Picked up a Model 605 about a week ago. First Taurus, black oxide finish leaves a lot to be desired but not a bad revolver for the price. Actually wanted the stainless steel version but it was out of stock. Usually carry a semi automatic but thought I’d give this a try. Pretty snappy with 357 magnum rounds but manageable with 38 special +P. Only other revolver I own is a Smith and Wesson Model 67 Combat Masterpiece that I’ve owned since 1977. Love the Model 67 but it mainly stays in the safe.
