    M82...

    This is a good gun, should have never gone away in the first place...

I hope all those who subscribe to this democratic socialism reap the bennies that they sowed, just leave me and mine alone!.......

    So I clicked the link in the OP and when the Taurus web site opened I got this message:




    Looks legit but when I downloaded the font pack the file wouldn't run. Searched the font name and found this:

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/vir...ont-pack-guide

    So according to the explanation above it seems the Taurus web site may have been hacked. And if you don't have good anti-virus software running (I have Norton), you may get infected.

    And I found I can't just delete the files. Now I'm following these instructions:

    Hope they work.

    Well, the good news is that all those years I spent as a command-line maven working MS/DOS and Novell Netware weren't in vain. In order to remove the file I had to boot into Safe Mode-Command Prompt, navigate to the directory (DOS had directories, Windows has folders) where the file was located and delete it, all via Command.com commands. I tried to rename it but could not but I was able to delete it.

    It's a shame they ruined a nice gun with that black primer finish.

    To my knowledge Taurus never stopped making the 82 just changed the cosmetics. I do know they no longer carry the stainless model

    There is a REAL man among us. Good work.

    I run Linux. Very little chance of catching anything. Still careful though. I saw that message and
    backed out.

    All the Best,
