Maxon's Taurus Day

Saturday, Nov 15
9AM - 5PM

Just like last month folks.

Come on out to Maxon's Shooter Supply in Des Plaines, for their Taurus Day. The way it works is that we will have a Taurus rep there, showcasing the whole line of Taurus firearms. There will be a special rental setup - there is NO base cover charge, just fill out the standard range waiver, then you will be able to rent and try out any of the guns that Taurus brings out. You must use our ammunition, which is sold in small quantities (5-10 round baggies).

I don't know if I'll be working security detail for this show. Will find out tonight, and update if I do. Otherwise, I'll probably make a trip on out, Saturday morning, if anyone wishes to go.

Honestly, it's probably because Taurus isn't as high quality as Springfield Armory, who we hosted last month. I expect much higher excitement and turn out on December 13th, when we host Heckler & Koch.

Come out and do it at Maxon's this weekend. They'll take your photo and everything.

I suggest you do it sooner than later. Along with skyrocketing gun sales, Maxon's is also seeing a HUGE INCREASE in FOID applications, simply in the last 3 weeks alone. This means the state will be backed up in processing them.

Hmmm.... might make the trip. I'm been considering picking up a P22 as well.

Namaste
