    .357 definitely.

    Picked up .44 mag last year and enjoy that. I love shooting .45LC and I've fired a mountain of .22LR out of revolvers too!.

    .357 for me. It has a good punch, but can fire the .38 for practice.

    Other for .38. You can also fire them in the .357 so they pull double duty. Probably the most used caliber next to the .45.

    .357 seems to be the way to go. It the direction im going since it has plenty of power with .357 and economy with .38

    Forum Newbie voted with his wallet today

    I have a very nice Italian .45 Long Colt. Fun gun. Use it a lot. Not real good as a carry gun.
    Neither is my Beretta 92. Nice "average" duty gun, I've had it since 1992.
    Fun to blow through 16 rounds and do a reload and go again. Factory night sights.
    A good nightstand gun. It would be easier to conceal a small anvil in your pants.

    I finally did my CCW again 'cause AZ has gone to one-day training, renew every five years,
    just paperwork & $'s. So, I wanted the very minimum size and weight that can "do the job".

    Today, I picked up a S & W Centennial Airweight 642-2 NIB. It's next to me right now.
    Good price. Why carry around the .357 capability/size when I will never go beyond .38 +P.
    I'm not going hunting mule deer with this thing, after all. And, it is not my "range rat" gun.

    It's a penetration issue with me. Why make a neat entry hole, and a pretty nice sized
    exit hole as that hotshot .357 velocity goes "searching" for something or someone else ?

    Per earlier comments, the various S & W .38 Special +P's fly out of the stores around here.
    Sorta because a lot of salesmen around here point out the obvious stuff above for
    "no-nothing" non-gunners trying to get something for the bedroom nightstand.

    They didn't have to sell me. I believe it. I'm not proud. They work. Just enough.

    .38 Special for me. It is accurate, has sufficient penetration, and comes in handguns I can actually carry everyday. No. it won't stop a charging bull elephant or an M-60 tank in one shot. But then again, I've grown old enough to know that I shouldn't irritate bull elephants and tanks!

    If you need it for something really big, 44 mag is your choice. For everything and anything else, 357 mag will do.

    44 Magnum for me

    44 mag! You can load it up or down. Cowboy loads to hunting loads the 44 mag can do it all.

    I started with a 38 special (shot with a .357 revo) and I'm still thinking it'smaybe the best starting caliber.

    I was advised by posters in this forum and the advise was darn good.

    After about 15000 rounds fired under my belt I'm still using 38 sp's.

    Accurate, not too noisy, little or no lead fouling, smaller gun wear, easy to load with moonclips, little felt recoil with an 'N' frame, cheap to reload....

    I just ordered 10 000 more lead bullets.

    After that I might think about caliber change, something like 45 ACP perhaps...

    I have the 686 with a 4" barrel. It is nice to be able to use .38 or .357.

    .38 Special.
    I know all you say "well you can shoot .38 in a .357."

    I don't want a .357.
    I like 38's usually a J Frame.

    I voted .357 but it was a close call with a .22.

    38

    I have a s&w model 28, the old Highway Patrol model and a stub nose model K. I shoot 38, 39 + P, and 357. I enjoy both of these guns, but I cary a Sig 2022, 9MM. For fun I shoot a Kimber Grand Raptor 45. I just enjoy shooting!!

    I voted for other. I have a 9mm revolver that I carry about the same amount of time as my 357 mag next.

    Cool favorite caliber for revolver

    41 mag for me. Can do everything a 44 mag can do with less recoil and more penetration.
