In September last year the São Paulo State Military Police (PMSP) recalled 96,000 Taurus 24/7 DS pistols because a number of them were able to be be discharged without pulling the trigger. We published a short clip showing a faulty police pistol being discharged but yesterday a reader emailed us a link to the full clip showing an unidentified person firing the 24/7 simply by flicking his wrist. Its scary stuff.
Please note, this blog post refers to Taurus (Brazil) not Taurus USA.
Thanks to Bryan for the tip.
