Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

Last I read it cost $550 to file a claim separation - kinda hard to justify on a $200 pistol - unless of course, you happened to have an AD/ND and injury resulted. I'll see if I can find a link to the final info. Taurus can't say no to honoring the ruling. Well, I guess they can if they want to be ...

Re: Morse Code Man -- Superhero!

Great article! Thanks for posting JALLEN! :thumbs2: I'd love to have a ham shack like that guy! Anybody recognize his transceiver? Looked kinda like a Kenwood or an ICOM, or Maybe a TEN-TEC, or maybe a Yeasu.....or something. :lol: Great antenna farm he had too! Shown in the video is an Elecraft K3.

Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

..........................................................Here's the defect I asked them about. Sometimes when the slide locks back after the last shot, and I put a new mag in, the slide will release when I tap the bottom of the new mag. It's a PT-111 9mm.

Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

I sent mine in long before they had a plan. I called to inquire about recall; they Emailed me a FedEx label and I sent them off. Some have gotten around the problem of having to go to settlement site by saying they were having some problems with their (whatever recalled pistol) and they got a prepa...

Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

FYI. I just talked to the person at the settlement's phone no. 844-528-0180 and asked her why people are already getting their firearms back from Taurus replaced/repaired and she said, "I have no idea why that is happening...". I could get NO other information from her, other than she agreed that an...

Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

I've tried to get Taurus Customer Service to tell me something other than, "..you can get information from the settlement website.." or "..fill out the Contact Us form..." I've done all that and also called the settlement folks on Aug. 29,2016, and they told me I must wait for the final approval dat...

Re: Missouri Republicans vote to override veto of gun bill

Good for Missouri, does this only apply to Missouri residents, or will out of state folks still have to have a LTC, that Missouri has reciprocity? I didn't see a mod to their reciprocity rule, but as for Missouri residents I think they will still need to have an concealed carry endorsement on their...

Re: Disarmed by uninformed officer

A few questions...was the officer off-duty and employed by the store as a private security officer and acting under the store's policies, or was he on-duty and acting under his department's policies? In Texas? What county?
