Hello everyone! I am new to the forum but not to Taurus! My father who is now gone gave me his Taurus .357 magnum. He purchased it back in the 60 or 70's. I was so impressed with the quality of the weapon that I have always been on the lookout for another Taurus. I was fortunate to get another Taurus just this past month...a PT709. Looking forward to information I will get from the forum.
