While perusing The Firearm Blog, Steve points to a new Ultra Light revolver from Taurus, the 445, in .44 S&W Special. I’m not sure why but I’ve always wanted a medium-framed 5-shot revolver in .44 Special.
Yeah, it’s a Taurus so quality may be speculative (the internet is full of both praise and distain for Taurus firearms, thus I say “may be…”). However, let’s get on to the strange.
After reading Steve’s post I jumped over to taurususa.com and looked through the 2011 New Product Catalog. After getting past the UGLY pistols on the first few pages, I stopped on page 6 – WHAT?! Is that really a small-framed, 5-shot revolver chambered in .380 auto? Yes, yes it is. Why? I don’t know. It’s Taurus.
