I am ex US Air Force Security Police. Purchased my first Taurus 85 steel, at a gun show in Casa Grande,AZ used but very little wear. Great snubby, has never failed to fire after hundreds of rounds. Also purchased Taurus 85 ultra lite,much more kick but still great, very reliable! Both very fine,reliable revolvers to keep you safe if the need should ever arise. Also have the North American Arms "Pug" 22 magnum that is much more than many give credit! When I fire it on the range most want to check it out! At under 7 oz why would you leave home without it?
