A .357 for a first-time female gun buyer? Seriously? SMH.Oh but Taurus still has sub $300 38's and a $300 - 357 or was a month ago, LOL.
Truth be told -- as her big brother and being fully-retired - while surfing the web for revolver deals (for her) I came across a couple of good Taurus deals.
She passed on Taurus. She wanted a hammerless S&W for under $300. [Good luck with that in the current market!]
I bought one -- a Taurus 856 .38 Special +P -- for myself. It's my first revolver, but not my first Taurus. Still NIB.
What did you buy today??????
I have no problems with Taurus! I've owned several Taurus semiauto pistols: .380ACP, 9mm and .40S&W.
