Taurus 605 - Whats your thoughts? Any good or bad news on these? Any help is greatly appreciated.
The only auto I have owned from them is their beretta clone the Pt-92 and I am happy with it, I love their revolvers.leeindy said:dont care for there autos but there revolvers are spot on
havent shot one but i like the way they put the safety on theirs. my biggest peeve with the M9 is the slide mounted safetyGunny the Gun said:

*glares at leeindy*leeindy said:i can see you and me are gonna argue over guns quite a bit.
and the 1911 is a good gun. i just bought another one. but for carry ill take something a little less problematic
simple misunderstanding, I have been shooting for as long as I have been able to walk, complex guns dont scare me. Simple is a must for beginners. alot of problems with any firearm is user related (limp wrist, weak wrist, unableness to understand the idea of how to use sights :roll: I have been in your shoes so many times it is not funny.leeindy said:unless you shoot alot theres no real way of knowing exactly how thell behave.
ive been and idpa and ipsc range officer ive seen so many people who step up to shoot for there first time. there gun malfs then they turn around pointing a loaded gun at me going "what do i do"
the 1911 is a great gun if you shoot regularly and are competint, bad guns for beginners and shoot once a year types
I wish I could do that, I teach Junior rifle class in small bore olympic shooting.leeindy said:ive had to send 5 people home for that. never to return.
i only kick people out of idpa for two reasons. poor gun handling(ie pointing a gun at me)Gunny the Gun said:I wish I could do that, I teach Junior rifle class in small bore olympic shooting.leeindy said:ive had to send 5 people home for that. never to return.
I cant even count how many times I have heard " this rifle is not sighted in" I pick it up and put one through the 10 ring and hand it back to them. then spent 10 minutes to tell them that it is a sport that requires practice, it is not shooting tin cans in papys backyard
