      My only experience with Taurus was a PT92 i traded last year for a Walther. With it I ran about 1k worth of rounds through it, and never had a FTF or FTE, so I'd say that I'd trust my life to a PT92. I havent had any experience with any other taurus firearm, but the 92 did leave a good impression on me. I forgot to mention it was also an incredibly accurate weapon, proving itself to be more accurate at ranges past 25 meters than either my glock 17 or walther p99. Looking back I regret trading it.

      Would you trust your life with a Taurus ?
      Yes.


      I just picked up a new CCW gun, a Mill. Pro 9mm, and Im very happy with it so far. Ive only had it a couple weeks, but Ive already put 500 rounds through it without a single malfunction. And with the new Wilson Combat sights, its even better. Its accurate and easy to shoot, comfortable to carry, and seems to be built as well as any other gun I have/had.

      It did come with one bad magazine (wouldnt feed JHP), but Taurus is sending a new one. Kinda annoying, but its not a big deal.

      Couple of us at the range sometimes hang a tennis ball from a string on the 100yd range and shoot it with handguns. So far the Taurus PT92 has been the most accurate at that distance or any really. Funny to shoo that range with a 45cal., you can almost shoot and holster before it hits the target

      I trust mine. but no matter what you buy put hundreds and hundreds of rounds through it before you make that decision. Carry what you are comfortable with if its a taurus or a sig. Every gun is different and every manufacturer can slip out a bad one from time to time.

      No I would not trust my life with a Taurus!

      I bought a brand new PT-22 as a birthday gift for my wife. We took it out to fire it and found that the firing pin would not strike the cartridge with enough force to cause detonation about 30% of the time. We tried different brand bullets with the same result. We also had a jam.

      I returned the gun to Taurus and called a week later to check the status and was told that all repairs take 5-6 weeks. This is an outrage! Repair would be fine but this gun was defective right out of the box and should be replaced immediately.

      Obviously I will never buy another Taurus! They are junk!

      Dude, 4 post on 4 different threads, all bitching about the same gun and a couple of post, are even almost word for word.
      For one, if you chose ANY .22 mouse gun to be a reliable self/home defense weapon I would encourage you to go to something center fire, .380 and larger tend to be MUCH more reliable. No one makes a truly reliable pocket auto in .22. Once in a while you will come across one that is truly reliable but I would never stake my life on one. They are fun for plinking but that is it. I had a Pt-22 a few years ago and it was more dependable than most, I gave it to my Father-in-law and he has had it hiccup only a few times in several hundred rounds.
      No matter what maker you buy a gun from, when you send it in for warranty work, if the gun can be fixed that is what they will do unless it is beyond repair, or cheaper for them to replace it. Five to 6 weeks is more common than not for warranty repair. There are firearm makers with faster customer service, some of the best are S&W, Glock, Springfield, there are others.
      Taurus will fix your gun but you should never expect stellar reliability out of a pocket .22.

      Pt 22

      I see that you tried different brands of ammo, but did you field-strip, and clean it before shooting it. No one else seems to have asked this obvious solution. From what I've read, most .22 auto types will have some that are problematic. I was going to buy a Sig, but I've even seen problems listed with them. I'll be getting a revolver, instead.

      I have a Taurus Model 66B4, .357mag and yes, I do trust my life with this weapon. It is a robust, accurate and dependable firearm. A good value in a revolver that doesn't break the bank.

      My dad has a Ruger MK ll that I have shot on many occasions in the past. It has at least one misfire per mag. We don't bitch about it we just jack in a new shell and keep going.

      If you are gonna stake your life on a rimfire then you must not care about yourself or family. I would never buy a rimfire and expect top notch performance.

      As for the original poster of this topic I would have to agree with what some of the other people have said. If your weapon of choice has ever failed you then yes you have the right to ditch it. From what you said you barely have any experience with it. Why would you trade something you have hardly even shot. When I was looking at revolvers for hunting I kept going back to the Taurus Tracker line. Ended up getting a used Super Redhawk from somewhere else but thats beside the point. You should get out and shoot it, then decide. Never let anyone else tell you what to do but you could follow their advice to see what happens.

      Yes.

      My ccw's are an 851 in .357 and a kimber Ultra carry stainless. I trust my life to either one. Obviously the Kimber outranks the Taurus in both capacity and reload, but when I need a slightly smaller weapon for concealment purposes the 851 is my go to. I have a tracker 627 stainless I carry as my backpack/snake gun.

      NO. But you know what. I would love to have one for plinking. Anyone who carries for concealment knows TAURUS is JUNK!

      i have the pt22 in my pocket right now..i also have an berreta sub compact..
      its an excellent gun.. but for dependable service ,,the taurus has it beat as it will fire the cheap walmart 22lr.. the berreta has enuff sense to insist on a quality lr bullet.. which i recommend..,
      the cheap stuff is just dirty ammo.. in my opinion..

      Of Course....i Would!!!!

      That's bad luck for you powertec. Surely will I entrust my life on my PT92. I've tried it once on an actual encounter and it serves me well. Lucky enough for me I was not carrying my 1911.
