    The last couple of times that I have gone to visit family in Quincy, Florida, I have noticed a lot of construction going on in and around the Bainbridge area, this explains it!!

    Gosh, I hope they don't start making "Visible Curves".

    Probably needed a plant just to handle warranty work...

    I’ve got a Taurus I bought about 45 years ago. All I could afford on a privates pay. It has worked flawlessly all these years.

    According to the article, they're only moving from Florida to Georgia. Not opening an additional plant.

    I don't know, I only have one, that's a Rossi revolver made by Taurus in Brazil . Been shooting fine for many years.

    I guess that every once in awhile a good one slips by Taurus' usual quality control.

    I guess. My understanding is that the one that I have was made in a plant from an old S&W contract with the Brazilian government. When the contract ended, Taurus bought the plant and machinery and labeled it Rossi.

    Took a friend to the range this morning. He has a Taurus G2 Millineum and is trying to learn to shoot. Not a bad gun until you try to pull the trigger. That pistol has to have the absolute worst trigger I have ever seen. Far worse than any Hi Point I have ever shot.

    At first, I thought it was broken, that I didn't load it correctly or that i had missed the safety. Nnnooo, when the trigger stops, you must pull through the 100 pound pull of wall to get it to move a millimeter more so it can fire. There is no way to shoot it well.

    The best I could get was 4 inch group at 10 feet. I was on target but it took 100% focus to maintain the sight picture through the squeeze. My buddy was all over the place with it, usually low and left. When I say low, I mean a foot and a half low.

    That sounds like the H&K VP 70Z that I had about 40 years ago.
