Default Taurus 650 & 651

Anyone here have experience with a Taurus 650 or 651? I'm currently looking at them as a carry gun. I prefer the 651 since it allows me to shoot DA and SA. I know it's not a Smith, I have a 6" model 19 and love it but money is tight right now so I'm looking at the Taurus. I'd love to hear any input.

If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...

A good friend of mine has a 651, and it shoots well. The trigger needed a little work (it was to hard and gritty at first), but other than that it's a decent gun.

For carry I'd go with a 650, I see little need for an exposed hammer on a snubnose revolver (other than looks and SA shots at the range). In a defense situation, you're going to use DA fire, and it's a lot easier to draw a hammerless revolver.
