Got a new blacked out Taurus Slim 9, and although I am loathe to actually recommend a Taurus, it's the shit. I actually have a couple Taurus revolvers, including a compact .38 special (5 rounds) and the larger .357 magnum Tracker. I've found them to be very solid, reliable firearms at a very good price point. Mind you, I've never owned one of their pistols, but was tempted to pick up a stainless 9 mm last year. Bought a Beretta PX4 subcompact instead.
