The Taurus Tracker family includes a full range of calibers and sizes to perfectly suit any hunting adventure. Chambered in .44 Magnum, these rugged, durable revolvers also make a practical choice for backpacks and tackle boxes, especially where there are bears and other predators around. Extremely comfortable to fire and easy to control - the Tracker Series continues to grow in popularity thanks to its high level of accuracy, rock-solid performance and near-indestructible construction.
It's a very smooth and easy pistol to shoot and very accurate out to 70 yards with a red dot sight.
Can't beat the price. Taurus makes great revolvers, however, the finish wears somewhat fast and should be oiled regularly. The rear sight is adjustable and mine had to be adjusted quite a bit to get it accurate. Recoil is not too bad if you don't fight it. Owb holster wears comfortably when hiking or even reshingling a house. Conceals surprisingly well owb.
I've previously owned a Taurus Ti titanium .44. Cool gun, but too light. Recoil hurts a lot and a Ruger Redhawk Alaskan. Solid as a tank, very heavy, not easy to aim accurately. I wanted an inexpensive .44 to bridge the gap between the two. This revolver is not too heavy, not too light, and has a nice, even matte black finish. It is very accurate. The trigger is very good - single action is great. It's easy to shoot accurately single action. Sights are very good. With .44 magnum cartridges, the recoil is stout, but controllable and not painful, but it will hit your middle finger on the trigger guard if you don't have a good tight grip. With .44 Special cartridges, it's a dream to shoot - I could do it all day. Seems to have less recoil than my .45s, shooting bullets nearly the same weight & same velocity. It may not be as durable as a Ruger, but its 100s of dollars less, and I'll be shooting mostly .44 Special and reduced-load .44 magnum, so it should be fine. I'm really pleased with this gun. I've seen reviews that talk about how loud this gun is because of the porting. If you're wearing hearing protection, you wont be bothered. I shot .44 magnum loads at a range where you shoot from little booths with sheets of plywood on both sides of you from floor to ceiling, total about 4 feet wide, and with good earmuffs, and it didn't bother me at all. Also, Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore had a price about $50 cheaper than the next lowest price! Wow. And I looked around a lot. This is a great deal on a good revolver.
