Went to federal yesterday. Super busy there which is awesome. Both my wife and i picked up a new gun. She actually bought mine for me. She got a Taurus 2 inch barrel 38 special 5 shot and i got a Taurus model 66 seven shot 357 with the 4 inch barrel blued. Always nice to see Chris and Carole. Both just nice people.

iI'm not even gonna worry with the concealment anymore. They laws are changing so much that if a little is sticking out, then so what. If someone wants to ask me something then i have one answer, It's none of their business.  For now i have a right to carry, so i will.

Hey Freak, This is Mac.  I'm looking at old posts (obviously).  Saw u picked up the Taurus 66.  Just thought I'd share my experience w 357s.  I own 3 of 'em: 686 w6" barrel, GP100 w 4" barrel and S&W model 60 w 3" barrel.  The S&Ws are better at style, fit and finish, but the Ruger GP100 is built heavy and rugged like a tank.  The 60 is small enuf to be a carry gun but probably heavier than most semi autos.  I wouldn't carry the other two except under bulkier clothing and then not long: they're heavy weapons.  I bought the two S&Ws new.  I traded a Glock for my gp100 and very happy with it.

U  can shoot hot 357s all day with the GP100 or 686.   Both are strong and can take punishment.  The 60 is a smaller, lighter gun and  definitely more painful to shoot after 10-15 rounds.  Ive used the 686 for deer (unfortunately w no luck), I use the gp100 for fun at the range.  The 60 doesn't get much use except by my wife w 38SPL.  Don't know much about the Taurus but hope you enjoy it.  Would love to add a Chiappa rhino to my collection, for no other reason that it looks cool.

Heya Mac, I love the way the Taurus just feels in my hand and the fact that it's a seven shot ain't to bad. My wife has one that's the 6 inch barrel. I loved shooting it, but was a little heavy. It is so dead on accurate. I even had and old western style holster made for it.

I am a revolver fan and don't seem to be much of a brand fanatic, S&W, Taurus, Colt are in the stable. I like them all!. There is one odd-ball that some find ugly as sin, but I have to say it works - Chiappa Rhino. This has become my EDC most of the time. Mine is a 2" version and I am thinking of getting one of the new 3" barrel versions. The barrel being at the six-o'clock position does make a difference when shooting .357 mag or even the hot loaded .38 +P. They are unfortunately not cheap but in line with other good revolvers. The 3" version running about $750.00. Some don't like the way it looks because it is different but I can say that after 5 years and several thousand rounds I can overlook the odd appearance of the Rhino.

Given the distance between the sight line and the bore axis, the POI must cross thru the POA rapidly. What’s your sight-in distance?  Muzzle rise must be minimal

I'm a revolver guy, and I have to tell you that I would not buy another Taurus revolver.

I have had about 7, enough to know they are NOT a S&W, Ruger, or Colt, nor will I buy another Taurus.

I had problems with almost all of them, and the 1 or 2 that I didn't were ok, but trust me when I tell you they are NOT worth the money, ANY money.

I did have a couple of Taurus pistols in the 80's, and they were ok, but they went away when I bought better quality pistols.

You can buy excellent used S&W & Ruger revolvers for not much more then a Taurus, and have a quality revolver vs. a Taurus.

I have more then 5o revolvers, none of which are Taurus, and I highly suggest to friends NOT to buy Taurus.

So I will suggest to you to buy quality (look for good used S&W or Ruger) and you will be much happier.

Taurus is made in Brazil. The are also sold under the name Rossi in some calibers. Like most things from below the border, they are not of the best quality. Being a Ruger guy I put my money in them. They make some of the best revolvers around. I'll stick with my semi, but if I was in the market for a revolver, it would be a Ruger, made in Arizona USA.
