Yeah, I know. Another stupid "help me decide" thread. Can't help it! I'm torn on which to get first. So please suk it up one more time and help me pull the trigger.

My local shop has some "used" models in right now and I can't decide on which to pick up today. I've narrowed it down to two Case Hardened Model P versions with the 4 3/4 barrel. One a 45LC and the other a 357. Both look brand new and were more than likely fired once then displayed. I can get either one for $325. I'm leaning toward the 357 because I believe I can shoot 38sp with it as well; and that may the less expensive route for plinking practice.

What say you guys?!?

I'd say the 357--Trust me, you'll shoot it a lot more
Yes, the 38 will fire fine---

My Cimmaron Frontier is a .357 and I shoot it a lot. .45 Colt is fine if you reload, if not it's pretty costly. Also if you ever get into CAS, .357 is the caliber most people use (except the Warthogs). $325 sounds like a good deal, I paid $500 for mine new in stainless. Post up some pics when you get it.

Thanks, gentlemen. I appreciate the info. I felt like the 357 would be a much easier option to shoot more often. Nowhere near as cheap as getting a plinker .22, but at least it's got some stopping power if its ever needed.

I'll be picking it up in a few minutes when the shop opens. I'll post up pics a little later.

Now to pick out a .22 plinker for the other side of my set. Pretty sure I'm going with a Heritage RR Bird's Head 3.5" model.

Then it'll be time to set up my own holster rig.

Thanks. I'm pretty happy finding it for the price. If I had more disposable $, I'd have gotten the matching set of 45LCs they had, too.

Now to get to the range this weekend!!
