    Beautiful Pacific N.W.
    I am still fairly new here.So in turn, I will post what I think!
    Just bought a new .357 Taurus 605SS2. Already ordered Taurus combat grips,plan to use this as replacement for an ancient(yet beautiful,110% functional)Colt AGENTas CCW. Please all write your +'s,&-'s,I would expect nothing less! Will most likely shoot +P's @ range,if not carry the same.
    Anyway,here is my question; From all indications,I have been advised to work this trigger over fairly well. Can I? Do I? Dry fire it? Or do I use snap caps to work in this new Thing?(Or a combination of both)? Thanks to Y'All.

    Even though it's the common belief dry firing anything but a .22 is fine without snap caps I wouldn't do it. Don't get me wrong, a trigger pull or two will do no harm but pulling the trigger 500 or more times can't be good for any firing pin. A set of snap caps is cheap insurance against damaging your new revolver.

    Im quite certain Taurus' manufacturers suggestion in the manual is not to dry fire most of their revolvers. Get the snap caps. Its 15 bucks or less of money well spent.
