What kind of performance can I expect out of a small barreled .357 magnum? How is the muzzle velocities? Will hollow-points expand reliably with such a short barrel? What kind of max effective distances can I expect with this kind of revolver? Does anybody have any good experience with wad-cutter loadings (I've heard they are an under rated defense round, and are gaining popularity)?

I got to tell you Sarge, this pistol in .357 Mag kicks like a pissed off Mule! It's almost impossible to get followup shots from the MUZZLE BLAST & RECOIL. That's why I went with the .38 Special...

I can easily keep a 3" group at 15 feet, and about an 8" group at 45 feet, using my M85UL Taurus. You can see that even with +P+ 38 Specials, my accuracy drops because of recoil & muzzle flash. It's still good though.

Default taurus

a little history.Buna punta owned S&W at one time and they owned Taurus,
they sent machines from the S&W plant to taurus.and upgraded theirs.taurus replaced the flat spring with coil.just look at a taurus and it is externaly a S&W.

Great "how-to" on the M85 spring change! Just bought one and will look forward to doing some work on it. Where's the best place to pick up the springs at?

I really like that Taurus UL, but I am bias towards .357 Revolvers over anything elce.

dab a little bit of non aggressive loctite to prevent the screw from coming off. It will still be easy enoguh to unscrew afterwards. Just a thought.

You will definitely be satisified with a revolver for your CCW, however PLEASE allow me to try and talk you out of a Taurus.

I know you have great taste in guns Sarge and I shoot the heck out of revolvers and know you will be happier with a Smith (or Ruger).

You really CAN come close (lower) to the price of a new Taurus in the likes of a used Smith and Wesson, especially if you are willing to go with a .38 special (even with +p rating). They are fairly abundant right now and there are [B]countless/B] different models to choose from.

As far as Smiths. . . lately. . . EVEN TODAY!I have been seeing Models 36, 37, 66 (multiple later models -3 and up), 686 (multiple), 10, 60 for the classics and some 640s and 642s. For KILLER prices!

I was in Denver today and I visited GunSmoke and The Gun Room. I was So impressed with their Smith and Wesson inventory that I made myself a promise to squeeze a buy this weekend or next.

If you are interested I would be more than happy to call and ask for a list of short barreled Smith and Wesson revolvers and prices and get 'em to you. They mentioned online sales, so I know they would be glad to ship.

Rugers are out there too, but I was really taken by the Smiths lately, especially today.

I picked up a Taurus 605 about a month ago. I personally love this gun for the range and the pocket. I would recomend some practice before putting your full trust in it for defense. With .357 mags it does beat up the hand a little but nothing horrible. Rapid fire in double action for me kind of scatters the group but if i shoot the first shot in single action ill hit my mark almost every time.
I have had people (glock heads) rip on it at the range but with hydro shock 357 i am confident that i can stop someone with a single shot from this weapon. Not to mention that being a revolver it will go bang every time.
