to stop all this chatter I ,today, bought a smith & Wesson 686-6. 6" barrel 357 mag. if I shoot all six shots, I can hold it by the barrel and beat most people down. if I get tired of beating on ya I will pull my 38 snub outa my pocket and dazzle you awhile with shooting skills.

Depending on what 40 you have, a 357 Sig conversion barrel may be available for it.

Just my .02 worth. Fighting size pistol, any handgun carried by LE, military or security. Going into harms way is a higher percentage than normal. Self defense/compact pistol, carried for just that. Not a job requirement, just trying to stay alive. gypsyman

We keep trying peace, it usually doesn't work!! Remember(12/7/41)(9/11/01) gypsyman

I agree, that a fighting size pistol, by logical definition, has to be totally suitable for offensive use against multiple armed assailants, at both close and hand-to-hand range. Compact pistols in marginal calibers need not apply.

And, although I know all of the LE agencies and even the military, are going to polymer guns, mine would always be made of solid steel.
