    I have owned four revolvers in my lifetime; all of a different caliber, and all Rugers. The first was a SP101 in 9mm, the second was a Vaquero in .44mag, number three was another SP101 in the new .327 federal mag, and my current revolver is one I have been wanting for a very long time - a GP100 3" barrel with the factory grips in .357mag. I have been foolish in that I traded one for another in an effort to find the right one. In hindsight they all were the right one and I wish I had them all back. So, in reference to the original post...I prefer the GP100 in .357mag. Putting it in my hand is like putting on my favorite old pair of slippers, it's a very comfortable fit.

    Most of my revolvers are .38/.357(mostly because I have a weak spot for S&W J and K frame revolvers) But I also have and shoot revolvers in .22, .32, .38 S&W, .41, .44 spl. and mag., .45 acp, and 45 colt. I think I just love shooting revolvers (though simi-autos are always in the mix to)

    I get in to .40 & 10mm the most..The 380 38S 357,Them three are just a easyer to handle. So they make a nice day on the range.

    .40 and 10MM are not revolver calibers, although there have been revolvers made that chamber the 10MM. I know of no revolver that chambers .40 S&W. The .38-40 has almost exactly the same ballistics as a .40 S&W, but there are no modern revolvers made for .38-40.

    S&W has the model 610 in the N frame that chambers both 10mm and .40 S&W. Not sure if they are still cataloging it. I saw a Taurus add the other day that showed a .40 S&W in a small revolver.

    Model 610 no longer catalogued in general catalogue. Taurus makes model 405 revolver in .40 S&W.

    That's why a .327 is a great load -- 4.55 foot-pounds of recoil and 138K power compared to 13.95 ft/lbs and 192k power in a .357. Problem with .327 is availability. Ratio of kickback to power greatly favors .327 fed mag. Problem with the .327 is there's not a lot of it and you gotta pay for it.

    I've got a 4" Rossi 357 and find it is not hard to conceal with a vertical shoulder holster and/or a Bianchi paddle holster. Of course i'm kind of big, too. 6ft and 230 lbs.

    I am a big fan of the .38 Special; it's a very versatile caliber for just about every activity!

    I voted "Other" because I think the .38 Special needs its own classification, and also, the revolver I have that is most fun to shoot is a .22WMR.

    I know of no revolver that chambers .40 S&W.
    The Charter Arms Pit Bull is a currently available 5 shot revolver in .40S&W.

    I almost bought one, but decided on a 1911R1 instead.

    Where was .38 Special?

    That's my favorite revolver cartridge.
