Default Taurus M85 .38 Spec +P SS Revolver?

I am thinking about shooting up all of my .357 Mag ammo and trading my EAA Windicator with all six of my speedloaders towards a Stainless Steel Taurus M85 .38 Special +P 5 shot.

I would like to carry this in a pocket or as a ankle gun in tandem with either a Taurus PT145 or PT745 .45 ACP.

Anyone have or carry one of these?

I have a Taurus Model 85T Titanium Blue ported that I will carry sometimes in an ankle holster. Even loaded the piece is very light. It has proven to be a reliable and accurate piece as well. The down side is that with the ported barrel, while it does significantly reduce recoil with +P loads, itís report is loud. At night the flames from the ports may be as intimidating as the sound.
