I'm the proud owner of a plain Taurus 85 Blue Steel Snubbie. I've had it for just over a year and it has been nothing but great. It Has over a 1000+ rounds though it and the trigger action is freaking awesome. It smoothed out after about 500 rounds. It a great little gun that serves mostly as a house gun and I occasionally carry in a either a uncle mike's IWB holster or in a Fobus paddle holster (which is very comfortable). The gun stays loaded with Car-bon DPX +p 110 rounds, Or Remington Golden Sabre rounds. I have Safariland Speed Loaders hidden all over my aparment, and in my car. So in case I need to reload, I don't have far to go.
I hope to learn a lot from Taurus Arms, it appears to be filled with lots of great information. As a new firearm owner, I need all the useful knowledge I can get my hands on. I wish everyone a Happy (and safe) New Year. Take care.
