    I've got a S&W .357 L frame in stainless, 4" bbl.
    You can pick 'em up for $250 used.
    Durable, foolproof, and fun to shoot.

    I carry a scandium j-frame .357 as a BUG or pocket gun. I love it. I'd skip the .357 and stick with .38spl if I had the choice again though :o

    Can't you just run .38spl rounds in your .357 though if you want a tamer recoil?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but:

    You can run .38spl in a .357, but not vice versa. Amirite?

    correct. the point is, the .357 version is more expensive than the .38spl. I could have saved a bunch of money and just got the .38spl version.

    The .357 is fun to let other people shoot though :rofl:

    what are you going to use it for and what is your experience with guns? This is key, since you pretty much always have to balance things like weight, size, recoil, number of rounds it hold, ect.

    who WOULDNT want Max Hardcore as their first? he'll give you a prolapsed anus and urinate on your cold, writhing body when he's finished.

    I like my GP100. Built like a tank, and shoots fairly well.

    Seems real enough to me.

    http://www.swissminigun.com/home.html

    6300 Swiss Francs not including VAT, but including delivery.

    Not importable to the US because something with less punch than a weak pellet gun has been deemed too small by the ATF.
