    Big fan of J-frame air weights. If you can swing the extra, I personally would lean toward a Scandium model rated for .357, I think it's the 340. You can always download your .357s to .38 Special +P or standard load. I have always been leery of non enclosed ejector rods.

    I'm a big Ruger fan myself, but I bought a Savage Model 11 for the Thanksgiving hunt this year. I'm incredibly happy with the Savage. It's shoots
    much better than my Ruger.

    Got this 2 weeks ago for what I thought was a stupid cheap price ($723). Always wanted a .308.

    This should work for home defense from invading pit bulls.

    Entry-level AR in 5.56, either the S&W M&P Sport II or the Windham Weaponry SRC.

    I could afford it for about an hour. I was gonna shoot a .50 machine gun in the desert for one of my birthdays until I found out how much the ammo cost. :doh

    And I think you're right to go 10.5 on a 5.56. You'll still be blasting a ton of unburnt powder out the end of the barrel, just less than a 7.5. Your bullets will stabilize a little better and tumble less. 62 grains are almost required in the short barrels if you don't want to keyhole at 50 yards. The flash and concussion on mine is disturbing, though the Kaw Valley linear comp helped a lot. 20150720_152948.jpg
