I'm going to wait awhile before I consider purchasing to see early reviews of the new gun. It may be a good fit for me as I'm looking for a gun with low recoil but stronger than a 22lr.

Lots of good recommendations. I think I'm going to shop for an older used revolver. I don't care if it had a few dings. I prefer 38spl+p over 357mag so that might save me some $.
