    Taurus

    I have had a Taurus 5 shot revolver that I carry as an ankle gun, for 39 years. It still fires good. The aim is good and I depend on it.

    Yeah, well, I am old fashion, probably due to my age. I don't exactley trust the semi-auto's.
    I guess I should give them a try though, just because you can get more shots off at one time.
    What would someone recommend for an auto newbee to start with. 9 mil? I don't want a real heavy gun that will pull my pants down. Then I would have to fight off all of the ladies.

    Hey Peye,
    I personally would suggest 9mm.My taurus pt11 is light, a little thick though.But look at the bersa .380 thunder.
    Compact, very light and a good shooter too.The ammo I think is still hard to get if you plan on doing alot of
    shooting.Also the keltec P9 in 9mm,really small but have'nt read reviews yet.

    Hey Y'all: If there is one observation I have made when it comes to firearm recommendations is that there is NO firearm with a concensus opinion one way or the other. One guy raves, another uses it as a paperweight. I would make an exception for a Glock but even there, I take it with a slight grain of salt since it is clouded a bit with "religion" as they pray to the Glock god. Taurus, for the price is as good as it gets. Some have problems--others do not. Supposedly they have a lifetime warranty but that is only as good as customer service. Internet purchase is usually cheaper but having a good reliable gun shop to back up your purchase can be a blessing. Good luck. IMO, for the price, you cannot go wrong with a Taurus.

    I'm assuming you're talking about the Kel Tec PF-9. I don't believe there is a "P-9". There's the PF-9 and the P-11. I haven't heard much for reviews of these, but both myself and a friend own P-11s. We both like ours but don't use them for full time carry. It's pretty accurate, PLENTY accurate for defensive purpose, but we have learned that they both need to be very clean to perform well. After some soft holster carry and sitting around and getting a little dusty, the combination of some dust and lint caused them to perform poorly, specifically had several FTFs. When clean, tho, they've performed very well. My friend even accidentally loaded his with .380 ammo (brain-fart). Had a couple FTFs but most of the magazine was fired before I saw that he'd loaded it with the wrong ammo and made him cease fire immediately. Talk about being red in the face! He was more than a little embarassed.

    It's a toss-up between the PF-9 and the P11. Personally I like the P11 for the 10-rd capacity coming from such a small pistol. On the other hand, the PF-9 has, I think, a 7-rd capacity but has an accessory rail to accomodate a light or laser. Things to weigh.

    Lastly, I've thought for a while that a big reason for my Taurus PT140's flawless performance might be at least partly due to having kept it very clean and lubed.
    Don't do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics...

    bikerboy:

    Thanks for the info.

  9. I got a Taurus .38 It aint sleek and sexy, but it goes bang everytime the trigger is pulled. And the price is reasonable.

    I have, and have owned many, many Taurus pistols in 38, 357, 45, 9mm, 40, 38 Super, etc... Currently I have a PT1911, PT92, and PT99 in Semi Auto's and 608 Revolver. the only one I ever had problems with was the 38 super. It was made during the gun shortage we had at the beginning of the 2009 year, and quality control for this one was horrible. Other than that, I love them. I would not hesitate to buy more! I also own Smith and Wesson M&P, Beretta 92fs, Cobra Long Bore 9mm Derringer, Stoeger Cougar, Walther PP22 "Presentation pistol" from 1971 and the list goes on. But my favorite shooting pistol would have to be the PT1911 from Taurus.

Shooting without sandbags, 25 yards was a ragged hole. 50 yards opened up to 1 inch groups. At 200 yards, I was holding an 8 inch pattern. I would stake my life and reputation on a Taurus any day of the week. They have never been very particular about ammo put through them either.
    I am still laughing at this one. 8 inch groups at 200 yards. 50 yards 1" groups? 25 yards sub MOA? With an inexpensive .45 1911? Dude are you claiming to be Sergeant York? Smart bullets? I find your claims of marksmanship utterly ridiculous.
