I'm looking for a double action revolver with a nice curved handle, no finger impressions, and a nice length barrel. I keep seeing revolvers that are either huge cannons or the barrel is rather short. I'd like to have a nice revolver with nice weight and balance so its easy for handling. I'd like it to feel like second nature when handling. Maybe call it old fashioned but I rather like the idea of nice balanced revolvers for hobby shooting. Short barrels just wouldn't give it the same feeling or swing balance. I figure the caliber might also present a certain cost in ammunition and I'd really like to be able to practice shooting as a hobby without breaking the pocket book. I don't need massive power as I think a high power gun might be too large for the type of revolver im looking for, like those cannons i spoke of, but I'd like to think it could provide protection if need be. I've got a buddy who's into guns but I'm afraid he might consider the type of revolver I'm looking for to be low power considering what he's used to haha His King Cobra is just way too large for what I'm looking for (and I rather dislike the handle). I'd appreciate any feedback anyone could give me.
