Smith & Wesson announced this week that it has started shipping its new wheel gun, the Model 360 revolver.

“With the growing popularity of concealed carry firearms, Smith & Wesson has continued to innovate in the popular J-frame revolver category,” said Jan Mladek, General Manager for Smith & Wesson and M&P® Brands, in a press release.
“The Model 360, chambered in .357 Magnum and weighing only 14.9 ounces, is a powerful and easy-to-carry option for those looking for a new concealed carry sidearm,” he added.
Overall, the Model 360 is one smart looking package. My one complaint would be the aesthetics of the unfluted cylinder. I guess I’m a bit of a traditionalist in that I prefer the fluted look on a revolver (though I get the why sans flutes has an appeal for discreet carry). But hey, looks are really the last thing that matters in a concealed carry piece, right? What’s your impression of the Model 360?
