"Personally? I think the J-frame .357s are some of the dumbest guns tom come down the pike in decades, but that's just me."
And I repeat them here in case she doesn't revisit the comment.
What WOULD you recommend, Tam, in lieu of a .357 J Frame? I'm pretty sure my only hard and fast requirement is that the future snubbie I get be made of steel. I chose the 640 because of the steel, and that, if it was rugged enough to take .357, it will be more than rugged enough to shoot the .38 I'd use 99% of the time with it.
