    I'm thinking about getting a Taurus .357 with a 6 in. heavy barrel. Any suggestions?

    The gun would be used for target practice and home defense.

    Thanks for the feedback. I have big hands so large revolvers fit me better than smaller compact pistols. I can shoot a revolver 100x better than any pistol.

    taurus makes quality weapons. their semi-autos may be a bit bulky, but they're reliable and don't cost a kidney.

    Had to send mine back for service because the action was binding up. Got it back in less than 4 weeks and it's run like a champ ever since.

    I've had two Titanium Ultralight Model 85's and they were great.

    I still have a 617 .357 snubbie and it works great. IMHO, why buy a Smith when the alternative is so much less expensive?

    I have a 6" Stainless Taurus .357 and it's very nice and very accurate as well.
