Westy, Taurus revolvers are quite good for the price. I own one and I've been testing out a couple of different models that a friend's gun shop bought used. I shot a couple of boxes through a model 817 (.38 +P, 7 shot ultralight snubnose) and although I didn't care for its looks I did find it very accurate and pleasant to shoot. The "ribber" grips are great, follow up shots where quick and easy.
However, Taurus customer service sucks. They will eventually honour their warranty, but it can take a while, a long while.
Now hatred is by far the longest pleasure;
Men love in haste, but they detest at leisure.
