Just thought I would say Hi to everyone. I am on a couple of other gun forums and I love them so when I found this one I had to join. A little about myself. I'm a 31 year old married male(no kids) from Southern Missouri. I have been around guns my whole life. I was raised in a house with guns and but no gunsafe but somehow had enough common sense to know that I was not to touch my Dads guns without permission. I'm a disabled veteran(10%). Served US Army 1990-1993. Don't really like to talk about it too much but I'm proud of what I did and support our soldiers 100%. Right now I own 4 guns. I have an ancient 410 shotgun that is a wall hanger now. I have a single barrel 12 gauge that I traded a power drill for. LOL I have a Taurus model 82, (basically a copy of the S&W model 10) and my baby which is a Taurus model 455. It's a 45 acp revolver. It takes moonclips and is just AWESOME. I don't know what I'm gonna get next. I promised my wife after I got the Taurus 455 we would get her a laptop and a couple of other things so my next toy will have to wait for a while. :( Well I've said enough, I hope to talk to yall real soon.

Welcome to the board!

A laptop for a Taurus?? That doesn't seem fair to me! Nothing wrong with Taurus, but this trade seems a little skewed. )

ducktapehero,

Love your handle!

Sounds like you'll be right at home here. Pull up a chair, and read a while, and make yourself comfortable.

We'll look forward to hearing from you. Oh, and be careful of those laptop for guns trades..... almost sounds like a toys'r us scam. But at least you got your toy!

God Bless,

I could have gotten any gun I wanted but when I got about $400 saved up I couldn't wait any longer. LOL I was also considering a Smith 625 but figured being able to hold 1 more shot wasn't worth $200 and also waiting for another month. I wanted something now!!!! I have all of a sudden fallen in love with revolvers that take moonclips. I think I'm gonna get a 1917 Smith and Wesson or Colt in 45acp next. The ones made to make up for the shortage in the 1911s during WWI.

Duck, you did the right thing. Taurus guns are a heck of a buy.
