Hi! I'm new to shooting (approx. 3 years) and my latest purchase is this Taurus model 96. I know, that many would say, - why didn't you buy the S&M 17 Masterpeace ? Well, I probably do in the future, and maybe the model 14 too. Never the less, here I am with my first revolver and I am ready for learning the techniques of shooting, fine tuning and polishing the moving parts. I believe, that this cheap edition of a revolver will suite my goal well. I started using this one yesterday and spent about 20 rounds adjusting the sight. So, the journey is ready to begin ... I'm starting this thread for writing and reading my and others experiences with this gun.
