    PaulTaurus - New to Site from East TN

    Just signed up because I am a TAURUS user, two pistols PT111 G2 bought in 2016 and a Spectrum 380 bought Dec of 2018.

    Satisfied with both guns now and the TAURUS service also after some issues with the Spectrum. The G2 has always been good and I shoot it OK (my skills have improved - it was not the gun, and I am still not an expert LOL).

    The Spectrum had it's issue, sent back twice, seems to be OK now (more details on that later).

    Other than the shooting which I got into Dec of 2105 with first pistol purchase (RUGER SR22):

    I ride two wheels a lot (near 400,000 miles since may of 2001). I have a Suzuki Burgman 400cc Scooter, and a Honda CB500X 500cc called an Adventure bike (off road, not trails). Both have a bit over 60,000 miles on them. I ride 20,000 per year + / -.

    I enjoy gym workouts (3 or so per week), and still able to walk behind a mower for yard work, house maintenance. Been lucky health wise at now 81 years old.

    I also became interested in the study of self defense issues. Particularly, Laws Of Self Defense and Andrew Blanca's information on the topic. He has a book by that title and also offers a lot of free information if you are signed up. It is a touchy issue and you can get into a lot of trouble (legally) if you make the wrong decision in what YOU THINK is a Self Defense as the LAW may not agree with your choice to use or brandish a Deadly Weapon (Deadly Force is a touchy issue, and it had better meet the 5 rules for a defense legally).

    Other than this site -- I use TN Gun Owners (lot of good info on there also).

    Let me be the first to welcome you!

    There are quite a few people on this board that have similar interests with yours, so you should fit in just fine. There's quite a bit of "gun talk" but also other topics come up that may be right down your alley.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois! My two wheels are non-motorized, although I haven't gotten on those much in recent years either.

    I have the PT 111 G2 and the SR 22...both are great pistols!
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
