They sell Taurus at the local gun store. Germans are buying them up, 357 and 44. The gunsmith says he has not seen any returns or malfunctions. He did mention shavings, maybe from bullet casings?, but it did not affect the workings of the gun. I owned a Taurus 357 in the early 1990s. I liked it a lot and trusted it. S&W is also over here but you will pay 1000 or more.

I would recommend a .357. That will give you plenty of horsepower of you need it and you can also shoot .38 Special for some light loads.

I would say a 4" barrel would be best. Balances well and is just handy.

Ruger makes a tough gun but they don't impress me. I would much rather have a classic S&W.

How is it possible for any of those guns being sold there.
I lived there many years and local stores seemed to only sell "gaspistolen"?

is it possible for a person to have a personal handgun now under some circumstances shorrt of being a banker?

Is that so? I've got three that say Smith & Wesson. A Model 19 and 686 in .357mag and a Model 29 in 44mag.

You need a hunting license or competition license. Here is a website. Frankonia.de. Top right go to waffen. Then left you choose Kurtz or Lang waffen (pistols and long arms) or flinte ( shotguns). I shop at Frankonia.

Ya, you need a safe though. Also paperwork from commander, Germans, and local and US background checks. Here are my German made beauties.

I think the problem comes in when you want to bring the pistol back to the U.S. There was a guy on another forum i visited who worked in a range near a U.S. base in Germany. He bought lots of pistols and such from people not willing to do all the paperwork to bring their firearm back to the states.
