This is just my personal experience in my one little part of the world, but it is the best evidence I have available to me for forming an opinion.

    50%, or 60%, or even 85% is just not very reassuring to me, for something to bet my life on. Sure, any gun can fail, and even the very best ones have failed, but when you carry a concealed weapon, you are basically just adding another level of insurance to protect yourself and your family from unforeseen events. I like cheap rates for insurance, but I don't buy it from companies that are known for trying to skirt their obligations.

    A company that has not taken care of its reputation, for decades, simply does not appeal to me, when deciding whose product will help me protect my life. I might feel differently about an individual gun, if I put several hundred rounds through it, and it still passed inspection when field stripped. But, at present, I would rather pay a hundred dollars more for something with a better track record.

    Taurus...PT845

    Well, I just bought a Taurus PT845. I bought it used and got a great deal on it. very low round count.
    I have fired many autos, revolvers, and so on over the years. I heard all the horror stories about Taurus, but at what I paid for it, I had to take a chance. That being said, I have taken it down, very easy to do BTW, cleaned it, fired it, and I haven't fired a weapon in many years. Every round went downrange, hit the target. Very smooth action, very simple pistol. Make a long story short, at 15 yards I had a 2.5 in. group of 10 rounds consistently. Very natural feel, easy to shoot. So for me, I would feel comfortable using this as a CC pistol. The only minor issue I have is that I have been searching for Mags, and holsters for this gun and am having a hard time finding any...any ideas?

    Yes, I have 3 Taurus pistols (PT 111, PT 140 & PT 101P) and one revolver .357. I keep them clean and not one of them have never failed to respond effectively when called upon.

    Trust Your Life

    Yes I would trust my life with my Taurus.I have 4 2-PT 92, a 1911 and a 24/7 all perform very well and they all have over a thousand rounds fired through them.As with any gun I own I believe on keeping it clean.I have heard some people say watch what ammo you buy,but I haven't had any problem with any brand.I load most of mine but when and if I find any deals on ammo I buy it, especially 9mm. I have really found some good deals on 9mm.

    I have owned three new Tauruses. Two were bad right out of the box, a 709 and a PT745. Neither could get through a mag w/o a FTFeed and the PT745 dropped mags. Taurus was unable to fix them, so they were sold.

    That said, my first Taurus was a 24/7 c 45, and it has been perfect for over 600 rounds. It is in my belt carry rotation with a P220, M&P 45 and XD 45, so I guess I do trust the 24/7. However, I was more critical of the pistol, because of the two failures, and it took 500 flawless rounds before I started carrying it. I doubt that I will buy another.

    No....if you want a cheap 45 or 9mm to go to the range with then get a Taurus...my friend has a 24/7 pro 45 that seems to be ok (albeit it only has 80 rounds thru it) but every other one i've fired, besides his, has either jammed or had a fte problem...another 24/7 9mm, 1911, one of the snub 38's had a screw fall out of it as my buddy was shooting. he sold it to the range we were shooting at....regardless of what i am telling you, you have to look at track records...tauruses have been known to be cheap, one time use throw aways through out the years...if you want to buy a piece that you can trust to go boom every time you pull the trigger your'e going to have to go with a company that has proven themselves (i.e. S&W, Glock, Ruger, Sig etc) these maybe at tad more expensive but as the old cliche goes "you get what you pay for"...personally i carry a Ruger p95 9mm...look it up...this gun doesn't have failures...and yea it sits on my nightstand then goes on my hip when i leave...also the p90 45 is another "built like a tank" piece from them...look around and save a little money instead of picking up a taurus just because you can get a compact 45 for 350$...
