    10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Taurus . .

    Was perusing the NRA online publishing pages and ran across this article in the November 2015 issue of American Hunter:

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    Oh, I agree. Most of us who are involved in the gun culture - particularly the Taurus culture - likely know most of these but it caught my eye due to its timing. A pro Taurus article published in time for Christmas shoppers and in the wake of the company's foils . . .

    But, there were still a few pearls to be noted.

    Read this. I just purchased my first Taurus revolver. Still adjusting to it and going to the range.

    "When the contract ran out in 1980, Beretta sold the plant to Forjas Taurus, which gained ownership of everything that had once belonged to Beretta, including drawings, tooling and machinery. Being in the pistol business, Forjas Taurus put its new assets to use, resulting in the PT-92 and PT-99."


    I did know that, I read it in a few places, and I had some buddies with a Taurus. So when I got the chance, I got a PT-92 & a PT-99, and I paid less than $600 combined. Those were some of my best guns at unbeatable prices. I bought the PT-92 on the spot for $300 and the PT-99 on the spot for $250!
