A very interesting handgun. I have not seen one of these yet, but I maybe interested in one myself. Something that ugly has to be good. Really, from what I know about Taurus they make good quality guns. I know they are not as high as Sig, Kimber, Colt and S & W but for the price I believe they are a very good value. I think this would be a good one to use in adverse conditions like I find myself in at times. I hate carrying a prized S & W for a ride on my dusty 4 wheeler rides or to the river where it is getting wet and sandy. The dust seems to be the worst, it gets in all the little cracks and takes a complete take down to clean. One of these Taurus revolvers, I wouldn't worry that much about. I'll have to check one out the next time I'm at the LGS.
