Traded an old Colt for a new Taurus

shootershooter Senior MemberPosts: 1,186 Senior Member
I had this old Colt 22 revolver and was always amazed at how large and heavy it was for a .22 rimfire. This 6 shot revolver was every bit as heavy as my Ruger Security Six .357 magnum and my S&W 686 .357 mag. They all have 4" barrels and the 22 caliber is heavier.

A good friend of mine offered to trade me "even up" for my Colt 22 for his Taurus Model 94 revolver, a 9 shot model. This revolver weighs 35% less than my Colt and holds 50% more ammo!!! What's not to like???

He even threw in a brick of ammo. What a deal!!!!!

Here is the old Colt that only had a six round capacity.

This is my new Taurus model 94 that weighs 30% less and holds 50% more ammo! How can you not appreciate that???

There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    A Colt for a Taurus? You should have also thrown in a couple of $100 to be fair.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    You know, if this thread was real, people would be coming to hunt you down. :jester:

    Yep, to show him my extensive Taurus collection that I'd be willing to swap straight for his Colts...

    The moment I hit the thread link I realized what this was, still too late, I am getting slow in my older age!

    Sorry, but after Orchidman got us with his "New Zealand" gun ban, I didn't think it would be easy to get another April Fools Day joke in on you guys. But I had to try. :yikes:

    Good one, but don't laugh very hard because someone someplace may have made a deal like that..........:yikes:

    I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!

    Orchid man Ruined me. I won't bite on something like that again any time soon. Although I did swap my .270 Win. for a nice 7mm08 Savage yesterday. The barrel on the 7mm08 had never been shot. I said screw the breakin and went and put 60 rounds through it without cleaning. Of course I couldn't get it to group after 10 rounds but that has nothing to do with anything in the real world does it?

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    No way was I falling for this one. I will admit that if I found you really did, I would have been speechless to say the least and would not have known how to respond in and appropriate way on this forum.:jester:
