    I have thought about 9mm. Tick, tock... Yeah, that's about as far as I got with that.

    The wheel has a place in my carry routine, guess cause I just feel like it sometimes. Occasionally it goes as a back up, spends a lot of time in the center console or wedged between the driver and center seat in the truck....
    I read (and talk to) about guys not wanting to "switch" to .327 because they already have a bunch of .38.

    I'm thinking many of these guys hardly ever shoot their snubs.

    I found I could easily sell the ammo I didn't want to shoot. (.357 practice ammo) and as I used up my .38 stock simply stop buying it and buy .32 ammo instead. Just phase it in.

    I can see why a guy who has a bunch of reloading equipment and supplies in .38 being hesitant.

    My wife has a .327 LCR and I the .357 LCR. I'm debating whether to get my own .327, a .44 Bulldog, (okay not likely, probably more of a fun gun) or try not to "need" a revolver at all, keep the .357 LCR, but as a stash gun out of carry selection.

    But these little revolvers offer so much carry ability, draw speed and reliability it's hard to be without one.

    I voted .38/.357. There are a plethora of great guns available, ammo is (usually) plentiful, and you have power options depending on your needs. But I don’t carry one.

    When the mood moves me to carry a revolver it’s either a .44 Mag or 10mm. I can cast my own bullets, load my own ammo and even a simple WFN @1,100+ fps is going to leave a mark. But I'm old, contrary and don’t always do the “best” things. BTW, All my revolvers are six shot.
