    b4 you all say anything neg about my aim, the missed"" shots are from a .22lr rifle (uptop) that were shot at the little guys and the squares to see how badly calibrated the scope was. little hole=22 big holes=.40.
    and the scope is too high, but it is not mounted(notice the screw)

    Welcome, and nice collection.
    That video was interesting, but the lock and external safeties are deal breakers for me on the taurus.

    Welcome! I also wanted to ask about that 24/7. They make a big deal of the trigger, but I really can't really see how it differs from any other SA/DA auto. How's the accuracy?

    the 24/7 shoots as good as my glock, the trigger gets some getting used to but I like it... the paper target (big holes) werer shot with the taurus at roughly 20 meters, good enough for me at 60 ft
    great gun, carrying it as I type now.

    I believe that's a Savage MK II. I bought one from Wal-Mart a while back for $75.

    I also have the same little Savage Mark II - so far I have never had a problem with it, great little pea shooter.

    I was not impressed with the iron sights - no amount of adjustment could get them to shoot anywere near the target.

    So I tossed on the cheasy little scope and got over it - for $90 I cant complain. I could put a nicer scope on it but for fun plinking there isnt much since.

    ive been on a bunch of sites, and this one and maybe the firearms forum, have probably some of the best guys out there, former military and the like here, but dont act like a bunch of Chairborne Strangers, with their ar's and sog knives stuck up their behinds, to keep their backs ramrod straight, as they belittle you for how little you know. some of the other sites out there make me embarrassed to be former military. this here is a good one.
    by the way , im a huge saiga fan, and i understand the Taurus 24/7 is one of the most comfortable fireing guns out there. what is your opinion?
