WOW thanks everyone, i didnt really expect all the great feed back from my first post, but i really appreciate it. As of yet ive still not fired it, im going to go out and get a couple of boxes of 38 specails for it, for when i do take it out. Ive allready got a box of 110 smjh win and a box of 125 sjsr rem. I bought the gun for home protection, so i do like the shorter barrel, and i dont carry so the little larger size fits my hand preity well. I must admit though with the short barrel, what kind of accuracy i could expect at a resonable range. Well i guess ill find that out when take it shooting. Untill then, i just wanted to check back in and say thanks again. From me and my gun with the lock.
