Get a .38 or .357mag! snub nose revolvers are primarily for CC and as i like to say for "when the sh*t hits the fan." so with that being said, a 9mm will be much more pleasant to fire at the range for long periods of time, a S&W J-Frame .357 will be a proverbial BIATCH to fire for long periods of time. I'd also highly recommend getting laser grips.I see auctions on Gunbroker for 9mm revolvers, usually S&W, Rugers, & Taurus, but some foreign models too. The Taurus are quite resonable, $280 or so for brand new ones. They are usually snub nose.
Has anyone here ever shot one? How does the 9mm handle in a revolver? How is felt recoil and muzzle lip? What would you compare it too recoil wise? A .38? How is controlability of the 9mm in a snubby frame? Is it comfortable to shoot? Would you recommend it?
Also, would a .380acp cartridge also fit in the cylinder
Thanks in advance for any replies.
one of my next guns will be a j-frame .357 scandium with laser grips
