Case in point:

Ever heard of "1911 Leg" ?

What about "Hi-Point Leg" ?

Didn't think so...

Is the Taurus problems relatively new? I know when the first arrived they were very good quality and excellent warranty. My son bought a 1911 last year and it has been great but a coworker bought one and has had 3 extractors break.

i heard about the quality issues some time ago but i did not listen lesson learned from what i have seen with friends and family its really hit or miss with the quality i struck out two of three times.

Everybody and their uncle makes a 1911, but only Glock makes a Glock. Smith&Wesson tried (Sigma) and it basically sucked too so they made the M&P instead. Just my opinion.

So I'm convinced they are good quality firearms. I have gone again and bought the 9 mm carbine but still have not shot it yet.
$120 for a handgun, damn that's cheap!!

Is that the only thing you can come up with is "Glock leg"? So you have some morons handling a gun! That doesn't effect the quality of the gun. Any common sensed person can see that the gun is safe, but the handler is not!! Why don't we talk about the stories of LEOs "cleaning" there gun and it accidentally goes off. Is it the guns fault or the handlers fault? Ummm maybe the handler!! So you might want to call "Moron leg" or "Idiot leg" would ve better. Thank you!!!
