taurus 627 tracker

hi guys
was looking at the taurus model 627 tracker in 357 with 4inch barrel.
was wondering if the 4inch barrel would be adaquate for hunting deer? your thoughts on this. it was being sold for a rather nice price.

IMO if you like the gun get it, a 4" will shoot just as accurate as a 6" at normal pistol range. Spend some time at the range and shoot 357 not 38 there is a difference where they shoot.

Re: taurus 627 tracker

My dad had one.

It was a fine gun, nothing wrong with it. Nice and light and pretty accurate.

The downsides are that because its so light its pretty jumpy and the trigger guard would wack my middle nuckle. Also, being a 357 and ported it would blow your ears out.

If you like it buy it. It will kill a deer.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

Re: taurus 627 tracker

thanks guys for the info, am still debating on it. it would be a great carry weapon on deer, when going into places where you dont want to lug a rifle.

Re: taurus 627 tracker

I would suggest a 6" model if that is you real purpose...To carry while hunting. I have a 6" GP100 and am glad I got the longer barrel. The sight radius is longer, and you get more velocity.

The extra 2" of barrel doesn't add much weight. I look at a 4" 357 as an actual hunting gun for the more experianced. Or people that can easily choose to only shoot as far as truthfully know they can accurately. That goes for anygun, but I think you get the point.

I looked into the Tracker when I got my GP100. It was a nice gun, but I felt the Ruger was muck more rugged. Not sure if I would want to feed the Tracker a steady diet of full power loads. It was the same cost, and they are made in the USA. The Taurus is not. I do carry a Taurus 38 snubby while fishing, hining, camping etc. There isn't any comparing the two brans with workmanship. The Ruger is FAR better.

The S&W 686 is along the same lines, but MUCH better quality. They seem to made like a swiss watch, but I couldn't justing the third more in cost for my uses. Plus I just didn't have it at the time.
