    What does OSS stand for

    Newbie here and having picked up a 24/7 OSS in .45 I got to wondering, does the OSS actually stand for anything? Maybe be something like Obviously Something Special or something like that? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Nothing really, we've had this discussion before...just sounds good! Pick whichever sounds good to you, Office of Secret Service or Special Service or Stragetic Service or Spy Service, take your pick and embelish it with any story you want to include and amaze your friends!

    I read in a gun magazine that it doesn't stand for anything, and that Taurus called it that because the OSS was the precursor to the CIA and that sounds cool.
    Right Meow?

    Re: What does OSS stand for

    I read somewhere that it stands for "06 submission" (pronounced oh-six-submission). When the military was putting out calls for a new service pistol design, the candidate guns were supposed to be submitted for consideration in 2006. I can't remember where I read this, so I have no idea if it's really true. Seems to make sense though.
