New, 357 is fine. Having no light and such small capacity in a HD gun is not but that's just my opinion. My bed gun in a 21SF with TLR-1 in a dropleg with spare mag.
>>
>>28596781
.357 Revolvers are TERRIBLE enclosed space guns.

Not only is the .357 loud as fuck, the sound is even closer to the shooter because of the gapping of the cylinder.

.357 is a terrible HD round. Get literally anything semi auto.

Even an AR-15 in doors is quieter than a .357. There is no POSSIBLE hearing damage, there is only ASSURED hearing damage.

AR-15s are better all around HD guns, and no .357 can even come close.

>>28596781
The S&W TRR8 Is a military revolver in 357 Mag. 8 shot cylinder. It has its uses in the context of using a breaching shield with a side arm. I believe a revolver can use higher powered loads as well
>>
For a gun you leave in a room until needed, picking a sidearm is a poor choice. They massively compromise the very important feature of ease of aim for the sake of carry-all-day portability.
And to also massively compromise capacity for the sake of personal preference by choosing a revolver on top of that, it's far from ideal for the role.
But if your priorities and budget are such that it's the best you have and you don't care to buy something better for the role and train with it, there's nothing wrong with that.

>>
Revolvers are an outdated platform. But a .357 mag is still perfectly adequate for self defense. Magnums are more useful for animal defense because the extra power is wasted when shooting people. 9/40/45 will all get the job done, have larger magazines, and probably less recoil as well.

What other kind of handgun will shoot magnum loads? You have a special snowflake auto pistol that shoots .357 and 10mm. Anything shoot .44? .41? etc

.357 is probably the best handgun cartridge out there. You can load it to whatever you want, it has a long history of killing, far better ballistics etc.

>responds by saying "with modern powders and bullet designs the magnum cartridges are a thing of the past"

This is the leading edge of the new 9mm fanboy caliber wars.

First they said "9mm may be a little weaker than 40/45/whatever, but superior capacity more than makes up for it"
Now they're claiming "9mm is literally just as lethal as 40/45/whatever"
And the next step is for them to claim that "mm is even just as good as magnum rounds".

It's driven by a feeling of insecurity, and no matter how much they circlejerk and shitpost, the insecurity never goes away, causing them to make wilder and wilder claims.

You also see the same thing with AR15 fanboys who claim that the AR15 is the most reliable gun ever.

No that's fine for HD. I use one for that exact purpose. But be aware you will sustain hearing loss if you fire it inside. One of the reasons I'm looking into a suppressed HD gun. But the .357 is still a great cartridge with a lot of power and accuracy. What's the problem?

This may surprise you, anon, but not all guns are designed with the military and law enforcement as the metric. Revolvers are not outdated in the context of the civilian shooter and if you stopped trying to be an oper8r for five seconds and look at the logical upsides and downsides to each type of weapon, you might see why revolvers still sell in high numbers.

Reload like breeze after respectable amount of practicing. drop man like it was made to drop man ever since its creation. Shoot through glass and car door then kill the target and continue to exit through another car door. Can load saboted rifle bullet (perhaps ss109 or black tip) for special penetrating purpose such as defeating body armor or shooting engine block and have its reliability intact.

Outdated and obsolete only to retards faggots.

Not outdated but it certainly has some impressive competitors. Depends on what you want. If you would rather a smaller number of shots with less chance of failure (albeit catastrophic failure when it happens) but more force behind them, then revolvers are the choice for you. I personally like the ol' lever gun, wheel gun combo. Share ammo between the two.

.357 is a pretty reliable manstopper and has been for years. If someone wants to use it, they aren't "wrong." This is a huge problem in this community: my opinion has to be right and therefore there is no room for personal preference.

Fucking shoot whatever ammo you like already unless it's a meme caliber, which I wouldn't exactly call .357 Mag.

You can get a Coonan 1911 cambered in .357 magnum and it's not a special .357 mag just the regular one that loads into a revolver. Also you have the Desert Eagle which gives you three excellent mag cartridges to choose from .357 mag, .44 mag, and .50 Action Express
>>
>>28604333
I remember seeing a desert eagle chambered in .22 once, can't imagine how many rounds it holds.
>>
>>28604333
Except they're fuckhuge and ergonomically ridiculous because they're trying to fit a revolver round into an automatic action. I've fired both of these as well as a 686 and a Rhino and I can tell you that while .357 is fun out of an automatic, it's not ideal in comparison to firing them out of a revolver. These rounds were designed for a revolver and that's where they work best.

>not using a civil war musket load with a mini ball with bayonet attached. Bitch please, if your going to overkill go balls out

His powder argument is stupid unless he specifically said one cartridge is greater than the other because its more efficient/has more case volume. Its true that bullets have come a long way but the 357 mag covers more ground than other pistol cartridges, very much so when used in a carbine. Also load all your pistol reloads hot. They cannot do what a 357 magnum offers.

I hold to my theory that most young gun enthusists on this board have been warped by a childhood of playing Pokemon. Nothing against your game, but everyone here just "compares states" to define the best gun/caliber/etc.

No one ever talks about the last class they took, their IDPA rank, or their practice habits to increase their speed and accuracy.

Nope, just armchair theorycrafting and an increasing attachment to their gun of choice.

I wish you guys would put more energy into believing in yourselfs, and less time debating your gun stats.

People here literally believe that they are not properly armed with a 357 magnum, a glock 22, or 1911.

I never said he was wrong, what I said was that .357 mag was perfect adequate but better options exist (mostly due to .357 mag only being available on sub optimal platforms). I said revolvers are an outdated platform for self defense because they are, that doesn't mean that theyre ineffective.

this is stupid, how many rounds you need to kill someone? well depending on how you shoot, if you feel comfortable with having onlu 6 shots its fine, i dont, i like the hi cap magazines and having another close to me if i know im gonna be in troble just to be sure. in a room it will give you tinitus for life for sure. any caliber is apt to kill someone, just some calibers do it slowly, therefore the shotgun and supersonic rounds are the best to one shot one kill, and talking about the handgun rounds theyre all the same except for extremly low power cartiges, theres a study on that ill post it

Lolno, large diameter lead monoliths like what you would load in a .45-70 will splatter on a rifle plate. You want high velocity for dealing with armor. In any event if you've got guys with rifle plates attacking your house you should probably reevaluate your life choices. Lighter armor can be defeated with a carbine chambered in a non meme caliber like 5.56 nato or 7.62xanything

How is, say, a 686 "suboptimal" in all situations unless you are calling something globally wrong? I can think of a lot of options where a .357 revolver would be optimal. Maybe the problem isn't the "platform."
>>
>>28606038
the shock from the impact could damige internal organs even if not penetrates the body, even could brake some ribs and when the broken ribs are in the chest it could be extreamly dangerous, in most of the cases that will stop the agressor

There are still cops that carry .357mags if there department allows. Not many though.

>>28603922
The .357mag was originally designed for LE. Back when cars were built more like tanks, cops needed a round with more penetration than the .38spl could provide.
>>
>>28604355
Probably 10. Unfortunately nearly all .22lr handguns have around 10 rd mags, even if they are large enough to hold more rounds. I'm confident my Buckmark could hold more and still have the mag flush with the grip.
