Been a long time since my last visit. Log on problem. Anyway, I picked up this Taurus mod. 431 a few weeks ago. It’s a 5 shot 44 special with a 3in barrel. Sure like the gun, wish DW had made a similar gun. Here is a pic of the Taurus and a pic of it and my 15-2 with the 2 1/2 in barrel. They are so similar in size. Very handy for a belt rig.

Those are nice pistols. That reminds me that I dont have a short barrel for my .44 mags. I have 6&8″  barrels. I would like to have a 2.5″ or 4″ barrel too.

Nice looking revolvers, and both very suitable for concealed carry/self protection. A proper load in either caliber will be very effective, but I’m leaning toward the .44 Special. Even though you’ll only have 5 shots, you won’t need more than one!

Nice wheel guns! I have a 2.5″ on my model 17….nice carry size.

3″ is a terrific barrel length. I own a S&W 629 with a 3″ barrel. Love it. I keep a 2.5″ barrel and combat grips on one of my Dans all of he time.
