PT809 - MIA

I know it's been about 2 weeks since my last post, but I haven't been much for writing lately. I lost my dog to cancer. She had been with us for almost 7 years. She was a good dog and will be missed. I glanced out my back window today and swore I saw a white shape moving about the yard. Sometimes you wonder if they can visit. At least I'll still have her in my mind.

Well, it's March 27th and I still haven't gotten my PT809 back from Taurus. Long story short, they received my dealers FFL, but didn't enter it into the system, so they've basically been sitting and doing nothing. I actually had to ask for the "Legal" department as I was of the opinion that they had lost my weapon and were scrounging to find it. According to the "Customer Advocate" who was a very nice lady named Deidre, she had found my dealers FFL and would enter it into the system herself. This was on Wednesday of last week. I called back on Friday to ensure everything was ok and was informed that the FFL was in the system and that I should receive my gun sometime next week. We'll see. While I have no real problems with the customer service reps themselves, they've been pretty nice and for the most part, understanding about what I've been dealing with, it makes you wonder how bad things are in Miami where the repair facility is.

Just to show that I'm not a Taurus basher, I ordered and received my Taurus PT92 AFS. This handgun is a clone of the Beretta 92 used by the armed services. I picked up the gun today from my dealer. Needless to say, the gun is completely coated with grease. I'll be spending the next hour or so do a field stripping and cleaning her out. I'll most likely take her and my M&P 9mm to the range next week. Will do a range report then.
