I have owned and carried the 360 AirLite Revolver for a long time now. It's a great pistol and no one knows when I am wearing it because (i'm pretty thin) I use a crossbreed IWB holster and you can't even notice it when I wear a T shirt. Obvoiusly not a tight one but my regular ones and TUCKED in.
I use 357 defensive loads and I have to say with my little wrists the pistol kicks like hitting a 2x4 across your thumb and for finger. Leaves a red spot but never got a bruise. I shoot 38+p's for target and practice but always shoot about 15 round of the "hot" 357 stuff. Don't recommend for you if you will flinch with the recoil. -
I don't own this one yet but I do own the SW22 in stainless, and it is one of the finest shooting 22 pistols that I own. it is accurate and the weight of the pistol is perfect...love it..that Is why I want this one in Kryptec -
My husband got me this gun for Christmas and I love it!! It fits perfectly in my hand, great balance, and the basket patterned wood grip is beautiful. I shot it for the first time and the action is so smooth, the kick is less that what I expected for such a short barrel. It fits comfortably in my purse and I could not be happier, best purchase!! - LANAN DESHA
The straight skinny. The 5" barrel 629 with full barrel lug is the best balanced, best pointing, best shooting handgun I own, and I own MANY. The trigger, right out of the box, breaks in single-action at less than 3 pounds. The double-action is a VERY smooth 6 pounds. Accuracy with both 44 special and 44 magnum is outstanding. If you have ever shot a Ruger Superblackhawk 44 magnum, even with a 7 1/2" barrel, you will experience quite a jolt into your hand from the recoil. This Smith has 70% of the Ruger recoil. It is not punishing at all, even with Buffalo Bore hot 270 grain plus P ammo. The full-sized 44 magnum reduced power loads are the way to go. This may be the best 44 that Smith ever produced (I know I'll get a lot of arguments on this one, but this is one man's opinion). As for accuracy, from a rest I shot one-inch groups at 25 yards, using three different types of ammo. PMC 240 grain, Federal 240 grain, and the hot Buffalo bore 270 grain. The Smith 5" 629 can be used for home defense, woods carry for protection from ANYTHING, target shooting, with shot shells it can even take small game, and excells at plinking with reduced-power loads. This gun is a keeper. - JOE
