Have had a Taurus Model 85 CIA version(concealed hammer) since 2001. Shot it infrequently but it was always a pleasure to shoot and was accurate at 10yds. I am now carrying it daily as a backup pistol. It is heavier than the alloy versions but it is still easy to carry in the pocket(with a pocket holster) or on the ankle. The finish has held up very well. I had the action smoothed by a gunsmith and I painted the front sight a bright green. It is a good gun for concealed carry and for home defense. I have used this piece as a training gun for Ladies Only defensive pistol classes. I paid less than $300 for it. It has proved to be a very good value.
