re: Mother, Kids, Attic, Intruder, Gun,


Just bought my wife a Ruger LCR. 357 for Christmas. Will practice with 38s (we just did yesterday) and load. 357 in it when she carries. Agreed, not much different from a 357 and "+" 38s.

Not everyone can handle a .45. Too many people obsessed with stopping power these days and not about driving the bullet. All that power does nothing if you can't hit the target.

38 revolver is a fine weapon for a lady. Many women have trouble racking the slide on a compact (purse sized) semi auto because they have a stiff spring.


Very true. My mother can't rack my .40. She has know problem with her little .32 Beretta Tomcat. That thing is fun to shoot.

Unfortunate? A POS burglar shot is unfortunate? I think the only unfortunate part is the guy is still living.

Really? I had my wife practice with my 357, using 38 wad cutters. Thought I would get cute and put a 357 round in as a joke. Glad the gun was empty after that 357 round.

There's a lot of difference.

A .357 mag is like a .38 ++p++

Not nearly the same animal.

38 is virtually identical to a .357


Negative ghost rider, other than the diameter, not much is the same

And I love a .45 but for everyone pimping them, remember the George Harrison case a few years back, dude was beating the shite out of him, bystander walks up and shoots guy 3-4 times with a .45 with hollow points and did not stop him till he shot him in the head

Bunch of size queens in this thread. She probably didn't select a good ammo. You don't see police departments issuing .45s because it's overkill and you are more likely to overpenetrate doing less damage.

Damn, reading this thread is depressing. The OT is filled with a bunch of mini psychos. The woman had every right to shoot him, and if he died, so be it. But to wish for his death after the fact is ridiculous, callous, and appalling. Choose to indignant about the guy, but don't wish death on the guy.

Guess I should have worded that different. My point was the .38 & .357 are very close in size. So close in fact you can fire .38 rounds in a .357.

My wife has zero problems with my 1911, but a lot of folks thing handguns are a lot more powerful then they actually are.

And yeah, let that POS die. Dead men can't sue.

Hmm... My home defense weapon is a .38 special loaded with JHP. If I hit someone 5 out of 6 times with it they are leaving my house in a body bag.

Exactly. There is a ton of difference between a JHP and FMJ wound cavity.
