Reason one. Florida is the headquarters for Taurus in the U.S.A. and they are the clearing house for the firearms coming into the country.
Reason two: Like importers or being a maker Ferderal laws dictate this to a certain degree.
A number of importers over the years who have gone out of business have their names monogrammed somewhere on the imports they brought in.
Reason three: In the past gun parts have been made in Brazil and then assembled in this country or some modest work was done on the guns and then they were shipped to distributors.
Reason four: Good business practice to let customers know there is a Taurus presence in country for service and for many other good business practices.
Seeing as this has been solved this can be considered closed.
