Im looking for a good but not expensive revolver.Its mostly for home defense and shooting range any suggestions?
It wouldn't be my first choice but a 22 could be used for self defense.They can usually be picked up fairly cheap and are fun to shoot. I guess the availability of ammo right now would be the down fall!!!!!How "not expensive" do you need it to be? Look for a good, used S&W, Ruger, or Colt. A .38 special will usually be significantly cheaper than a .357 (which, of course, shoots both). Several people here will disagree with me, but I don't see anything wrong with a .22 as a first revolver -- fun, inexpensive to shoot, and, I think, can also function adequately as a home self defense gun. I know I wouldn't want to get shot with one.
Don't get a "snubby". Get a moderate size frame (such as the Smith K frame) with a 4" barrel. A .357 revolver with a 4" barrel is the most useful handgun there is.
If you can't afford a used Smith, Ruger, or Colt, then look at Taurus or Rossi. Decent, very useable handguns.
You should be able to get a good, used .38 for under $350.
Very useful thanks!!!orangello said:http://www.firearmstalk.com/entries/How-To-Buy-A-Used-Revolver.html
This could be helpful.
My GP100 was not used but had been a bit shopworn; it cost $400~.
What kind of problems have you had with your Taurus revolver?Stay away from taurus I have one if there paper weights now. Its about to go back to get fixed for a second time. Go with a ruger, it may be alittle more but it will work.
It binds in DA.. I sent it back to get fixed but it still does it so im gona send it back again next time I head to lansing.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.
