Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Beauty, although that little baby would probably put a hurtin' on your hand.....
Yeah, looks like a Scandium model, which kick like a mule, although I love shooting mine in .22 Magnum.
I carry a Taurus 605 Poly .357 magnum sometimes especially if I'm gonna be in "close quarters" with lots of people. It does have a kick, but if you're expecting it it's a fine weapon.
