Perfect balance between power, size and handling.
The Korth is my favorite!
But I gotta go with the Ruger SP101. Wonderful balance of shootability and size/weight. Sights are very good, and recoil with a Hogue hard nylon Monogrip is no big deal. The .38+P defense loads are fun to shoot.
All my best,
But most days my Favorite is my Ruger SP101, 2.25", .357magnum. It's just a good every day carry gun.
But my 2 close 2nd Favorites are my Ruger GP100, 3", .357 magnum and my Ruger LCR,
.38 special +P. They are also good every day carry guns.
Everything you need, nothing you don't. Traded for this one, and sent it into S&W for a factory tuneup.
Last April began with me dropping a kilobuck, inc s/t, on a just re-released 1999 PC627 UDR, a 2 5/8" 8X .357M. Other than a poorly fitted grip, which was too small for my hands, it was an instant hit. It has been a common range bag occupant - even displacing my 627 Pro - which had displaced my original 627, a 5" JM PC627 V-Comp, holder of the best DA trigger S&W I have ever felt. Here is that UDR - with some moonclipped .38 S&W Special +P 158gr LSWCHP's, my defensive round for .38's & .357M's.
I funded yesterday's new purchase with the sale of my older 5" PC627. Said purchase was another 2 5/8" PC627 V-Comp - my second vote for that gun as my favorite revolver. I have one to keep loaded for a house gun; another, a range gun. Periodically, they will change roles. I could belt holster carry one as personal protection. They lay waist to the SPC plates with ease - and I never miss. As a snubby, they point beautifully - and have enough sight radii for my needs. No, Bambi and Thumper at 75 yd have nothing to fear - but a close in hog or small bear would likely be dispatched with .357M's. I believe I have found my favorite revolver!
That PC627 is a real beauty!
I WANT ONE!!!
