S&W revolver recommendations?
I'm considering buying a Smith & Wesson revolver. I'm eyeing the model 360 in the .357 but I'm far from making my mind up. Amy personal suggestions?

What are you going to be using the gun for? My father has a 686 and I have 638.

I would like to use it as a concealed carry. I don't want a super long barrel. Something comfortable but in the .357 caliber. I already have a snub nose Taurus .38 special. I'm looking for the power of the .357.

& that is a really nice looking revolver. Beautiful.

My dads 686 is a 2in. Snub With upgraded sights and a hogue grip.

A model 66 can be had reasonably as a police trade in. I like the model 65 as it has no adjustable sights to snag. I have a 3" with the DAO hammer. The 686 is the current medium frame rendition.

If your tastes run more to the sub compact variety, the 640 is rock solid and snag free. If your wallet allows, the 340 PD is the cat's meow. Featherweight powerhouse.

I would get a 686 because that's one that I shot it's real accurate and very nice

The 2.5" K-frame is the ideal carry revolver in my opinion. Go with either a Model 19 or Model 66 (same gun, but the 66 is the stainless version). I have two 66s. One I keep with nice comfy combat grips for range shooting. The other I keep with small, thin magna grips with a T-grip for better concealment.

Talking concealed carry, the smallest possible package in .357 That S+W offers would be the M+P. (I think..) Don't own one, but have some experience with it and would recommend it. Depending on your likes and needs, that might do the job for ya...:cool:
