I don't have an extra holster. You stick this in your pocket. Keep it out of sight. If you're gonna be here today, you're gonna have a gun.
Mike Ehrmantraut to Jesse Pinkman[src]

The Taurus Model 85 is a snub nose 5 shot revolver chambered for .38 Special. It came in full hammer Blued, but also was available in Stainless Steel. The bobbed hammer, humped backed "concealed carry" version is the Taurus Model 851 which owes its design lineage to the Smith & Wesson Model 38/49 Bodyguard series of revolvers. Both the Model 85 and the 851 come in different style variations as well as finishes. Much like their distant Smith and Wesson cousins, Model 85's can come equipped with exposed, 'bobbed', or shrouded hammers. There are numerous cosmetic options, including gold-plated hardware and grips of wood or pearl. The Model 85 is available with either 2" or 3" barrels, is capable of firing +P rated .38 Special rounds, and utilizes a transfer bar safety.
