Default Taurus Lovers

Just curious if there are any Taurus lovers out here. I use a Taurus .38 special Ultralite for my ccw and a Raging Bull in .44 Mag

The only one I own (a 24/7 Pro) has been back at the Taurus shop for 4 of the 5 weeks I've owned it with a trigger problem. Not a fan right now...

I'd take a Judge if someone wanted to give me one, but I wouldn't go out of my way to own a Taurus.

I have a Raging Hornet and a 980 and have had no problems with them. I enjoy both.

I have two Model 85's now, an Ultralite and an older stainless version. Have had several others including a couple of the Millenium Series and have never had a problem with any of them. I carry the UL quite a bit.

Default Warning All Taurus Lovers

My late pal Bill Powell from Texas had a habit of buying each of his girlfriends a .38 spl Taurus snubby and teaching them to shoot it. It was a practice that I mentioned that might not be a good idea, as there was so many that I am sure Taurus should have put him on the board of directors!

Naturally girlfriends tended to overlap, sometimes to an alarming degree, well one night his luck ran out, a particular hot blooded Hispanic girl called by unexpectedly to find him.........well indisposed with a current amour. She forced her way in the front door past him, and a domestic ensued. He managed to bungle her out of the front door screaming and shouting (he in underpants and socks!) she grabbed her purse! Yes, you guessed it, as she pulled the Taurus from her purse he slammed the front door. The girl fired three rounds through the door hitting him twice in the upper left arm.

Well the story had a happy ending, he didn't file charges and had full mobility back in the arm in six months, oh yes he looked her up three months after the domestic and resumed the romance......... I might not agree with Bill's political views but I will miss that colourful crazy character...........

I have a Taurus PT92 and an old .38 Spl made in 1962. I used to have a 66 in stainless, but traded it for a Glock 30. I actually regret doing that.

Don't know if I would call myself a "lover" of Taurus, but I own a couple. I have a model 617, 7 shot .357 magnum 2", that I carry when I'm in the mood to carry a revolver. My wife carries a model 85 UltraLite .38 spl. I find both of them to be reliable and as accurate as any other handgun I own. In fact, I qualify annually with the 617 for my HR-218 qualification, revolver course.

Model 617...


Model 85...

I used to have a 441 .44 special 4" barrel. I really liked that gun, but I traded it. Can anybody else relate to that? I wish they still made it. I also used to have a 605 .357 Mag. Brutal gun to shoot, and not accurate. I had a PT99 9mm and a PT945 also. Both good.
