Well, back around 2007 I decided I wanted a pump .357. The 45 Thunderbolts were few and far between and never came across a .357. Then I heard there were problems with them. It appears they started making them again briefly in 2011. I had always wanted a SS one. (and always planned to pair it with a 6inch 608 revolver, for a non black, non scary, politically correct pair of defense guns. I walked into the LGS today, and there was one on the shelf. It is the 26 inch barrel 14 shot one. Looking forward to getting it to the range. I know many have had issues with them, but if I luck out and it is good to go, great. Plus it has a lifetime warranty. I learned to shoot on an 1890 .22 WRF, and still have it, it was dad's and his dad's. I have always wanted a .357 pump. Man its a short throw compared to a lever gun in .357. Anyone that has one I would love to hear how it turned out.
