    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Finally, I am one of you guys now!

    My latest purchase, and my first ever firearm!

    I've been shooting with Sam B. and his crew for a while now, and apparently I don't suck. So I decided to pick up a nice little carry piece. It's a little gun, but I feel that it packs sufficient punch to stop any potential zombie assault. I also have a weakness for wheelguns and guns that remind me of old cop shows. Ergo, I give you "lil' Scrappy."

    Caliber .357 Magnum, 2" barrel, 24 oz. I can wear this in the back of my waistband with a T-shirt and you won't even see a bulge. It weighs almost nothing.

    With .38 Special, I shot consistently shot 8-inch groups at 15 yards, the magnum loads are going to take some practice. It was all I could do to keep them on the paper at 15 yards.

    A retarded monkey could maintain, disassemble and clean this thing. 150 rounds through it and I am a very happy camper right now.

    Feel free to congratulate me!

    Nice choice.

    I used to have a S&W 586 L-frame with an Aimpoint 5000 scope on it, and Pachmyer grips (sp.). I really liked it. It was very accurate, and a breeze to maintain.

    Enjoy.

    Keep working on your trigger pull. Remember, to squeeze gently, until you're at the breaking point, and then squeeze a wee bit more.

    Keep practicing with some lightly loaded .38 special wadcutters with this technique, and I'd bet that you tighten up those 8" groups to 4" after a few days.

    If you find the blast of a full house .357 magnum load to be too much at first, you can certainly carry Remington's medium velocity .357 magnum loads. They fire out a 125 grain bullet to about 1200+ fps, which is about the same as the hotter 9 mm +P loads (a very respectable performer).

    Also, Speer makes a short-barrel Gold Dot load for the .357 magnum caliber as well. This is what I carry in a .357 magnum snubbie.

    I am a novice gun owner...but I shoot a lot. It's not the first time I have played with .357...or even .44.

    The light frame and short barrel are gonna take some getting used to...

    Sexy.

    Do they make a replacement hammer that "shaves" it down a bit or completely? I'd be concerned about CCW that thing and catching it on a sweater or something.

    There are several shrouded hammer versions...but I like the look of the exposed hammer better. I am looking into waistband holsters now with that very issue in mind.

    I thought about getting a handgun for home protection...and when I do...it will be a revolver. If it is gonna be sitting in a drawer for years before you NEED it, you need simplicity, not worn out springs and jammed pistol.

    and before everybody jumps on me...I know a shotgun would be best for home protection :qleft6: I just was wanting something a little smaller.
