I've heard some people have this concern with a 357 being discharged indoors. I even read one guy keeps ear protection in his safe incase someone comes in. That sounds retarded, i like the full sized 357 for its stopping power and i dont have to worry about the weight and size of it as i'm not carrying it. Anyway, is this a real concern? I'd rather keep my hearing and stop a bad guy with a round with less of a load.
