Bought a new Taurus .17 hmr ss a little over a year ago and loved it. Only problem was cleaning it; I had bilateral carpal tunnel surgery and it left my wrists not quite as strong as they once were. Had a real tough time getting a brush down that tiny bore. Finally gave up and sold it. Hated to see it go; it was one of several Tauri I own and they've all been great shooters. Only trouble with that one was the trigger pull in DA was a little rough but a few minutes polishing took care of that - made it smooth as could be. It was accurate and a blast (pun intended) to shoot.
