Default Bad Day ends Well

Took the new little plinker (Taurus 94 2" 22lr) to the range to see what it we ould do and to hopefully have a little fun. Wrong. In the last 9 months I had purchased two previous Tauri - a 38sp UL and a 4" 22lr. The 38sp was average but improved with a little smith work on it. The 4" 22 is a dream - smooth as silk and fun to shoot. The new 2" 22lr performed about as bad as bad can be. Hard hammer to cock, refuses to eject the shells sometimes, and worst of all, the cylinder locks and you cannot pull the hammer back. Spent the rest of the time shooting the MK9 and EMP. The Good News is that will strolling and drooling after shooting I saw a Ruger SP101 2" stainless 357 with spurless hammer. Trigger pull just silky. Went to pick up the wife from her bridge group, told her about it (would be a good gun for her finger strength), she said lets go get it. It now has a new home. Guess I will just have to deal with Taurus next week and when things get difficult, go fondle the Ruger.


"Honey, can I buy another gun?" "Why another gun?" "I just figured out that I am two guns short of never enough!"

You'll be able to hand that SP101 down to your great grandchildren.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Had me laughing at : " when things get difficult, go fondle the Ruger."

I'll change that to "When things get difficult, I go fondle my GLOCK".

I like Taurus (I got a Raging Bull .44Mag), but I gotta say that they all miss the last touch of quality. Enjoy your Ruger,...

Taurus again??

Where are the fan boys with a fix for Hollander?


Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You'll enjoy the SP101. Get you some snap caps and practice your trigger pull and speed loading around the house. It'll make your range sessions more valuable.

I dropped my SP101 on my floor a few weeks ago and man you should see the floor!
