Assuming you indeed wish to shoot the thing - hypothetical costs:
38 snub .... $1000
1000 rounds ammo ... $600
TOTAL ~ $1600
38 snub ..... $1000
50 rounds 38 ammo ...$30
22 revolver .. $500
1000 rounds 22 ammo ... $50
TOTAL ~ $1600 (perhaps a little less!)
Huge difference in cost of ammo. To get proficient, you'll want to put a lot of rounds downrange. Doing that with a 38/357 will very quickly exceed the cost of a 22.
Everything else you need for one pistol will not cost any more for two (cleaning stuff, targets, etc).
Obviously I'm guessing at costs above because at the time of this post, none of the above items, guns OR ammo, are actually available and nobody knows what costs will be like once it all relaxes.

My question is being misunderstood by the last several posters. I am NOT considering using a 22LR as a defensive round. I am considering using a .357 Snubnose revolver loaded with 38 Spl +P rounds.
My question about the 22 is if I should get a snubnose version to practice the same sight-radius as the CCW gun, or if I should get a longer barrel, easier to use gun.
