    TAURUS Introduces the New CURVE




    Taurus® Introduces the New CURVE™
    Reshaping Personal Carry with The Gun You Wear™

    FOR RELEASE 11-18-2014

    (Miami, FL) – Taurus®, the global leader in revolver manufacturing, is redefining the handgun category with its newest introduction. The new, patented CURVE is a body-contoured .380 ACP that changes everything about concealed carry - so comfortable it’s easy to wear - everyday.

    Taurus tackled the challenge of designing a concealed carry handgun that is “print-free” as well as comfortable in any position on the body. Building a firearm with a curved grip frame was not an easy task. About the size of today’s smart phones, this little USA manufactured double-action only, semi-auto pistol packs 6+1 rounds in a highly concealable 5.18-inch package. Weighing in at 10.2 ounces, the CURVE combines innovation with functionality for close-quarter, personal security confidence when wearing this pistol. This curved polymer pistol has a carbon steel slide and a stainless steel barrel for increased reliability.

    Taurus takes safety seriously and incorporated a loaded chamber indicator as well as integrated the Taurus Security System® for long term locking storage. Taurus also provides a trigger protector that is fast and easy to deploy with a built-in lanyard for use when using the holster-free belt clip.

    Another industry-first, an integrated LaserLyte® LED light/laser combo system built within the frame makes for efficient target acquisition during most lighting scenarios. On the rear of the slide is the bore axis sighting system™ that is designed for instinctual point shooting at close distances. This subcompact handgun does not feature traditional sights to keep the concealed carry design smooth and snag-free. The textured grip and the low bore axis of this pistol deliver comfortable shooting and mild recoil.

    "We challenged our engineers to develop a handgun that was comfortable to wear. We wanted it to be as comfortable as wearing a watch every day," commented Sarah Perry, Director of Marketing. "We wanted a concealed carry firearm that was designed for wearing against the contours of your body. The engineers eagerly accepted the challenge and three years later and after much testing, we are beginning production of the Curve," continued Perry.

    Wearing the CURVE everyday provides the peace of mind needed for protecting yourself and your family in these uncertain times. Have the CURVE on your side - it’s the gun you wear!

    Interesting. I hope that the integrated side belt clip is ambidextrous or else this may dissuade southpaws from wanting it.

    *Edit* Nevermind, just saw a pic of it from the front and rear. The curve of this strictly dictates that it be carried on the right side of the body only. Pffft on Taurus for that.

    I'd be much more open to acquire the "Curve" than the "View." Looking forward to holding on in my grubby hands.

    Wonder how many of it's parts are interchangeable
    with other models?

    Or is this another, engineered from the ground up, item
    with no compatibility with anything else?

    All the Best,

    probably none....Not until they come out with the left hand modular frame, anyways.

    I'd love to shoot one. Never thought I'd consider owning a .380.

    Maybe it's just me, but that thing is butt ugly.

    Looks like a plastic gun that spent too much time in the attic and slowly bent over the years.
