    Question Newby onboard...

    Hi Guys.. Just bought a secondhand Taurus 669, 357mag, 6" barrel, blued. Very nice to shoot, very accurate, very clean and tight action. Tried Taurus search profile to check serial number but I just get an error message (the serial number is only five digits and no letters).

    Any suggestions as to how best to proceed?

    By the way, I live in a little place called the Isle of Man. It is part of Great Britain, but it is NOT part of the United Kingdom.. therefore we are fortunate enough not to have the UK handgun ban forced on us..!! I shoot all manner of stuff; I have 2x.22, a .243, .308 and five 12g shotguns of varying types.

    Welcome from West Texas!

    A call to Taurus might get you the info you’re looking for.
    ​All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.

    Welcome from this side of the pond in the northern part of Illinois! The politicians here are working hard to make us look like the UK. It sounds like you folks safeguard your freedoms!

    Maybe the chat line is a better answer for someone up in the Irish Sea!

    Welcome aboard, or abroad as the case may be. As suggested above, I'd try the Taurus chat from their web site. If they are no help, I'd contact the HQ in Brazil, as your weapon is likely unknown to the American customer service people.

    I always am interested to hear perspectives from around the world. Since you do have your own government, what gun laws do you have in place?

    When people lose their way and begin to vote for their own yokes and chains and suddenly we’re all wearing them, when Government turns tyrannical and the light of liberty is being extinguished.... our 2nd amendment is our ONLY hope.
