I have a Taurus 617 7-shot steel .357 snubbie ... it's a tad heavy to carry, but after a trip to a 'smith for a trigger job and opening the cylinder-barrel gap, it's hidden in my living room, loaded with .38 +p Hornady Critical Defense ... Excellent gun, accurate, easy to shoot ...
"The gun has been called the great equalizer ... It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." --Ronald Reagan
