    Thumbs up sent my taurus judge in

    I sent my judge in to get some repair work. I called to make sure they got it and to know what is wrong with it. the guy I talked to was very nice and a under standing of what the problem was.

    OK. So what was the problem that you were having?

    Had it anything to do with quality-control lapses?

    It wasn't meant to be funny, but I laughed at the above post. It doesn't take much to make me giggle

    What! Another Taurus? Quality control issues? Couldn't be?

    Is that the one that the police took away from you for pointing it at a guy who threw a plastic pop bottle? If so, you might have done better to let them have it.

    So what was the problem you had with it Stang? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I got the gun on a trade. the cylinder would come off when you pushed the shells out of it. also the crane came off when I pushed it back on.

    first off Goldwing I did not point a gun at someone of throwing a plastic pop bottle. I pointed a gun at someone that was saying he was going to f me up. before you talk s??t tell all of it. I'm disabled and I have a shunt in my head so I'm not going to let any one hit me. I did throw a bottle but it was after he ran a stop sign, brake checked me 2 times and hit my truck. I just wanted his tag number so he could pay for my truck. I pulled my gun to stop him and it did. when he blocked the road I drove thru a ditch. all the charges was dropped. texas is a stand your ground state and that is what I was doing after he told me he was going to f me up.

    The more you tell the story, the less I think that you need to be driving around with a loaded gun. If someone tells me that they are going to F me up I can think of many choices that I would make before waving a gun around that I couldn't possibly justify using. My first choice would be to leave. What was yours? Sorry 'Stang, I suggest that you go reread your posts on "I think it's some BS" I think it's some BS too!

    By the way, did you ever get your gun back?

    Good luck,
    I guess shooting the "dammit" gun (dogs name) is the way to find out,

    I took the gun to the range today and when I fired it something hit me in the face. I fired it again and was hit again. I touched my face and I had blood on my hand. I don't know what is happening but I called them and told them and they said send it back. the guy on the phone said they may just send me a new gun. the gun hammer was hanging up and did not want to work right. so I guess I'm waiting to see what they do.

    Be nice to have a quality video to slow down the firing action,to detect the issue,,.
    I wouldn't advise shooting the gun anymore.
    A nice video would build a better case for a replacement gun. Just because he mentioned a new gun doesn't necessarily guarantee it.
    Wear more then proper protection and go fire the gun again and create some positive proof the gun is a lemon
    Oops , don't forget the video.
    Appreciate your admitting to these issues.
    Thanks
    Good luck

    Why did you send it in originally? Did they actually make it worse? Did you get the name of the guy who " was very nice and under standing of what the problem was?"
    I think he was mistaken.

    It's possible that the gun's cylinder might be a little "out of time," meaning that for each shot, it rotates either incompletely or just a little too far.
    Part of the shot charge (or of the bullet, for that matter) therefore strikes the pistol's frame and bounces back into your face.

    It could also be unburnt powder granules bouncing back, which would indicate that the cylinder-to-barrel gap is too big.
    In that case, you would see "end shake" when you try to move the (closed) cylinder back and forth longitudinally.

    The other possibility is blown primers. But you'd see them when you popped the empties out. Can't miss 'em.
    Also, blown primers are pretty unlikely, with shotgun charges. Not enough pressure, I believe.
