            taurus revolvers are just clones of smith and wesson designs with minor differences between them and an obviously lower level of fit and finish. if you replace the springs they're fine.

            they're also seem ridiculously cheap because everyone sells their old rugers and smiths and god forbid their colts for way more than they bought them new since they don't make a lot of them every year, so you can walk into a pawn shop and see a bunch of beat to shit $800 sp101's and $1000 686's next to a brand new $450 taurus

          There’s been a couple different anons just this year that bought Taurus revolvers, and had to exchange them for Rugers since 2-3 chambers of the cylinders weren’t aligned and they were badly shaving lead.

    I have a Colt trooper mkIII (police variant of the python) and it's honestly not great. The rifling is great but it's about as accurate as one would expect from any sort of pistol. You can reload it pretty quickly with a speed loader but 6 rounds is very limiting in an SHTF situation. I will admit, it is nice being able to fire both .38 and .357, but that's about the only considerable upside.

    You're all around better off getting a modern handgun like a Glock or a SIG for any practical purpose. By all means get a revolver for fun, but in an SHTF scenario, the Trooper is being handed off to a no guns friend of mine and I'll be carrying either my Glock or Makarov

      There's really nothing special about it.
      I don't know how else to tell you, but the *173,000* rounds or whatever has some fairly serious caveats. Here's what we'd need to know:
      >what ammo
      >was it cleaned
      >what part(s) are they suggesting survived
      >are they suggesting no yoke tube peening occurred
      >did it need endshake bearings
      >did they need to fix parts rather than replace
      >any part replacements

      I have never seen anyone provide answers or testing methodology which means it's just garbage marketing.

      the most common handgun caliber is still 9x19, so good luck finding ammo for your boomer crap, because no one stacks .357 or .38 anymore. at the end of the day, you'd be left with an expensive paperweight. also, have fun finding spare parts for a high end match gun in a war torn shithole.

    Some of my friends are real country and like to talk about some "SHTF" scenario.

    One, JaMarcus, claims that if an EMP blast struck the USA then many people would die yet country people would survive the best. Hunting, fishing, farming, gardens, guns, far from the blast and violent chaos of a domestic conflict, survival skills.

    I tell him that the most important thing in a scenario like that is probably the people you know and the connections you have, because mass co-operation is required. First the people you know, then the skills you have, and lastly, the supplies you have.

      Your friend is a tard for the most part. The majority of folks in rural towns don't hunt, farm or fish on a daily basis, much less for sustenance, and it's hard to feed an entire family with just a small garden. We have day jobs and drive to walmart for groceries every week. Plus we've got a shitton of old fatfrick boomers who will drop dead after a week of not getting their meds shipped in. That's not to say that we don't have a higher percentage of people who do match your description than urbanites but they're not an average representation. We're coddled as much as anyone by modern society

    OG one? No, they have a bad tendency to develop timing issues and that's gonna kill the gun if you don't have access to a gunsmith who can fix it. Better options are Ruger or S&W .357s. Even as a revolvergay, I'd still prefer to carry a Glock 19 in case of SHTF. I guess you could have both if you wanted lol. Its like an extra 2-3 lbs.
