It's about time!

I'm glad to see that it's actually going to see the light of day and hopefully it will set a new standard of quality for the Taurus brand. (i.e. That they'll replace their black oxide finish with Melonite across the board.)

Yeah let's just wait until somebody sees one in a gun case. :D I remember the Slim started life looking one way at the SHOT show, and was completely redesigned before it was released about a year later. Throw in a senior management change, and we just don't know what's really going on.

I guess soon is subjective.. If we are talking about the different times the layers of the earth were formed, it will be soon.

For instance, if someone digs up my bones in 10,000 years and carbon dates them, it will still be soon!

Until I hold one in my hands, I will not believe anything on ETA of the Spectrum in ANY magazine.
I've got money on seeing the new Ford Bronco in a showroom before I see a Taurus Spectrum in a gun store.

I'll believe it when I see one on a store shelf.

I'm still waiting for those replica Merwin and Hulberts to ship.

Or the Turkish Winchester 1887 replicas.

Or a half a dozen different guns from USFA.

Or the Italian Winchester '92 Takedown replicas.

....or the Henry Brass Big Boy in .327 Fed Mag which was announced a couple of months before the Spectrum. I suspect both will come out after I spend the gun money I have been holding.

Well, I checked the date on the magazine and it's January 2018. Must be a future prediction or hope or something. Not holding my breath.

You're a NY State Trooper??
No, he just bought it 2nd hand at a police auction.:p Sort of like all the young folks driving the Crown Vics.

At least THEY repaint the Crown Vics right after they get them.

I have no pressing need for a .380 as my .38 spl LCR works just fine for EDC...but I will consider getting a Spectrum after they have been out for a good number of months and I can read about any issues with them first. Even if I needed a .380, I am not overly inclined to be a beta-tester for any gun manufacturer. If I had the need for one, I would probably just jump on a S&W Bodyguard .380, instead. A couple of buddies have them and both like them a lot....and the few times I have shot their Bodyguards, I liked it, too!

But...the Spectrum does intrigue me.
