    I just found this Taurus for 349 at Academy. I don't know much about Taurus Pistols. I mean I have heard good things about their revolvers.

    The Guy behind the gun case says he is selling a lot of them and that it won Guns & Ammo Gun of the year last year (Is it true?)

    Any way this is the pistol

    Are they any good?

    They are decent.Just make sure you keep the ramp clean.My brother has one and he has to clean it after 75 rounds or it starts to jam.I saw the sarslinger junk they had yesterday for the same price.Taurus is a good company.

    You know thats the thing I was not even considering a Taurus until the guy told me to look at it and then when he told me the price. I mean 349 is pretty fing cheap.

    I really wanted that HK USP but the guy told me that Academy would be getting one around april 12th and it was priced at 879.

    If I do make up my mind and decide to get the Taurus then I will probably go with the two tone.

    I have been meaning to ask you mac, what part of town do you live in? I am on the westside of town near Coronado High School.

    Also Mac, You did not answer my question bud lol...Would you buy the Taurus at that price?

    I had the pre-pro version in 9mm and it was a good gun. I am more of a single action kind of guy so I sold it to a buddy that is still shooting it today.

    In answer to your question....yes, I would!!!

    I've had it over a year now and maybe 700 rounds through it. (I clean my weapons after every shoot)
