    I’ve been going back to revolvers also. Bought a 686-6 about a month ago and put a 625 in layaway. One of my first center fire handguns was a Taurus model 82. Very reliable and accurate. Lost that one in a divorce.

    Thanks, like revolvers too! This is a gas to shoot. Very smooth DA. Pairs nicely with the Henry lever action .45 Colt. Love that caliber Action SADA - Caliber .45 Long Colt - Capacity 6 - Material Carbon Steel - Grip Checkered Square Butt Walnut - Finish Bright Blue - Sights Pinned Patridge Micro Adjustable - Barrel Length 6.5 - Overall Length 12 - Weight 42.5 oz - Smith Wesson makes it possible for you to own a piece of history-in-the-making with these Classic revolvers. Theyre the finest new handguns possible with designs harkening back to the most famous and collectible guns that Smith Wesson ever constructed. Each is based on a model known for legendary performance then enhanced with modern advantages. Theyre the timeless best of both worlds Smith Wesson Classics. 069BF444-7A61-4634-ACF2-2AB56A8603E5.png

    my first, non g.i., handgun was a slightly used steel taurus 85 for $205 in 1985. i replaced the oem wooden grips with pachmayrs for shootability. it was my only handgun for too many years as i transferred around for work alot, still have and love it. a few years ago i got a second, newer, steel 85, it doesn’t seem as substantial but is perfectly decent too. taurus is the best of the second tier (charter, ria, windicator) revolvers. too many folks who chased a 9mm polymer semiauto pistol as their first defensive handgun in the past year would be much better served by a steel taurus 85 or 856 revolver, imho.

    I like revolvers as well. I was spoiled...first handgun was a 4” S&W Model 27-3. Never looked back.

    An SP in 9mm is about the only revolver I’d be interested in.

    A .45 Blackhawk Convertible quenches my thirst for Big Bore and I got no use for .38-.357mag

    Revolvers are yucky, they don't have enough capacity, they are hard to shoot, they are old fashioned, they aren't cool. (And if I can get enough other folks to believe that, then there will be more for me and maybe prices won't skyrocket. :) )

    My results with Ruger DASA revolvers is the same as yours with Taurus. My Taurus experience has been all pleasant with revolvers. Almost all pleasant with semiautos, but that little pt22 never was reliable. Seems a common issue for the model. At least I didn’t have anything in it... won it on a bet.
