    What about Taurus PT609 9mm

    Hi, im from Portugal, and i want to buy a Taurus PT609 9mm for defense.
    I open this new topic to get your help and to know what the members of the forum think about this pistol.
    I hope you can help me to decid between Taurus and Glock 26, but my favorit is the Taurus.
    Waiting for your opinions.

    Re: What about Taurus PT609 9mm

    Welcome to the forum!

    I do not have a PT609 9mm, but I don't think I've read of anyone on this forum having issues or problems with their 609s.

    I have a PT138 and a PT738, however, and have not had one moment's trouble with either pistol.

    Taurus makes some of the finest pistols on the market for the price, as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: What about Taurus PT609 9mm

    I just picked one up, and i'm liking it so far.
    Cleaned the heck out of it twice, and am going to try and drop a few hundred rounds down range tomorrow, so hopefully I can get a review on it written.

    Re: What about Taurus PT609 9mm

    I have both the 26 and the 609. I personally have always been a glock fan till I bought my 609 last month. It fits my hand better than my 26 and I think that helps my shooting. As far as the ammo I have not had any problems.. I shot cheap and expensive and never had one problem, but thats me..(Precision Delta, Winchester, Remington, and Blazer) I learned years ago my pistols malfunctions were mostly my fault.

    I will have to to admit that my 609 does look out of place in the vault with all the Glocks other than my wifes keltec 380 and its pink so....

    Re: What about Taurus PT609 9mm

    Everybody's recommending cheap range ammo. I have no problems with that, most of my ammo purchases are whateverscheapestatWalmarttoday - and it usually shoots pretty well. But he was talking about buying it as a personal defense firearm. So, as far as recommending defense ammo... I have had good luck with Hornady, MagTec, Remington Golden Sabre (not other Remington), and Cor-Bon. I haven't had a problem with reliability or with feeding through any gun which has been broken in with the whateverscheapestatWalmarttoday (for future reference: wcaWt) ammo.

    Because a copy is returned for postfix ++ expressions, statements such as (c++)++; won't work as expected.
