    I just join the club, and was looking over the forum and didn't find anything on the 17hmr cal. The pistol that I've got has a 12" barrel and a 3x12x scope on it. Just looking around.

    I really like that round in my rifle. The idea of a pistol in 17hmr sounds decent. Darn it, now I have a new "I Want."

    I'd love to see a good picture - that's a round that I'm interested in. It's unfortunate that it's a Taurus; we don't sell a Taurus if we can avoid it. They're decent guns, though far from quality weapons, but the support and parts availability are extremely poor. If you get one that works, it will probably work for a long time. If it doesn't, or a good one fails, Lord help you getting customer support or replacement parts.

    Welcome to the Forum, BTW. Stick around and learn, teach, or both!

    A handgun in .17 is on my wish list for sure. Taurus and Ruger are the best options for now in .17 HMR.
    T/C makes a encore barrel and Chippewa, auschultz, I could be missing one.
    When Ruger chambers the single six in .17 WSM, AHHH of course we all want something they don't make yet.
