Re: gonna buy a revolver. looking for some suggestions....
Lotsa metal on those babies! My wife carries a Taurus light weight. I'd trust it in a fight but its no fun at the range. I carry a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 & have for decades. Two guns. Not heavy but good steel & well made. Excellent trigger. Crappy sights but its for close range "haft-toos". Groups well.
I'm not one for a pistol which takes away from my ability to SA shoot. Never know when you may need to hit your spot at the outside range of the gun & hit sumthin!
