    Yes. I currently have for it, a S&W logo holster made by Gould & Goodrich, B501 94, which is made for L frames and my Dan Wesson fits in it fine. I also have a Bucheimer B-01-389L-64 that fits great but it is difficult to find data on their number sequences to know what they were originally intended for. This G&G chart will aid you in finding a correct fit for you weapons to a G&G holster. As a very large majority of older S&W logo leather holsters were made by G&G, this should also help for when you think you've made a good find in a S&W brand holster. http://www.gouldusa.com/pdfs/Will-Fit_Chart.pdf

    The model 14 is the same size as the 15. The primary difference is the 14 has a fixed rear sight, plain metal front sight blade (no color insert), and in Blued finish guns; a 'satin' blue finish instead of a bright blue one.

    Addition:
    Tell your buddy to visit | The Dan Wesson Forum | The Legend Lives On… a wealth of information to be had there.

    Nice comparison... Now stick the Tammer Grip that first came out on the LCR and the stock grip that is offered on the plain jane Smiths, then compare the two. I think you'll find the overall length is quite a bit more than the LCR sporting the CT laser grip... if you purchased your LCR with the CT already installed, then you won't find a huge difference in the length, but regardless there is a height and length difference and in the front pocket, it does make a difference.

    Well, for me, CT lasers are a must - so it would be a moot point.

    Thanks for the comparison photos Doc. What it tells me is that my LCR, which I bought with the CT grips, is, for all intents and purposes, the same size as the J frame. It has a better trigger as well, so I'm more than happy with it. That being said, I can see myself buying a J frame at some time in my future, to give my LCR some company.

    Heck, as far as I can tell there are only two kinds of handgunners - those that HAVE an SP101 & those who haven't BOUGHT their SP101...yet! It's the Hum-Vee of j-frames.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    I know a person needs to use +P loads sparingly with the Taurus 85 Ultra-Lite (85UL). Can a person use +P frequently with the steel model 85?

    I would go by the manual that came with the gun. I once had a Taurus 85UL but the manual went with the gun. The 85UL manual available on taurus' web site states on page 11;

    para. 3) These Taurus Titanium revolvers are designed to withstand the regular use of +P jacketed ammunition. However, we do not recommend that you utilize +P lead bullet ammunition as the typically light crimp on the lead bullets could cause some of them to unseat from the case, moving forward in the chamber, and possibly blocking the cylinder’s rotation.

    I didn't notice any note on the steel frame models.
