One problem with .357's is that if someone wants NO HAMMER, there are very few options.

Most of the internal hammer/shrouded hammer revolvers are .38spl+p only. Most of the .357's out there have external hammers.

These are the 2 hammer-less .357's that I know of:

S&W 640
Ruger LCR .357

Am I missing anything?

From many years of my own experience and the experience of others. . . there are more advantages than drawbacks to having the hammer available. I don't even notice it, she won't either in time.

Opinion only. . . .

I do not tell the wife what shoes to buy, nor will I buy her shoes without her there, but I can give opinions.

I am guilty of buying her a firearm I thought was perfect for HER, only to find out that it wasn't (in her opinion).

That's kinda funny. Smith changes one little teeny thing about a firearm and they give it a whole new #. So then there's Ruger which has 1 model # and many different features. THanks for letting me know.

Default She bought it!

I am so proud. After some saving we went down to the gun shop today and Mrs. CHLChris bought her first firearm. It is her thumb prints on record and "her" money on the line.

She chose a Smith and Wesson 642 with LG-305 Crimson Trace grip (the one with the extended grip for the pinkie).

She rejected all the pink ones, all the LadySmith ones, all the wood-gripped purdy ones. She wanted all-business.

Now I plan to have Stephen at RKBA Pocket Holsters make her a pocket holster with an enclosed bottom so purse junk stays away from the barrel. We'll see about other carry options as she thinks of other options.

I also think Remington 158 gr +p LSWCHP will be best for her needs. Some of the faster, lighter rounds have more kick and this round will be sufficient for her, superior even.

Thanks for everybody's help and suggestions. We considered all of the options and we decided on the "best" brand's workhorse in carry revolvers.

CHLChris,

It looks like you made a fine choice.

And that's a nice gun, too.

Default for wife...which carry revolver fits?

Hey your spouse picked a fine weapon..I had one of these too, but traded it (Big mistake!) but I have the LCR which my wife likes even more..she likes to shoot it but did not like the recoil of the Smith. Great choice and remember to shoot it often, finding out which ammo it likes and sticking with it, then practice, practice, practice. By the way, do not hesitate to do dry fire practice (use snap caps please) which will aid in loading and unloading techniques, proper form and trigger control. It also works the action smoothing it as well. Again, good choice!!

Great choice. I looked at one myself just for a more concealable gun than the one I carry
