    I'd reconsider your choice of caliber. You can find a Taurus 85 for under 300. 22 mag is about $10 a box of 50. You can get 38 spl for $15 a box. Given the choice I'd take a 38. Buy a box of factory wadcutters for carry ammo.

    The gun is cheaper and skip a six pack a month to make up the difference in ammo price.

    Nope, they don't because while the Taurus might be steel framed, it's not US made like the Ruger is and we all know that US made guns made of polymer and aluminum are better than any foreign steel gun, herpa derp.

    I like the plastic grip frame. The recoil impulse is not as harsh with it. It doesn’t have the sting that all metal grip frame has. I compared my Charter Undercover directly to an older Rossi 351. Even though the Rossi was several ounces heavier, my Charter had less sting. Same with other brand snubs, I’ve shot.

    I got the S&W Model 63-5, 8-shot 3" barrel. It's a keeper.

    I really like two tone revolvers.

    but apparently the innards are not holding up well in the aluminum frame ones

    For the OP and his woods walks and desire to shoot snakes one of the RIA 38 snubs might be a better choice. And the price for a new one shouldn't break anyones bank. They are just over $200 at Buds. And the 4" barreled version is a couple of bucks cheaper. 38 rat shot is a lot more effective than 22 rat shot.
