I have been reading this forum for a while but just became a member a few days ago. I think that this is a great site not just for Taurus owners but for gun enthusiasts of all types and caliber. (Sorry for the weak pun.) I'm a retired aerospace engineer and have been shooting for about 6 decades. Recently, I pared my extensive gun collection down to just a few primarily defensive guns that are still fun to shoot. Two of them are Taurus (605 SH2 - Titanium 16 ounce .357 and PT140 SSP - 40 S&W) and I'm pretty happy with both of them, particularly the little .357 which I can just drop into the pocket of a pair cargo pants. I have CCWs from both Arizona and Utah which covers me in most states (even Nevada now). Anyway, I'm pleased to be here. The members are very friendly and unbelievably helpful.
