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
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.
