My dad used ti carry a colt detective special back in the day, he was fine with it, and said it was comfortable, I'm guessing it was the later partial aluminum frame. I would love to have a nice little revolver to have as a carry option. I hear good things abiut the now discontinued taurus 617T. The sw 360 revolver is also nice i hear. Then again i hear having a .357 as a light carry option is not great since the power coupled with the light weight make for a nasty recoil. Any good revolver options you guys can recomend?
