I will soon have a Taurus 85 (2850021FS).

I am a 72 year old man , I live in Idaho, 20mi. west of Boise. We have some of the best hunting and
fishing in the surrounding areas close by.
I have hunted and fished all my life and been a shooter about as long.

My first question to the forum is, does Taurus still make the 3 inch barrel for the 85 and is it still available?

To answer your first question, I'm not sure about the three inch barrel for the 85.
You might check with TaurusUSA's web site.

Oh by the way. Welcome from South Tulsa.;)

I believe I'm darn near right by you. Live'n in Meridian and Sherrif'n in Caldwell. I've seen the Model 85 you're speak'n of but I have not seen them on the Taurus website as of lately. I just picked me up the New Ruger LCRx3" and couldn't be happier. so keep that in mind and the LCRx3" is going for a fair price too.

Yes, you are not far from me, I live in Middleton. I was looking at the Ruger LCRX3", but I thought they were to light to my liking and the prices were a little to high for me.

I know a few of the cc sherrif deputies, one of them lives on the cross street near me.

Welcome to the TA forum. Currently, Taurus only makes the M85 with 2" barrels. I'm happy you joined us....
Taurus use to make the 85 with a three inch barrel. I have seen them for sale on gun brokers.

Welcome to the best forum on the web from Texas, haven't seen the 85 3 inch for a long time - it is not on the web page.
