    I recently bought a `06 Taco TRD Off Road.
    I know nothing about it. The Clymer Manual has yet to be published.

    I have two others.
    This is kinda like a .45 v a 9 MM.
    I do not expect the terminal work of a .45 in a 9 MM.
    They are more handy.

    The Taco is not a 3/4 and I am not going to try to make it one.
    Other than that; I know little about them. I am here to learn.
    Lock, stock and barrel. To borrow another saying.
    I did not mean to be obscure.
    This is a personal ride that enjoys the tax advantage of being a farm truck.

    I am pleased to hear that. We use way too much jargon.
    Say you need three loads of sand.
    The Taco can`t do that.
    9 MM terminal ballistics are better than ever. They do not address cross sectional factors.
    As Keith said big bullets make big holes and let out lots of blood.
    I like the Taco but it is not a .45.
    It is a medium.
    Defined as less than .40 to the gunmen out there.

    I'm definately a gunman, but i dont think i would compare the taco to a 9mm. The 9mm is a truely weak round with very little stoping power. Like you said, on paper it looks good as far as velocity, but when it comes down to it it just doesnt have the stoping power of a .40, .44 or .45. I agree the taco is not a .45 but its not a 9mm either

    I have never met a gunman that I did not like. OK, there things that are just unacceptable. But you stood right up like a man. Mil. or LEO, no matter. Oh, I may kill him but he still has that quality.
    We all know who we are. And there is a fraternity.
    I have a .45 Super and a 10 MM that you would like to shoot.
    With your permission. I will move this to what do we use these for?
