First post! I purchased a 3" black model and have had it since about the 28th of February. This is only the second revolver I have ever shot, first I've owned, and also my first Taurus firearm. Due to this I can't make comparisons to other revolvers, only the semiautomatic pistols that I own and have handled. I've taken it to the range once and put about 150 rounds mixed of 9mm, .38 spl, and .357. Based on my initial range trip I find it enjoyable to shoot, accurate, and swapping cylinders is almost as easy as changing the magazine on a semiauto. I'll be taking it out for a longer range session in the next week or so, but I'd be more than happy to answers question anyone may have about this revolver.
