    Default Help me decide on .357 carry revolver

    I’m young and new to concealed carrying snd revolvers in general. Like a typical young person I thought the Glock 19 was the best firearm ever made...look I’m learning to grow a pair ok! Now I’m all things revolver. Right now I’d say I’m leaning towards a ruger sp101 but idk I’m pretty new when it comes to these godly handguns and curious what people have to say

    Can't go wrong with a Ruger, But i suggest shooting a short barreled one on 357 before buying. If it's painful to shoot. You won't want to practice with it.

    Yeah I shot the ruger which is a 2 and a quarter barrel and with a hot defensive round its definitely snappy! But still fun to shoot and practice with in .38

    the sp101 is a quality revolver....but i prefer pocket carry...........to those ends it is a bit too large and heavy. The trigger may need to be worked on a tad...

    the S&W j frame series offer more 357 choices in a slightly smaller more pocket-able package......the model 60 is the classic there as well as the model 649. Vast grip choices compared to the ruger.

    the Ruger LCR and LCRx in 357 is my choice.....great triggers out of the box, pocket-able with less weight than a magnum smith j frame, a 3" 357 magnum LCRx version is now available which is tempting for me.....but i am holding out for a 327 in a 3" if they ever get around to building it....
