Have had an order in with my LGS for a S&W Governor for a long time. Guessing it'll be years before they're availalbe. Saturday I'm in a local trading post and had forgotten they carry a few handguns. Turns out one is a Judge and another is a Public Defender. I resolve to wait out the Governor. By this morning I'd convinced myself that the Public Defender was here and the Governor wouldn't be for a long time. So I went and bought it before someone else did. So now I own a Taurus. Figure best sign up with this forum and learn more about it.

Sending the registration card in tomorrow. Already cleaned it up and Frog Lubed it. Might get to shoot it tomorrow. Not much ammo left for that. Did get the last box of some personal defense .410 with disc thingies in them, and a box of .410 bird shot for the range. LGS was out of .45 and the .45 Long Colt was $67.50 for a box of 50....too much to add to the price of the gun.

I'm liking the feel of it. When I put the hair dryer to the Frog Lube the cylander seemed to get stuck...hope that doesn't happen when it gets hot from firing. Bought the PD despite all the horror stories I read on line....so....we'll see.

Welcome from the great Texas outback. :D The Taurus does not fire .45ACP. Other than that, I think you'll like it. No shortage of shotgun ammo that I've seen. Good thing for a waterfowler I suppose. I handload and load for .45 Colt, but they take large pistol primers and I've only got several hundred LP primers, don't wanna use 'em up. Bummer, but I've got quite a few rounds loaded. Don't shoot a Judge, they're for my Ruger Blackhawk.

Anyway, join in and do read the site guidelines.
