  1. What do these people do that their lives don’t require actual useful every day items? Phone, wallet, keys, chapstick, multi tool, etc.

    • Hey now, that PT 111 G2 has a trigger safety and a manual safety. The P320 has neither.

      Just as long as his RSA doesn’t eat itself after the first shot, it should be okay for a defensive gun use.

      Funny thing is Taurus is out of replacement RSAs. If yours breaks and you want your gun up and running, you have to buy an aftermarket one.

    • Not much one can say about Taurus that hasn’t been repeated ad nauseum here and elsewhere.
      The comments always seem to follow the same pattern: “The Taurus PTWhatever I bought was a piece of sh!t”. Followed by several replies of “funny, I have the same one and it works just fine”.
      What this indicates to me is not that Taurus can’t make a decent gun – clearly they can (I’ve owned two of their revolvers), but it does mean their quality control needs work to stop that one-in-twenty lemon from slipping out the door and making the other nineteen look bad.

  2. I carry a PT111 because I love the features (external safety, 2nd strike capability), the the way it fits my hand, and the size (it is a double stack with 12 + 1 capacity, but is barely wider than most single stacks and conceals very easily). While I have never had a problem with the gun after 500 + rounds, I would instantly buy a different gun from a more respected manufacturer if it had the same specs. It is a shame that Taurus’ past quality control issues have put a small amount of doubt in the back of my mind about an otherwise perfect CC pistol.

    • If you had doubt why did you buy it? I carry a PT111 everyday. I don’t have doubts about it or I wouldn’t carry it. If you chose to not carry any gun that someone bitched about having a problem with, you wouldn’t have any left to carry. Use your own experience and don’t pay attention to whiners.

  3. Oh s**t, that’s me! It’s a grip not a mini grip And I have 2 taurus pistols, this and a 1911, love them both, but I’m just an uncouth slob, not a super awesome gun guru. And I do carry a wallet, and a gshock watch. Never understood why people carry chapstick year round tho. How exactly are your lips getting chapped in the summer??
