Worth a watch. I could have predicted a couple, but was surprised by a few.

Words of wisdom from Big Chief: Flush twice, it's a long way to the Mess Hall
I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!

    Of course, you may own one or more of those 7 and be perfectly happy with your purchase.

    I got to laugh at the way he describes recoil from the DPMS...

    I cannot find fault in what he said.  Except that NuttinFancy and James Yeager are respected people.

    Don't own a single one on this list.

    Of course, a lot of his findings are purely subjective, not objective.

    If you look around you can find opposite conclusions on each of those guns.

    I don't know about that, Chief.  I've seen multiple thumbs down on the Remington.  Not familiar with the others. 
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    Didn't say all, but some. Obviously the felt recoil on the rifle was subjective.

    The Taurus revolver, well that was objective no matter how you look at it.

    Agreed Big Chief, he said something to the effect of they told me that this 308 AR is as light as a 223 version....um....then it will kicker harder. Duh.

    I'll admit that his Taurus was junk, but it is hit and miss with them and QA/QC. 10 other folks with the same revolver may have no issues at all.

    I tell folks if you get a Taurus that works and you are happy with it, it is a 'Taurus keeper' hang on to it.

    I think my take on them is well established on here, without saying much more.

    I have a Taurus PT738TCP and I love it. Duz everything perfectly and a far better gun than the Ruger LCP or Keltec P3AT. Based on my experience with it, I put a 608 on my wish list for all the same reasons Honest Outlaw had it on his. Well, it's off the list now. I can't afford a crap shoot when I buy a gun, I have to know up front I'm going to be satisfied.

    Same with my PT 709. It's the perfect size, the safety goes in the right direction and it fits like a glove with the mag extensions. Since it also takes +p, it's my go to.
