Got some data on that, I have seen lots of Taurus on the range without any problems. The newer ones are great weapons. By the way I am on the range a lot with other firearms instructors.
no none of the above. Just a plain old local agency Firearms/ERT instructor who has lived with a firearm on his hip or should since 1963 and has been to a few of those old yearly instructor siminars.Where are you an instructor?
^ I don't mean to Insult your experence (Which is no doubt considerable)
I've known some OUTSTANDING and squared away cops.
I've ALSO known some that were anything but!
And 'Yearly siminars' is about what I'm talking about (On a level with CCW)
MOST cops rarely train with their firearms, and lets be honest... 95.7% if the time they are using a different tool/aspect of the job.
How many 1,000 round + training classes have those Taursues gone through?
I've talked to several guys at the local range, they recommended the Taurus 1911 over several others. They said it had the least return rate due to mechanical issues.Friends don't let friends carry Tauruses.
GO check with shooting instructors (And I don't mean CCW instructors... I mena the classes with 1,000 rounds +)
...Ask them how many Tauruses make it throught...
+1 on that. I love guns that can use multiple types of ammo. That's one reason I like my little Nagant revlver so much....Iv'e always wanted one. I like all guns that can take 2 different kinds of ammo, like .357/.38 . My grandpa has a 20 guage/ 22 magnum shotgun over under style, its a good survival gun too.
My thoughts are that it's a great toy. I'd love to have one in my safe. It's somewhat fun to shoot as is any decent revolver. I just don't understand it niche. Recoil with .410 shells is similar to a .45LC, .44spl or .45ACP... #6 shot at 10 yds gave a pattern of about 18 inches.I'm thinking about hetting a Taurus Judge. Any thoughts on this gun?
For its ammo versatility? Or the fact that there are so few DA .45 Colt revolvers out there?I think it's a fine gun regarding its fit and finish, its reliability and all, but I have not been able to get my brain around why someone would choose it as a self-defense weapon as either a .45LC or a .410 shotgun are more functional in that role...
Revolvers are GUNS.no no no no revovers arent COOL. autos are COOL. if you wanna be COOL, you gotta have an auto.
im glad there is some new blood on here that likes revolvers. 6 months ago there was nothing but revolver bashing.
