    Need I say more?

    BTW, to whom it may concern because we bought the gun used (only had few hundred rounds through it) we had to pay for our shipping to and from Miami. Also Harley and any other vehicle manufacturer should have to pay for repairs on a new vehicle that leaks oil. They did on mine all three times.
    Maybe you did have to pay shipping to Miami, but not back to you. Taurus ships the gun back on their dime & thats a fact. FWIW, If it dont leak oil, it AINT a real Harley!

    And that my friend is why I ride a Kawasaki. I want a motorcycle that will turn, stop, and go when I twist the thottle. I also want it to keep its fluids inside itself and not "mark its spot". A Harley cannot seem to do these things very well so I don't ride them.

    But we are off subject here this is NOT a motorcycle forum, but a gun forum. I only used the Harley analogy to show a point.

    That's my thought, as well. Factory ammo blowing the case head off and leaving the body of the case in the chamber is pretty strange. I'm not sure I have ever seen a case head separation on factory pistol ammo.

    I agree, i've only seen that happen with reloads.

    And really hot loads in much-reloaded cases.

    Re: Taurus CS Sucks!!

    I've seen it occur with factory ammo, once. In '96 a member of our cowboy action shooting club blew up two Ruger Vaquero 45 Colts back to back. When the bullets were pulled he had some that had 3 times the hottest loads listed for Unique powder. If you know anything about the original Vaqueros you know they were some kind o' stout. He was using new unfired Starline brass & Starline is the best you can get.

    There is nothing manmade that is perfect & anything man makes can be screwed up.

    Sounds like a commercial reloader, and not factory ammo such as Remington and Federal. The way the big boys make ammo it's pretty much impossible for the machinery to double charge a case, much less triple charge one. I've been shooting very heavy charges of Unique in .45 Colt for years and a triple max charge of Unique for a 250gr bullet would be about 27 grains and that would almost overflow the case. It would, at the least, be a very compressed load.

    Re: Taurus CS Sucks!!

    Well, to get this thread back on track.

    I called CS today since it has been 4 weeks ago that it was received. The CS person said it will problably be next week or at least thats the story this week. When I call next I am sure it will be some other story.

    I am being to feel like if we ever see this gun again we will be lucky. Maybe we will see sometime in February or March of 2010 or maybe 2011 or . . . ??? I guess the best thing to do is just buy my wife another gun and just forget we even have this one.

    It may have been a commercial reloader Major. IIRC they had a recall on a certain lot. In the incident in which the guy blew up the Vaqueros, he reloaded them himself and was extremely careless. They were indeed compressed. It's a miracle nobody was injured or killed.

    What is really amazing is Ruger repaired the one & replaced the other free of charge & sent him a note back with his guns telling him to be more careful with his reloading. How's that for standing behind a lifetime warranty?
