.357 would be my choice

This isn’t what we’re here for, but I have a S&W 317, thing weighs 11 ounces and holds 8 rounds of .22 lr. I’ve been tickled to death with it. Very accurate for its size and weight, soda cans at 10 yards are child’s play, shotgun hulls are a bit sporty though.

I’ve been looking into these. Any sticky extraction issues?

S&W 65

I have a few. It would be hard to pick a favorite….

S&W M65 that originally was a 4” with a square butt. A buddy of mine cut it down to a 3” and rounded off the grip:



S&W M629 3”:



S&W M36 3”:



Colt Police Positive that originally had a 6” barrel. I had my buddy put a 3” Detective Special barrel on it:



Ruger SP101 with a 3” barrel:

It gets a bit sticky when it gets hot and dirty, but a nylon bore brush and a squirt of clp clears it out just fine. Maybe takes a hundred rounds to get hard to eject.

I bought it for a canoe gun, a kydex holster and speed loader  from speed-beez make it great on your hip while fishing and camping. I made a lanyard for it and use a retractable tether to keep it attached to me if I should happen to dump the canoe. It patterns rat shot well at snake dispatching distance, and should be hell on a raccoon the next time one is molesting my campsite.

I'm partial to 3" barreled revolvers myself.  The only one I have at the moment is a Ruger SP101, but I've also owned a S&W 60 in .357.  Currently on the hunt for a 3" 686+.

Model 60 with the fiber optic sights.  Obviously not my picture.

It's their oversized conversion grip, but I reprofiled it into more of a combat grip shape.

Here's a crappy picture from one of the "every handgun should have a light" threads; the lantern was moving and making it hard for the phone to focus I guess.

altough a 65 is good

I also like 3 inch N frames 5 inch is my favorite in those

Have owned numerous Smith 3" K frames .38/.357s before 13, 64 NY-1 and a pair of 65s.  In .44 SPL have owned a 3" Taurus 431 and a 3" CA Bulldog .44 SPL.  Still have the Bulldog, built in the late 60s

That picture, coming from you, cracks me up.  I can imagine the comments if you posted it in GD.  Several of the guys I know who've worked in various contracting capacities carry a revolver Stateside, at least on occasion or as a secondary.

That's what makes it funny; despite the common rhetoric, most of the folks I know who've actually been there, done that, have at least one revolver (usually a J frame) that gets carry time.  Somewhat surprisingly, despite carrying Glocks most of the time overseas and what you see on youtube, only a handful of them carry them here; they actually carry a pretty wide assortment of stuff.

Honestly, it's the whole picture that I find funny- the Charter Arms, a five shot revolver that still has the hammer spur, the assorted ammo and HKS Speedloaders and the Uncle Mike's holster.  So many internet folks would swear that combo would get you killed yet someone with actual real world experience is comfortable with it   I'm definitely low speed, but the Rossi in the goofy picture I posted above is sitting about a foot from me anytime I'm at my desk (there might be a couple of other guns nearby as well though ).

I’ve been really happy with this guy.  Made a few changes from stock, not set on this particular set of VZ grips though

66-8 in .357

I carry the 3" 38spl French trade-in with Trausch grips. This grips are probably the best-feeling grips I've ever used.

I find the Ruger 5 shots to be less refined. Compare how much sleeker the Mod 60 is above my SP101.

Mustangs I believe. Made for the old DS, I had to modify them a little.
Some fitting and a new locator pin required, but I love them.

For me a .357 needs a 4" with full underlug at minimum.
Even then I'm only shooting 125 +P
