Can't believe I'm posting this. It's been 30 years since I've purchased a Taurus firearm. Won about four different ones in raffles or at matches since then, but all were clunkers and got sold.

I only ever saw one local club do power factoring at their matches, and not every month at that. Everybody likes to shoot, hardly anyone likes to WORK matches.
