Michael Neely: Nice review, I have this 605 and I found .357's to become pretty painful. I
first time out I got a recoil bite on my thumb. I think I'll continue to
use .38 spc +p, just my preference. Nothing wrong with this Taurus
Stephen Berry: Nice Video, thank you, trying to decide between the Taurus 605 Protector
Poly, The Ruger LCR 357, the Kahr CM9, (PM9, too expensive for me) and the
Diamondback DB9, I am leaning towards the Taurus, or the Kahr, the Taurus
is nearly $100 less in my area than the Ruger and I have heard of too many
problems with the Diamondback, and its only slightly less expensive than
the Kahr. Thoughts?
Razbeareeze: Well, I did purchase the Blackhawk Serpa holster for it but, as some may
already know, Taurus .85, J frame snubbies work fine but the "Poly Pro"
does NOT fit the Serpa and it doesn't look like Serpa makes one for this.
Now, I'm curious. Several folks use this as the primary carry. My question
(and, please, no flames, it's an honest question) is since this really does
"kick like a government mule" it really is hard to bring this back on
target & only 5 shots. As a BUG or, for backpacking, yes.
vulpixgrant: I will be getting one of these to replace my Taurus model 85 as my daily
carry piece. I hope it's as reliable and accurate as that little piece of
junk has been for 5 years. Shoots ever time, ( 1600 rounds so far of .38
and .38+p from the ultralight ) Also way more accurate then any revolver
with a 2" barrel has the right to be. The thing that sold me on this is the
fiber optic sight and having the hammer.
Sick Fellah III: LRC? LCR?
garageguy879: have you done any more shooting with it lately? if so,how has it held up so
nerm77: Excellent review bought one thanks
O Sallent: JohnBall, when you draw your revolver, use your thumb to shield the hammer
(works the same as a shroud on a revolver) and it will prevent your hammer
from ever getting caught on your clothing.
Donnie D: Bought a Taurus Protector Poly .38 SP + P thid morning. Very accurate for a
snubbie. Feels great in my hand and is a really sharp looking gun I think.
By the way, enjoyed your review. Thanks, Donnie D
garageguy879: I finally got mine,I gave it a good cleaning,some oil,then fired 50 rounds
of Federal 130 grain target ammo,,then cleaned it again,,didt get some grit
out from it,,fired 20 more feds through it,,very smooth operation,,then
fired 50 rounds of 125 grain .357 Remington ammo,,still smooth,,,as far as
ejecting the spent casings,,same thing as your but no big deal,,great gun
John Ball: thanks kingd3001. you're going to like it.
rufflesworld: good video. very informative.
Paul Cotto: It looks like Deckard's gun in Blade Runner
federalwarhawk: I have come close to buying this gun on several occasions, but always
change my mind at the last moment, mainly because it's a Taurus, looks
cheap, and is kind of ugly, but it sure feels good in my hand.,
jwentzien: I have the .38 +P version....under one pound!....my main carry....
Chris Ellis: What model/size holster is that?
L Franyie: Lcr is Ruger, Taurus is garbage. You decide. Plus what can you do with a
little revolver and BIG grip like that. Lcr 38+p Ruger its much better.
djuel88: What blackhawk holster do you have for it?
ZNA03: Great video, just got mine at a local show and so far love it and cant wait
to shoot it. Any feelings on dry firing? I don't really care because the
gun is pretty cheap but it is a gun I CC so it needs to be reliable, just
new and all my friends want to feel the trigger pull and I like showing off
the low profile hammer.
Daniel Hayes: i love mine and yes it is a hoss
Steven Grundt: This is my first revolver and I really like it. I like the longer grip
better than the shorter one that comes with it. I use mostly 38 specials
with it which I find are more manageable than using 357's.
John Ball: its been a great gun. I do like the LRC though. for me, I would choose
between the Taurus or the LRC. let me know which one you go with and how
you like it.
kingd3001: good review getting one of these bad boys myself I hear hornady cd 357
magnum is good for snubby's b/c of the low flash as well as manageable
John Ball: **but they are close enough that it very well could fit. Leave me a quick
comment after you shoot it. I'd like to read you impression of it. Thanks
for watching. Good luck.
John Ball: It might. The frames are very similar but the trigger guard on the poly has
a different shape and the grip looks just a bit bigger. But they ar
Brian Jackson: I would never go diamonback. They seem to all fail at some point. I have
shot all of the guns you referenced. The cm9 will take some getting used
to. I have only put a 200 rounds through it but I'm still not fully used to
it. Same with the LCR. The taurus has the best trigger imo ( in single
action ). I am not a fan of double action trigger pulls. Much harder to be
accurate with. That's why I like the Taurus the best. You can choose single
Razbeareeze: Good review but I kinda miss all the F-bombs. Nah, not really. Pick mine up
tomorrow. The sole purpose for this polymer 357 is for hiking in the
Appalachians. Had a Taurus 44 Titanium for that purpose but sold it
foolishly several years ago. I'm getting a Blackhawk Serpa retention
holster for it. The lock makes it perfect for hiking or even running and
you're not going to have to backtrack a mile or three to see where it
dropped into the leaves! If you are a serious hiker, every ounce counts!
Livelifechill: I feel like every compact revolver review is described as having a heavy
trigger. Are there any revolvers with a light trigger?
dustinxrx: I just bought this too, do you think it will fit a fobus ankle holster made
for the regular 605?
Lacerda George: Hello! This gun is really good? It is sufficient for self defense? Thank
L Franyie: Ruger lcr 38 is better than 357 for several reasons: weight less, less
recoil, 38+p is more the enough for self-defend purposes, in 2 inches
barrel 357 cannot develop his speed due the gases burn almost outside the
barrel creating an useless blast, this blast outside barrel do nothing
toward the bullet.If you have any doubt about it, check the speed of both
(38 & 357) with the same grain and 2 inches. The result will shock you.
They have almost the same speed. 357 mag in two inches is useless.
