    Well, we need to find those others after 2005 just for added ammo. I mean 10 years without an award does not impress anyone or support ones point. ....Just saying.

    This link below contains more current Conversation-Ammunition. We know they don't keep the US website 100% current, so there maybe others.

    Contains awards thru 2013: Awards - Taurus International

    I own equal numbers of S & W revolvers and Taurus, Rossi revolvers. Maybe I am just fortunate, never any problems with any of them, but I can honestly say I think the Tauri and Rossi have better finishes, lighter double action triggers and smoother actions than the same number of S & W's and I have two tuned S & W's. Only one Taurus I own was tuned, a blue model 66, and at least 6 of our members can attest to probably never shooting any other as well tuned and light of a trigger pull for double action as this 66 is. It was tuned by my friend Outdoor Joe who tunes everything he owns, even the 9 various Marlin vintage lever actions in his collection.

    Maybe I should pay him to tune all my guns that haven't been tuned.

    I read somewhere that the PT740 was the 2011 Handgun of the Year.

    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."
