It's one of the only Taurus's I don't bash (look at one of my OPs) because that was my first revolver in 4" which I recommend because of the balance and accuracy. around 3000 rounds of mostly .357 full power factory rounds, and its still running fine, just not in my hands, I sold it to my brothers. It's now a family gun out of state.
It rather impressed everybody that shot it. I bought a lighter hammer spring but never installed it, the trigger was that nice.
I hated the stock grips, I put Hogue rubber on it. The ports do tame it a bit.
I'm now an owner of a S&W M627 V-comp, and M327 R8 M&P 8 shot .357s. a cut above for 3 times the money.
