Cool gun bro. You do know that if you carry too many handguns in a concealed manner someone is bound to notice.

I actually got it because my son-in-law has been looking for something that would fit in a vest pocket, he rides a Harley, and he has a .357 I've had my eye on. We may do some trading. If not this will make a good backup for my 9mm as I gave Jason my .32. I think I did pretty good so far. I traded a .22 rifle with a cracked stock for a H&R .22 single action which I traded for this. Here it is compared to my PF-9 size wise;

That really is compact. Amazing how small they make handguns. .380 is a wicked close range caliber I was told.

Yep, a lot of firepower in a small package. I've read that modern .308 loads are very comparable to 9mm's. The Hellcat weighs 9.40 oz. Here's another pic to show the size;

Nice find, Norm. Many years ago, before they went nuts on the handguns here, quite a few grouse found out just how well a 380 works in the blueberry patches.Hope that you get the 357. Take care.
