Taurus 605 Protector Poly




What do you think about this video?

PartsGuy: Good review. I have this gun and like it fine. The grip is very comfortable, and does make the recoil manageable. Only issue was finding a holster, but the versacarry works surprisingly well once it's broken in.

Joe The crusher: Do you know if this is something I could buy in CA? 

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 far?

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 recoil too

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 or double.

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 you.

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.

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
