    My Taurus 650 is a keeper. I have never owned a Charter so I have nothing to compare it to.

    The ruger LCR is only 399. That is about 50 dolars more than the taurus and charter. That is what I would do instead of wasting time and money on a weapon that may have issues out of the box compounded by very poor customer service ( I only speak from my experience with Taurus) avoid the taurus at all costs. For everyone happy with their Taurus there are a bunch who have had bad experiences. Just google Taurus issues.

    I own several Taurus and three S&W and have never had a problem with either so I can't speak from experience about the Taurus customer service. But for just 50.00 bucks more I would go with the S&W. I know you will be happy with it and you won't have to worry about the bad reputation some hold for Taurus if you decide to sell or trade it in the future.
    If you cannot stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    If you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself..."Baa."

    If you go with the Charter Arms, Why not go for the Bulldog in 44 Special.It is very light and a blast to shoot.I have had one since the 70's and still carry it time to time.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

    I can't say about the Charter. I have a Taurus Model 85CH and a Model 605. I use .38SPL in both. The 605 will will shoot .357 Magnum but I find the .38SPL much more controllable. As to the weapons themselves - you pull the trigger and then go bang. I've not experienced any trouble with either.

    and look at what gun it is...... rarely if ever, is it a revolver of theirs. The 605 especially.... as it's been the best revolver they have made and is regarded by most people as a very good revolver.

    From your comments, I would have to assume.... 1) you've never owned one, 2) never shot one, 3) and haven't known anyone who does.

    If I"m wrong, pls ... let us know what issues you've had or seen personally.

    I would get the Taurus 605 unless you decide to go with the Charter then I would be hard pressed not to get the 44 Bulldog.

    Congrats. It's also the one my daughter likes of mine, but I'm not giving up mine.... I'll help her get her own.
