Today I saw two nine-shot Taurus .22 snubs. One was nickel or stainless, the other was blue. Both had adjustable sights. They were neat-looking little guns, but I've never shot one. Has anyone here had any experience with them? If so, how durable and accurate are they?

They make a very nice little "kit" gun . We sell them in our store . The customers seem well pleased . They make a nice little plinker as well as a solid defense gun for the recoil sensitive . Reliable and easy to operate .

I have the 8-shot .22 mag in stainless ultralight. It is pretty accurate and the only thing I have noticed is a little binding when closing the cylinder if hot, and only on hot southern Arizona summer days. It did this a couple of times when I first bought it, but never since. So, no real complaints.

I don't have a snubbie, but a Taurus 22lr revolver model 94 w/ a 4" barrel. Has been very reliable over the years and FUN to shoot!

My wife has a 94 that she just LOVES to shoot. And she's good enough w/ it to make any BG more than a little nervous...:what:

If you're planning to use it for SD (or backup to your SD), I wouldn't get a barrel any shorter than 3". The .22 loses a lot of velocity quickly, & it needs all the barrel it can get. 4-6" is even better, and the compact frame makes it smaller than a .38 snub. And they're a lot more reliable than the .22 mouse-autos.

From what I hear, Velocitors are having a good showing in SD shootings...

I also had problems with mine binding one of the few guns I have actually gotten rid of.

I had a model 94, 4". The DA trigger pull was awful; long, crunchy and inconsistent. Never bonded with it. Sold it.

Roscoe,

How much does your stainless Ultralite weigh? What is the frame, cylinder and barrel made of?
