Nice new gun. Can't ever go wrong with a good revolver. I've had bad experiences with the Taurus Semis, but haven't had any with the revolvers.

Aaahhh let the wheels keep turning.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
The squeaky wheel get the grease, but I don't think they greased you too bad.

Nice gun, and that sounds like a good deal to me. (makes me miss TX).

Nice choice, let us know how it shoots.
I have one identical to that. Cost was a bit less than that, a year more or less ago.Well I finally bit the bullet and got my first wheel gun. I have heard good and bad things about the Taurus line of revolvers, so I went with it. It is a Taurus 605 SS I got new at the gunshow down here for 360. Sounded like a good deal to me!!!
It has been no problem, whatsoever. I am careful not to dry fire without snap caps (long story. Just don't.).
HKS speedloaders didn't clear the factory grip. I ended up with an Uncle Mike's boot grip and a longer Uncle Mike's. Neither is still made. The one looks to be about the same as the Hogue Monogrip. Pachmayr gripper likewise had trouble w/ speedloaders.
I haven't had more than a couple cylinder's worth of .357 through it. A bit too much, even with the bigger grip.
Congrats on the new pistola.....

Ah, a wheelie(wub). everybody needs at least one.
Skip the speedloader and try speed strips instead, much faster for me, smaller profile and easier to stash in a pocket.
