You know I had the same itch a while back but took a different route. And everybody is right about the prices, astronomical. I bought a S&W 629-6 5" 44 Mag in stainless instead of going .357 route. Had em before, wanted something different so got it. LGS wanted $960. OK, bought it from Grabagun.com https://grabagun.com/s-w-629-6-5-44mag-classic.html for $828 with $7.99 shipping. I bought a sweet Galco holster for the difference in price. So point i'm making is do the research, get the best deal you can.
