    Angry Taurus Rebate Catch22

    Trying to comply with the Taurus rebate requirements (original receipt and original label from gun case), but am running into an issue with removing the white label from the gun case. The adhesive used is way too good. I can't get the label off without making it illegible.
    Going to call Taurus tomorrow and try to come to a resolution.
    Anyone have any Ideas on how to get it off the case and still be readable?

    I got a feeling its attached to a plastic gun case and you just can't cut it out.
    That just plain sucks....
    Sorry, no ideas for you.

    Try heating it up and getting it good and hot with a hair blow dryer and then peeling it real slow at the same time you're applying the heat. That should work.

    Do you have a scanner? Scan and print, or copy. They should accept that.

    Just for kicks, I went in and tried to peel off the label from both of my Taurus cases, and didn't have any trouble whatsoever doing it. I just worked it slowly and they came right up.

    Good luck, take your time.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Yes, we love Taurus...

    Thanks, all! Merry Christmas!
    Would scan/copy it, but they want the original label. The labe also curves over the bottom of the case.
    Heat is an idea. Yesterday while getting a new snow shovel I picked up some Goo Gone Sticker Lifter. Even comes with a little tool for lifting the stickers.
    I'll let you know how it goes.
    For now, I will be enjoying this White Christmas we're having!

    Use a hair dryer set to high heat blowing directly onto the sticker at an angle.
    Peel off the sticker slowly using even pull to lift away (not pull up) from the case.
