You like the .357 magnum...

...and you have a spare $1800 lying around? The Desert Eagle L5 would take care of expending both ammunition and money.

10 rounds of .357 Magnum firepower in a new, lightweight chassis: http://ontargetmagazine.com/2016/09/the-new-desert-eagle-l5/
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Interesting.  I do like the .357 magnum. I just don't like it THAT much!

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Its a deep pocket gun in more ways than one.

I do like the .357 Magnum cartridge in revolvers. But I have no inclination towards a huge semi-auto pistol like a Desert Eagle. However, the cartridge works very well for white-tail deer from a rifle. I like it in a Winchester Model 1873 or 1892 lever action rifle.  :)
