Since you like Glock why don't you just get one of their .357 G32

2.5" Model 19 or 66...since you specified "quality". :)

357mag not 357 sig,although i have shot one and its pretty cool.

Olympus,is this a smith that you are speaking of?? And how about the s&w bodyguard?? Dont look too bad and comparable to the 442,642 series.

This is my opinion.

I am getting a .357 revolver and decided to go with the Ruger LCR. The only other one I would consider is one from Smith & Wesson. The reason I decided on a .357 is the option to shoot .38Spl.

I have no desire to shoot 38 spl ammo. I purchased 357 mag handguns to fire 357 ammo. I have a 9mm that duplicates the performance of the 38 spl and it's a lot cheaper to shoot. I own a Ruger SP101, Ruger Blackhawk and an old Charter 357 snub nose. None of them have given me any problems. All three are very dependable. Both the Blackhawk and the Charter have fired a lot of 357 rounds. The Blackhawk is my favorite gun.

As I stated, it is an option to be able to shoot two different calibers from one handgun. Options are always good.

Love my LCR. Great trugger, and better handling with the hogue grips I believe.

LCR is the best way to go I think.
