I own an excellent SS taurus model 85, gun is pretty well flawless, older wood grips. like it alot. But recently found a lock model 638 in a pawn shop. He wants $379 (unnegotiated price) for his lightly used gun.

would you all make the trade if the logistics all pan out?

I'd keep the taurus you know it works , why fix it if it ain't broken.

Are you looking to pocket carry?

If you're looking to have a covered hammer spur, that's one way to go. The 638 S&W would be lighter, too.

Normally I would say go get the Smith and dump the Taurus as quick as you can. other than my 24/7 OS they havn't made much I'm a fan of. However, I don't think they're horrible by any means and olderguns is right. Ya got it, ya like it, why chance on a used gun at the pawn shop?
