    I believe I'd trust the Ruger before I would the Taurus. Yes I said that even though I own a Taurus 1911 and trust it completely.

    The judge is still worthless for anything but play. The 38 could be useful but it doesn't come close to the Ruger. It weighs more empty then the Ruger loaded. Plus it's ugly.

    Yeah it's like the new F-150. Took me a while to figure out if it was attractive or (f)ugly. I found out it was the latter. Nevertheless it looks like something out the the movie Judge Dredd (Sylvester Stallone 1995)

    I guess it would make an excellent paper weight or doorstop....:D

    The .38 nyeahh,... could work,... but it still doesn't feel right...

    My steel framed Judge broke after less than a box of very mild Magtech cowboy loads. I don't think I'll be trying the plastic one...

    And the grips on the .38 are just hideous, they should have used their "ribber" grips which are actually rather comfy.

    By the way, the LCR has an aluminum frame. Only the fire control housing is polymer. This POS has an actual polymer frame. On a revolver. Oy.

    I definitely like S&W's Bodyguard 38 plastic wheelgun better. Don't think I would trust an all polymer frame with +p's over time.

    Since when did S&W start making plastic wheelguns? Must be pretty new as the only other 1 I'm aware of is the Ruger LCR.

    I have not been able to find ANY Smith & Wesson polymer frame revolvers...

    Can you provide some model numbers, links, or anything to substantiate your statement?

    I have a Ruger LCR and I've put roughly 2000 rounds of +P through it so far, and no problems.

    Me no likey, but I'll bet they will sell. Most people don't research their firearm purchases. They simply stroll into the local shop and say, "that one looks neat, I'll take it."

    :rolleyes:

    Just introduced at SHOT 2010, Smith&Wesson Bodyguard 380 and Bodyguard 38. Both polymer framed handguns with integrated Insight lasers. There 38 has an aluminum alloy upper, poly lower, stainless barrel and cylinder, and has an ambidextrous release.

    Thanks. Still looking for something on it. I have no doubt that if S&W makes it, it will be good.

    Well Jesus Christ on a cracker,... :eek: - Now I've seen it all.
    I mean,.. it was expected for Taurus to do something like that, but I really thought that the last bastion to fall would be S&W to start doing sixshooter tupperware. Maaaaan was I wrong,.... I guess the last bastion to fall will be a tupperware 1911,.... or will I be wrong twice today,.....:rolleyes::confused:

    Gun makers go where the money is... If tupperware is the in-thing, then everyone makes polymer guns.

    They do have to make a profit and I don't blame them. Just so long as they don't stop making the traditional SS and blued beauts that we've all grown to love.

    Oh and Spittin' who wouldn't have bought a mint 629-1 give the opportunity? I always love to hear stories of quality impulse buys. Right on.
