Taurus Semi Auto Revolver in .380 ACP…. HUH? (Update: It exists! sort of..)

This one I found in the Bass Pro Shop flyer that arrived in the mail.
As stupid as it sounds, I checked the Taurus USA website for the Taurus 380 Semi Auto revolver for lefties (Hammerless) and I did not find this wee particular model anywhere. I know, but this is the company that came up with The Judge, right? Anything is possible but more likely somebody in the Bass Pro Shop Marketing division had way too much fun with Photoshop and a pic of a Taurus 856.

I am saving this flyer…. It may become a collector’s item 🙂

UPDATE: Well, there is a .380 ACP revolver just not in semi auto but DAO. The 380IBULB found in the Taurus Catalog.

The Taurus Mini Revolver in .380 ACP delivers Taurus’ exclusive 5-shot cylinder, soft rubber grip and low profile sights. Its small size and lightweight frame makes it a perfect choice for law enforcement professionals or for concealed carry.

The question remaining is… why?

  1. That is the model 380IBULB

    From the Taurus 2012 catalog page 20:

  2. For $50 less, I got my LCP with 7 rounds of .380 (6+1). I know the economy isn’t great right now, but that much for a new Taurus?

  4. Weer’d, you think the .380 is just a bunch of their 9mm’s that they didn’t cut the chambers quite deep enough and rather than do them over…
