    What is the best Taurus? What is the best Ford? What is the best Church?

    OK, you are going to get all kinds of opinions. I am not brand loyal. I have Smith and Wesson, Ruger and Taurus. They all work good and I like all of them. The Taurus PT709 is my latest acquisition. Great carry gun and shoots good. These days, I think you have a good chance to get a good working gun from Taurus. Get what you like and screw public opinion.

    Just my opinion.. not like it is the truth-

    Now, this is exactly the way to go. Thank you!
    How to make threads like this as useful as possible: Just add your own opinion, and your own experience, and let the reader make his/her own choice.

    Trying to tell someone else what's best for him, just because you happen to like it, is arrogant, fatuous, and foolish.

    What do you think of the Taurus PT-1911. Last Friday, I bought one as my first gun.

    How should I take care of it, so that it will last forever! What advice can you give me.

    My gun dealer said it was a good gun and that I will never have any problems with it.

    This Saturday will be the first time I've fired any gun.

    Good choice for a pistol. As you are a novice I would hope this Saturday shooting would be with a trained instructor so that your learned firearms habits are good from the start.

    Have fun shooting.

    Althouth Taurus is a brazilian company people here don't like to use. Normally we prefer Glock or Imbel. Particulary I have a Taurus Pistol model 639 .380. Very good gun for defense, but I not reccomend If you use for the sport. The quality is not so good.

    In my opinion The Taurus don't invest so much here because the government put a lot barrier for people buy and have a gun here.

    Love my little 85Ch revolver for a pocket gun. Also have a PT-945 which is very fun to shoot and 100% reliable.

    I like their Raging Bull Series and the 44 Magnum I have is one of my best shooters with the 6.5" barrel. It even has a great trigger. I like my Smith's but this thing is built like a tank and a little tougher as well. I would stick with all steel revolvers from them and I can't tell you on their polymer pistols.

    I have a 650 (circa 1994). I absolutely love it. I installed Wolff springs and a Uncle Mikes combat grip. It goes bang every time and is very accurate at self defense distances. My wife and daughter both have model 85CH (concealed hammer) 38's. They also have been 100% reliable.

    I am extremely pleased with the PT111G2. Compact, surprisingly accurate, and a very nice trigger. Nice price too!

    I've read many good reports on their PT92 and 99 Beretta copies. I've had a 24/7 in 45acp that was a very reliable gun.
    I also had a Gaucho single action revolver that was a great gun. A guy convinced me to sell it to him. I've lost contact with him, always wondered how it would hold up over the long haul. Now they've discontinued them.

    I have a PT1911, a PT111 G2 and a PT92. After thousands of rounds in each of them I can say that they are all 100% reliable, very accurate, very ergonomic and easy to shoot, very durable. I recommend any of those.

    I have a PT 145 SS I bought new in '01. It is my EDC and I have complete faith in it. For such a short barrel, it is very accurate out to 15 yds. I load it with 10+1 rounds of 230 gr. JHP Golden Saber.

    I've owned two Taurus handguns the first was a PT-58HC, it was a 19 shot 380 ACP Great little handgun and ultra reliable. It was a design based on the Beretta 92 but was just too big for caliber. I have a Beretta 84 that's smaller and holds 13 rounds , much better carry gun than the PT-58. No complaints it was well made and went boom every time you pulled the trigger. My other Taurus is a 445 UL, a 5 shot ultra lite 44 Special snub. so far I've been very impressed with this revolver. Mild recoil for caliber and weight, good fit and finish overall just one rough spot on the finish. But rugged. I hesitated purchasing it at first but now I know my fears were for not. For its intended purpose it works.

    My son has owned a 24/7 for years and loves it. His brother has a Glock 23 and they keep a heated discussion about which is better. I recently went from a wheel .357 to the PT840C and I love it. In the short time I have owned it I have put over 400 rounds down the pipe without the first glitch. I recently saw a great deal on a PT740Slim and bought it. I have only been on the range one time with it and need more time with it, but so far I am happy with it.
    Taurus was at one time a sister company of S&W and now they own all the residules of the Baretta plant in Brazil, including plans, personel and tools. You can get a bad gun in any brand. I bought because I liked what I saw and it was in a price range that I was willing to pay. I have no regrets.

    I owned a Taurus model 85 at one time. Taurus had an offer to have it ported and a trigger job done, both for like $125.00 or so. I took advantage of it, and they did a good job.

    One thing about firearms, is that I buy brands that will appreciate in value as the years go by. Bad thing about a lot of brands, is that they will never be worth more than the day (moment) you buy them.

    Whatever amount extra that you pay to buy a quality brand, will insure that you get that money back, and then some, years later.

Incidentally I have other revolvers as well, never had a problem with any of them. Sometimes it's a matter of maintaining your guns.
    Obviously I don't have any Taurus semis, not for any other reason other than haven't found one that tickled my fancy yet!
    Just added another Taurus revolver to the mix: A Tracker 992 22lr/22mag combination. Two separate cylinders, and nine shots each, 6" barrel... works for me!!

    The wife has a PT709 that has 2-3 hundred rounds through it. Not a hint of a problem. Goes bang every time. Not nearly as accurate as my Walther PPS......
