This is one of the best contradictions I've read in a long time.A GI .45 was/is junk when I was in the Navy. Rattles/ed like a rattle snakes tail. But, it does/did what it is designed to do when it was/is required to do it. The term junk, in my view, is usually associated with a gizzmo not doing what it is supposed to do when required to do it.
Good luck with the new pistol.
WalkingWolf wins the prize. He deciphered my response.Does the gun work for you? If it does, and you like it our opinions do not matter. I have two Brazil revolvers one a Rossi, and one Taurus and both look, and function flawlessly. The Taurus 82 was/is a tack driver out of the box, shooting two inch or less groups at ten yards off hand out of the box with cast bullets. Usually it takes most guns a good 200 rounds with jacketed ammo to break in, like my S&W 625 PC which cost three times more than the Taurus.
WW did not deciphered your reply [insult] to amtilton 17.This is one of the best contradictions I've read in a long time.
Oh, OK. I think anything Taurus is junk and I think you got ripped off.
I'm sure that makes you feel good throwing your money away.
Firearms Iinstuctor, you are opening yourself up to criticism by OC for ME.Taurus handguns are a crap shoot if you get one that works you are fine.
But a lot of them have problems.
I own two both revolvers one was back to the factory one was not.
At a gun shop I picked up a brand new one cocked it to check the single action trigger pull the action lock up tighter then a drum couldn't de-cock it could not do anything.
If I hadn't pick them up really cheap on the free market I wouldn't own either.
WW, you are opening yourself up to criticism for promoting logic.Seems this always happens when the word Taurus is said. Some people have horrible luck, others like me and probably most people have good luck. Same thing happens when the words Hi Point are brought up. If they don't work for (generic) you then don't buy them. Pretty simple concept, just like open carry I tell the anti OC people the same thing. Don't like OC, don't do it, but stay the hell out of my business. Now admittedly the OP brought his business to an open forum, but I am sure he will learn.
