"Your hand will be red and hurt from shooting my gun with the .357 mag ammo"
That is what was happening with the Remington ammo in my gun. After one cylinder the webbing between my thumb and index finger was getting a good beating. Of course, I'll take it to the range next week with some gloves and fire off the rest for kicks. Who knows, maybe I'll take a liking to it. Either way, I'll probably stick with 38 special +P, as I suspect it is more than adequate for my purposes of home defense.
