I need a .22 DA revolver and after looking around I figured a Taurus 942 3 inch barrel would be a good choice. Not too pricey and having a good rep.

You can see them advertised for around 350.00. My wife like to shoot 22's and doesn't like my clunky Ruger SA that I have. So I thought a small DA revolver with a medium barrel length would be good except for one thing. Nobody that I have checked with has one. There are two gun stores and a pawn shop here and I called one and they said they had a Ruger LCR 22 DA so I went down and looked and it was a 22 mag and I didn't want that because I don't have any ammo for it and the ammo is expensive when you can find it. The guy said you could shoot lr in it in the same cylinder, and while that is true, it's not a good idea. I did it once with a Ruger Single Six inadvertently by loading the mag cylinder with lr ammo. It shot fine but the empties were really hard to punch out afterward. I later measured the mag ammo and the case is about 15 thousandths larger in diameter than the lr case. So it was a no go. Besides it was more than I wanted to pay at $550.00.

They did have 200 rounds of 45 acp which I bought for 120 dollars. I left an went to the other gun store and struck out there too, as he didn't have any. Zip for the pawnshop too. So I went home and gave up on it realizing that missus would have to wait. Then I remembered a feed store here that sold ammo and just for grins I called them and asked if they sold guns. They did. I asked if they had a DA 22lr revolver and they had 2, both Ruger LCRx models, one 22lr and one 22wmr with three inch barrels. They took trades also, so I got the pistol I wanted to get rid of and went down there and got it and had to pay 100 plus my trade in. The wife like it so all's well.

This is it. SA trigger pull is around 5 pounds and it's an 8 shot.

Great choice for shooting human silouette targets at 5 to 10 feet!

Here is my .22 revolver. It is a Taurus 942 M .22 mag. 8 rounds. Great shooter! Fits in my vest pocket. And its big brother, my 357 mag 605. and their really big brother, my .41s mag Tracker. All are great guns. I am a fan of Taurus. I think the Ruger LCR line is butt ugly. All of my .22LR guns are semi-autos. My little Beretta Bobcat lives in my blue jeans pocket ... if I have pants on, it is there!

If you are 100 yards away and I am shooting at you with any of these Taurus handguns, even the snubbies, you are in deep trouble.

They're all quite lovely but we Canadians own few like them because they're made for killing people and we're really not into that so much.

We would consider those kind of guns to be more attractive to bad guys who own guns.

I'm shocked!

You are right. That is exactly what they are for except for the .41 mag which is for bears on my motorcycle rides through the Rocky mountains. They will not kill anyone who is not trying to do me bodily harm or kill me ... or trying to do the same to others in a public place near me. I carry concealed 24/7 wherever I go. Anyone within 50 yards of me is safe.

The back woods Florida crackers I grew up around hunted deer with .22. So its a good round for any type of shooting.

Yep, 8 rounds of .22 mag will ruin any bad guy's day and most likely end it because the low recoil and accuracy will most likely see all 8 in his head.

My wife has the Ruger LCRx 3" in both .22lr and .22WMR. They're nice revolvers.

Florida deer are not all that large except in north Florida.
