I carry one for self defense because I feel it will make some one deader then a 9 :wink: . recoil isnt really any worse then a 40. If I am not carrying my xd357 then I am carrying my 2" 357mag.gsfmiker said:350? where is this? if you don't buy it, i want it! If you already have a 9mm, go for the .357. You won't shoot it as often, but sometimes it's fun to shoot something with a bigger BANG than the 9, even if it is more expensive. I'd recommend just renting it when you want to shoot it, cuz i dunno about a .357 for a self-defense weapon (although surely some would argue with me, I find it's too loud and recoils too much), but the ranges near me only rent the 9mm XDs.
its not to bad. I would much rather be shooting it then my pm40. Besides I really doubt I will be needing many follow up shots. Now the Airweight 2" Mags are whats brutal.gsfmiker said:
