Good yet cheap Revolvers?

I was firing a few guns at a local range with my friend. Tried out his new ak-47 and tommy. But I also tried his .357mag 6 shooter and i fell in love. I've never been a big fan of revolvers, but honestly, I'd never fired one before. Now I'm looking to pick one up for myself.
His is a Comanche and AFTER TAX was $230! BRAND NEW! I can always go that route, but I don't want to get the exact same gun.
I'm looking for a silver revolver, .357mag, with no less than a 5.5" barrel. I'm looking for cheap and if I can't find a good cheap one, I'll find a used one.
I'm lovin the look of the Taurus Tracker 6.5" and the vents. But I'd have to find a cheap used one.
I'm really considering just grabbin a Comanche because at that price....damn.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Rob

Turaus All the way.I've got one of there auto's . I've had it almost 5 years, and have went through approx. 10,000 rounds without a single malfunction related to the gun( I did get a pair of used mags at a gun show that it didnt like).There affordable, will built and an amazint value. Unfortunatly the Tracker series hasnt been out very long, so finding cheap used ones will be hard. But they have been making a few S&W coppies for years so the should be easy to find used.Get a "Gun Trader" Book at wallmart to keep from getting raped and look at alot of shops. Dont jump on the first one you see. Good luck, and keep'em in the ten ring.

I ended up winning that auction of the .357mag Taurus Tracker, satin finish, 6.5" and beautiful for $299.49. After shipping and fees, it'll come to be around $337. I feel I got a good deal.

Here's a picture of it:




*EDIT: nevermind about the picture. it says it doesnt "look to be a true gif"

Here's the link:

Might need to right-click on show picture a few times

Nice birthday gift to yourself, eh? Have fun with that, but not too much fun.

Happy birthday!
