    For me, I don't like their products because they just copy the designs of other major brand name manufacturers.

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing about Glocks. They are 'available' pretty much 24/7. There has to be a reason so many are up for grabs.....

    Seems to me that more people are trying to get rid of a Glock than are looking for one.

    heres some

    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

    4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

    5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

    6. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm.
    'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?'
    'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle or a shotgun.'

    7. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

    How fast the thread goes off topic....

    I for one don't mind Taurus's designs. Like the PT92. They took the original Beretta design and made it better (in my opinion).

    I think the main thing that hurts Taurus is the perception that they are poor quality, or lower quality than other mfg.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    never had a problem with any Taurus's have several models and no issues.

    By the way, 911 is only so the police have a recording of your death for when they actually get there.....

    Are we talking about jokes here, or the quality of a Taurus? I got a little of each!

    Well, this isn't a joke, but I thought it was funny. It's supposed to be true, but it came from the internet, so who knows?

    The Best Comeback
    Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day
    and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning
    guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you got to
    love this!!!!

    This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of
    National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US
    Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop
    visiting his military installation.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to
    teach these young boys when they visit your base?

    GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery,
    and shooting.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

    GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the
    rifle range.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous
    activity to be teaching children?

    GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle
    discipline before they even touch a firearm.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

    GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're
    not one, are you?

    The radio went silent and the interview ended. :bluelaugh:

    And I then I have an opinion about Taurus revolvers.

    A friend of mine bought a 6" Blued .357 Mag Taurus revolver in the mid 80's. I believe he paid a whopping $170 for it. Good looking gun. The trigger pull was better than my S&W Model 65 and it was fitted together as well, if not better, too. He shot it a lot, even with some overly hot handloads. (he didn't shoot THOSE alot!) A few years later he bought a Model 85 .38 snubbie. Same scenario. I had a Model 60 Smith. I think his Taurus was a better gun, especially for the money. He still has both of them, but I don't own either Smith that I had then.

    If you apply the first joke to the resale value of a Taurus revolver though, you're probably right!
    :p

    Now have a collection OF Taurus's , so does that make them better?
    I think they are of good value, and have had no failures in any.
    24/7 x (2), mod 94, pt 145, pt 1911, mod605, pt 945. Humm, they just keep shooting.

    Ya' gotta' admit, it's funny!:thumbup:

    But, my opinion of Taurus revolvers isn't. Maybe someday I'll get to form an opinion of Taurus pistols.
