Very nice find indeed! There are lots of .357/.38 revolvers on the market and they all have their pros & cons. After a fair amount of research, I too, settled on a Taurus 66 (SS with 4" barrel) and I'm completely satisfied. I'm quite sure that you will not regret buying yours. I love that deep bluing that Taurus has foolishly abandoned. I went with the SS solely because the "matte black" finish is such an abomination. (To be sure, the SS finish is very nice but I would have preferred the "old school" blued finish ). It seems that many folks have issue with the stock rubber grip on the 66 but I think it's just fine. I've considered wood grips (for visual class) and also the Hogue Monogrip but believe that I will be keeping the stock grip. I had some very classy wood grips on my S&W 66 and replaced them with the Hogue Monogrip. The Monogrip is fine but IMHO just not that much better than the stock grip for me to swap it out. Each to their own.
I know that some my consider it rude to ask but can you give us a ballpark figure on what you had to pay to pick up this beauty? At my LGS, I paid a bit over $400 (tax, title & license included) for my 66 a couple of years ago and still feel pretty good about it. I hoping that you got a pretty sweet deal since there was probably no FFL fee or sales tax and 2 hours of fuel is probably less that S&H would have been. Go ahead, make us even more jealous.
Again, nice find indeed!
