So I got my wife to apply for a CCW permit. And for Christmas I bought her one of these babies to go with that CCW permit, once it comes in. A Taurus 85SS2ULCH .38 Special.

Make sure that you give it a once over and shoot her carry loads through it to verify reliability.
I had one for a while that was a joy to shoot, but would not consistently hit the primers hard enough to fire.
awesome pistol IMO. I carry one with the regular spur hammer quite often. My sister got the one without the exposed hammer and I wish I had. I really like them both.
I've fired hundreds of rounds from mine without a hicup. I often shoot mine out to 25 yds and can hit a cardboard 12 pack carton with it, freehand, every time at that distance.
BTW: If it came with a set of small grips like mine did, I'll warn you ahead of time to leave the big rubber ones on. I tried the small grips, but when firing with the skinny grips the trigger guard slams the crap out of the shooter's middle finger.
With the big rubber grips it shoots like a dream.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
congrats for you and your wife. It is always nice to add someone to the list of people who take their safety into their own hands.
Have fun at the range! Now i want one of those again. I had the Taurus 605 and it shot real nice. Try to let the wife shoot it a little. LOL
Does anyone know if there are issues with a internal hammer? Never really had one. Does it make a big difference as opposed to an external one?
