    Ouch! Hopefully she recovers fully.

    When I saw this thread I was ready to point the finger at the ammo but after seeing pictures of the gun it looks more like the a faulty slide.

    Often times, however, the cheapest you can buy and the very best you can afford are one and the same. Just a fact. I hate to play devil's advocate and call for certain brands of firearms to be banned, because that would play into the antis' hands, but in this particular case, a ban, or at least Consumer Product Safety Commission guidelines, may actually be reasonably warranted.

  4. I saw pictures and read the story of another gentleman who got hit with part of the slide close to his eye with the same firearm. The slide just broke into two pieces. Very similar to the issue that this woman had. It is clear that this was a cheap piece of junk and is substantiated by the fact that this company has been out of business for years now.

    She is posting on several other forums N she said that the gun was not even hers, N the ammo was off the shelf, n that several others had shot the gun first so she asked if she could, N on the second round is when it came apart.

    Not sure what that bit of information contributes to the story, but in either event, the gun is still a POS. She's lucky to be alive.

    She basically posted it to answer those who asked if might have been a reload that caused the gun to fail, N I believe the rest to sort of justify that she did not own the cheap POS gun so she has better taste than that. N she is indeed very lucky if the slide had hit her in the eye!!!! :suicide:

    You get what you pay for. I feel bad for her. I am glad she is still pro gun and will continue to shoot. I hope this does not happen anywhere else and other people who own this firearm decided to maybe put it aside and get something of better quality.

  10. Gun blow up

    When I was looking for my off-duty piece, I saw a Talon in the gun store, and told the clerk it looked like hte nickel plating was put on with a trowel, He brought it out and worked the slide, and it sounded like there was about a pound of gravel in the action, He said that as a weapon, it makes an excellent boat anchor. I bought the best I could afford and have been very happy with it. When my better half had her CCW permit, she carried a nice little Rossi 5-shot .38 spl, in stainless steel with Pachmayr grips, sweet little piece.

    GIS for Talon T-200 shows a few pictures of the "gun", and also another person that got hit by pieces of it. That's never a good sign.
