Taurus 590 Revolver in 5mm Rimfire

What could have been?

The Taurus 590 revolver is an example of what could have been. Leading up to the 2008 SHOT Show, Taurus had a 5mm handgun under development. It seemed like a sure thing…but then…nothing.

I’d like to examine the nearly-released Taurus 5mm Magnum revolver and the current state of the 5mm RFM cartridge.
