The optimist in me wants to believe that Jessie got a preview of something from Taurus that made her believe they’re changing their stripes. Whether it’s a new gun or a new (and sincere) commitment to manufacturing quality, there must be something that made one of the major female competitors go with Taurus after years at Glock. With companies like S&W and FN actively recruiting major talent for their competition teams, something about Taurus must have been attractive to Jessie.
The pessimist in me, on the other hand, predicts that this relationship will be short lived. The other possibility is that Taurus might not actually expect its team captain to shoot a company gun. There’s a growing trend of competitive shooters using highly customized pistols where the only part actually produced by their sponsor is the frame… if even that. It’s always amusing to read that so-and-so won a match as Captain of Team Whatever, when you know that the only connection he has to Team Whatever is a logo on his jersey. But hey, that’s marketing.
The realist in me is pretty sure that the pessimist in me is right on this one.
