Taurus Model 82

If any of you are in the market for a high quality handgun at a modest price J&G Sales has a boatload of European police/military surplus Taurus .38's at $149.95. This is a good deal my friends. These handguns are very similar to any K frame Smith.

You will, of course, need to ship thru you local friendly gun shop. Fees usually run around $25.00, or less.

She will arrive with either rubber or original wooden grips.

No, not a single nickle reaches my pocket for this public service announcement.

  1. We'd have one but for a tiny problem: it's so much too big for my hands that I couldn't use it in a pinch. Every gun in the house I can use if I need to. I figure that's a good rule. With the Taurus revolver, I could barely reach the trigger--reach, not pull--nor yet thumb the hammer back. :(

  2. Kick hubby in the butt and tell him to purchase you an Elsie Pea...and he can use the Taurus.

  3. Great deal, too bad I have all the weapons I need right now (yeah right). I will pass this along.

    1. I know how you feel. It would make a nice 'trade' or stash weapon for future use. Thanks, my friend.

  4. In seriousness this is the first time since I've been paying attention to firearms prices that the whole "buy a used 38 revolver for less than a Hi-Pointe" actually could apply.

    1. True, and they have a great deal on ammo too. Thanks, Odysseus.

  5. Good prices for a good, RELIABLE pistol.
    I wonder what shape they're in when you get them?

    1. They must be in good shape, J&G is one of the most respected companies out there and I don't believe they'd market them in bad condition. Besides, revolvers are known for their reliability. Thanks, Bubba.

  6. I had a Taurus but it was too awkward and heavy for my hands. My hands are too small. I would rather have my 4.10 shotgun. It is my snake killer and I have been known to answer the door carrying it. I like something easy to shoot for a pistol. Can you tell me, what is the Elsie Pea?

    1. The LCP (get it, Elsie Pea) is a little semi-auto handgun by Ruger. It's chambered in the .380. My wife owns one. It's little, a pocket pistol.

  7. OR, if you're within a 2 hour drive in AZ...go to Prescott, yourself!

    1. Good idea...but I'm a 'fur piece away' as the old timers say. Thanks, my friend.
