fondled some steel at the toy store during lunch hour... been bored from shooting thousands of rounds out of plastic semi-autos, been lusting for something that feels solid, something handy, something more traditional - a revolver, never shot one - was looking at some of the popular priced ones - for starters of course - hehe! .Taurus 357 snub - stiffest trigger I've ever dry fired in my life, felt like a 15+ lb pull, but pretty nice gun overall, surely it will smooth out right??? .Charter Arms 327 - crappy trigger, crappy finish. Pinches my trigger finger - OUCH! .Rossi 357 - see above .Ruger LCR 357 - a better and shorter DAO than a SIG P250! smooth constant tension, butt ugly though, I want something stainless! .Hi Point C9 - just for the fun of it, quirky operation though, upon shaking it, you can hear loose internals in there, trigger has slack, but what surprised me was the pull felt like under 6 lbs, must be from countless dry fires from non-buyers like me. comes with only 1 magazine??? yes I'm that greedy. can be very accurate I hear. even with medium sized hands my pinky doesn't completely fit on the grip, if only they've added an addtional 1/4" inch in lengh. after work, I got the privilege to wait in line at the DMV for 45 long minutes - my ticket number was 357 :yes: no joke.
