    When did you have the firs contact with the Taurus brand

    I did not even know that a Taurus exist. I first thought Taurus is a mid size Ford Sedan.

    My daughter in law came in 2007 and gave me a Taurus PT 111 Pro 9X19 as a present. I didn't have a single glow what a Taurus is and where it comes from. That gun did grow on me and today I don't want to miss that gun anymore.
    Sure I have more guns and many of them are very good guns that I don't want to miss.
    But the PT 111 Pro gun become a part of my necessity guns like my Dachshund in the house is always around me.
    I feel very comfortable with that gun. he only upgrade that I made to that gun is the William Sights becaus I hatet actually the Hini that came with it.

    It is reliable, compact, accurate and eats up whatever I feed her as long it is 9X19 ammo.

    So how does your Dachshund feel about being compared to a Taurus?

    REAL contact when bought a blued 85. It was a pretty good gun. Finish was top rate and it ran well. Traded up to the 609(?), same gun but 357mag. It too was pretty damn good for the price. It got the job done w/o complaint.

    I will ask and let U know. But I'll think as long as he can ride in the car, sleep on the couch the dog will be fine.

    When was that Spike? 1893?

    I bought a new, pre-decocker PT92AF in the early 90's (I think that's right but could have been the late 80's). Wish I still had it. Beautiful and a very good shooter. Looked like this..

    Huummmm
    I thought there are more Taurus people here.
    But may be they are scared? But OK I understand. Outing as someone that actually owns a Taurus and is satisfied with it in a gun forum is not so easy.

    I've known about Taurus since early 80's. Several friends at work were getting the x -Beretta 92's and thought highly of them.

    The Millennium series looks nice.

    I opted to get a real Beretta instead of a Brazilian copy.

    I considered a revolver but could not find a .22 mag in the local shops. I did find a Rossi M515. I believe they both copied S&W.

    I had the same problem. I couldn't decide and therefore I have both. The Beretta 92 and the Taurus 92. Both work just great.

    My TCP .380 is the 1st Taurus I've owned. I compared it to the LCP and Kel-tec. I bought it because it had a smoother trigger and a slide lock. I've put appr. 300 rounds of several different brands through it without issues. I'll keep it.
