Some of the best double-action revolvers being made today come from Taurus. While this was not always the case, the company’s current handguns are the equal of any others I’ve evaluated recently. Taurus’ small-frame revolvers make up its largest line for the concealed-carry market. On the Taurus website, I counted no less than 16 models and variations of small-frame, five-shot revolvers in centerfire calibers like .357 Mag, .38 Special +P, 9mm Luger and .380 ACP.  Only Smith & Wesson has more versions of its J-Frame snubbies; I counted 32 on the S&W website.  Taurus also has another snub-nose in .45 Colt/.410 called the Judge, and it comes in a number of variations, too—eight of them—with barrel lengths between 2.5 and 3 inches. Scroll through the gallery above for a look at nine snub-nose revolvers from Taurus.
