    nice!

    my carry permit expired a bit ago

    with all the crazy shit happening it’s given me reason to renew it

    been saving up my bass pro points, so close to walking out with a ‘free’ snubnose revolver

    i have a few semi auto’s i can conceal but i really want a s&w revolver

    *without starting a pissing match,
    what caliber do people prefer in a revolver?

    i shot a 38special taurus years ago and liked it

    but 38, 357.....?

    was even considering a little naa 22mag maybe because easy to conceal

    thoughts?

    I like the .357 since I can load .38 specials for plinking and just screwing around, and save the magnums for serious business.

    I had a friend that had one of those NAA jobs. He couldn't hit the side of a barn from inside with it. Something to consider....

    I had an old High Standard double derringer in 22 Mag. Same problem as the NAA, couldn't hit shit. The problem with it was a ridiculous trigger pull....

    so 357 can also use 38 special kinda like a 556 can also shoot a 223 but not vice versa?

    Never carried or owned a revolver. Almost got the ole lady an airweight 38 last year but got her the rm380 (that i usually end up edc'ing for size) for no particular reason.

    That Glock stays on a magnet in my truck, and was only taken out this weekend to go with me into one of my boss"s trucks so i could move some shit. It's wayyyyyyy to heavy for me to carry.

    The boss had an airlite 357 in a scandium frame last weekend. I shot it twice and felt like the fucker could fly out of my hands lol. It was intense.

    Yes, 38 Special will fit in a 357 Magnum, 45 Long Colt will fit in a 454 Casull Magnum, 44 Special will fit in a 44 Magnum and a few others. These will not fit using the Magnum shells. They're too long for the standard chamber.

    BUTT*, 22 Long Rifle will NOT fit in a 22 Magnum. They're different sizes.

    Now, when it comes to the 5.56 and 223 Remington... they WILL fit, but the 5.56 is a higher pressure round. Usually, it won't cause any major problems, but MAY cause some problems. Usually, they just cause the 223 barrel, and some other parts, to wear out a lot quicker. Very rarely will it cause a catastrophic failure, but, it's really not worth taking the chance.... The 223 Wylde chamber will safely fire either 5.56 NATO or the 223 Remington.

    thanks for the input gents

    i remember feeling 100% of the kick from that taurus 38 and loved it. revolver feel is def nothing like a semi auto, jump out of hands indeed.

    i’ll carry my kahr pm9 till i decide on something

    i love my glock 19 but i never liked carrying it concealed for long

    will stay away from naa 22mag, i’d want more knockdown power anyway
