I'd guess this comes up every year or two. All my Handis are on SB2 frames. I don't care if I only shoot .38s or .32-20s. All the barrels have welded under lugs. All have been remarked with their new caliber. (Thanks Dinny!!) .32-20, .357 Maximum. .30-40 Krag, .356/.358, .445 Super Mag., etc. They're all safe with standard loads for those calibers, and I don't have to worry if my grandkid is gonna blow his head off. Amen. (Again). It's so cheap and simple, I can't believe the discussion continues.
Keep both eyes open and make the first shot good.
