Mas, Any street data on the 357 magnum reduced recoil loads from Federal or Buffalo Bore? Any practical advantages over a 38 P+? By the way, I really enjoy reading your Gun Digest Book of Concealed Carry. My only "complaint" is that it's too expensive. After reading the book I wound up paying for a new revolver (bobbed SP101), holster, ammo, etc. Keep up the great flow of information, I'm sure it's saving lives!
