Very nice, good luck with it.
I have a Taurus, model 415, .41 mag in titanium, and have had no problems whatsoever. Many people, particularly on this forum, malign Taurus, but I think it's just like with any other manufacturer, you can and should get a good one and sometimes there are problems. The fit and finish and action, on mine is every bit as good as any of the Ruger revolvers, I own.
Anyway, enjoy your new Taurus.

.38 special +P for home defense.

Gave it to my son.

I wish you good luck with it, but I am one of those that will not buy Taurus.

I had 5 different Taurus in the 80's to early 90's, and had problems with 3 of them.

Sold them (Taurus) all off and I will now buy only Ruger, S&W, or Colt.

That is an answer to a question that wasn't asked. I have had problems with two of my five Ruger products (a $1000 rifle at that) my P345 was jam-o-matic and none with all four of my Taurus products, including the model 66 which is the most accurate handgun I've owned.

Very nice - enjoy!

I bought a 7 shot M66SS4 several years ago. I really wanted a GP100 but demand was high and I could not get one (lacked patience).
My LGS had the 66. He assured me it was a quality handgun and I bought it. I have been very satisfied with mine and have had no problems.

Congrats, Taurus makes good revolvers, never had a problem out of a snubby I own, never shot one of their pistols.
