I've had that gun for about 10 years without a problem. The Tarsus 9mm has a smaller frame then a lot of 9mms and fits my hand perfectly. I've never had a problem with the 870 or either Tarsus although I do have an issue with assembling the 870. There is a tricky spring that you have to pinch in just the right way to put the magazine/receiver together and I can't seem to be able to do it every time. DK can but I'm hit and miss. I got the 870 20 gauge because its a good home defense weapon and doesn't have a big recoil. In a pinch I could take down a deer if I had to. Mine came with a smaller "fowl" barrel, too. I think I'm pretty will set for home defense or emergency food acquisition. Lisa
I'm On Fire wrote:At the end of April the beginning of this month I was in vacation and I applied for my firearms license. I just got a call from the local PD saying my paperwork is done and I can go pick it up. I'm not 100% sure if that means my lice se is in or if it means all the clerical stuff is done and I have to take the paperwork to the state police to initiate the background check. I'm thinking the later and I have to take the paperwork over the state police for the background check.
But, in the off chance that is actually the license I would like some opinions on some guns I've been looking at.
The first is a Remington 870; I've talked to a few people and they all say it is a very good shotgun. What's your opinion on it?
The second is a Taurus 1911, anyone here have any experience with Taurus International?
The HK P7 is hands down the safest, most accurate carry gun ever made.
