You could try a Taurus PT92...looks and feels like a Beretta and priced like a Ruger. In some ways better than the Beretta, because you can carry it cocked and locked like a 1911, or decock it like a Beretta and shoot the first round D/A. Had a stainless one once and should have kept it. It was a very reliable gun.quote:Originally posted by EddieF
A good looking weapon fer sure. Maybe I should stick with Bourne's less expensive lethal defense weapons, like rolled up magazines, Bic pens, etc....
I didn't get to see the show, but I read an article in some gun rag a while back. The author took the tour and came back very impressed. I do own a PT1911 and PT745. I've had great luck with the 1911...not so good with the 745. I've got some slide stop issues with it and think I'm going to have to send it back to Taurus. The only other Taurus I owned was that PT92. It was excellent. People that I know say that Taurus is kind of hit and miss - you either get a great one or a lemon. I guess there is a little truth to that with any gun maker (less with Ruger and than most). I agree with you on the Judge...pretty cool looking revolver.quote:Originally posted by EddieF
Thanks. Hey speaking of Taurus, did you happen to see that show the other day, maybe American Rifleman, where they toured the Taurus factory? Pretty interesting, they explained that metal injected mold process which was pretty cool, and spent some time on the Judge, which was VERY cool. I don't own any Taurus guns but the company came off well in that show.
