Okay, so here's my thoughts on this. If you want to ever consider this as an SD gun, probably not unless you're looking at SD against bears. With it being a range toy, I'd say fuck yeah. If you have taken consideration to handgun hunting, these are excellent revolvers to do such with. It would also be a great gun for cowboy action shooting.

HINT:they also make a 9mm cylinder you can get with a blackhawk too. If I was in the market I'd bank up for one.

I would stay away from the blackhawk unless it's a toy like already stated. The grip looks like it sucks. You want a nice, big, cushy grip when shooting a .357

I Have a Taurus .357 and I'm not much of a fan. I can't remember the model offhand, but it's a 6" barrel with a 7 round cylinder. I've missed firing a round before because if you don't pull the trigger back all the way, it won't fire but will still move to the next round.

I take it hunting with me for self defense. But with .357 rounds, I'm not all that accurate with it. For home self defense, there are better rounds. A .357 has too much power to be shooting in a house.

That's the nice part of .357 you can always load some 38 special for home defense, I used to have the same Taurus it was a pos, I had to send mine back to be rebuilt after a couple months, but it was accurate I used to throw beer bottles up and shoot them out of the air with it

I would probably be more accurate if I practiced more with it. I've probably only put 250 rounds through it since I've owned it. I usually shoot 38's with it because they are cheaper. I'm significantly more accurate with those. I doubt ill ever buy another Taurus though

I won't either, my wife has one just got a new one back on exchange for the recall they had, it had been sent in twice because it wouldn't cycle and still didn't work, now we have a brand new one but I'm just going to sell it

I have a few .357's and I've shot a few others. Outside of the Python's and Diamondback's I own, my personal favorite is my Ruger SP101 2", available in a few platforms. I've ran the 158gr through it with no problem, I prefer a 125gr JHP when carrying, I get on target faster for quicker follow up shots. Very solid well built gun with plenty of power, performance and certainly worth looking into for around $650ish. I wouldn't part with mine.
