Well the main reason I was looking at the taurus in 9mm is because I have 2 other pistols that shoot 9mm so I wouldnt have to buy another caliber, plus when I start reloading I will be reloading for all of the guns. However, even though I like the 686, im leaning towards something a bit smaller for carry in the future. The gun probably wont see as much range time as the others, until I get close to the time when I start carrying.

Having two 9mm is a great reason to get a 357 -

Anyway, I have a Ruger GP100 revolver that I like a lot. It's a work horse and nice to look at. I do believe S&W make revolvers that are a little more sophistacated then the Rugers.
Winds,
They do take the same rounds, normally used with moon clips.

Look for a vintage S&W. There is something about a vintage Smith wheel gun in the K/L or N frame that sends quivers up my spine. Like a vintage M1911A1, the history seems to morph from the ageless stocks and provide the shooter with a glimpse of brilliance from the giants who's shoulders we walk on. (Elmer Keith, Jack Weaver, Col. Charles "Boots" Askins, Thell Reed, Jerry Miculek to name a few.)



My M19-3 (circa 1970)

And/or



My M29-2 (circa 1980)

Thank you. I just deleted my original post for containing incorrect information but I will leave it quoted here as you have corrected me. And thank you for correcting me. I was comparing it to what I know about the .380 and the .38. So, I learned something new again today.

Love my ruger gp 100 in 357 mag. I normally shoot 38 specials but I like the fact that when I feel like it I can shoot a more powerful round. Reloading the 38 special round and the 357 round is also very easy.

Well I took my wife to the range, and she shot a friends 638 J frame. She really likes the gun, and wants one for when she is home alone( I work 3rd shift). Is the 638 a good J frame to get, or is there a better one? Or possibly an LCR?
