    Smile This forum really helped me

    I am new to this forum but have been using it for recommendations on the purchase of a new handgun. After viewing I chose a new Ruger SP101 .38 Special which I am happy with. I then purchased a Taurus Model 85 .38 Special. The Taurus doesn't come close to Rugers craftsmanship or ruggedness. The Ruger's barrel is twice as thick as the Taurus. I bought the Ruger for personal protection at my office, and the Taurus for home protection. I was looking for a 22lr semiautomatic pistol and bought a Ruger MarkIII with a bull barrel. My kids love plinking and this is the perfect gun for that, very smooth and cheap to shoot. Without this forum's information I would not have made wise choices. This forum is a great place for information and I thank everyone for posting their suggestions and advice. By the way, I purchased the Taurus against the forums recommendations, but will never do that again.

    Welcome to the forum, glad you're here! New guy buys cigars.

    The guys on the forum only make recomendations, their word or experience aren't law. Please feel free to buy whatever you want, it's your money not anyone else's. Enjoy your new guns!
