I would hate to think that my favorite revolver is an orphan, but from what I have read on other gun sites and the Taurus websites info it doesn't look good. I guess my complaint with Taurus is that they never come out and say that they are discontinuing a gun until long after the fact. I really wanted to get a Thunderbolt in .357, between the Taurus website and my local gun shops they could never tell me when and where I could buy one. If my Gaucho is an orphan I would be lucky to get 35% of what I payed for it. Some of the online liquidation houses are selling it for $150.00 less than what I payed for it. If some of you think I am a troll because of my just joining this forum, I have the same user name on all the forums I join. I am on THR, TFl, CAS, Leverguns.com and here.
