I'm looking at a .357, 5 shot, snub nose (around 2") revolver. This is obviously for concealed carry. Here are the choices I have come up with so far: 1. Smith & Wesson Model 60 -Pros: History, S&W history, lightest of the bunch. -Cons: Expensive, short-barrel with exposed hammer difficult to find, I'd have to replace the standard long grip. 2. Tarus 605 Stainless -Pros: Inexpensive, short grip. -Cons: Not the same history of the other two makers, fit & finish isn't the greatest. 3. Ruger SP101 -Pros: Frame design is different and beefy, barrel is slightly longer than the others, priced between the other two, skinniest grip, it's the heaviest of the group (recoil). -Cons:it's the heaviest of the group (carry weight). All three I have picked up, and set in my pocket. They all seem suitable for the task. They all use the same HKS speedloader, and will all handle the same ammunition. My real question is, does anyone know anything about the revolvers these manufacturers make that would make me not want any of them? I can pick tha Taurus up for $339, The Ruger for $439, and the S&W for $550.
