    FYI Users of Taurus Security Key

    I have two pistols in my carry rotation, a PT809 and a PT709. The gun I am not carrying (or by my bedside at night) is locked using the TSS.

    I have been using the system for a few months without an issue, until last week. My son and I went to Camp Perry for the weekend. I threw the 709 in my bag and carried the 809. The next day, I decided to carry the 709. When I got home, I noticed the 709 was locked. Good thing I did not need it.

    My new routine is to lock the gun and remove the mag. When I switch guns, the missing mag reminds me that it is locked.

    The keys cause more problems than they do good, unlock the locks and hide the keys!

    I used the key once just to try it and never used it again.

    Re: FYI Users of Taurus Security Key

    I'm with you. I had to try it in the Gun shop while I was going over the gun with the salesman. Decided it was was way more trouble than it was worth, Especially since I already have a lock at home that's easy...

    I have never locked one of my Tauras's with the key. I have my own locks, also have no children at home. I also don't understand locking the gun in your knightstand. It seems it would be hard to get in service if the need arose in the middle of the knight.

    Taurus likely puts the security lock on their handguns to keep all the "politically correct" folks off their backs. If they didn't have locks on their handguns, places like California would likely ban the sale of them.

    Way back when I had my 357 snubbie, I religiously used the key lock, UNTIL it stripped. I had the 2nd key, of course, but never used the 2nd key again. Afraid I'd strip that one out while the gun was locked! Don't use it on my 709, now.

    I never used the key locks that came with my Ruger and Taurus pistols and I don't plan to.

    Re: FYI Users of Taurus Security Key

    You know, I THINK the keys for my two Taurus guns are around here sumwheres. When I opened the case of each when I got home, took the Keys & tossed them in a drawer. No kids here and I prefer to use the PRIMARY Safety that comes with any firearm. The one between my ears!

    The TSS is one of the most useless additions to a self-defence firearm. If I need to fire one of my guns, I need to fire it RIGHT NOW, not after finding the key and unlocking it.
