Okay.
Why are you looking at it? Are you going to buy, trade, sell? Any specs?

Look all you want, but keep your distance.

The money saved buying a Taurus isn't enough. Spend the extra and get a Ruger or a S&W.

Would you say its not a good magnum or just not up to par with a Ruger or S&W?!

Taurus makes a fine firearm from my experience. They aren't Smith & Wesson quality, but they are still great for the price point.

Yeah thats what id looking for and i mean i shot one this weekend and loved it, and i mean if i could save some money for another build im doing that'd be ideal.

If you're looking for a gun that costs less than a Smith or a Ruger--and those are definitely the best makes--take a look at Rossi. The only one I ever owned, a .38 Special snubby, was a fine little gun for the money, and lately I've seen a lot of posts on various forums from people who own their .357's and think highly of them.

I'd still suggest that you spend the extra for a Smith or Ruger. Good used ones can be had for a good deal less than new cost, even in today's insanely inflated panic market. I think you'd find them better than what you shot.

You are going to get different opinions. If you are hooked and like the gun, buy it! You should be comfortable firing, accurate with shooting and trust it with your life.

I don't like any large caliber revolver with a rubber grip. The gun is supposed to rock in your hand. I would consider it if you can buy a wood or smooth polymer grip. I thought the houge monogrips were the cats meow. After a month or so I noticed my accuracy was going downhill. I thought I needed to practice more. Finally I found a nice set of Rosewood grips for my Blackhack. My shooting instantly got better. Now I have 2 lightly used monogrips for sale.
