You need to leave you Name & Number at those local gunshops. Tell them what you are looking for and sit tight. Or, better yet... locate your own then have it sent to your local FFL.

Try this for starters: http://www.gunsamerica.com/Search.aspx?T=Colt king cobra

I wouldn't buy one for 10 bucks. The ones I've seen are very rough and look like crap. You said it yourself, you get what you pay for - I'd be on the lookout for a used Smith or Ruger...

Comanches are made in Argentina by Rexio, they are awful. Stay away from them. I've seen a fair share of them at the range, since cheap security companies issue them.

Taurus is usually OK for the money, the last two I tried (including the first one I bought) had to be returned. My Judge's frame cracked after less than a box of mild ammo, and the other one (a 9mm snubby) would jam all the time, the cylinder would just freeze. I'd rather spend a bit more on a Smith and Ruger, since Taurus warranty takes FOREVER to repair anything.

I was at a local gun store and came across a 357 comanche and wow, looks like it was the micro machine die cast metal and felt like i could smack it and break it, i will not be getting one of those, on the other hand sorry about your judge, i bought the new public defender and iv put a few boxes of high power loads in it without a problem, as i said befor i noticed cheap ammo doesnt do well in it as it is easy to stop up with powder. I think i may get the taurus model 627 next as i can pick a new one up for around 400. all the local gun stores that have used revolvers sell smith and etc for 5 to 700.

I never looked into it but what the muzzel energy say at 20 yards of a 38 hot load compared to a 357?

I have a Security Six and a Service Six both bought in the last 4 years. Both in great condition. Both are STRONG and accurate. I paid $300 for the service and $325 for the security. I will buy more when I have the cash. They are the perfect size revolvers in my opinion. You will end up shooting it more than the GP100 if you get one.

Can't say at 20 yards but Muzzle Energy is like so.
.38 sp 158 grain LRN 200-250
.357 mag 158 gr jsp 550-650.
Different mfg will make some difference but on averag the .357 has twice to three times the energy as a comparable .38 sp.
