taurus makes a fine gun. especially there raging bulls. the 480 is a bad boy round. is there a reason you dont have a scope on it? i love hunting with a pistol. i may post mine on here if you dont mind or make a new thread on people who hunt with a pistol just to see what kind of pistols are out there to hunt with.

Thats why there are only three holes in the paper plate....I saw all I needed too....and at 32.50 for 20 bullets....I'll save the rest for hunting......they go up to43.00 for twenty....but I didn't get it for target shooting....just for hunting now.

I just got it a few weeks ago and haven't found a scope rail for it yet....but I'm sure it will have one soon.I already have a nice scope for it.

When you get ready for your scope, let me know if I can get you pricing on anything.
