My thoughts exactly. And he's only got 2 posts. Can this be anymore obvious?
Since that is a dealer exclusive color it would be reasonable to expect it not to be out until 2018. That was part of the marketing plan. Yes it is frustrating waiting on the release I don't think it has been scrapped. Time will tell.Did a search out of curiosity & found a place that claimed to have 1 Taurus Spectrum in stock. So I clicked on it & it reads "Pre-order (2018 arrival). I laughed. Here's the link I found: The Last Stand | Crow exclusive Taurus Spectrum .380 TORCH RED/BLK PRE-ORDER (2018 Arrival) My guess is Taurus decided not to make it & they're hoping we forget about it.
Those are nice. I rented one & it was so easy to punch out one big hole at 7 yards. Decent trigger & mine was 100% reliable. I think the small group was due to a decent sized grip. I can't shoot anywhere close to that with my Pico 380 because the grip is barely bigger than the magazine. 1 1/2 finger grip, snappy. The Spectrum, well the end of the 3rd quarter is Sept 30. 20 more days, we'll see.My most favorite right now is my .380 Glock 42.
In the meantime, no new Spectrums yet at local stores or at any big-web online stores I deal with.
