Had one a while back...got rid of it. It is a painful shooter and I could not knock beer bottles down from 10 feet away... It has a smooth and really nice feeling trigger, but there is no noticeable break so you cannot stage it. If I go the 38 spl revolver route again it will have a shrouded hammer. That said, if someone wants to trade you a Taurus for one, absolutely go for it... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
