    Does anyone know about the availability of these power guns! Both are .357 revolvers by Zastava, on is a full sized, the other a 2.5" snub-nosed. Still I think it's .0.5" longer than it's Taurus counterpart. Would like to know, if anyone ever came across any of these two, anywhere in Pakistan. Btw, according to the site, they are both SA/DA!

    Haven't seen either one of this in Karachi or Hyderabad.

    Few or none of them seem to make a 3" barrel, which appears to be the best compromise between a 2" snubby and the 4". I've read that a 3" is many a time easier to conceal as its slightly longer barrel provides a better counterbalance...

    Indeed KF, that's why I was looking for this snub-nosed Zastava shortie, coz 2.5 inches I guess is the closest we could come to the non-available 3 inches. The Taurus shorty is 2 inches only.

    Yeah, I believe Taurus makes snubby, 4" & 6" only, excluding the longer lengths. Pity they don't make 3" and 5" which I feel are better compromises overall...

    Yet, what do you say of the accuracy of such a powershot coming straight from a 6" hardened barrel?

    A 6" is excellent for hunting and mid to long range handgun shooting due to greater accuracy (due to longer barrel)... but for defense, I'd like something shorter, easier to wield around. Its not like I'm at a target competition....

    If God forbid, the BG gets up close, the 6" may become a hindrance. Here a snubby can succeed where all else can fail...

    Short and sweet: 2" for conceal carry, 4" for home defense, 6" for target, hunting and plinking (though plinking with a .357 Magnum may turn into a rather expensive endeavor :P)

    Just right. However, the recoil of a magnum shot with this caliber coming from a shortie, DOES require quite a handling and practice to ensure second or third shot placement. Yet, no doubt, for CC and ability to move the weapon around unhindered, the snub-nosed would be the most ideal thing to have.

    In the US, Ruger and Federal teamed up to make the .327 Federal Magnum, to take the place of the former .32 Magnum. A .32 caliber bullet, with energy levels equal to that of (or slightly better) than the .38 Special. Allows for an extra shot in the cylinder of the same size. So far, I believe only Ruger's excellent SP101 has been chambered for this new round.... lets wait for the others to catch up....
