    Mine neither. That's why I own about 18 pistols, and 1 revolver. I figured I could stick it in the truck.

    Uhh, yeah, sure...but did your 627 cost a mere $250? I'm all about Smith quality, but I've never heard of many problems from Taurus revolvers. Yeah, their autos, for the most part, suck, but their revolvers are decent... :x:

    I would do it. Lifetime warranty however I have heard horror stories about sending guns back. My PT1911 needs to be fixed and it will be going to a local shop.

    You better fucking buy it. I have been wanting that EXACT gun for about two years now and I never found it for that cheap.

    I'm waiting on an e-mail back from the guy. I asked for pics and if that was his best price. LOL! Hell, if he's letting it go for that little, I figure he's desperate. I gotta drive my heavy Chevy over an 1.5 hours to go get it... :greddy:

    I saw a guys raging bull .44 break after 6 rounds. The hammer failed to stay in the cocked position without touching the trigger.

    I didn't say it would be for 250. I've seen used ones for 500. Which is worth spending the extra.
