Big gun, Short lived. Taurus 28 Gauge Revolver.

    On Friday night Michael Bane told me that BATFE visited the Taurus booth at SHOT Show and declared that the 28 gauge revolver was in fact a SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun), not a handgun.

    Taurus USA imports their pistols from the Taurus factory in Brazil. If they were imported the sample 28 gauge SBS and specified in the US Customs / BATFE paperwork that is was a pistol, they could be in trouble.

    I contacted the Taurus PR but I have not yet received a reply.

    UPDATE: According to Taurus PR this information is apparently not correct.
