will be shooting .38s out of mostly,and to know if I shoot .357s,i'm wasting alot more.I just think a .357 should stay in it's role as a large framed 4"+ gun,and a .38 makes a better snub.
