John H: They have the 357slowed down so much today that over penetration is not as
much of a problem it was 20 yrs ago. The Lawyer factor has taken the over
penetration factor out of it. A lot better SD today. JMHO
gunlover111: Great review ,,,, I wish It was in HD .....
I just bought this gun and am very anxious to do my own review.
JayMann357: I know .357 is way more powerfull. Thats actually why i DONT carry it with
them. Over penetration, as a concealed carry holder, you are responsible
for every round that leaves that gun and at close range a .357 would go
right through a person, the wall behind them, and possibly into another
person. .38 +p rounds are very good for self defense and dont over
penetrate. Also they are much easier to shoot accurately. id rather hit
with 5 .38's then miss with a .357 because of the recoil.
captainpegs07: Lee classic loader is cheap and fun to use if you do not already reload.
JayMann357: Thanks, I really do need to mount that camera. Next vid will be shooting
the different ammo including those Buffalo Bores! Those things are wicked!
roseroyceGHOST: 110 grain .357mag will help to reduce the problem of over penetration.
winchester white box is good.
anthonysj74aj: Well its thursday and I have one in my hand. Range day tomarrow!
arch068: Cool video, lots of good info. I have always wondered what a gas checked
bullet meant, and now I know. Thanks.
PhoenixRugerRedBird: Have you had any trouble adjusting your rear sights? I can't get the screws
JayMann357: sweet man, let me know how you like it! Might i suggest you pick up some of
those Buffalo Bore 180 gr. LFNGC rounds. Make that .357 feel like a .44!!
wombobars: you should carry .357 in there man, i have a gp100 ive never shot 38 out of
it but the difference is night and day, i mean 357 is the same size bullet
as a 38 yet more powerful than 45, 9, i mean anything, any duty/protection
handgun round except 44 i guess but idk who carries those for protection.
38's..are less effective than 9mm imo, not that it couldnt kill in one
shot, but personally i'd like the reassurance of 357
indycmw: Good review brother!!
ShootnTexasStyle: bought mine in April and love it so far. I had to change the grips since
every time I shot magnums the trigger guard would come back and slap my
knuckle. I take it with me every time I go to the range.
R Kirwan: Buffalo Bore makes a low flash low recoil .357 38+P and .38Sp hollow point
you may want to look at for personal protection without over penetration.
William C Light: For a fellow who has never done a review, you did a great job. Well done.
PhoenixRugerRedBird: The windage sight to be exact.
moderndesignworks: beautiful gun, but you need a better camera.
Toyuzu: Very nice, comprehensive review. I've watched hundreds of gun reviews, and
you did just fine. You should do some more. One tip though - get a tripod,
or mount the camera in some way. (Even taped to something can work pretty
well if you don't have a tripod.) Then you'll have both hands free to
manipulate the gun. I have the same model, and I was blown away when I
tried to load some 357 and they wouldn't go. Ruger made it right though,
and replaced the .38 SPL. cylinder with a proper .357.
Jb hamilton: hey, good review. have you found a good holster for it? cant find one for
JayMann357: Thanks, Ive bought a few more guns since and will be doing a short review
on them as well, plus some vids at the shooting range.
anthonysj74aj: Mine will be here on thursday!!
JayMann357: That was the only problem i had with this gun. Threre werent any holsters
out yet. The best way to go is custom made online. theres a few different
websites that can make one for the 4 inch barrel. The best one i could find
at the local sporting goods store was a Galco Summer Comfort made for the
2" barrel. Its an IWB holster with an open muzzle so the barrel sticks out
the bottom but being an IWB holster you dont see the barrel. That was the
most comfortable one i had.
JayMann357: Dont get me wrong, I LOVE .357 mag! its my favorite round. Very versatile.
But theres alot to consider when carrying for self defense. Muzzle flash
and report are another thing. At night a .357 mag muzzle flash could temp
blind you and if you are indoors, the report could be damaging on the ears.
But they are fun too shoot. and this gun was very fun to shoot!
JayMann357: You will love it! Great little gun.
JayMann357: I had to adjust my windage slightly right one click but no, i didnt have
any problem adjusting it. It does not move alot, only a couple clicks each
