You’ll Want to See the Animal That Had This Grown Man Scaling a Backyard Fence at Full Sprint

On FARK, the headline for this was: How much blood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck blood?

Rampaging Woodchuck Terrorizes N.H. Neighborhood

Gary McGrath, a woodworker, was out in his yard when a groundhog ran up to his foot, CBS Boston reports. McGrath lightly kicked the groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, but it came back. McGrath kicked harder this time and then fled into his garage. The rampaging rodent stayed on his heels and made its way into the garage, forcing McGrath to hide inside his house.

Why a star football player traded NFL career for a tractor

At one point number 60, Jason Brown, was one of the best centers in the NFL.

At one point he had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams.

And at one point he decided it was all meaningless - and just walked away from football.

I can't get up and down like that on the ground, and only have that M&P 15-22, so something like this isn't for me anyway.

I agree. I have always said that if someone gave me a Taurus tomorrow, it'd be posted for sale immediately. I don't want one.

Still see the same ol complains on the forums too....

I think you a member of enough forums to know people love to hate, regardless of actual experiences....
Id rather reserve judgement on first hand experience of any gun.

I like the curved idea, seems ingenious if it works... Course I am not left handed. Nor would carry a pocket pistol made by any manufacture..

Yes, but I often also see some of the same people longterm on various forums as well. When those people tell stories, I do keep an eye on it. Otherwise, why bother to even believe anyone on the forums. It is true that someone could lie - but when details are given - and someone types out their experience with something - I give it the benefit of the doubt.

And, as many forums as I am on - I've seen enough of the Taurus experience to avoid it. I've also owned one Taurus years ago. And, I looked at their 92 model many times in the 1990s. I've seen enough...

I'm definitely skeptical of Taurus, but last I heard they had a new CEO that was really interested in making them into a top shelf brand and was trying to improve both their manufacturing QA and their designs.

I'd be curious to see this pistol put through its paces.

I heard that too, but I think that was like a year ago. And, I hadn't seen anything new to make me rethink things. Still see the same ol complains on the forums too....

My thoughts too. Frankly the curve feature seems nearly pointless, but the size/shape/features could make for a good backup gun or light carry gun for ladies seeking something tiny, if it wasn't from Taurus or by some miracle is decent.

I will admit that due to my prejudice - it could be the greatest gun in the world - I still wouldn't buy one because of who makes it...  :facepalm:

If that makes me a gun snob, so be it... Watch out for the snobbery  :th_thicon_funny:

Kinda interesting. Too bad it is made by Taurus, which means I'll never get one...

First Look: Taurus Curve

Rather than develop another pistol that requires people to conform around the dimensions of a gun, the new Taurus Curve conforms around the contours of the human body.

Gun sales surge ahead of jury's Ferguson decision

Metro Shooting Supplies, in an area near the city's main airport, reports selling two to three times more weapons than usual in recent weeks — an average of 30 to 50 guns each day — while the jury prepares to conclude its three-month review of the case that sparked looting and weeks of sometimes-violent protests in August.

I'm not sure if Downrange has their skeet range setup yet.

I would suggest my clubs, but I wont be in the country in Jan...

I'm planning to mail in my membership there 1st of January. But I don't want my first trip there to be with a group of people until I get the feel of the place and the people.

The vision in my right eye is not so good. So I have to shoot lefty.

I have a childhood injury to my left arm, and it has some nerve damage. A lot of activities don't feel right when I try to use my left hand, so I use my right hand more than most right handed people probably would. I just can't shoot left handed.

I still want one...  :th_thicon_cry: :th_thicon_cry: :th_thicon_cry: :th_thicon_cry:

Dont you still have some 92's? just buy the parts little by little then send your Frame/Slide off for the refinish/dehorn etc.

Yes, I still have a couple of 92s with night sights. I don't want to mess with them, though. I like them as is. I like them the way they are. I wanted this specific variation. I'm saving with Christmas $ and other funds. Maybe later next year I can raise enough money to get one. We'll see.

#4 was good, but I still like #2 more than the 4th one. 1st one being my favorite.

Only #1 and #2 felt like "Diehard" - in that it was in one location pretty much.

What's your preference for Thanksgiving?
