    Taurus is one of the biggest POS made. Not sure what I am reading here.

    Is that a G2C?

    Lets be fair, there are several firearms worse than a Taurus. I would go as far as to say taurus is the best gun in the price range.

    Some agencies in Brazil banned them for use as they are so problematic. They are crap. Maybe not the worse but that doesn’t mean they are reliable.

    There are many videos on YT that refute your statement of the G2C being Unrealiable.

    Yes Taurus may have a bad rap with some of their firearms but believe me The G2C isn't one of them..

    Hands down it's the best gun they make.

    Just go thru YT and that point can be made.

    I stated Taurus overall. I wouldn’t even consider anything made by them period. That’s like saying this is the best model Yugo made. You can Google that agencies in Brazil won’t allow them to be used also.

    Will follow up after my Range Trip on Saturday to show some Accuracy Test and I'll probably be putting 350 rounds thru it for Reliability as well.

    I'll make a believer outta you yet!!!

    Need to stop jerking the trigger a bit.

    But hey... It's new.

    Ran about 275 rounds.

    Only one FTF

    And that was the fault of the 20rd Magazine.

    Not the gun.

    Ran clean with the OEM mags.

    Here's two mag dump Accuracy.

    I'm jealous of anyone with the p30, vp9, aND hk45. These aren't available in California, just like all the cool shit. HK didn't want to jump through the hoops and hurdles, plus dump money into everything Kalifornia requires for most of of their guns. I have the p2000sk in .40 and it's sweet though.

    I'm not going to say I did something stupid like buy a Weatherby Mark V chambered in 340 Weatherby Magnum. But I definitely did something stupid like buy a Weatherby Mark V chambered in 340 Weatherby Magnum.

    Cool. I wish I had a need for a 340 Weatherby. No elk or grizzlies in NW Ohio. Even without a legitimate use, I'd want one just because.

    Yeah, I pretty much bought it "just because", but in hopes it'll someday see its intended use. Here in Ontario we've got moose and elk here, but the tags are hard to get, and even if you manage to get one they're pretty much all on private land so you generally fork out big bucks to actually get access to where the elk are. At the end of the day, it's a pile of fun to shoot at the range and I reload so it isn't completely cost prohibitive.

    That being said, from a conversation I had with someone earlier today.

    Guy - "What are you going to shoot with that?"
    Me - Well, my .300 Weatherby is more than adequate for anything on the continent, but if a bison or large coastal brown bear were to stroll into my house I might feel a little under gunned.

    Surprising every two-three shots will.

    I thought it would be a single shot.

    I got the slide cleaned and lubed and have a upgraded recoil spring.

    Thinking of getting a even lighter one to see if cycle's the whole mag.

    I got a tiny gun the other day that I can just carry in my pocket in shorts and T-shirt weather. I received an email ad from grabagun.com that included the .380 S&W Bodyguard with laser marked down over $100 to just $245, so I bit. A few other places dropped prices a day or two later, so my guess is that Smith is discontinuing the model or about to introduce a redesign and they're getting rid of existing stock. So now my options are .45 ACP Glock for heavy coat weather, 9 mm Walther for most regular clothes weather, and .380 Smith and Wesson for very hot days.

    that's about the price I paid for my Kel-Tec P3AT.

    It quickly became my EDC, just because it's so easy to take everywhere. I have it in a Desanti Nemesis (pocket holster), and it prints like a wallet or cell phone.
