Thanks to all who have given input, editorial and otherwise or have just taken part in this thread. I've finally decided on my new carry weapon. My
fondness for revolvers played a big part in this as well as a few other things. While this weapon will be my primary carry weapon I am still reviewing
some full size pistols for home defense as well.
Based on fit and finish, price, weight & size and familiarity, along with the fact I already have bags of ammunition for this firearm, 2 leather
holsters and carriers for the quick reloads I've chosen the Rossi R35102 38spl +P 2" barrel, blued revolver.
I found this revolver to be very similar to my old beloved Colt Mark IV only lighter, with shorter barrel and better hand-grips. True it's only 5
shot rather than 6 but if I have to shoot that many rounds I need to spend more time at the range.
It is superior to my previous S&W Airweight's in that it has just enough additional weight to make it easier (and less painful) to shoot but is still
quite small and pretty light in the carry department.
Thanks again everyone.
