Just brought the wee lass' home a couple hours ago. Anyone fired this thing in .357 caliber ? She weighs in at 17 oz or so I believe. So im expecting 'er to bite a bit. Gonna put some .38 fmjs thru before the big kahunas lol.


11892 Galco Stow n Go. Seems pretty decent so far for IWB
Speer Gold Dot 135gr. .357 down the pipe!

With that barrel and no weight I would expect it to bite a little.

What is that a 2" barrel? It will kick, and get used to it since it makes the 2nd round on hard to aim in a fast shooting situation.

I have a 4" barrel, titanium .44 mag I shoot 320 gr Cor-Bons through and it takes quite a few rounds to get used to the kick.

Looking forward to hearing about the range time.

Moab its just a bit shy of 2". And nice comment about Detroit in your signature haha. This city is the reason I now carry an LCR for backup with the CZ.

Alrock I took 'er to the range, well back room of the shop, after work....Ahhh Detroit Perks. Fired like a champion ! I cant wait to put more rounds through. The Hogue Tamer grips def soften the blow though, seat that air pocket right between your thumb and index and you can shoot .357s all day long.

Hope this quick crappy quality vid works.

I had a Rossi in 38 about 30 years ago with a 2" barrel. Weird gun, had an adjustable rear site. Took some practice before I was able to hit anything with it.

I shoot a CZ P01. Such a great/reliable piece of work.
