For someone that does not own a .357 but wants to ... what would be a good one to get for starting out... hopefully not with a ton of recoil

its the bullet, not the gun. so if you keep the ammo lightweight you wont have any issues

Let me rephrase then.... I know that with my 1911 I have a lot less problems with recoil than on my XDS.... 5 in barrel vs 3.3 inch barrel.. More or less just less movement of the weapon with the longer pipe on it. Under that premise what would be a nice hand gun to get?

Stock Photo. I've added Hogue Grips. So much better to handle and shoot than with the old sytle OE grips.

Ruger GP141 Heavy Barrel 4inch. I bought it brand new 23 years ago and it's been flawless. OE adjustable sites are nice. I even dropped it once and broke the rear site. Called Ruger, they sent me the rear site for FREE, didn't even ask for shipping. That's probably been 15 years ago though.

my friend and i went up to truckee area a few weeks ago. he has a colt python .357. we shot .38's and .357magnum rounds. the .38definitely had less recoil but neither were severe in the recoil dept. sure it took a second to realign our target, but after 100 rounds apiece we only stopped because we ran out of ammo, not because of anything else. he is 6ft and about 170lbs (and a weakling) but its a gun you can shoot for hours

I love love 357's. Lots of power, only a mild controllable kick, and leave no shell cases at the scene.

I also love loading it up with 5 .38's and the last one being a .357 when my buds want to shoot it. There is a definite difference. You get that look after the last shot.

I really like it as it is. Great shooter and accurate - plus I like that classic look.
