Yeah, I know you didn't ask.

Yeah, I know you didn't ask the question, "If I could get by with only ONE handgun, which should it be?" But, being the prescient, not to mention nice, guy I am, I knew you were thinking of asking it, so here's your answer:

The Ruger SP101 in .357 Mag. (but shoot mostly .38 Special in it) with a 2 1/4" barrel, although the 3 1/16" barrel would work also.

That's it. That's all I am going to say about this gun. You can do a search on the 'Net to find out why it's a such a good choice for the average Joe/Jo.

Incidentally, you're welcome.

Take care.

My very first handgun was the S&W version of this gun - the 686P model .357 magnum. I'm not sure about the Ruger, but the S&W holds 7 rounds, which is nice. I, too, usually put .38spl through it.

I've got a Taurus M85 that is comparably sized but a lot lighter. If it was going to be my everything gun (not just a carry gun) the extra few ounces would be well worth it when it came to plinking or target shooting.
