      Which would you buy out of these options

      Taurus 24/7 G2. $417
      Taurus PT809. $395
      EAA SAR B6P. $349

      All 9mm. All are only 9mm available locally. There is also a compact version of the G2 not sure if I need that. All have 17 round mags. Taurus does have lifetime warranty, but SAR is Turkish and they have been doing this a long time and have never read a complaint.

      Here is what gun is to be used for. Range gun regularly. Home defense behind my Saiga 12 ga. Wife will be shooting, one reason for 9mm. I will carry occasionally. Not regularly so not sure if I want compact, plus I have larger hands. What are your thoughts on these weapons? A rail is a must for my Surefire x300 ultra.

      EAA. I have a friend with a 10mm EAA and it shoots great! It's been 100% reliable and accurate (and powerful!).

      Id go with the 24/7 out of those. I was looking at one but went with a ruger sr40 instead. Mostly because ruger> taurus. They also have the sr9.

      Okay.....so if someone was holding a gun to my head, and told me I have to make a decision, it would be the EAA.

      Why so much hate for them? What's so bad about Taurus? Any advice on a gun in sub 450$ range? And no I'm not saving a little extra. 450 is max budget, it's not how much I have saved... It's the max I want to spend. Won't go over that

      Use the search thread, and you will read comments on why people do not like Taurus.

      I've owned a Taurus revolver once. It wasn't all that bad, as I sent it back to the company for some trigger work and to have the barrel ported.

      But, when it comes to their semi-autos, I steer clear of them. I've shot enough of them to form an opinion and it's not good. That, and I know people who have had many problems / issues with the autos.

      I guess a Taurus would be a good range or plinking gun, but I would never use one for self-defense. Then again, I would never carry a Ruger either as a self-defense gun.

      When it comes to carry guns, if $$ is an issue, I'd just wait until I saved up enough to buy what I want, or maybe take on a 2nd job for a month or so and have the $$'s to spend.

      I have fired a magazine through an EAA, and it was fine.

      I have yet to find a Taurus that I would buy.

      I have 3 Taurus revolvers, 2 .22s and 1 .38spl never any problems. These guns are shot often. Now, the rest of the story, I had 2 of their autos only because I didn't learn the first time.

      I do like the Ruger MKII's and the 10/22's. Very good value for the money, and both have been proven for years.

      When it comes to Taurus, I just don't have any use for them. I did buy a NIB Taurus .22LR revolver for my grand-son when he turns 21. He's only 13 as of now. But, I'm seriously re-thinking that. I have plenty of time, so may end up buying him a S&W 63 or something similar. That Taurus revolver has a terrible trigger pull. It's so bad, that even pulling the hammer back is a struggle.

      I think Taurus has a place in the firearms industry, but it's not one that should be carried on your person. For hunting, plinking or target practice, yeah okay.

      Rather than a Walther, I'd go with a Beretta model 84 (13 rd.) or model 85 (single stack, 7 or 8 rds. I think).

      I have two Beretta model 84BB's. Beautiful guns with real bluing on them. 13 rds. and smooth walnut grips.

      Friends don't let friends buy Taurus! The EAA is an okay buy, I've shot it once at the range, I do not think I'd buy any of your choices unless they were guns at wherever you're buying from.
