    Opionions on Taurus 608 8/shot .357 Revolver

    Any opinions on this 8 shot Stainless .357 4" barrel revolver? Accuracy,
    reliability, "fun factor", etc ? A friend says I should add it to my collection as the only revolver I now own is a 317 S&W .22 and he thinks one should have at least two wheelguns!

    Well I have the M66ss4 which is the 7 shot SS 4" .357
    and its a very good gun. VERY accurate, reliable and fun to shoot. handles the hot magnum loads like a champ. (unlike the 2" I carry)
    I would get another Taurus revolver in a heartbeat!

    Thanks Kruz, you think the recoil is fairly managable for single right handed operation? Unable to use left arm for next few months so its not like I'll be shooting it anytime soon, but happy to know its by the night stand. A friend is letting me keep it till i get better, will probably buy it from him in a few months anyway!

    I have no problem with the recoil on mine, its heavy enough to absorb the recoil, but not too heavy to become fatigued with one handed shooting. I would use .38spl and .38+p to get used to it. and then try some .357 loads.
