This is a gun which is light and lethal. You will try it with 38 Special (not bad), 38 Special +P (gets your attention), and then .357 Magnum. The pad between your thumb and forefinger will be very very sore. I did 20 rounds today - 10 38S, 5 38S+P, and 5 .357M in that order. This gun is NOT a pleasure to shoot but that isn't what it is for. As an ankle or other backup, it is beautiful. Light and revolver reliable. But, it is this lightness which makes the bigger rounds painful - very painful - to shoot. Take to the range, note that it shoots where you point it, and then load it up and leave it for your gun of last resort. I am delighted that I bought it. I have every confidence in it. I will shoot it again only as a novelty to humble shooting buddies or when it is needed in a dire situation. DO NOT even consider this gun for a lady unless she has ham fists and can beat you in an arm wrestle in two seconds flat.
