    I assume in the context of being on this board and being a gun, you mean as a self defense firearm. I sure wouldn't trust any of my Taurus guns to hold up the landing gear in a 747 I was flying in.

    Anyhoo, I'd use any of them in a pinch, but if I had a choice in the moment, I'd take the PT24/7G2C .45 or the PT638Pro. I think either is accurate enough in self defense range and they have enough capacity to miss a few times and still have rounds to use.

    The G2? Yes, I do. No problem. My three pistols have been absolutely reliable over thousands of rounds.

    Yes. I have a dozen or so Taurus revolvers in Calibre .38 thru .44.

    I maintain all of my pistols, rifles and shotguns. Have fixed a few, but never had to send to factory or got a bad one.

    My .38/.357 revolvers are around the house in cubbies and false walls. I carry either an M9 or Colt MK IV in .45 when I'm out and about.

    Again, "Yes," I would trust my family's life and mine to the Taurus pistols I have.

    Picking up my G2S 9mm and Rossi .22 Rifle on June 1st. Range report to follow soon after on both.

    If you had asked this about two years ago, my answer would have been yes. But since then, one of my two model 85 revolvers spent 12 (yes, 12) weeks in Miami being repaired, and now I question both revolvers. So now, they sit in the back of the gun safe, and have been replaced by other revolvers and semi automatics wearing a different name. Therefore, mine are now range toys, if that anymore.

    When my daughter moved to a big city for college I bought her a 605. If it's good enough for me to feel comfortable with her then obviously I trust it.

    I really don't care what the name is on the pistol, what it's made of, or who says what about it.

    I 'trust my life' only to what I've run and wrung. That's not just an issue with the pistol -- it's an issue with the ammunition, the mags (if applicable), the holster, the carry method, and the shooter (uh, that would be ME).

    I've seen high-dollar pistols failing in matches where the 'you gonna shoot THAT?' pistols ran like fine-tuned sewing machines, and watched guns hang up in high-tech holsters while the guy drawing out of an Uncle Mike's had no problems making a 1 second buzzer to shot draw.

    Fun range toy or family protector? Why 'OR'? Why not both?

    But to directly answer the question . . .

    Yes. Why would I carry it otherwise?

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    The name on it doesn't matter, reliability is determined by the number of moving parts. Regardless of how "well built" anything might be perceived to be, each moving part is a point of failure and in mechanics, the guy with the most points loses.

    I carried my PT709 every day for about 7 years. It does have a fairly high round count and been 100% reliable. I did recently add a 2nd carry option but the 709 still sees plenty of carry.

    Yes.

    In a word, Yes. Any firearm that I carry I trust with my life. I've been carrying my PT709 for years. I also carry my PT1911. If I can't trust them, why would I carry them or any firearm I can't trust?
