I took delivery of this 3" S&W model 31-1 yesterday. It is very nice! I had a couple .38spl's for my wife, but the recoil wasn't something she enjoyed shooting. I plan on renting a reamer and reaming out the cylinder so it can chamber 32 H&R magnum rounds. My friend has sold me on the fun factor that the 32's have. Light recoil and fun to shoot. I picked up a Taurus 761 last month and the 31-1 this month. I was able to score some 32 magnum brass, once fired for $.10 a piece. 350 cases followed me home.
