    SPECTRUM a Phantom?

    I know the company made a big splash with the new Spectrum at the SHOT show. To be honest, I am a bit disillusioned with gun manufacturers that promise something new and don't deliver. Maybe there is something wrong with the gun?? Did they discover it was their version of the Remington R51?

    If they don't roll out the Spectrum sometime soon, I am really tempted to get Ruger's new LCP II to share the stable with my TCP738.

    What do you say Taurus???

    Wasn't Kimber's 6S revolver announced in 2016? It didn't show up in Lincoln until this year. I saw it at Scheels with "New for 2017" tag on it. It sould out in less than a month.

    Yes, just like SCCY has been promising the CPX-3 .380 since 2014. They even showed the prototype at the Shot shows and now nothing.

    Its all a sales ploy...They hold out as long as they can and when it hits the shelves people
    are so amped up they go nuts...And then they claim record sales debut.

    SHOT Show guns are what they have coming. What they are working on. For industry professionals. Not for us. The internet is giving us information before we really need it.

    I got so tired of waiting for one of the upcoming guns that I went out and bought a Glock 42. I can't even remember what I was waiting on at the time. But I do love my that little Glock.

    It wouldn't be the first time that Taurus showed off a gun at the SHOT show then pulled the plug. Remember the 2011?

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Except that can really backfire. Right now the Spectrum is old news, and it hasn't even hit the shelves yet.

    My Handguns magazine that came today has an ad for it, I have to believe if they are paying for advertising they will be selling it soon.
