Taurus 851 Protector .38 Spl+P 2" Blue
[2851121]
$341.00
by Paul C Date Added: Saturday 24 September, 2011
So I've had my 851 for about 7 months now and while I don't get nearly enough practice with it, it is indeed a fantastic handgun. It's very compact and easily concealable. I actually bought this handgun along with the CIA model so i could decide which to keep and which to sell (thinking I'd only keep one).

Somewhere along the way, I decided I like them both so much that I'm not selling either one. The one really nice thing about this revolver is that even though its compact and has a very short barrel, the kick using the 110 & 135 Grain ammo isn't all that bad because the gun is also all metal. The full power 158Grain +P ammo is a palm stinger though. I actually tried shooting the hottest load i could find through this gun and while the gun performed flawlessly, my palm and wrist did not. I was only able to do 1 cylinder of full power ammo.

All in all, I'd give this gun a 9 out of 10. Great fit and finish and it does exactly what I bought it for.

Bud's service earns and A as well since they were able to get both my guns to me in jut 3 days. That made my weekend as they arrived just before I was planning on taking a CCW Class.

Thanks Taurus for a great product, and Thanks Buds for great service.
