I have that Taurus in stainless. Awesome gun and accurate. I gave $375 for mine. Now have a Bushnell Elite 2-6x on it.

Just found a S&W 29-3 44 Magnum with an 8 3/8" barrel for $450 plus shipping. Other than a few very minor things, it looks almost new. I told him I'd take it.

TWW - Me thinks you held out for a real winner! In good shape, that sounds like a decent price. One of your grandchildren will thank you one day!

It worked for Dirty Harry. (I think that is the the same barrel length he had too. )

Beautiful gun! I'm glad you held out for a Smith. You won't be disappointed.

Awesome price too.

Good luck!

Dude, good score. I'm sure I'm in the minority these days, but I still prefer blued guns, when given the option (at least for those uses that don't require extreme corrosion resistance.) A blue N-frame S&W, it just looks "right," enjoy.
