[4 of 5 Stars!]Bud's was prompt and easy to deal with. The gun arrived in great shape and quickly.
As for the gun--this is now one of my favorite firearms--and I have plenty. The recoil is stiff, but was "fixed" with some larger wooden grips, which I bought on eBay from Thailand. And the flimsy moon clips from Taurus are junk, but this is quickly remedied by ordering a new set of stainless rigid clips from TK Custom. These two updates to this gun have made this revolver and excellent purchase and I would recommend it to anyone.
I'm rating this 4 of 5, not because of any issues with the gun, as I love it, but because I needed to replace the grips and the moon clips to be 100% satisfied. Taurus should really update their moon clips. (I also have a Taurus M905, which is a 9mm revolver, and this model also has the horrible flimsy moon clips. A quick order from TK Custom "fixed" that gun as well, although the clips are not extremely cheap.)
Some people apparently hate moon clips, but they don't bother me at all. If you are having difficulty removing them, use a spent .45ACP shell over the top of the .40S&W round to remove them from the clip without damaging the clip. Works great. (I also use a .40S&W spent shell to remove 9mm rounds from the M405 revolver.)

[5 of 5 Stars!]The 405 is a great gun. It has a great DA trigger and a silky SA trigger. I was surprised by the accuracy. Very fun to shoot. It's a bit large for concealed carry but is nice to have as dependable back up that can handle being stored in a hot car or truck indefinitely. And did I mention the accuracy :). It does use moon clips but they offer some advantages in reload speed and also keeping keeping spent shells managed...Show More Reviews...
