Pistol shopping

Been looking at pistols, can't decide between a 357 mag and a 45 LC. Been leaning towards the 45 because I've been thinking if buying a 45 rifle so it would easier to stock one kind if ammo. Any thoughts?

If you get the 357 you can shoot .38 special out of it for a cheaper range day...

.45 LC??? I'd believe it if you meant .45 ACP.

That being said, depends on what you're going to do with it obviously.

Can't beat a .357 for variety and ballistic performance. Not the biggest, but it sure is versatile.

I will say a .357 mag hollow will tear a hell of a hole. If I'm not mistaken they have more barrel velocity than .45?

yes a 357 has more velocity... I plan on buying one to carry because i am in the woods a lot and a 45 acp is a defense gun but a 357 will work against bear

personally, I'm a believer in having multiple calibers. That way if there is a "shortage" of any given type, you have an alternative. Of course stocking up a bit can help make this a non-issue too
