I had one just like it with the rossi name on it and a polished finish. Loved it, but needed money, only reason I sold it.

Taurus makes awesome guns no doubt about that. There semi auto 22's dont seem to be that great over all but like so many others 22 pistols ammo is key

To Each his own so enjoy the Taurus and I am sure it won't be your last revolver. They can become addictive.

That's all I want, revolvers. I guess I have to add a 1911 someday, but I'd be fine with nothing but revolvers.

Hey, I like the M9, except for that fat grip. Its the issued ammo I hated.

Nice looking gun IMO. I just picked up a Taurus 605 .357 magnum at a gun show a couple months ago. Looks identical to the 85. I've put several dozen rounds thru it so far and I love it. It also is very easy to conceal. I wear it IWB and barely notice its even there.

Good questions to ask before you purchase!

The money is gone, so it's too late to be asking that question. So get'er out to the range and let US know how it shoots!

BTW, it looks great!
