I went to my normal ma & pa gun shop (that I get all of my firearms from) today to see what he could get a Russian SKS for. Well the price was not bad at all I think so I was looking at getting another gun possibly. I have my eye set on either a Auto Ordnance 1911PKZ or a Taurus 608 .357 mag 6 inch stainless ported. Since I all ready have a .45 (G21) I am leaning towards the Taurus 608. Now the research I have done looks like they are around the $500 mark and what is selling me on them is their life time warranty. Its kinda of hard to pass up a 8 shoot .357 mag revolver. So my questions are, are Taurus revolvers a good buy? Would there be any major different between a 6" barrel compared to a 8" barrel on a revolver? Anyone here own a Taurus 608 and what are your views on it? Thanks for your time! P.S: by the way if I do get the Taurus 608, it will be my very first revolver.
