    in .357 magnum.


    I want something that puts out big fire balls, and makes me chuckle every time I shoot it.



    Is that wrong?

    Nope, I have and I love it. It serves as my carry gun.

    The urge you have to resist is loading it with 38 spl and 1 357 when some one wants to take a few shots, not that is wrong.

    all the airweights are gorgeous little guns... unfortunately, the .357 versions are a bit more than I can justify spending on one, and I know if I buy a .38 version, I'll be pissed that I can't shoot both.


    I wouldn't carry it(simply because I can't legally)... would just be for shits and giggles



    there are a few taurus revolvers that look to be not too bad, unfortunately, most of the good ones aren't legal in california :rolleyes:

    shooting 357mag in that tiny thing is pretty brutal. But totally badass.

    I had an Airweight in Ti that I really liked. I gave it to my brother when I got my G27 so I could swap mags.
    .357 is a punishing round in it though.

    Absolute must for any gun collector and CCW'er. I heart mine, and it goes everywhere with me. Sure has a nasty bark. :sexytime:

    I'd like to have the option to shoot .357

    as I said earlier, most of the reason I'd be buying the gun is just for shits and giggles. I know shooting .357 out of it would be rediculous, but that's half the point.

    All the airweights are so sexy though... not THAT expensive for a .38 version.


    I need to find someone with one to shoot in .38 to see if it'll satiate my chuckling desires.

    Well, I just bought a gun last week. I'm graduating in May though, so I plan to have one by the end of summer. :wiggle:

    I really like the M&P ones, but it's a bit too much for me cost wise

    frame is made of scandium alloy... makes it about an ounce and a half lighter it seems.


    and it looks cool

    If you are going to get one for Range duty only, and not for CCW, take a look at the 6xx series side feeders from Smith and Wesson that fire Rimless calibers (aka .45acp, .40/10mm and 9mm)

    Buying ammo for both your wheel gun and your bottom feeder FTW!
