Taurus

An inside look at a Taurus revolver

Taurus 82 guts

Smith & Wesson revolvers are elegant representations of early 20th century machining. Ruger revolvers are simple and rugged, reducing the revolver to as few components as possible. Taurus revolvers are…neither. In fact, the inside of a Taurus revolver is a confusing mess of design choices that look like a Brazilian simply turned up at the factory on a Wednesday and said “Here…here is good” and then went for a siesta or whatever they do down there.

Taurus Marketing Fail

Check out this screen cap from the latest Taurus TV/marketing spot. You can watch the whole commercial here, but be warned that it’s pretty terrible. When I first watched it, I got to the 50 second mark, saw what was going on, and had to rewind it to watch it again to make sure my eyes didn’t deceive me. But they didn’t, and in THEIR OFFICIAL COMMERCIAL they show a woman point her own “loaded” gun at her weak hand while simultaneous finger-banging her crappy nylon holster so that she can actually get the gun in there in the first place.

It’s like this one frozen frame of video perfectly encapsulates everything bad about CCW all by itself. Carry On, Taurus. Carry On.

I’d actually much rather have the aluminum framed Taurus that’s also in the shop.
