.357 customization
 
I wanna know what I could to my Taurus .357. Like sights and making the barrel longer and how much it would cost.

Would most likely be better to trade it for a longer barreled version :rolleyes:
Sights shud not pose a problem but need to know what you have now & what you want?

My grandpa is giving me his 357 that will also shoot 38 for graduating the police academy. All I have for it is a speed loader. I don't even have a good holster for it. I'm pretty sure it has a 2 to 3 inch barrel. I'm just trying to figure out how I could make it have better accuracy

Practice, practice, practice.

That handgun (even wth the shorter barrel) can teach you a lot about accuracy. What some people put off as a inaccurate short barrel is really their inability to use the shorter sight radius.

OK I see. When we did firearms in the academy we shot the s&w m&p 9mm. What kind of recoil will the Taurus have I've never shot it.
