The very first handgun I bought, back in 1987, was a Taurus Model 85 in .38 Special. I had it for six years, then due to money issues, had to part with it. Well, fast forward to today, and I was able to find another one, exactly like the first one I had, all those years ago. It is in excellent shape, and locks up tight. I won't be able to shoot it until this coming weekend, and will post up a report.

Very happy I was able to replace the one that got away!

Very nice. Congrats. I think the early to mid 1990’s Taurus 85s were some of the best handguns Taurus ever made. I bought a Concealed Hammer version earlier this year which looked like it was practically unfired. I’d like to find another hammered version in that kind of condition, just because.

Any thoughts on newer Taurus 856? I bought a lightly used 3" matte stainless with a blued/black cylinder, 6 shot .38 Spcl. for $250. Grip was a terribly harsh feeling VZ G10 but relaced it with a Pachmayr G10 & it fit great.
Would it sell ok?
I could keep it but it's not as nice as a S & W Model 60 3" I sold last year. Trust is a strong factor in a revolver.
