Re: .22LR pistols for pack in side arm opinions?

Saw the same problem on American Guns tonight. The timing was off on the cylinder and they had to file some of the guts down a little so the Preachers custom built shoot'em up 6 shooter would speed fire ok.
Hope the factory did yours right.

    I pack a S&W 617 with a 4" barrel. A little bulky, but deadly on small game out to 50 yards or more. Smooth double action, low recoil, and reliable functioning can deliver all ten shots into a pie plate at 15 yards in under 4 seconds.

    I've had terrible luck with Taurus though mine have been full size autos, my local distributor also has had bad experience with a number of the judges. As far as accuracy goes the mkIII gets my nod after doing some bullseye with a few of them. I carried my grandfathers early model bearcat for a number of years but retired it because of no adjustable sights and wanting to keep it nice. I now carry a super blackhawk with me in the woods.
