While my carry gun is a G21C, I use a Taurus M85 (all Ti) for a drop, er, backup piece.

Uh, so anyway, Taurus makes some pretty nice revolvers. Mine will take a steady diet of .38+P and never gets fussy. They are a great value.

In stark contrast, Smith revolvers aren't what they were fifteen years ago for a whole host of reasons I'm too tired to get into this a.m.

Nice gun, Niner.

Hopefully you never have to use it except for targets

Sweet little piece you got there. I myself have never owned a revolver.

Judging by some of your recent pics, that might very well be true.

Re: Another little carry piece

My friend I talked about in your other thread got the S&W for graduation.

He was wearing it with a IWB in a t-shirt and shorts and I never noticed it.

He said 5 rounds of the .357s had his hand sore for a couple of days from pressure where the frame meets the web of the hand.

Incredibly light/small little monster though.

Not exactly, the 340pd is a Scandium fram j-frame that weighs almost nothing. Awesome carry gun, but kicks like a mule with full load .357s. I think I have the record at the range for shooting 50 straight without taking a break...

I got the Taurus for ~$300 or so and the S&W lists for over $900

I have the S&W 770 aluminum airweight of that design. Seems like it would work at relatively short distances.

Nice. I have an S&W Airweight 640 (I think thats the model, hammerless DAO) They take some practice to shoot effectivly, but their shape and size make them pretty easy to conceal.
