    New Wheel Gun

    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!!!

    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.

    The squeaky wheel get the grease, but I don't think they greased you too bad.

    I have one identical to that. Cost was a bit less than that, a year more or less ago.

    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.

    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.
