Absolutely!
It’s used only for target shooting, and being short and ported, I wear double protection when shooting it. Usually it’s shot at my Club which is No Blue Sky, meaning it’s in a concrete bunker. Loud when shooting anything.
I don’t shoot it much, but I find it fun and a very beautiful revolver.

Here ya go Johnny, a couple of 45s that used to be 357s. Once they're usable I'm happy with em. Only 6 shooters though.

Reminds me of Tuco, from the 'Good the Bad and the Ugly'. Walk into the store, pick a few revolvers, and make one.

We're lucky today, manufacturing tolerances on revolvers are pretty tight and swapping parts out gains very little if anything. Even cylinder gap decrease is negligible with different cylinders and you run the risk of timing problems swapping out cylinders not made / fitted for the revolver.

Now if we're talking 1911's they may be a different story. Accurizing some of those loosey goosey guns can make a BIG difference in accuracy and possibly performance too.

I kept meaning to add a revolver to the safe but couldn't settle on whether I wanted a .45 for all the reasons you'd want one or a .22 replica to plink away with and never think about the cost of shooting it. I'm not going to get both as I'm never going to carry either and I hate tying money up like that.

Get a .357 Magnum. You can shoot .357's and .38 Specials in it. .38 Specials are pretty economical to shoot especially if you reload.
