I am the owner of the Taurus 617 and I can tell you I really like it. It is
similar in size to the S&W J Frame series and it can be carried in a pocket
holster and IWB. It is heavy for a concealed carry piece but having seven
rounds of .357 magnum in a revolver versus five or six was a main selling
point for me. Add in the facts that it shoots great and can be concealed
with little difficulty and now you see the reasons I bought the Taurus 617.
By the way, welcome to TaurusArmed.net, you're going to find some friendly
