      Requesting Advice for Possible Purchase...

      Hi all,

      I'm having a heck of a time deciding what gun to purchase - the Sig 229 was my top choice but I'm hoping to maybe find a suitable alternative at a more reasonable price, and my search has led me to Taurus. I've considered Springfield, Walther, and others, but I've decided I like the look and prices of some Taurus models, and was hoping I could get some advice.

      I want a medium frame 9mm that will be used primarily for target practice, but I'd like to think it would also make a good gun for home defense. A smooth trigger pull is also important (I love the Sig 228's single action pull, for example).

      These are the models I'm most interested in:

      PT909-10
      PT909B
      24/7PLS-9B-10
      99B-17

      These are all sweet looking guns, seem to be reasonably priced, and pretty much meet my spec preferences. Of course, I can only afford one, so what do you guys think?

      Thanks in advance...

      I have not shot any of them so I'll tell you what I would do. Go to a shop or show and handle each one of them. I would buy the one that feels best to me. I have found when not able to shoot the gun I might want to do this and so far it has worked. I have turned down many deals when the gun didn't feel right to me. Even guns of the same make and model will have a different feel to it. Good luck.

      Best Baldy..

      Thanks for the advice, Baldy. I'm actually making arrangements to get down to Targetmaster in Delaware to do exactly that - over 100 guns available in their rental program!

      Finally shot some of the guns I was considering for a purchase, and have to say I don't think much of Taurus guns.

      Springfield's XD was far superior to any Taurus I fired, so I settled on the 4" service model, 9mm. Great gun!
