I have the same gun and really enjoy it. I have probably 700 rounds through it with no problems whatsoever and man can it shoot accurately! Even one-handed (strong arm) I can shoot wonders with it with no issues in recoil period. Just this weekend at the range I had a guy set up shop next to me with his 357 S&W (enjoy them too by the way) and the look on his face when he saw what the Taurus could do was priceless. I carry this as well, although in shoulder bag or similar, because it is a tad heavy and hard to hide with my medium frame and short stature. This is the perfect bed-side firearm IMHO.
