Taurus Offers Sizzling Summer Rebate Program

Up to $50 Back by Mail on New TX22 and Select Revolvers

Taurus has announced a promotional discount for one of the company’s newest and most innovative polymer-frame pistols. The Sizzling Summer Rebate program will offer consumers a $50 rebate when they purchase the groundbreaking TaurusTX 22 semi-auto .22LR handgun between July 1 and September 30, 2019

The new TaurusTX 22 is engineered to be an out-of-the-box competition-ready polymer-frame pistol. Chambered for .22LR, the TX22 was designed to serve as a high-volume, full-frame handgun for competition or for training.

Built around a striker-fire system, the TX22 features a crisp 5-lb. trigger pull weight and positive reset. This refined trigger works with an easy-to-actuate recoil spring and aggressive slide serrations to make operation easy for beginners or advanced shooters. Other features include an ambidextrous manual safety, adjustable rear sights, and a reversible mag release.

The Sizzling Summer Rebate also offers up to $30 back on the purchase of select Model 856 revolvers.

The 6-shot 856 line usurped the 5-shot Model 85 line in recent years, featuring a rugged compact frame, smooth cylinder operation, and ergonomic, soft-rubber grip that assists in quick target reacquisition for follow-up shots. The aluminum-frame 856 Ultra-Lite model is an especially easy all-day carry. Chambered for .38 Special, the 856 series revolvers are offered with conventional hammer or spurless hammer designs in DA/SA or DAO, respectively.

The limited-time rebate program provides qualifying purchasers of all matte black model 856 and 856 Ultra-Lite revolvers with a $25 rebate offer while purchasers of all matte stainless models can receive a $30 rebate. Like the TX22 offer, the 856 rebate is valid from July 1 through September 30, 2019.

Governor Opposes Judge on Self Defense Handgun Issue

S&W Takes on Taurus in the Big, Multi-Caliber Revolver Category

Love it or hate it, The Taurus Judge has been around for a while now.  In case you’ve been under a rock (or if you just ignored those strange looking things in the corner of your gun shop’s case), the Judge, pictured at right, is a Taurus revolver capable of firing both .410 shotgun shells and .45 Colt rounds.  Taurus also offers other flavors of Judge revolvers which can add .454 Casull rounds into the mix.  The revolver, formerly model 4410, gained the Judge moniker in 2006 after Taurus Executive VP Bob Morrison learned that the firearm was becoming popular for courtroom self-defense with judges in high-crime areas.

The Judge line of revolvers is marketed as a short-distance self defense firearm and is also enjoying some popularity as a “snake gun” or “rat gun.”  Despite numerous critics of the platform, the Judge line seems to be selling briskly and is reported to have become Taurus’ top selling firearm.  Perhaps to the chagrin of those critics, Smith & Wesson has entered the market with their answer to the Judge:  the cleverly named Governor, which also fires .45 Colt and 2.5″ .410 cartridges but also introduces the ability to fire .45ACP rounds.

To be sure, the idea of a big, heavy revolver that can shoot a variety of big, heavy ammunition isn’t Continue reading
