The 856 is still fairly new. But a few people on here seem to have them. Can anyone who does post some comparison pics with other small frame revolvers, and maybe some semi-autos. I'd like to see it versus gun like Smith J-frames, maybe 85s / 605s, any single stack 9mms anyone might have, etc.. I think this would be useful for anyone thinking about this gun.

Thanks.

I have a picture of it next to others in this thread: https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/taurus-revolvers/417973-856ul-my-first-100-a.html
The 856, 605, S&W J-frame 642, Ruger LCR's all fit in the same pocket holsters and are carried there easily. The Kimber K6s can also be included for pocket carry but is heavier.

EDIT: Below is the weight of each gun unloaded and loaded. If you plan to carry IWB or OWB weight for these really doesn't matter. For pocket carry it can based on the weight and style of the pants you're wearing. Btw, I have a very accurate digital scale.

I had found that. I was trying to figure out how you managed to record it landscape, but have it display portrait.
