Re: thoughts on a 357
Thanks for the replys guys. I don't intend to hunt with it, I would just like to have something I can point and shoot fast if something wants to eat me. Where I hunt, mountain lions are known to be seen every season.
I have alot of experience shooting 357's. Thats what I grew up shooting. I was thinking of the small frame mostly because of how light it is. I took my dads mod 57 out one year. After about an hour hike it ended up back in the truck. Just to heavy. Also could have been the service holster it was in too though. My ideal gun would be the 1911, but I have all the reloading equipment for the 357. And since I don't have a handgun and definitely want to get one in case tweedle dumb gets reelected, I figure I better get the one that I can make my own rounds for.
The one place I was looking at the Taurus the guy showing me said they wern't as good as the SW or the Ruger. That they didn't hold up as well. And I'm just not a fan of the western single six look.
It ain't broke it just lacks duct tape.
The nice thing about opinions is everybody has one.
