I took my Springfield 30-06 to a local gun store/repair shop to have it checked out for a problem. I don't shoot it anymore (my shoulder doesn't like hard hits much these days) and have been thinking about buying a hand gun; I've always used long guns in the past. While there, I saw a used Taurus 24/7 OSS in .45 ACP that the counterman said was a first generation model for $300.00. (My son already owns a Taurus .45 compact and loves it.) I came home, did some research on the internet (that's how I found this excellent forum) and am now well-versed in the potential magazine problems, and what to look for. Any other advice y'all might have for me before I trade in the 30-06 and buy the 24/7?

Welcome from north Texas!

Go for the OSS, they are great weapons, Discontinued so they will be harder to get!

If you have a 30-06 1903 Springfield, I would sell it instead of trading it in. Sight unseen, our members will give you the price of a new OSS

And, welcome from Lubbock, TX.

Welcome from Ohio!! I think you'll do better selling the rifle then you would trading it.

Welcome to the forum from North Texas! :wave: Definitely sell the Springfield. It's worth more in good condition than the 24/7 OSS. The 24/7 OSS is an outstanding pistol. The newest crop of 24/7 G2's are top rated pistols. Look at one of those while you're at it; you won't be disappointed!

Welcome to the boards, from the hills of WV...I'm new here, and one of the things that blew me away was how everyone rushes to the forum "door" to greet newcomers. A darned fine bunch of gunslingers is what you've found here.
