Taurus 617 , 7 shot revolver – short review

This cute looking snubbie in .357 Magnum is one mean little monster. I have had many a wet dreams about owning one which thanks to my dear friend “Rotor” were realized just a few weeks ago, and has thus added to my subtle collection of handguns. Make no mistakes as the size and looks might be elusive, .357 Magnum carries a lot of stopping power and with 7 rounds is a very good choice for concealed carry.

I have been asked this question at least a hundred times and each time I have to repeat the same long answer. People ask me which handgun to buy? Which is the best? Which is not good? And in turn I ask them a couple of questions which further confuses them. Problem is, there’s no best or worst handgun. Off course money matters, you get what you pay for but then out of those handguns available in the market you may not like the one I like to buy or keep for a number of reasons.
