Aren't Rossi and Taurus one in the same now?

Taurus owns them, but they are still separate brands

I have a Kimber Pro was handed down to me, You have, to grip it like a manly man or it will tend to jam. It could have been the ammo I am not knocking the gun too much. I would not buy anouther one, they are too expensive, I see it as a novelty collector. I just bought a Beretta 92a1, I love it, I love it, I love it. I have to get use to it because, it is a big gun, and I have normal size hands so I am still getting use to the grip of it. I was told to get some houge grips with finger groves but then I would think it would make it even harder for me to grip with a larger grip on it. I was looking at the houge straight grip might jump on that they are cheap. My next gun either looking for a 4" glock or a baby beretta 22Lr any one have one for sale?!

I'll confess I voted glock also as I just don't like plastic guns.
Yes I have fired several models and just dont like them.

Voted Diamondback.  I had a DB9 blow up in my hand.  When I shipped it to them for repair (they had to replace everything but the slide) they didn't even have the decency to send a latter of apology or offer to pay my shipping costs.  I've heard of people putting 500 rounds or more through the DB9, but I wouldn't trust one.

i voted for glock - not because i think its a bad gun - but they dont fit my hand, i've had two and just didnt like them - it's not a knock on the gun itself - just not a fit for me

Hi-Point: They work, but are just plain ugly and not comfortable to me
Glock: I had a 19 and a 26 and just never warmed up to either
Diamond Back: I shot a DB9 twice. I mean two shots and I was done

By the way, Diamondback is now owned by Taurus.

Well they did say they were going to make moves to improve their quality...sad that they consider this a move up.

I heard that Taurus just bought, or is about to buy, Bushmaster.
