    That S&W 686 .357 really IS a fun piece to shoot. I've got mine only 2 months ago and it has a 6 inch barrel. Consistantly putting all 6 in an 8 inch circle @ 35 ft with .38 special Gun Show Reloads in SA and I've only been shooting 6 months and only got this revolver to the range 3 times. 50-100 rounds a trip, it's fun. That long barrel pays off. Great for mountain hiking as well, but remember your bells for the bears. Give them a chance to avoid you.

    There really isnt anything else in between the .38 and the .22 in a revolver is there? Except for maybe that Taurus 905 in 9mm with moon clips, right ? I am still new at this. Even reloads cost more tham the 9mm I put through my 92FS. Always looking for a way to stretch the range money. Already have an SR22 but I'm looking for another wheel gun to play with.

    I almost bought one, but decided on a 1911R1 instead.
    I just went to Charter Arms, thanks for the direction. They also have the pitbull in 9mm. $475 a pop though.

    The lowly and simple .38 Special is mine.

    Gonna blame this bias on "Dear Old Dad"...the .45 Long Colt. The .38 Special comes in 2nd.
    My first revolver was a S&W K .22, given to me (by dad) on my 13th. birthday, which I still have and cherish.
    Dad had (it's mine now) a .45 Colt Buntline, which was by far his favorite, then his K .38 (I occasionally shoot both).
    My first handgun purchase (at 18 yrs.old) was a Ruger Blackhawk .45 / .45 ACP convertible (I often shoot this one).
    Next to the Buntline, the Blackhawk is the favorite of all my handguns.

    I just ordered a blackhawk convertable, i had a super blackhawk and the 44 mag here is just over $40. a box!

    So now with this blackhawk i can shoot 38, 38+p 357 mag and now the 9mm with the moon clips! I cant wait to get it

    I prefer the 357 mag or 9mm you just cant beat $14. a box for 9mm well i guess $8. for 100 rounds of CCI mini mags.

    .357 Mag. I like how you can practice shooting it with .38 Special ammo, which is much cheaper.

    Of course that is also true for my .44 Magnum, by practicing with .44 Special or .44 Russian ammo, and my .454 Casull, which also shoots .45 colt ammo.

    Well if your refering to most popular as it applies to sales it would be 38 Spl followed very closly by the 357 Mag. and then there's the 22LR that out sells everything else combined.

    favorite caliber for revolvers

    I like the .45 ACP round in a nice S&W N-Frame.

    I've owned three .357's, a Taurus and two Rugers, but can no longer handle Magnum recoil well due to severe arthritis. I'm perfectly comfortable with +P .38 Special--carry it daily in a Smith 640 and have a Model 10-5 as one of my house guns.

    I'm baffled as to why the useful and time-tested .38 Special was relegated to "Other".

    .357 wouldn't need all 6 rounds to drop someone. But it sure is nice to know they're there.

    38/357 , more 38 though the 357 loaded to around 1100 fps is a sweet shooter.

    Disagree. My LGS can't keep S&W J frames or Ruger SP101's in the showcase. They're gone usually the same day they come in.

    I bought 2 different .38's last year.

    S&W 64-5 - 38 Special - 4 Barrel
    S&W 64-6 - 38 Special - 2 Barrel

    Retired Security company side arms.

    I like 'em both.

    I voted .41 mag, just to be contrary. If it were available in something other than a Taurus or a Blackhawk I might actually pursue it.

    I find it interesting that the .357 is the overwhelming choice in this poll. It dwarfs all other calibers in terms of popularity for a favorite revolver caliber.

    I love the .357 magnum as it was the first gun I ever bought on my own (a Dan Wesson .357 mag with 6" barrel!) and my most admired revolver caliber 36 years later. Versatile and still relevant as well as potent and desirable and it is not just my opinion.

    My revolver favorite is .44 Special. It will do pretty much anything needful for a handgun.

    I am rather fond of .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum and .38 Special as well. I like redundancy in mechanical devices and overlapping fields of use.

    How can you have a revolver poll and not include .38?
