    Taurus model 82

    Has anybody had any experience or own a Taurus 82?

    I have been looking into buying one, and would like some opinions on them.

    Pros and Cons

    There are a lot of folks here on TA.net that love our 82's! A reliable, accurate, no frills revolver that works all the time - what's not to like! It seems to be comfortable for men folk with large hands as well as for myself, with arthritic smallish hands! Being a revolver appreciating person, I can think of no con's (well, if I was dreaming pie-in-the-sky here, I guess I could say that I would want one in shiny stainless!)

    Overall they're very similar to Smith & Wesson's K-framed Model 10 Military & Police.

    That is a solid 100% reliable, accurate, plain Jane, bread and butter working gun, that will get the job done under any circumstances.

    With a modicum of care they should last many generations.

    How did this end up in Rossi revolvers, I thought I put it under Taurus revolvers?

    I own a Model 82, as well. Plain as day, no frills, and no flash. All it does is shoot accurately and reliably. Where's the fun in that?

    This is where this belongs. No harm and no foul.

    The 82 has been a bread and butter gun for Taurus since 1971!!

    I've got a stainless steel model that is only a few years old. It's part of the CCW carry rotation.

    I love mine, it's an early 2000's production. Like was said, dead nuts reliable, very simple, no sight to mess with.........it does the job and I think it's a darn good looking gun. No longer made in stainless, but the 65 is essentially the same gun in .357 and still made in blue and stainless.

    Plus you can find them for $320 brand new, what's not to love. A little more and you can get a 65.

    I have an 82, 4" in blue I picked up a couple of years back. It is my all time favorite handgun and a nice big brother to my wife's 85UL. It shoots nice especially at the range with 158gr-swc or 148gr wc. I carry 125gr XTP in mine. They are accurate, reliable, solid, and fun to shoot. I also have a S&W 15, which I also love, but prefer to carry my Taurus 82. Below is my youngest boy, who loves taking it out on range day.

    I went with the 82 over the 65, because:
    1) I never shoot .357 rounds anyway.........
    2) I have an unhealthy obsession with all things .38 spcl
