A "Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd." gun.

I like your style beans.
Taurus has made some shitty guns, but generally speaking they’re decent bargains. Generally. My buddy’s Taurus .357 Mag likes to work itself loose and not cycle the cylinder like it should. But the PT 1911 I had was flawless, and the cheapest 1911 in the store.

I was at my LGS yesterday, and fondled one of these S&W 442..




I liked it. It's a bit pricey, but I think I may have been bit by the bug.

Those are great to carry but horrible to shoot because they are so light. Of course, you won't care if you're plugging some ojete trying to rob you. What was the price?

$445. Comes to about $530, out the door.

I keep hearing that they are a pain to shoot because of the reasons you stated. This even from the LGS sales dude. I may have to rethink this thing.

They feel like smacking your hand with a hammer. I wish i were bullshitting, especially with the 158gr loads they really do.

For that kinda scratch, you're close to Model 36 territory - which is the S&W snub I'd prefer - steel frame and classic looks makes the snub a little better. I sold my 642 because it did suck so bad to shoot. It was a dream to carry though. You could carry it in basketball shorts.

Also, you should be able to find the 442/642 for significantly cheaper online. Ex. - $329.00 -- https://gun.deals/product/smith-wess...er-5-round-329

Assuming a $50 transfer fee, plus whatever your local fees are, you're still gonna come in $100 cheaper than locally. YMMV. PM me if you wanna discuss further - I suspect you might be nearby I can point you in the right direction.

Trollo Update:

The favela gun looks as janky as the almeja of the most used up favela puta, but the trigger is good and it goes bang whenever I pull the trigger. Also, i'm only down $160 for the bitch.

I dig it. Taurus is okay in my libro.

You got it. Richard Kuklinskie, "The Ice Man", the most prolific paid assassin for the mafia always said when he was in close quarters in a vehicle he always use a double action 38 wheel gun cuz he didn't want to have no malfunctions in a car when he was putting somebody on ice.

Good to be back. It looks like the banhammer was falling like fresh snow while I was gone! Did you get in on the Model 85 $159.99 PSA sale too?

Excellent. The thing REALLY smooths out after a little dry firing. I loaded some spent casings in and spent 15 mins dry firing and using the plunger and it's markedly better than it came to me. Also, a few minutes with a rat tail file really helped with the hammer digging into my side for cc.

Otherwise, no complaints other than the wait for the rebate.

You're gonna love shooting the 85. Very accurate for a snub, imo.

Right? Im convinced that this is better than anything in its price range. If QC were more consistent, this would be comparable to a Ruger. This gun is a great way to protect the home even on a really modest budget.

The QC is fine. Most of the bad mouthing is based on hearsay from haters who have no experience or on past years old QA issues...
