This is a new Rohrbaugh R9 paddle holster. Not sold any longer, and difficult to find. Original cost was $74.95 plus shipping. It is still new, & perfect…needs to be broken in. Will sell for $74.95, which includes shipping. This holster is real comfortable.

Am I alone in thinking that this thing is as ugly as homemade sin?   :o

Agreed Richard. This thing has little in the way of classic or styling.

I think IF parts of the concept stick,  companies with a real way of making a firearm look good in addition to making a firearm functional will help it morph into the future. At this point I would call it very utilitarian. 

Who knows. May just fizzle.

The genius of Taurus is that some unsuspecting perps will mistake this for a flare gun.

Am I seeing things or is the grip actually curved?

Other Guns / Re: Walther PPK: To Buy or Not To Buy?

No problem at all Norm.  Here's my thinking on the subject.

If you want a PPK, this is the one to have.  The PPK is a product of 1920's Engineering.  It is little more than a scaled down PP.  They are heavy compared to today's guns, blowback operated which is a minus, and not very accurate by today's standards.

If you want a piece of history, this is it.  If you want a shooter, there are much better guns to be had.  My friend bought a new PPK last year and it is a miserable gun in every way.

Added later:

If you really want a PPK, get one in 22lr.  Blowback 380's suck.

Excellent decision; as beautiful as they are it is a pain to disassemble and reassemble and I wouldn't buy another one.

Interesting new piece.

Never was into Taurus except for a judge once. Looks like the future of a carry pistol in the making. Mix some other companies to the mix and this could get interesting.

One cool thing is that this one is American made.

Shipped on Friday. They sent a next day air tag for UPS. EXCITED TO SEE IF WE GET 2, 100% R9's Now that I purchased the stealth from cargarittavile.

Norm  -  I would sell this one. It was made in 1966 when Walthers were real Walthers. It will hold it's value.  My friend paid $80.00 for it new, I paid $450.00 for it about 10 or 12 years ago.  Now look what they bring.  It will keep increasing in value,

On GunBroker, used "real " PPKs range anywhere from $1000 to $3000, and higher. I think that I'm going to look for a used stainless one in the $500 range, shoot it and enjoy it.
