    Taurus PT G1 Class Action Experience?

    I called Taurus last week since it had been eight (8) weeks, and they said it was delivered the week after Thanksgiving, so I dropped by my dealer the next day. It arrived with my name on it but no contact information. Now, I just have to decide whether to try to sell it "new" or shoot it and decide after that.

    It happened in 1985...

    Funny you should say that. I remember when they reintroduced "Coke Classic", and battery acid is what came to mind when I tasted it after adjusting to "New" Coke.

    November 10, 1975.

    Thanks for sharing that. I enjoyed the song despite the sad event that inspired it.

    Taurus PT G1 Class Action Experience?

    I called back and "ordered" a G2C. They said it would be eight (8) weeks, so maybe I'll have it on time for Christmas. The reset issue on the Curve trigger was not something I was willing to accept. I'm glad I found that Kirsten Joy Weiss review. If you short-stroke the trigger, you have to rack the slide to reset the trigger.

    Taurus PT G1 Class Action Experience?

    I got a voicemail yesterday. When I called them today, I was given a choice between a G2C (9mm) and Curve w/Laser. I did not ask how soon I could expect to receive it after I told them my choice. So, I am doing a little research. The price for the Curve is higher at Bud's than the G2C, and I was thinking about buying a LCP II. So, I'm leaning toward the Curve. But, I know a lot of people have been happy with their PT111s, so that might be the safer choice. Thoughts? Anyone have experience with either? Thanks

    How to tell if a tool is stolen

    I would definitely be suspicious of "new" tools with no box. When I worked in retail an old trick was to remove the power tool from the box, put it into a mailbox, and buy the (much cheaper) mailbox (which contained a couple of expensive tools at that point. It was a frustrating feeling to find empty tool boxes on the mailbox aisle.

    TN Senate Preference

    I think I'll have to pull for the Republican nominee. Party affiliation is, unfortunately, way too important at the federal level. What happened to Joe Carr?

    What are you reading right now?

    Excellent choice. Read Left of Bang next if you haven't already. Thanks! I already have it on hand. :-)

    The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker
  14. I went to BBQ Fest today (Thursday) around noon. They were not checking tickets, yet. However, I was "wanded" thoroughly. So, I am not sure if the security differed because there were different wand operators, or BBQ Fest wasn't busy and Music Fest had a long line, or if they intentionally made adjustments after Music Fest.

    I am pretty sure I have seen at least one post here (and maybe more) of someone that returned their pistol and got a replacement. However, that post was before the settlement had final approval.
