In '08' or '09', I ordered mine from a local store and they had it in the next day for a little over $300. If I recall, several were available on GunBroker bid page also. Now that model seems very hard to find in any barrel length. Is Taurus concentrating on the Tracker models ? Has the price increase killed sales ? I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay the ~$600+ today. Could Taurus be on a different model assembling cycle like Ruger ? I hate to see such a quality piece so difficult for new or current Taurus shooters to buy one.
