    I had a taurus 66 it would lock up every 20 to 25 r but it was real accurate but I did not trust it at all

    Is there any place near you that will let you handle, dry-fire, live fire, drool over one?

    If you are buying a revolver and can't do the above, I would recommend a S&W or Ruger. They work, are american made, and can be fixed without hassle from customer service.

    I live in FL and if you are in the panhandle area, get a hold of Jay's. There are shops in Pensacola and Crestview.

    Very interesting im thinking about getting the 617 too. I haven't seen one in tallahassee but for the most part all the reviews I seen were good.
