I was approached by a guy at work that has a collection of firearms. He told me he had a Taurus 605 titanium frame with the shrouded hammer. The price...3 bills! I said sold!
I have a 856 38spl in Magnesium that I have yet to fire as well as a 444 44mag in titanium waiting in line for our first outing to the range. I gave near $300 for the 856 back 12+ years ago.Yep, they did. Ten, twelve years ago. 16 ounces empty - that's a bunch of felt recoil with hot .357 loads.
