I have a Taurus 605 with almost 5000 rounds through it and maybe 2000 of those were .357 magnum.

No problems has been the most trouble-free gun I've ever owned.

See, I have a real problem with these types of statements. I'm not a big guy (6'0" 175lbs), but I've been wrenching on stuff for the past 10 years, both as a mechanic and currently as a machinist. Anyone who's done those types of jobs knows that you use your hand as a hammer daily. Repeatedly. Every day. Again and again and again. I'm talking about hitting stuff with the palm of your hand hard. Hard enough to make sure that whatever you just hit wont ever come lose by itself...ever.

Now, if your profession is lawyer or doctor, it might be hard to shoot a box of 357s out of your snub. I don't blame you. I know how much they punch back and I know it wouldn't be doable for someone who hasn't conditioned their hands, either by necessity or want, to take that punishment. But don't say it's impossible. There's lots of people who can do it.

I agree my SP101 will take magnum loads all flipping day, But my hands wont...

Here is another snub, this pic is a Dan Wesson in .357 caliber with a 2 inch barrel. The front sight is nice for target shooting. I put a colored insert ramp on for carry. They change out very easily. This one currently is supporting a 4" barrel now with the cylinder gap set at a tight .003. Both of the shorties are alot of fun to shoot. The Houges make for shooting mags all day no problemo.
