Hombre, have you had the opportunity to try Taurus yet?
Going out today. I will post some targets if I can hit em.
Dug deep last week, oldy but goody. 1962 Smth model 10-5. Dad gave to me when I was about 15ish. I think round count is about 4 billion or so..., its smooth as drawn butter, still tight as a bank vault and accurate. They dont make em this way anymore unfortunately. Shes not pretty anymore been rode hard and put up wet more than once. Id still feel total well defended with her by my side.
I don't care if the blue is worn off. That just tells me it works well.
Meanie, I shot it when I went to MO a few weeks ago. Very nice. I like a gun that is big enough to control. My hands are a bit big for the PT111 I sold. This is a bit heavier but fits inside my cc vest very well. With 2 speed loaders in the right side pocket and the gun in the left, they even out. So far no one has said anything about it printing.
I managed to bust about 15/20 clays set in a wood pile at about 30 feet. Double action is smooth as silk, to me. But it was easier to shoot double action rather than single. I like the orange front sight and adjustable rear. I put a Hogue grip on it and that made it my gun. I also like the black coating. Don't know what it is but it suits me and seems to be wearing well.
I like it. I have read bad reviews but i think it may just be a lot of Taurus bashers. It is, in my own words, a badass 357 3" snubby. I met a guy who says he can teach me to shoot. I am loading some more or less top loads for the trip to his range. I am happy with it. Even more so than when i got the PT111.
I some how am more attracted to firearms that look like this. Worn, used and still looking pretty.
Honest wear is good wear, true patina and hand fitted over time is slow process.
The Pietta. gang is all here
colts 1851s in 44 and 36 (army and navy)
Remy 1858s also army and navy 44 and 36
One outcast seperate pic , 1862ish?? Sheriff style in .36. Nickle and horrid laminate grips till I find something else to dress it in the nickle is sure easy to clean though l.
These cap n balls are my joy, currently I have more fun with them than most any shooting of late.
You get outta here with that awesomeness.

I have 4 revolvers. A S&W model 586 that I bought in 1985, a model 60 made in 1969 that I had personally engraved, and two H&R 22 revolvers. See pictures below.
Picked up a combo awhile back .
.44 with attachable butstock check one off the old bucket list. 1860 Army made for CVA circa 1978 ish......nicely done Italian by Armi san marco. Its well fit good tolerances reflected in its accuracy. I don't believe the stocks really caught on during war of northern aggression but it .makes 100yards no sweat to put lead on target. Rolling your own bullets is a whole separate enjoyment also. Thank goodness the guvement says its not a gun, or IT could be caLLED a .44 cal SBR
Meanie, I didn't get targets but when I went to visit my friends in Mo. I took the Taurus out and we shot clays off a wood pile. I don't know how many he put up but I drained 3 mags and hit all I shot at. We looked in the pile of logs and didn't see any whole ones, so either I'm not as bad a shot as I thought, or the 692 has a mind of its own. It is a fun shooter and the Hogue grip and weight of the revolver tame down recoil from heavier loads . It's a keeper. I keep it tucked inside my concealed carry vest and have not had any problems with nosy people.
