Any comments on the Taurus 970? I like the Smith 617, but it's a little pricey in Toledo. The Taurus feels good, but I haven't heard good or bad about it.
I have long been an advocate of the .22 rimfire cartridge. I have several centerfire auto pistols and a few rimfires as well. I have been considering buying a a new rimfire pistol and thought about getting a revolver so that I don't have to worry about the issue of shooting bulk ammo and having it not function properly in an auto configuration.
This ain't like me. I have always seemed to gravitate to going bigger, larger, louder, meaner in my choice of caliber. I even went so far as to cull out most of my .380 and 9mm guns at one time. However, I now have a few new additions of 9mm and .380 pistols back in the collection. But, now I am giving very strong thought to picking up a Taurus 970 Tracker .22LR. My thoughts are it is cheap ammo for doing some target practice and fun. More so I am thinking it would be a cheap way to become accustomed to shooting a revolver double action and keeping control of aim while pulling a stonger trigger pull. I find that I tend to pull the hammer back and then fire with my revolvers, yet I claim to not care for single action revolvers. And learning to DA a revolver in the 327mag, 357mag, and larger can get expensive real fast.
