Hey all, Bit of a random question: doing some research on a suitable gun for my father. Time's starting to really take its toll on him and we're needing to rethink his self/home defense abilities. Looking hard at a Ruger SP-101 (if I can get him to let me pitch in) or a Taurus in .327 Federal Magnum. Even my 9mm has too much recoil for him, but he shoots his father's war bringback FN Model 19-Something in .32 Auto just fine. It's just that his hands are getting pretty bad so racking the slide and loading mags is tough. So, a revolver in .327 that he and my mother could "regularly" load with .32 S&W Long and then either the H&R Magnums or the newer Magnums for self-defense uses seems like it would be the best idea right now. I know that Taurus only made a short run of the .327s and I can't quite nail down whether Ruger is making them new, but the budget is tight for my parents and we'll be looking used. I figure $425ish for a used Ruger might work, but what about a Taurus? I'm trying my best to steer him away from the Tauruses, but money's tight.
