Re: 357 ?
When I was looking at .357's, I checked out taurus, and just didn't care for it. The one I looked at was a 7 shot, and the cylinder walls were way thinner on it, seemed a little lite as well, but I like a heavier gun.
I haven't looked at the colt you are, but I liked the other models I looked at. If your not sold on those 2 brands, check out ruger as well. I went with a 6" GP100, and I love it.
