good thing for lifetime warranty. put 200 rounds through the gun lastnight at a match last set had two ftf and then the gun ceased to fire/ no hammer drop. guy at the shop took it appart found a piece of the frame just before the hammer area had blown away. about the size of a pencil eraser. no-one has ever seen anything like it. they boxed it up sent it to taurus. I'll keep you informed on the outcome. anyone have somthing like this happen. gun had maybe 5k rounds through it total less than year old.
