    Taurus 942 .22 LR 2” or 3” Revolver.

    Wow, picked up a G&A Rimfire magazine this morning at Publix and there, on the cover, was a picture of the new Taurus 942 8-shot revolver in stainless with a 2” barrel. It is also available with a 3” barrel and a steel version also.

    I will opt for the 3” S/S version for less noise and greater accuracy. I’d really like a 4” version but 3” is acceptable.

    From the picture it looks like it’s beautifully made and has the look of a classic “Kit Gun.”

    Hopefully, this little beauty will do well for Taurus and I’ll finally have a .22 LR “Kit Gun” at a reasonable price.

    A magnum has more power but the noise is very loud with a short barrel. The shorter the barrel, the louder it gets.

    .22 LR is good enough for me and I don’t need much ear protection when out plinking. Ammo is also much cheaper in .22 LR.

    I've owned an S&W model 34 since around 1980. The fact that it is cheap to shoot and handy has made it my favorite handgun. It goes everywhere. Hunting, plinking, to the range, etc. I agree that the 22LR is more practical than a 22 magnum. I can't see getting a magnum unless I had a definite reason, like I hunted a lot of racoons or something else of that size. I would get a magnum only if I was going to carry it a lot and shoot it very little. Or if it was going to be a safe queen.

    That said - I have a Savage 22 magnum rifle that I just love. I bought it for hunting on public land where you're restricted to rimfires but it is a blast on paper at 200 yards. On second thought I could see having a 22 magnum kit gun.

    My favorite range gun is my Automag III 30cal carbine.... NOW THAT IS LOUD.. 22 mag is more of a crack than a BOOM volume wise.

    I saw "Publix" and thought, must be Florida. I don't really care for short barrels, but the 3" 942 looks like a good fit. A 4", even better.

    Yup, Longwood, Fl, a bit northeast of Orlando. Love Publix baked goods.

    I must agree on 3” or longer barrels if I want to hit something. 4” to 6” are great. The longer barrels give enough time for powder burn, hold down the noise and improve accuracy.

    The 942 is definitely on my short list. Now, I just need to find one in stock. Any suggestions?

    They are not to plentiful at this time but I was lucky enough to find a 2" blued one (which I wanted) on Armslist. Should have it by the end of this week.
