s/w 60 ladysmith
 
I drooled over this little gun in a 357 caliber today andn am interested to know if anyone else out there has used this little gun as a concealed carry? I loved everything about the feel adn quality, but also , if anyone has shot tho\i gun themselves, how 'snappy' is it to shoot with 357 versus 38's? Or as compared to a s/w model 36 38 cal.?

My wife had a Model 60 and she shot it very accurately with .38 +P's. .357 was a bit snappy for her, but she's a petite woman.

There is .357 ammunition manufactured specifically for short barreled handguns. It has less recoil and less flash.

The Model 60/Ladysmith is a fine revolver.

Can order the S/W Lady Smith 357 locally for 629. or is at Bud's for 609. so about the same price after shipping.

I was thinking about laser grips for the gun too, but so far haven't found a price or which ones work best for this gun. So if anybody knows about this stuff , I'm all ears.

You can shoot 38 special in that pistol so if the 357 is a bit much go to 38 special +P or standard 38 special. I have a 642, it's in the same family of S&W airweights. I CC when the weather gets warm. I've heard nothing but good about the ladysmith.

I have some automatics but I always carry my Smith model 37. You will be happy I'm sure with the Smith.
