Excellent review, Dart! Very comprehensive.
I had a BAD experience years ago with the ONLY Taurus revolver I've ever had (accidental discharge, .357 Mag 4", IN THE HOUSE when it was dropped!), so I haven't purchased any since then.....but yours looks like a sweet shooter! That "cylinder release" button in front of the trigger guard is pretty cool.
I haven't shot my S&W 651 .22 Mag in years; but after reading this, I may have to "dust it off" for some range fun!
