    Like I said in another thread no one around where I live knows that I have firearms and the ones who know (forum and range members) don't know where I live. I know technology can find a lot of things but they can't pull your addy out of their @ yet... at least I don't think so :p Which is why I don't mind posting pictures, being from the worst province in Canada who would go through all the trouble of coming here for what I have even if they knew lol.

    Edit: look at it this way, from what I can see it's a lot less trouble to steal a truck and ram a gun store at night than it is trying to rob a residence where you know the owner is armed

    I only have One 357/38 in my collection!
    My First Duty Gun! When I fist began law enforcement as a young Deputy Sheriff in Indiana!
    It is a Smith and Wesson N Frame Model 27 5" Barrel 357 Magnum.
    Paid $225 for Her and can hardly believe the value today. Of course back then $225 was a lot of money compared to the weekly law enforcement pay check at the time!:) S&W 27 - 5.jpg

    Like Reacher says "usually the last two run".

    I also have less than I want, but more than I need.

    turns out I didn't, so here goes. 3 .357s, revolver wise, 6 counting break action and semi auto. .38s, as I see we didn't say .38 Specials, 20 .38 S&W, One of which a break action single shot target pistol, and 7 .38 Specials. non revolver, add 1 .38 special break action, and 1 .38 Super.

    All of the ones listed are pistols. also have a couple long guns in .357.

    hell, most these day would run as soon as the pistol comes out, and wouldn't even bother with counting the chambers.

    personally, if i had to make a choice between the 357 Magnums i have, and the 44 Magnums, i would go with the 44 Magnum all day long!

    for myself, i find the 44 much more versatile than the 357. much more powerful. but the drawback is not everyone can handle their recoil. and if person isn't careful, the recoil from a 44 Mag. can hurt you you. i have seen people with gashed foreheads, sprained wrists and other injuries from shooting them.

    my own father owns i think three different 357 Mag, revolvers, and he won't shoot either of my 44 Magnums. he said he shot one back in the mid 1970's and decided he didn't like the recoil and he has no need for anything that big and powerful.

    but i like stout recoiling revolvers! my next planned purchase for a revolve will be the Taurus Raging Bull in 454 Casull. i don't like pushing limits on my guns, and i want a revolver more capable of something stouter than the 44 Magnum, so for me that means stepping up to the 454 Casull.

    I got rid of my 357 several years ago because I realized I just didn't enjoy shooting it. Bought a Ruger GP100 in 327. Been very happy with it. In addition to that I have a Colt dick special and a J frame with 3" barrel. Both 38's. I also have a "J" frame in 9mm, which is a nasty little thing to shoot. If I wasn't fascinated by the moon clips I would send it down the road too.

    My friend got a SS ruger in 454. That is a stout round. We did shoot some 45 LC in it, much lighter recoil.

    This older Charter Arms .38spl is a good shooter and easy to conceal

    0211181555.jpg

    The Ruger GP100 below (top one) is my favorite .38/.357 (the others pictures are a S&W 317 Kit gun .22lr and a Taurus 990 .22lr)

    0211181612.jpg

    The .38/.357 in the middle below is a great shooting Cimarron Frontier 7.5" SA (others pictured are a Chiappa SA in .17HMR and an Uberti in .45colt)
