    Public Defender Polymer

    .38SPL+P Snubbie

    Not that there is really a NEED for single action on a defensive revolver, I still like how they did the hammer on them.

    Don't buy a new model gun from anybody the first year it comes out.

    Ask me how I know...

    I remember reading an interview with someone at taurus right around when this was shown at Shot Show saying they had developed a polymer snub four years prior to the ruger LCR, but didn't think there'd be a market for them.

    That is 5 ounces heavier than a S&W Airweight BUT it does look good, and unlike the Ruger is SA/DA. I'll take one.

    it's a Taurus

    S&W has one too. http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...7_757751_image

    I hear they're having trouble with the built-in lasers

    I want to know how they can call that a "zero-profile hammer". Maybe a very low profile, but not "zero". And, as for the "grip that offers the look of wood", not to me, looks like cheap plastic. With that being said, except for the ugly grips, I like the way the rest of it looks. They say a 2.5" barrel, I don't think so.

    Before anyone asks, yes, I do own some Taurus's (sp?), I'm not a Taurus hater, but those grips!

    I will take and have any Ruger compared to how taurus CS is kinda lame and repairs of this polymer gun looks like the screw on the cylinder release will backout and go missing.

    That Protector Polymer is kind of sharp looking. I'd prefer Hogue grips on it, but I'd definitely like to try one of these out. Be really easy to carry.

    The fake wood polymer grips on the polymer gun is the ultimate fashion statement.

    That's only about 4 oz lighter than my SP101 357 2 1/4" For that difference , I'll stay with the Ruger.

    Why not. Every new gun model introduced these days absolutely must have polymer in its construction.

    I almost hate to agree with you. I think other than the grips, its looks like it could be a nice weapon. I also agree about the grips, not for looks, but for comfort.

    I really think if Taurus got their CS act together, I'd be tempted to give a couple different offerings of theirs a try.
