Ah, another incarnation of the Medusa! My limited knowledge on the subject is through a friend of a friend, so keep your salt shaker handy. While this idea does work with all the rounds, it fires none of them with any particular accuracy. And in some calibers the cartridges are somewhat shortened in reloadability lifespan, if you will.

I would think it would be ok... not a whole lot of difference between .355 and .357 bullets, right?



Don't know much about revolvers though.

As previously mentioned, a re-take on the Medusa and more lately, Gary Reeder's Skorpion. The concept is one gun that fires multiple calibers...I guess pretty handy in the event of ammo scarcity. Buy one and put it in your bug-out kit for TEOTWAWKI scenario.

"The End Of The World As We Know It". An acronym for the internet survivalist crowd.

I think that this incarnation of the Medusa will work just fine. I owned a Medusa and would have to remember to not mix different calibers in the cylinder so as to ensure accuracy. The .380 could even be fired.



I'm looking forward to picking up this Taurus as soon as they are available.

Please, if you get one, give us a range report. Taurus may have something here after all!

I, for one, kinda like the idea of this gun's versatility. I've had a long-time desire to shoot/own a J-frame sized 9mm revolver, but my quest has gone unsatisfied, so far. I do wish, however, that this Taurus was offered in a light weight titanium and/or aluminum alloy. I also would like a 3" barrel option.
