    No comparison 360PD,Crimson Trace,Federal 357 Mag 130 gr Hydroshoks,carries easily in front pants pocket,light slim concealable, ends confrontations with one shot. Warning this gun not for faint-at-heart, but the 45acp type power witout bulk makes this thing a nightmare for badguys. Unlike those fakey magicians this thing would saw someone in half,pronto.

    It's night

    You've just shot the first bad guy with your .357 Magnum 360 PD. You're blind, deaf, your hand hurts and it's taking a long time to bring the gun down out of recoil.

    The second bad guy now saws YOU in half.

    The only thing MTA Tom forgot was that you overpenetrated your target and hit grandma next door. Don't bend over in the shower.

    I agree with Tom,

    Practice some live night-fire with a lightweight .357 with no hearing proctection and see how you respond.

    There was a LEO a few years back that shot a perp six time center of mass point blank with his servise .357 only to be killed by the guy with a .22 to the temple.

    Of cource the criminal died but not before getting off one round point blank from a cheap .22 after taking six.

    I guess my point is, despite the choice of caliber, don't count on one or two rounds stopping your attacker in time.

    I have one of the new Ruger SP101s in 327 Mag,...not as loud and much more controllable than a 357...and much more lethal than a 9mm or a 38spec

    S&W Model 66, 3" with Federal 125 JHP. This round has the best
    record of one shot stops with the law enforcement community.

    BFJ201... James, I tried out my friends G29 a while ago. That's a lot of power from a compact package. Wound up buying a G27. John

    It's night - when predatory cowards go looking for easy prey. Except the easy prey they picked this time just shot one of the attackers with a .357 Magnum. EVERYBODY is blinded by the flash and can't hear because of the ringing in their ears.

    Maybe these predators aren't cowards. Maybe they weren't looking for easy prey to attack in the dark. Maybe they picked the person with the .357 because they believed him or her to be prepared, if necessary, to defend him or her self with deadly force.

    So maybe the "victim's" armed response was expected. Instead of hauling @ss like predatory cowards typically do when confronted by armed resistance, maybe the second bad guy was expecting and prepared for an armed altercation. In such a scenario, the good guy would be in real trouble in addition to having the sore hand and all.

    Unlike a .357 snubby, the .25 ACP won't make your hand hurt, doesn't have much muzzle flash, isn't particularly noisy nor does it have a reputation for over penentration. Anybody want to argue a .25 ACP is a better self defense round than a .357?

    I got to see the new S&W 632 Pro Series Revolver w/Night Sights in at the SHOT Show last month. .327 mag, 6 rounds, 23 oz., 2 1/8" barrel. The Smith rep said they would be shipping in March. A sweet little pistol, they will sell well. I know I have one on order!

    Cheers,

    George

    Anybody had any experience with "Phoenix Arms"? They make a nice looking small gun.

    George, that 632 will set you back over $1,200. I'll stick with my .45

    It doesn't hurt my hand either.
