The Taurus 856 is a solid 38 special revolver. Comfortable to shoot 6 shot revolver. Accurate and feels good in your hand. Good value. I really like this snub nose revolver.

Given if you buy this new its going to have a stiff trigger and hammer and will need many rounds through it. However, I was impressed with how great and easy it rotated. Definitely need to change the grip, the base one is extremely uncomfortable and if youre a new shooter, you will definitely hurt yourself.
