.357 magnum is my favorite handgun round for many reasons, mainly because of its man killing power. people will talk $hit on me all day at the range for having a 2 inch 357 but I can land that first shot on a silver dollar at 10 yards. all of those guys with their glock and springfield autos can take their 8-10 round clips and shove them up their asses. In my opinion, a 357 on a small or even medium size frame is the ultimate self defense weapon. my $350 taurus has never not fired when i pulled the trigger.

after going to the range with my son yesterday and shooting the .44mag revolver, i realised that it is going to be WAAAAY too big for my wife and son to shoot if needed so next week we'll look at the .357. my son did not even want to attempt shooting the 44! i loved it but have to admit that it was very tiring!

Out 12 handguns, 6 are 357. The GP100 is the one I carry daily. The rest are for fun.

Nice 686 man, what ammo are you using in it?

This one just got moved from range/woods/truck gun to carry/bedside/truck/range/woods gun for the season. Not to mention that the wife is falling in love with the SP101, so I can see it slipping away, but I enjoyed it and I believe she will as much. . . WHEN SHE'S READY!!!

Nice 686, Mongoose I've had my eye out, but nothing that sweet has been around these parts.

Default 357 as primary weapon

My favorite gun is my Ruger Police Service Six, 357, stainless, purchased way back in 1972. It's still my favorite, with a 3 inch barrell. It's primarily our home defender, but I do carry it occasionally. Best trigger I've ever seen, either double action or single action.

Plus, as an added bonus, my girl (who HAS shot before but isn't a regular shooter) can just pick it up and pull the trigger to make "bang" happen if I'm not around and it hits the fan.
Funny stuff Josh....I'm looking for a similar weapon for my wife for the same reasons!
