Thats really cool i had no idea that you could switch between 357 and 38... Thats defantly a good option. I will talk to her about that, i doubt that she would shoot the 357 but who knows she might feel safer with it. She used to be a great shot... Im sure to some degree that as long as she still has her fundementals it will be like riding a bike.

Be extremely careful!!! Use only revolvers marked for BOTH! If you put .357s in a gun marked for .38 you could have an over pressure disaster.

I have a Gp100 and i love it. My oldlady shoots it also. Shes small and can shoot .357's like nothing. She shoots my handgun more than her Glock. But who can blame her, its a nice .357 revolver and everyone wants to shoot nice well made revolver.

My GP100 is not marked as 38 but it is common knowledge you can shoot 38 in the 357, just out of curiosity is there a revolver marked 357 and 38? I've never heard of it, from what I have seen the are marked as what they are either a 357 or a 38. Also the 357 shell is longer than the 38 so does the 357 even fit in a 38 cylinder? I don't own a 38 so I'm not sure, but I would think they made the 357 longer for the reason that it wouldn't fit in the 38, of course there could be some models it would fit in so you should always double check you arent using the wrong ammo, but if you buy a 357 you shouldn't have to worry about shooting 38s even if it isn't marked 38

You get the 357 since it is a bit heavier. That will absorb more recoil when she fires .38spl or even .38spl+p through it.

I am particularly partial to the Smith&Wesson 686-PLUS. It has 7 rounds instead of just 6. 4" or even 6" barrel would be good.

I think Rusty was saying if the gun only specifies .38 to not shoot .357 through it. But if it's marked .357 you can always shoot .38's through it.

Okay there is a slight different in width between .38 and .357 not a big one but it counts. Now I've never shot .38 s from a 357 I shoot 38s from a 38. It's just a safety thing for me others might have other experience, that's the purpose of this site.
