Everybody has an opinion when it comes to which gun is good for this or that...here’s mine.
My favorite snubby is my Taurus Total Titanium .357 with a 2” ported barrel
and a seven shot capacity.
Yes the recoil is little stout but I find it manageable,but then I’m 6’1” and 275
I can shoot 2-3” groups at 25 feet ...but I’ll concede it’s even better with .38Spec loads
