So I started to shoot PPC. Just using my 1911. I wanted a challenge so I recent just purchased a 9mm revolver, which I never competed using a revolver.

I see that Dan wesson and the Crosman 357 airguns use shells and speedloaders. And I thought maybe it could be used as viable training. I know the trigger be slightly lower then my centerfire revolver. But I need to work on my reloads, also weak hand shooting. At least get some output from it.

Now both have a 6" barrel option, both look the same frame wise. Which one would you get? Would you get a pellet or BB?

I would need about 18 shells and 2 speed loaders.

I think the Crosman is ugly.

Dennis Adler has quite a few nice things to say about the Dan Wessons. Goldmine here! :!:

I don't see any reviews of the Crosman on his blog however.

Choice may also depend on if you are looking for a frame with cylinder latch in front of or behind the cylinder.

I have the DW 715. It's well built with a nice trigger and accuracy, and is all metal other than the rubbery feeling grips. The only pellet revolver I've shot of the same quality is the Gletcher Nagant - no speed loader with that one. Nice finish too. RC
