Thread: Seeking Opinions on Taurus and SCCY

  1. Thank you, everyone, for all the advice. We rented all the guns we were considering and some that we weren't and our results were surprising. The recoil of the tiny 380s were unacceptable to my wife, so the TCP was out, and my top ten list flipped almost exactly. The SCCY ranked towards the bottom of the firing experience, worsted only by the Taurus Millennium G2. The top two, after firing, were the Kahr CW9 and the Kahr CM9. My wife's top two were the Ruger LC380 and the Kahr CW380. I hadn't read up much on the Kahr's, because I thought they were too expensive. After a great deal of more research into all the guns on our list, we decided to go with the CW9 for me, and the CT380 for her.

    I ordered them from Tombstone Tactical, with a spare mag for the .380, for just over $650 for both. They arrived Thursday and will be going to the range on Monday.

    Well, at least you took the advice of renting guns. One reason why I am keeping my Taurus TCP is to let other people shoot with it at the range.

    Now, buy some bulk training ammo online, take a training class and practice regularly. Also, buy bulk self defense ammo and run it through your guns to check if it works.

    Two initial observations

    1. Some things you can only learn from experience.

    2. There's no point in getting into a discussion with someone who has already made up their mind.

    Having said that, my early attempts at buying firearms where characterized by attempts to scrimp and save money that always ended up costing more money when I had to replace inferior equipment with good quality products.

    I don't go out of my way to buy top end firearms because they just don't appeal to me and I'd hate to watch a 3000$ Nighthawk take a one way trip into the evidence locker.

    I don't buy low end because even though they're reliable over the short run they don't last and you end up buying another one anyway. A Highpoint will go bang every time you pull the trigger for about 5000 rounds. I have S&Ws that get that many in a year.

    When I buy a new gun(I own less than 10) I figure at least 6 magazines, a quality holster and 1000 rounds into my start up costs. I hit the range once or twice a month and do a refresher course at least twice a year.

    If I was pressed to name a specific gun I'd say hit the gun show and pick up a used Glock 19 for around 300 bucks and roll

  5. My Taurus TCP has been back to the factory 2 times and I am getting ready to send it back for the 3rd and last time. I bought it about 5 years ago and it probably has less than 150 rounds through it. There have been and still are issues with feeding, ejecting and firing pin contacting very edge of firing cap--probably related to the feeding issue. I am sending it back with a more detailed explanation along with a shell casing showing the miss hit. But, I am replacing it with a Beretta PICO or possibly a Ruger LCP. I can't recommend Taurus.

  6. I would say just do your online research. A lot has changed since this thread was created which shocks me how dead this form is but that's a whole other discussion. If you look up reviews of the new Taurus g2c you will read nothing but good reviews I actually own one and I can back up these reviews it is the best nicest shooting gun I have ever owned. The SCCY guns on the other hand your heart press to read much good about them kind of makes that decision easy
