one go-to .357 revolver, which one would it be? Now, in processing the answer to this question, allow me to add some context. What .357 would it be if you found yourself having to absolutely rely upon it, likely in a harsh environment, without the possibility of being able to clean it after every use, or frequently? It has to work, it has to go bang, it has to be rugged. Now I know that some of us may be tempted to direct this poster toward a different type of handgun or a different caliber. Or you may want to talk about different firearms for different environs and uses. But let's just keep it simple; the .357 for all uses when one finds him or herself in difficult, possibly prolonged situations. Your thoughts supporting your conclusion will be well considered. I love you guys (and gals)!
