i had one full titanium hammer less it has a little bite to it but not bad , takes a bit to get uses to the light weight if yours is the titanium one
i do miss it but thell be another one day,,,,,, 16oz loaded i think it was, had a shadow holster and you would forget you had it on. there was a guy had a holster on another form for $30 it was a shadow.

it worked for my hammer-less but the strap didn't really do anything as in holding the gun in

Jay, got it. Is under $300 a good deal on them here? I saw a NIB one last week for $240 at a big box store.

mine listed for $666.00

they sold for $350

any of them under $300 i think is a good deal, never had any issues out of mine and it was a +p

not sure of the one op stated thee is a few models for the 850 one only has a titanium cylinder mine was full titanium hammerless, when titanium was sky high. might be cheaper now.

if the box store was out of town you have $240+ship+ffl fees = too much

No, it's local but I'm sure it's not at all Titanium. It's probably the cheapest one of the line.

Thanks Chevelle and Turtle, the gun is $259 at mikes during the sale, seemed hard to go wrong with it, mine is stainless not titanium.... seems to feel good and will shoot it to see. I know there are mixed reports on mikes but they are good to me and its local business also.. thanks guys...

i liked mine enough to get another when the time comes. no matter what the Taurus bashers say, you need to look at there 2011 line up, seen pic but no guns yet but they have some cool looking stuff on the table

I am a die hard S&W revolver fan and I still like the Taurus 85 model revolvers. There are none of the Taurus revolvers that I would turn up my nose to. A pretty dang good quality gun for a very reasonable price. At that price, I may go pay them a visit and add another carry gun to my collection.
