      +1 for the S&W. Better resale value too, just incase.

      Another for the S&W. I just truly love my 686. I am sure the snubbies are just as nice. Of course I like Taurus also so the best suggestion I can give is try them both and see which one you live the most. Have fun....

      I have many S&W revolvers....and I have had two Taurus model 85's....I never had a problem with the Taurus and carried it many times....S&W probably has the edge on overall quality and a better trigger. Taurus has improved a lot over the years and they should be considered when buying....I just have to give the edge to S&W in the long run.

      Taurus is a quality weapon. I own S&W but there is nothing wrong with a Taurus.

      I had a lightweight Taurus 38s. I traded up to a S&W 442. The 442 is a much better gun.

      Always buy quality - if your buying price it's generally is a big mistake.

      I'd buy used quality before new cheap.

      I'm strongly another vote for S&W - one of the best brands made.

      imho

      I'd go with the Smith, if for no other reason for the CS. I've sampled both, and believe me, there no comparison.

      Smith Airweight! Mine is a 642 but I'm sure the other models are quite good also.

      I like my Taurus 605. It has a very nice trigger and is as accurate as friends S&W snubbies.

      S&w 442

      Just bought the 442 last month for my CCW and own a S&W 586 .357 in the S&W. It took about 2 boxes of 38s thru the snubbie before I felt comfortable with it. Sights are right on for me w/a 6 oclock pic on the bull at 10 yds. At 50' (dist I shoot my 22s (Browning and Ruger Super Single Six and 357), I hold at the nose area and hit nicely in the chest section.

      Overall, a nice weapon and I trust it as well as any other S&W.

      I do plan on buying a 9mm probably the Taurus you have as I think it would be a better pocket weapon due to the slimness and size. At times, an inside pants carry isn't a good idea.

      If there is a .38 cal out there in a semi and same size please tell me as I much prefer a 38+ to a 9mm.

      Ole Ed
