    I've been looking for a CC weapon (both nice and relatively inexpensive). I've been looking towards a kimber ultra carry, but the $ says no. I've been looking at taurus' titanium in .38 special. Anyone have pros/cons on taurus?

    Great little guns. Light and sturdy although I would recommend getting the .357Magnum instead of the .38. You can use .38 rounds in it for practice but carry .357s.

    Owned 2 at a time. The 85 UL Ti. I think it was about 13 oz. It was great to carry but harsh to shoot w/ +P ammo. Sadly, I sold them both. Now, I'm looking for another. Go figure...

    Taurus makes decent guns for the money, but their trigger actions have much to be desired. if you're looking for just a little packing gun that you dont mind kicking around, the Taurus is your gun.

    if you want a decent gun with a decent trigger, consider a Smith and Wesson airweight or chief's special.

    i have a M85 ti ultralight ported concealed hammer, its super comfortable to carry, and easy on maintenance, and loads of fun to shoot, and it holds +p rounds, over 1000 rounds and not a hiccup yet

    the reason i'm going with taurus over s&w is the weight factor. S&W has an ultralite, but something about it just doesn't sit well with me. I shot it and it was kinda meh. Basically i need something small, light, and inexpensive. My preferred choice for CC is a kimber ultra (either cdp or II series), but my financial situation says no. So i'm going for a basic, functional firearm. The taurus titanium revolvers looked like a good option

    sounds solid. I was eyeing the M85TBC. I liked the bright blue. Definately a different look. If not that i was looking at the one in shadow gray, but i haven't ruled out the .357 models
