I also am lookng for a 357 for the RI State Police pistol series. Most folks recomend a S&W, 6 " barrel. How about some input? I have shot a few revolvers, never owned one, so I could use your advice. I don't want to lay down too much $$$, but I also don't want to buy something I grow out of in a month or so. BTW, if you have something to sell let me know.
