Always good to learn something.
I've seen different firearms listed as TALO.
For some reason,I always thought it was a video game..and people painted/customized a gun to look like something in the game..or maybe in a movie..or sumptin.
Googled it,company that takes factory guns,and just makes them differnt looking,but nothing with the function.
Have no clue if it increases resale,some of them look nice...I love 'Merica

Yes, TALO is a gun distributor. They often order specific gun variants that the factories don’t currently produce by the hundreds or thousands. Sometimes a different color, different set of sights, various accessories added or taken away. Some are fairly unique. Some might say they’re cool and others would not be impressed.
I do think it’s a neat opportunity for them to “jazz up” or spice up existing firearms just a little.
If you’re a yankee, you may not like TALO as it is an acronym for Texas Arkansas Louisiana Oklahoma.

We're about 100 years away from "Yankees" not liking a state just because they can't drive in the snow and don't know how to use antifreeze.
Though I must admit...I HATED sweating during Christmas in Texas, 75 degrees and 90% humidity on December 24th is STUPID! ;)

Hate to say it, but I think there's more latent Distrust going the other way around, and that's coming from someone who grew up in the midwest who's lived both in Yankeeland proper and Down in the Carolina's where I currently reside. When it comes right down to it though it's really all the same with the biggest general difference being whether your told Nicely to "Eat ****" or more directly without the sugar sprinkled on top and a "Bless Your Heart" afterwards!

Didn't know that about TALO. Only exposure I have is seeing adds for NAA revolvers with the rainbow finish (titanium?). Real cute
