      Thumbs up

      22 lr Revolvers are really fun to shoot. When I bought my K22 my buddy asked why I would buy something in 22? I took him out shooting and he was really impressed. I sure was impressed with the smile on his face as he shot it.

      I didn't shoot the rest of the handload cartridges and considered myself lucky to miss an accident
      I've got an old Ruger Blackhawk .45 convertible. When I want .44 Magnum performance, I shoot a .44 Magnum.

      Not speaking from experience but I'm considering picking up a .357 686 or GP100. Being able to shoot .38's, .38+P's and .357's......not a great CCW gun but at the range, in the woods and in the home I think it makes for a versatile gun.

      44 Special is my favorite. I've had one since the 1960's and there is nothing I have asked it to do that it hasn't done quite well from plinking to hunting and self defense. Not the hottest ticket on the block, but still a good old performer.

      I have to agree with the .357 as being my favorite.

      Baldy....I love the "roll my own ammo" phrase.

      It all depends. For most hunting situations, the .44 Magnum. Really big critters, I'd choose my heavier handloads in .45 Colt. Long range, its the .44 Magnum. Small, edible game, I'd go with the .22 L.R. or the old .22 WRF if it were still available.

      For everyday social carry, I go with a S&W Model 19 in .357 Magnum, loaded with .38 Special +P 158 gr. SWC Hollow points.

      No question .357. Every one you buy is essentially two guns in one because it can fire the .38 round.

      The .357 is the best SD round out there for handguns, however, in the tiny scandium J-frames they just hurt. The .38 may be a better choice for those.

      I have a .357 magnum, however I like how it handles the .38 special +P rounds, their my favorite revolver load, following closely behind is .22LR Hyper Velocity or mini mags.

      My personal favorite wouldn't make the list of the 50 most popular rounds. I am a fan of the .357 Maximum. Yeah, it's tempermental and finicky, gives the best performance when pushed to the limit and is sometimes rough on the equipment, but so's the redhead I've been married to for 28 years. God luv 'em.
