Saw a couple for sale.......
Was wondering if anybody has first hand experience with one.
I just dont understand the point of a .380 revolver. but I havent seen one yet and i dont think there is much demand for them.
I actually saw one close-up and in person at the range a couple of weeks ago. It was a nice gun, but to be honest I just don't see the point of a 5-shot snub 380. Oh well, to each their own.
No need to buy other calibers if you already have a mini .380acp auto, then get the "j" frame in the same caliber.
The gun looks smaller than a standard j frame too.
I've seen one in person and it didn't seem any smaller than any other snub out there on the market. I don't see the point unless you have more money than brains.
Google search turned this up next to a DB380
Yup, that sure is, something.
The LGS has one. About $350 I believe.
I have a number of .380 pistols and have a LOT of .380 ammo. I thought about getting the revolver but really don't have any use for it since I pocket carry one of several small .380 pistols.
And it's DAO. I don't like DAO.
It's a little smaller than a J Frame.
Looks like it's decently made.
I am guessing this may not end up being at the top of the highest sales.
While its not a terrible idea, I just don't see the point.
Pointless, unless you have lots of .380 ammo, and other .380 pistols and just "want" a revolver in the same round.
I saw one... I'm just praying I never see one again!
I give credit for Taurus for coming up with new ideas... I just don't see myself buying a Taurus gun... wish they'd change the name of the company...maybe it would "help"
*yawn* 380 - so 5 years ago.
that is the problem. Anyone can sit around coming up with new ideas. Here is one off the top of my head. How bout a revolver that shoots 30-40krag. See, that was easy. The problem Taurus has is that they can't say no to a bad idea, and when they greenlight the idea they can't build a quality product.
I think these 380 revolvers are more for markets where you may not use a military cartridge, just like the large 380 ACP Glock sold in certain markets.
Some people have problems with recoil and this revolver might help.
Personally, something like a 380 revolver is very low on the list of desirable weapons. 38 Special seems to be a better choice for the little revolver.
Out there in fly-over country...
