    Catastrophic failure with a Beretta 92F Need some info. on the 92F

    The F model has LONG been discontinued. Replaced by the FS. The "F" model hasn't been made since the mid 1980s. What does this honestly have to do with anything.

    I already stated above that: "Guns are like cars - there will always be lemons. I can find catastrophic failure threads on every brand - Glocks, S&W's, Berettas, Rugers, etc."

    I just found your thread about your new Taurus elsewhere in the forum...

    In your own thread, I gathered the following info... Let's see - you own a Raven, a Hi Point and now used Taurus. You have owned that used Taurus less than a week, and have somewhere around 1 box of ammo through it. In that time, you've sought out this thread...

    You've replied and insulted all of us that do not really like Taurus, and we have some reasoning and facts to stand behind. You admit to not being that knowledgeable about guns in your other thread. Some of us have been gun buying and shooting for years. Hell, I've been in non stop gun buying mode since 1993. Yet, you - the guy with the Raven, the Hi Point, and the 1 week old Taurus, comes to tell us all how full of it we are on a thread you didn't even start...

    Now, a nice person would have said - "I just bought a Taurus, and so far, it works great. I hope to prove you guys wrong about the quality - it was all I could afford." But you didn't do that. In fact, you are nasty to no one in particular on your own thread you started yourself... Seems like you just want to argue, any place and anywhere. You have gone digging on this site - to argue with people who do not have a good opinion of taurus - when you have only owned a used one for less than a week....

    And, you now call me a gun snob? Yes, I am probably a gun snob to someone who has a Raven, Taurus and hi point... And, I will probably always be one to that person.

    You like your Taurus. Great. I am happy for you. But, (on your own thread) you even state that you don't know if you paid too much for it...

    Don't have much money? Fine, I get it... You probably could have saved and bought a used Glock, S&W, used Beretta, or used anything that is of a higher tier than Taurus. But, you didn't. And, you have what you have. Make the best of it. I hope your gun continues to work.

    But now you are insulting all of us who do not agree with you - that Taurus is the most fantastic thing around. I would invite any future members who read this thread to go follow up on your own thread you started.

    Taurus owners want to dispute my suggestion that they look elsewhere - go ahead. But a guy who has owned a used Taurus for less than a week (and who is rather nasty about the whole thing) really has nothing much to contribute here....

    Trolls pop up from time to time....they seek knowledge about a firearm that apparently no one else owns....then, when they don't like what they hear, they proceed to bash everyone, about everything,,,they make NO contributions, and have no knowledge or insight.........kind of like a liberal...you make talking points, you give them facts, and they just want to call you a racist, or a hater....to divert from the real subject, which is, they really have nothing to say....they tell you that they have a Raven, a Highpoint and a Taurus, then complain that they don't have alot of funds...even though, if they would have used the cash for the 3, and just bought one GOOD firearm, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    Regarding the first part, don't feed them.

    Regarding the 2nd part, AMEN!

    I have 3 Taurus guns: PT1911, PT92, PT111 G2. I have put thousands of rounds through each of them and I can say out of my own experience that those guns did not have any malfunction, they are very accurate, they manage recoil very well, 100% reliable, very easy to shoot. I also shoot Beretas, S&W and Glocks, but I have had several malfunctions with those brands.

    I just bought a Sig P250 and this is my all time favorite hand gun EVER. Out of the box it was surprisingly accurate, and after hundreds of rounds going through it not one issue.

    OK. So please post your, um, review on the SIG board.

    Brazilian Police Recall 98,000 Taurus 24/7 DS Pistols

    The So Paulo State Military Police (PMSP), a gendarmerie tasked with the state’s non-investigative police work, have recalled all of the 98,000 (no, not a typo) .40 S&W Taurus 24/7 DS pistols issued to their personnel after discovering that some of them could be discharged without the trigger being pulled.

    I just don't understand why the heck Taurus has such a problem with this. Good Lord, you would think their management team would be all over the quality issues asap, before it puts them out of business!

    Hi everyone!
    Here in Portugal Taurus Handguns are very common. Because of the price maybe.
    I used to own a Beretta 81fs and a taurus PT 909b.
    The taurus was a nice gun (about 800 rds and no ftf or fte), but to bulky to carry, while the beretta had a weak caliber (32ACP).
    Ive sold both guns and own actually G19 (Gen3) and Taurus PT 709 slim.
    I just have to say that after almost 400 rds no malfunction at all. Just a little bit snappy but na enjoyment to carry.
    You can almost forget that you are carrying.
    I must also refer to the quality. The 909 was from the late 90s and had a poor finish/coating and after sometime also shows some rust spots. You can notice that the 709 have an outstanding quality.
    Sorry for my poor english, forgive the mistakes...
