So I'm new to revolvers and am considering getting a cheap starter piece to learn the ropes. I've found a great shape, low round count Taurus Model 444 UltraLite .44 Magnum for $430 and like the looks but don't want to buy a piece of garbage. Does anyone have any opinions on Taurus Revolvers or know of a better piece for about the same price.

My older brother has a Taurus (not sure what caliber) and likes it. But when we go hunting, he always has his .357 S&W. Recently I have been looking into revolvers myself, and think I have settled on a 4" barrel S&W with full size grips. It is for the wife.

How you found us:
44 mag ultralight revolver may not be the best thing to learn on, depending on what you have previously fired. You can fire 44 special in that gun, but depending on what the cylinder is made of that may be advised against by Taurus.

Personally, you can find a nice S&W .357 revolver all day long for 430.00 or less if you are not looking for a collectors piece. Much cheaper to shoot and a bit wider selection of loads available at any gun shop.
