    Curious on how it shoots and holds up.

    Very nice. I like the looks of that one.

    When I first saw the title of this thread I thought it said "Taurus Pocket Protector". Guess that name would work, too.

    Interesting, didn't know they offered a poly frame. I have the magnesium framed 856 Taurus .38 and love it.

    Yeah the poly version is fairly new. If you have an Academy Sports nearby, it'd be a good place to buy one, they'll ship guns back for free if they're warrantied for life.

    Taurus makes poly revolvers in 38 spl, 357 mag, and 45 colt/410.

    A few years back they made a zombie version, white poly, stainless cylinder, and zombie green grips. For some insane reason I wanted it, they finally sold it. Glad They did. I prefer all metal revolvers, but the Taurus poly guns generally get good reviews.

    Just something nice about a 2" snubby tucked into a cross draw holster when you're driving. :)

    I carry my Taurus snubby when I mow the property and keep it loaded up with snake shot. If I am driving into an area of questionable reputation, in addition to my OWB carry I also carry my Charter Arms Undercover snubby in a cross draw. The cross draw is easy to get to and fast to draw from.

    Couldn't beat the price, even with my local gun shops transfer fee, I was still around $275 for it.

    Finally got around to shooting my pistol today.....the lightness of the gun caused it to shoot high a bit, but I was able to compensate after some practice. This perp would've been quite dead I think. :)

    Wanna know another cool Taurus revolver? The 450. Snubby in 45 Colt. Taurus went through a spell of making snubbies in heavy calibers including 44 Special and (I think but might be wrong) 44-40.

    I recently bought a Taurus 66, 7 round, 4" barrel, .357, adjustable rear sights, very accurate. Excellent pistol.
