    For me you have to consider hitting what your aiming at. The .38 special was designed exactly for that purpose (in either 2 or 4" barrels) and with a slug that has good stopping power and noise. I especially like a six shot, double action in +P with the Hollow point rounds. Also, a speed loader should be handy. For me the heavier the barrel the less recoil with more accuracy. I will add my two-bits worth on the importance with noise in another post.

    Have you ever thought of looking into a .380 acp Semi-Automatic with a 3.5 inch barrel. Some have the option of having 15 round mags with 1 in the chamber. These weapons are easy on the wallet and affordable to shoot and feel really good in the hand

    This is a very good point in my humble estimation.

    Wait...... he was looking for a revolver, and settled on a...... Radom? What the....

    In that case, buy something modern and comfortable to shoot, easy to conceal, reliable and inexpensive, as in, a Keltec. Oh, and it's American made too.

    Revolver to....Radom????? What the......? :confused::confused::confused:

    A lot of the polish military men like the Radom 64, after all it's......is this a joke? Come on.... I prefer the sharps rifle when I hunt bufaloo...... And the colt pocket pistol for in my vest when I gamble on the river boat. Rod Sterling, are you listening?

    Poke fun if you must, but I prefer firearms that have a proven history. I actually didn't settle on a Radom, I just like the way they feel in my hand and after all isn't that one of the main reasons for buying a weapon is the feel of it. I had to give up my 1911 so I wanted an autoloader for my most of the time carry. I will get a revolver but it will have to wait till I can have the means to purchase one.
