    These warnings appear on the same page of the Taurus revolver manual. What am I supposed to do???? :uhoh:

    Do whatever you want. This is nothing more than some lawyer trying to cover Taurus' ass in the event of some idiot doing something stupid.

    Pesonally, I keep a single gun ready to go for emergencies and have everything else locked away.

    I know your probably kidding and not really looking for an answer, but just a typical way of covering all their bases. In a way it seems like a cheap cop out to keep law suits away (and it is), but when you think about it, it makes people think for themselves (which is a very good thing) while keeping Taurus out of liability. :)

    "Is gun. Is NOT safe!"

    Both are true. It's refreshing to see the first warning.

    Anything you do will increase the level of entropy and may contribute to the eventual heat death of the Universe.

    I'm very suprised to see the first statement in a firearms manual. Obviously something Taurus put in there and not the CYA lawyers.

    Ruger's manual for my Mark III at one point says the gun should be stored uncocked - yet the hammer must be cocked in order to engage the safety and activate the internal lock, or to pull the bolt back and install the external lock.

    Simple answer. Have two guns, one locked up, one available. Plain as the nose on your face! :rolleyes:

    Aha, so it's nothing but a ploy to double their sales! I'm on to you, Taurus.

    each state requires that storage warnings are specifically stated in exact wording... go to ruger's site and look at the manual for the new SR-9... there are 4 pages of state mandated warnings all basically the same...

    What it's saying essentially, is that anything you do can get you killed. (That includes doing nothing.) The choice is yours as to which presents the most danger.

    Just like when I was in the Army:

    When given two conflicting orders, obey them both. :neener:
