Oh me to me too! This girl LOVES the .357 Magnum.
It was the first firearm I ever bought, and is hands down my abosolute favorite. I developed a taste for revolvers when Dad bought me one as a Sweet
16 present - S&W .357 K Frame (Model 19) 6" - honest to goodness the BEST revolver I ever shot - until I bought my own. It was silver, so I found it
got dirty quite easily and I was always cleaning it.
When i turned 21 I bought myself a S&W .357 N Frame (Model 28) 6" (I got it in the blue finish). I actually like the larger frame as opposed to the K
- and I switched out the wood grips that it came with for the black rubber ones. It's a very sleek looking gun. (Man I can't wait for summer and the
outdoor range to be groomed for practice).
I shoot both .38sp and .357's in both guns - but I have an over-abundance of .38's so that's what I've been primarily shooting. You can definitely
feel the lighter load between both calibres.
Gotta say though, I reccomend the .357 to anyone and everyone who wants to have a pleasant first experience with shooting handguns. The first handgun
I ever shot was a S&W 9 mm - it doesn't even compare
to the .357. In my opinion of course...
