Nice piece. Taurus guns are good guns in the sense they are well designed, functional guns. Reliable and generally accurate. It's just that their quality control is spotty. One gun is perfect. The next is crap. The problems start if you get a crappy one and have to deal with their customer non-service department.

And from what I've heard, they have a lot more issues with their automatics than they do with their revolvers.

That IS one FAT handled pistol. As accurate as anything I've ever held though. Just don't understand why it has to have such a "cob" for a handle.

Just kidding brother,thats a nice clean little pistol.i wouldnt mind having one like that.
Wray, I can always count on a good laugh from you, thanks again. But seriously folks, I'm not a revolver guy but I've enjoyed shooting them in the past. I wasn't going to spend $400+ on something I could potentially not shoot or carry. But, I have always wanted a little snubby .38 and for the $ I think its a good little gamble.

If I had to pick a round to get shot with, it'd be the issued 9 mill stuff...as long as I'm allowed a catcher's mitt!

I think you did good, and for a pretty good price too. Not a steal mind you, but a good fair price, one I'd be willing to pay.

Their revolvers are also generally known for being much better quality than their autos, but I haven't shot any of their autos so I couldn't honestly compare.

Found myself staring at two nice pieces in my hands today. A Taurus 85 in 357 and my Kahr. The snub was NIB. Guy wanted to make an even swap. And as I'm looking to go back to a snubby, I just couldn't give up my 40. But I was almost right there with ya on the Taurus thing though.

Congrats on the new purchase. I picked up 856 (same as the 85 but its a 6 shot) in .38 this past weekend and love it. Its now become my daily ankle carry.

I'm a Taurus guy in the sense that "you get what you pay for" is not always the truth. I believe you can get a well made gun at a good price and the Taurus has always fit that bill. I've owned 5 of them and still have a PT1911ss, PT111 Mil Pro and the 856 above. I've put hundreds of rounds through the 9mm and close to 1000 through the .45 and never had an issue.
