    My wife has a .357 Ruger SP101 2.25" barrel that she loves. I think it's a nice size...right on the high end of weight that I would want to carry day-after-day though.

    I have a titanium S&W 38+P (model 642) that I carry 95% of the time. Weighs 13oz empty. Great little gun with plenty of stopping power...IMHO.

  3. Hey folks just updating since the post was resurrected. Love my Taurus 617 have many rounds through it. Have shot +P's and .357's out of it and must say the .357's are wild shooting. Bought a Bianchi model 3S IWB holster for it and carry it a lot. Love the gun would do it again. Now I am contemplating a Ruger LCR. What do you guys think?

    Very nice trigger & easy to shoot.

    Hello All,
    New to the forum but not firearms. I am also new to CCW. Up until now had not seen the need but of late decided that it may be a good idea to get involved. I have alsways been a revolver fan. I have owned and still do have a few autos but I consider them to be a bit more difficult to operae and shoot, revolvers being less so. Right now my first carry gun is the S&W Bodyguard38. As I am sure most of you know it is the new kid on the block and a sort of cousin to the J frame rovolvers. I picked it due to its light weight and built in laser. As with all light snubbies its a bit nasty to shoot but with some pratice and a gloved hand its does well enough for me to keep all five shots on paper at the distance I would consider the furthest away one can get away with. I dont shoot at 21 feet due to the fact in my state your going to have a hard time convincing a judge or jurry that you were in mortal danger and could not flee or hide at that distance between you and your attacker. The gun packs well, has a good DA only pull and is made of stuff you can sweat on and get dirty without worrying about what you are doing to the finish. Price here was about the same as the Ruger LCR with laser grips. With a few hundred rounds of .38 Spl. 158 lead RN ammo through it I can say it seems to be holding up well and will do the job it was disigned for. From here on out I will be shooting my own handloaded JHPs in it and see how that goes.

    I own and carry a Rossi r46102 and I would call it a great little wheelie, it's definitely not a piece of junk. My 461 is built as tightly and with detail for precision as the S&W's and Colts I've seen in use at the range. I would recommend the gun to anyone looking for a .357 with minimal recoil, (the gun wieghs 26.5 oz.), and the gun is very concealable too.

    I carry a S&W 642,loaded with Critical Defense rounds in a front pocket holster. Very comfortable and quickly assessable if needed. It is accurate enough to use with confidence out to about 15 yards,but hey its a Get Off Of Me Gun ..
    Its Better To Have It And Not Need It Than To Need It And Not Have It.

  9. Question S&w 686

    I would like to carry my 686 (4" barrel). For a gun of this size, my best options seem to be shoulder or crossdraw. Does anyone think strong side is a reasonable alternative (I spend a lot of time sitting)? I would appreciate your suggestions.
    Thanks

    I have a Rossi M877 ( stainless 2" .357 6 shot) Its performance has been flawless and worksmanship excellent. But it does sting the hand a little, even with .38 +P+.

    I beg to differ with you inspector, I own both a S&W Mod. 60/Cheif Spl. w/2 1/4" barrel, and a Rossi 46102 and I carry either/or. My Rossi is as well built as my S&W, and just as reliable. Rossi's are NOT a piece of junk!
