I understand why they did it, but...

...I'm still saddened by its implications.

As predicted, the 856 Executive Grade was just the harbinger of a fuller lineup to come, and Taurus has released the second model in its Executive Grade portfolio. Did they hire some pistolsmiths to tune up an upmarket PT1911? Did the slick Tracker 627 get a corner office and a key to the executive washroom?

I mean, from a pure economic standpoint, a Taurus Judge Executive Grade makes all kinds of sense. Nobody ever went broke underestimating the cluefulness of the American gun-buying public and Taurus sells every Judge they make. I'm sure the Executive Grade version will be no exception to that sales track record. 

But...well... *heavy sigh*
