Friends don't let friends buy Taurus revolvers -- their quality control is AWFUL these day. Buy a Rossi before Taurus can influence them!

My GP100 was not used but had been a bit shopworn; it cost $400~.
Very useful thanks!!!

Possibly something to consider is a Ruger Single Six Convertible. It has two cylinders -- one for .22 long rifle and one for the significantly more powerful .22 magnum. It is a well balanced, fun gun to shoot.

My favorite is a snubbie 38+p. Inside a house a 357 would be too much and the new rem golden saber 125 brass jacketed h.p. scored 2nd in tests.My wifes s+w 442 at 15 oz. isnt cheap but i cant think of a better combo home/carry piece.

What others have said so far I mostly agree with. They didn't mention new Charter Arms snubbies, and that's good. Because their front sights are so off (too high) to hit anything. I had to machine down my .357 Mag Pug just to hit paper at 25 feet. And that is NOT a unique situation.

What kind of problems have you had with your Taurus revolver?

Wheel guns are very simple with few moving parts. One of their best features is reliability.

any S&W or ruger in 357 with a 4" bbl will do, look for police trade in's on the net, they usually can be had for around $350
