Reader Comments of the Week

“I have owned M&P in different versions since they first came on the market. From their first compact to the competition size and Shield in first and second generation. I personally find them personally to be a great Firearms in fit and feel as well as point ability compared to other I have carried over the years.”

– Walter, in response to S&W M&P: Which Model Is Right for You?

“I have a couple of Llama’s, they are reliable and fairly accurate. I will take any that the rest of you don’t want. Let me know. I have firearms in many different calibers; why, I can use most any ammo I find. Hope “Dire Straights” never happen and all this is just an interesting hobby.”

– rainmaker, in response to Firearms for Dire Straits

“Thank you for proper use of the apostrophe in “1911s”! Apostrophes are more common than 9 mm semi-autos and are too often abused. Nice article and great photos.”

  1. I have owned several different Taurus firearms through the years. As early as the late 70s and never have I been disappointed. Most are priced fairly and perform as they should. I’ve owned from the pt 380 to 44mag with 10″barrell . My recent purchase is by far my favorite. The 357 8round barrel. Not a conceal carry but what a firearm it is. Has to be the finest revolver I’ve ever shot. With very little recoil, less than my 380!! Smooth,accurate, and just down right fun to shoot.
    I’d like to see the company produce a 38 with 6 round capacity and be in the price range of the EEA Rock Island model.
    YES I am a happy Taurus owner.
