this will be my first thread since joining the forum and what a great forum it is.
i got my model 82 out of quarantine yesterday i went to the gun club today. i shot a couple rounds of skeet and shot the 38 special. all i can say is this is an excellent shooter, very accurate. sorry no pictures of gun or target so you have to take my word. i shot at 10 yds. free hand but single action, 1 1/2 inch group of six, low to the left about 1"
the temp. was at 33 degrees so hands were cold and i will have to put some color on sights as blue on blue in dreary weather is hard to see. overall i see more tarus guns in my future.

Congrats on your new to you 82! The Model 82 is one of the longest running revolvers made by Taurus. For a basic service type revolver it's pretty hard to beat!

Welcome to the 82 lovers club! We put white nail polish on the front sights to make it easier to see as it is easily removed with nail polish remover whenever desired in the future! :)

Awesome shooting. The 82 may be my absolute favorite gun... My 4" blued circa 2008 gun just feels perfect in my hand. Love the engineering, the sight picture, the point and shoot feel! I can shoot that gun double action almost as fast as I can shoot my autos!

Congrats ! I love the model 82, it's the most basic, no-nonsense self defense revolver in Taurus' lineup. I've never heard of one that was a bad shooter, they're pretty smooth and very accurate. Keep shooting it, and post some pics when you can !

Congratulations on the new possession, but the denizens of this forum require photographic corroboration of any claim to dispel any concern that the content of said post is NOT factitious confabulation. In other words,
