Just took possession of my Taurus 38 super about a week ago (with rail, gold accents a MOP grips), sorry to you bling haters, but I just had to have one and after a year and a half I found one. First time out and straight from the box, I generally like to shoot them first before strip and clean, went through a box of fifty round no problem what so ever. I find people who have problem with 1911 in general have problems from the word go. I also see that most Taurus 1911 owners that have no problems in the beginning very rarely have a problem with them at all. Now I know 50 rounds is still no true indication, but I am hoping it is, that I might of got a good one. The reason I just put 50 rnds throught it is because, first ammo is not cheap here in Canada, and second I wanted to make sure it would feed the ammo before buying more, it fed American Eagle FMJ with no probs. Going to buy more ammo soon and play with my new toy some more in a few weeks. Oh yeh, $30.00 to $40.00 per box of 50 plus 13% tax for 38 super ammo.
