Taurus getting into action shooting cannot be good for my wallet - I sense a whole line of PT1911 race/near-race guns incoming.

I think Noisy has a point. This is going to sell way too many Tauri. We may even find ourselves mainstream.

Jessie is not only a world class shooter, and a Lady, but...

She's a "Babeasaurus"...that can hold her own against any cover model from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

I think this is great news! I know Airwrench is going to like this! Jessie is an amazing shooter and will make a tremendous shooter for team Taurus! When we visited Taurus Airwrench made a point of asking about team sponsorship and the CEO, Mark Kresser said then that they were "looking into" doing something along those lines. All I can say is WOW! Nice going!

That news is hot off the press...she doesn't even have them posted on her web site yet as a sponsor.

She did mention it on her FB. Everyone who has a FB jump out there and like her.

I have a good scoop occasionally.

Come on guys! You complain when we are zeros and you complain when we are heros. You just can't make some folks happy! :)

Definitely a step in the right direction! Expect, respect, and rising prices!

I don't believe prices will increase significantly with Ruger snapping at their heels with their pricing. Iron sharpens iron. Having her on Team Taurus will certainly help overcome the past "bad press" Taurus has been subjected to.

Can't wait to see Jessie.

Skiff got to see her a while back when he visited my gun club.

I have shot with her in steel and USPSA matches and she is all that. What really is her strong point
is along with being very attractive and being an awesome shooter she is absolutely down to earth
and friendly.

It makes sense to go this way on Facebook. There is a Taurus Handguns page on Facebook, goofy though it is. I pasted a link to here there.

This keeps gun forums like TFL and THR irrelevant because the maximum coverage is out there. Not with them. Keep those forums in the dark.

This is going to be a very positive event for Taurus. It should, in time make a variety of accessories that are not currently available for Taurus guns become available as well. It's definitely going to impact some of the Internet commandos that have nothing better to do than bash Taurus. It should drive them nuts, actually!
