But it's still a Taurus.

Shoot what you like.

If we don't vote this guy out this fall none of us will have guns to shoot!
Thanks Cane.

As for the SIGs. Here's the story. Got a chance to fire a Kimber Custom II and handle a Kimber Ultra, I forget the model.

Off the Custom II alone I just had to switch from SIG to Kimber. It all started off innocent enough. I walked into the LGS carrying my Nitron Commander in its custom holster. Walked over straight to 1911 corner and started browsing. Dude says let me know what I can show you. How about that ultra with the crimson trace I say. Sticker says 1250.00 I handle it and like it! The owner happens to be at the 1911 counter inventorying the new knives that came in.

I just happen to say up for a trade. Owner looks up what ya got?

I show him. Tells me he'll give me 799.00 store credit.

I offer 300 on top and deal is done.

Friend here at work has (had) a Custom II with only 200 rounds fired. He loves my SIG ultra compact. I say lets make a deal. He throws in 2 Kimpro mags and the deal is done.

You asked what happened to the SIGs Cane, lol

SIDE NOTE: WTB Kimber Grand Rator Grips for full size Custom II

I have a Kimber Ultra Tactical II and Eclipse II. Both have been flawless from day one and I've owned them for years. What the heck are people talking about? I also own two Taurus revolvers that are fantastic in .22 and .357. Can't speak to the Taurus autos though, never owned one. People just like to complain I guess.
