    I saw one of these for the first time at Gibson's in Kerrville today:

    4" Blue

    I was intrigued by the concept of a combo .22lr/.22WMR 9 shot in a double action. I am not a fan of Taurus pistols, but their revolvers seem to be much better. It seemed to lock up great, not too bad of a trigger, and the cylinder change was a snap. Any thoughts?

    Looks like a great trainer and plinking gun. I got no experience with Taurus revolvers though.

    Wouldn't mind having one if the price was right.

    I was just intrigued by the interchangeable cylinder. I have had a few .22lr/.22WMR revolvers before, but they were the SAA style. Even the old High Standard Double-Nine was SAA style, though it was double action. I had never seen a swing-out interchangeable cylinder before.

    Save your money and buy a Smith... I've never been impressed with any Taurus gun I've handled. A S&W revolver feels like a gun. Every Taurus I've handled feels... unfinished. I would never own one personally.

    I have several Taurus handguns and they're great, but the only exception is a .38 revolver from the 1980s that my Dad had as a back-up gun.

    Depending on price, I think that'd be a great pistol! I love the interchangeable cylinders, it makes it a lot more versatile!

    Cheers! M2

    I'd get it.
    In case you weren't aware, a .22 mag is loud and flashy out of a revolver.

    A bit presumptuous of you isn't it? Fact is, I have owned several Smiths, own a few now. and will likely own more in the future. Some were/are good, some not-so-much. I had an early 686 that wouldn't hold time for more than 3 rounds of .357. My shooting buddies still curse me for the spitting lead at them on the line. If you read the post, I was not asking whether I should buy it, but rather just asking for people's opinion of that particular handgun. I also state that I was not a fan of the brand, but was impressed with this one.
