Hi new to forum and wanted to get started right away and pick some of your brains about revolvers. I as looking for a .357 snubby to CCW. I have looked at and shot a couple the Ruger SP101 and the Taurus 605 both 5 shots. I did like the Ruger but, am in a $410 budget including tax and in New Jersey a $15 NICS charge. I like the Taurus 605 but, want the 617 which holds 7 rounds. Not much in weight difference. The 617 is about 2oz heavier that the 101 but you gain 2 more rounds with the 617 but, the 605 is 4.4 oz lighter then the 617 but, you lose 2 rounds. for you guys that carry revolvers what is your perspective on choosing a CCW revolver. Lighter less rounds or a few oz heavier and gain exta rounds? I fall into the price if I go blued and not SS.
