A bunch of people say taurus is crap. I have seen picks of another members brand new Taurus .22 revolver. The gun was twisted as if it was in a vice and torqued. You can not ever go
Wrong with a s&w no mater what kind of gun They are known for there revolvers. I don't thank you can find a bad comment on a s&w of any kind. And they keep good value.

Good size is relative in terms of budget. I own Taurus guns and they are fine guns. But generally you buy a Taurus because you have a limited budget and can't afford a Smith.

If you've got a budget of around $1000 (that's what I'd consider a "good" size), then I'd take a look at the Performance Center models from S&W. Here is my 627 8-shot .357. Amazing gun!

All the advice has been good. Taurus and others make decent revolvers at a good price, but if you want quality and can pay a bit more for it, then Ruger and Smith are the ones to consider. The Ruger GP-100 and SP-101 are indestructible medium and small frame revolvers that will handle full house magnums all day long.

The S&Ws are a bit lighter weight compared to the Rugers and generally have a nicer finish and a better trigger. Many also like the look of the Smiths. And there are plenty of classic Smiths in like-new condition that compare favorably in price and quality to current models.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have really enjoyed my Ruger GP100 with the 6" barrel for target fun.

^ Then why look at Taurus?

If you got the cash, get a Korth Combat Magnum:

If you have a ton of cash, you could try to find one of those Dan Wesson pistol kits with the frame and interchangable barrels (snubby to "let me whip this out" in two shakes).
