Just bought a Smith and Wesson 637 Airweight Revolver (.38 Special). Never owned a revolver or a .38 special before. What's a decent bullet choice that you would recommend? Not looking for something expensive. Just something that would get the job done for personal protection that would shoot good from my gun. Thanks!

load a shotshell for the first one up.
regular projectiles for the others.
you'll have one to shoot for the head
of a snake (the walking or crawling kind
either one) and the rest for resolution
of problems.
