ONE UP REVOLVER

THE NEW TAURUS UL 856 MARKS THE RETURN OF THE COMPANY’S SIX-SHOT REVOLVER, NOW WITH A LIGHTWEIGHT FRAME

The six-shot Taurus UL 856 (upper left) compares favorably in size to a five-shot S&W 442 and S&W Shield.

While some handguns are trendy or perhaps even flashy, the snub-nose .38 Special revolver has been providing good protection for more than 70 years.

Despite its age, new models of this old reliable weapon are continually being introduced. One of these is the new Taurus Ultralight 856 (UL 856), a lightweight version of the company’s old 856 steel wheelgun. And unlike many handguns this size, this one has a six-shot cylinder.

HANDY SNUBBIES

While I have carried a steel-frame .45 for many years, I have also relied on the snub .38 five-shooter of J-frame size as a backup and occasionally as a primary arm.

When making a run to the grocery store at the last minute or working in the yard, a light, handy revolver seems a good fit. I do not rely upon any caliber below .38 Special, and the cartridge has a decent track record with high performance ammunition.
