    Which inexpensive revolver would you trust more? A Taurus or a Charter Arms. Not any precise model, just their guns overall.

    Taurus. But more so because I've had a Rossi, and it's the same exact thing. Have never even seen a Charter in person.

    However, for a very negligible amount of extra funds, you can usually find a nice, used comparable Smith and Wesson. Something to think about.

    The only revolver I owned was a .357 from Taurus. I did not like the quality.

    That's true but I'm looking for an inexpensive revolver to use so I don't have to use my Colt in the woods.

    Any serious problems or just the cosmetics?

    I have a Charter arms 38 special that my wife likes to shoot. She keeps it in her night stand on her side of the bed. We have shot it a good bit, never had any problems.
    Also have a Taurus 9mm PT99, never had a problem with that either.

    BUT!!, I would go with the Charter arms in a lower cost revolver.

    I have owned, shot, and carried both and sold both and I would take the Taurus over the Charter. Over all quality is better with the Taurus but both will do the job.:)

    It was their 22 10 shot revolver. The trigger and hammer pull was atrocious. After about 20 shots my thumb was raw from shooting in single action mode. Then there was so much pull on the trigger that I couldn't hit a thing unless it was by luck. I sold it within the first year and bought me an expensive Smith 617 revolver and wished I just would have done that in the first place.
    I have friends who have had some taurus guns and liked them, but after my personal experience with them, I wouldn't give anything Taurus makes a second look anymore.

    I appreciate the info. Maybe I should just save up for a Ruger or Smith.

    Are you buying their 22 model? One of my friends had their earlier 357 that looked just like a smith 686 and he said he liked the taurus better. So they may make some things that are nice, but the 22 model I bought would only make a great canoe anchor.

    I've not made my mind up on caliber yet. But most likely a centerfire.
