    Very Interesting! Would have preferred the MKV lockwork, but it could still be nice.

    $699 is the MSRP. Sure, that will be what they actually cost for a while, but that won't last forever. For comparison, the Ruger SP101 MSRP is $719. Yes, it's .357, but it's also five shot. And the .38 SP101 also has an MSRP of $719. The S&W model 60 has an MSRP of $729. A Ladysmith is $759.

    I'd say they have this priced right where it should be; in fact, I'd say the MSRP says they want to be a serious contender, not just sell a few to collectors.

    If the trigger on the Colt is nearly as good as they used to be, then that will make it more attractive than a Smith or Ruger. Not to mention that neither Smith or Ruger currently make a small frame 6 shooter in 38.

    Kimber, Colt getting into the game...I for one love it.

    Maybe S&W, Taurus, Ruger will produce some new models now.

    I'd love to see the S&W night guard series get some new life or for someone to make an 8 shot .327 mag K frame size revolver.

    Taurus is usually pretty good about reading trends etc - bring back the ultra lite 7 shot snubbies maybe? Or another run of the .327 snubbies?

    Regardless, hopefully this is a sign of wheelie good things to come...

    It sure is a handsome thing and I like that it has a little heft to it. Personally I see it as more of a belt gun than a pocket carry piece anyway. I expect they'll sell a ton of 'em to us Baby Boomers.

    It is handsome! At 25 ounces it's no lightweight, but I do pocket carry my Taurus 651 and that is the same weight. As a comparison to a lightweight however the Ruger LCR in .38 spec. is just under 14 ounces.

    Yea. Unless Taurus can actually stock an 817/617 & resque me, I'll likely take one home myself.

    2. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    3. Keep it unloaded until ready to use.
    4. Know your target and what is beyond.

    I've been seeing the 617 for sale on Bud's site on and off quite a bit lately. I bought one in November or December from them and was glad to get it, but I just looked and they are out again.
