I'm thinking of adding a revolver to my collection, its intended purpose is cc. I don't know a whole lot about them as I've never owned one other than the old .22 we have (actually my wives, her dad gave it to her). I visited my lgs as they have a pretty good selection of all types of guns and a friend works there so I can get an unbiased, none pushy opinion. He showed me some Taurus model 85's they had in stock. They had the ultralite model, which they let me test fire (5 rounds) out back and the steel frame model. I liked the way it fit my hand and when fired the recoil was minimal. It was .38 spl BTW, I thought there would be a little more recoil. Keep in mind the only revolver I've fired was that .22lr/mag. The only thing I wasnt crazy about, the ultralite model I fired had an anti-snag shroud surrounding the hammer which made it a little difficult to cock. But its da so I know cocking the hammer isn't neccessary and I can understand the idea of the shroud. Basically just asking for input from 85 owners. How do u guys like it? How's the accuracy with that short barrel? Or got another make and model you like better let's here it. Gimme some suggestions. Take me to wheel gun school so to speak. Thanx gentlemen, and ladies for the help.
