Default Huh? Dillinger with a Taurus?

Yep. It's true. I have a serious tinfoil hat wearing "acquaintance" who NEEDS a true long gun. He had a sweet Remy 870 that I personally set up for him. Calls me about 3 weeks ago and he wants to just up and trade it AND a Taurus PT 1911 to some ass clown for a 10 plus year old AR because it's "pre-ban".

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?

So I stall the sale/trade with what I like to call "facts" and he comes around to the "a new AR" being more to his liking.

Except my boy is about as handy as a lawyer in a SHTF situation.

"Build me an AR, I'll buy the parts and you can have the 1911 because I don't like it anyways and it doesn't hold as many rounds as my Glock" is basically the conversation.

Now. I ask you, can I allow a 1911 to remain in these tinfoil clad hands??

That's me. JD. The AR whore... LOL

Pictures later and an individual, personal range report of a full sized used Taurus PT-1911.

With your coming out, I feel the need that i should too

Yes, I have a Taurus 1911 (in .38Super)

(but mine is still in the packing grease)

Looking forward to your range report. Congrats.

Hey, I'm no Taurus fan by any means but.....I had a Taurus PT1911AR that shot as good as my Wilson CQB, that's no lie. It was not a tight gun(slide to rails) but the barrel lock up was spot on. The finish was crap, but the dang thing would shoot. The guy that bought it from me says it's his favorite pistol of all time.

JD: "Hi, my name is JD, and I am a Taurus owner."

Russ: "My name is Russ, and I am a Taurus owner."

Mine isn't a 1911, but it's a Taurus nonetheless.

The only issues it has had are when you shoot some real hot .454 loads, the cylinder tends to get jammed up, and occasionally the ejector rod will back out (un-thread) and lock the cylinder into the frame.

I'll consider owning a Taurus if it's made from steel, and nothing but steel. Throw any tupperware or lightweight alloy into the equation and the answer is no.

JD, let me fix that "feel-good" moment you're having:
