Academy has them on sale. Not the DB9FS, but the small DB9. Talk me out of buying one.
Yes, other people have said that. Even Hickok45, in his Youtube video on the DB9, had a malfunction shooting it one-handed. A close-range defensive pistol should be operable with one hand, while the other hand deflects an attacker's weapon. I wouldn't want to have a malfunction on my first magazine in a defensive situation, because one magazine is all I'm likely to get in a pistol that goes click when empty.The only problems I have ever had with mine are jams on the first magazine-full of a new shooting session, because I forget how lightweight they are and don't hold them tightly. They are very prone to limp-wristing, so you have to consciously hold them tight. If I do that with both of mine, they are almost 100% reliable.
Just go to the diamondback forums and we won't have to talk out of one. You'll run screaming!!!
It never fails when these threads come up people try to convince others that bottom barrel firearms are as good as upper tier.
Just go to taurusarmed.net and read the forums. The actual owners there describing their problems is all you need to know.
Will Taurus make good on them? MOST of the time.
I'm on the Diamondback forum and I'm not sure what you're talking about. That's not what I've seen there.Just go to the diamondback forums and we won't have to talk out of one. You'll run screaming!!!
yeah I followed along with that thread.....that guy was just being a typical Taurus basher.Hmm, you know, just the other day I was on THR arguing with a guy that said the same thing about going to taurusarmed.net. :icon_ poke:
OK, first off, I know nothing about Dimondback and ain't in the market. I've filled that niche long ago and am happy. I've had my Kel Tec P11 since 1996. It's eaten over 12,000 trouble free rounds with one exception, an extractor broke about 2 years ago. I had a new extractor in the mail within a week. As I do carry +P and have fired some (recommended limited +P) and the extractor has been redesigned, I don't think even THAT was such a big deal.
Yeah, check this out...post number 25, then tell me that what haters on other boards say is truth....
