    Taurus guns I used to have

    I still have many Taurus firearms in my collection... However, I choose to buy, sell and trade firearms often... so I can enjoy the experience of owning and shooting many, many different brands, models and calibers

    (I'm not wealthy enough to only buy guns and never sell or trade)

    Here's my list, in no particular order, of Taurus guns I "used to have".... What's your list look like?

    Like all guns I've ever owned... Each has a story and I remember them well

    Curve
    TCP738
    Spectrum
    PT22
    PT111
    PT709
    PT845
    PT92 AFS
    Model 82
    Model 85
    Model 94

    There are only 2 ex-guns that I no longer have - PT24/7G2C in .40 S&W and .45 ACP. I still own all other guns that I have purchased. Both of the others were trade-ins for other pistols in the same caliber - traded the .45 ACP for a Para Ordinance p10-45 and the .40S&W for a Beretta px4 Storm sub-compact in .40 S&W.

    That brought me down to only 4 Tauri currently but I'm starting to eyeball the 1911's in commander and officer formats...

    All these went in a single multi-gun trade:

    92AF


    Not a bad gun but just didn't do it for me. I feel the same way about the Beretta. Must be the ergonomics. Bought at Academy on a Black Friday Deal.

    PT738

    Should have kept it. But not hard to replace.

    .380 Revolver

    Trigger pull too heavy and I didn't care for the DAO. Didn't think it was worth the effort to modify.

    I traded all these along with a Colt Official Police in one trade. I didn't have a whole bunch of money in any of them. The OP was a partial re-blue. Nice gun, looked good and shot well but it had fixed sights and I have multiple .357/.38's that I prefer. Plus Colts are maybe not the best choice for heavy use these days since service is a problem.

    I traded those for two guns, both new. A Springfield Stainless Loaded Target 1911 in 9mm and an SP101 in .22LR. Did not care for the SP101 at all. It's gone too. Still have the 1911. I generally trade because I'm looking for "that gun". Something that shoots well for me. I acquire, I shoot. If it works for me it stays. If not it's gone. I suppose I might keep one if it had collector value and I got it on the cheap.

    I usually have a couple on hand I'd be willing to part with. I see no reason to have a big collection of mediocre shooting guns.

    Oh, I forgot my PT609 which I loved and I miss but it fell to the "non-recall settlement" and was replaced with a PT809, which I don't like as much as the PT609. I still have the 809.

    There's maybe one Taurus I would like to try out at the moment. Maybe. But other than that I don't see anything I want in their catalog.

    I traded a PT92AF and a PT 111 older second gen. To help fund a purchase for another firearm. Wish I had kept the PT 111.

    Don't have any any more.
    Two was enough for me.

    I've always looked at my guns as tools to fill a need, a niche. If I have all my niches are filled, I need no more. I have some multiple guns for a given niche, though. Just sometimes see one in a gun shop, at a gun show, or something that I cannot resist. Don't hit many gun shows anymore, though.

    What Tauri I have is in my sig line. I've rarely sold a firearm, though I have traded a few that I didn't care much for, but had value to others, like a certain Ruger Security Six. I never sold or traded a Taurus, though an Interarms Rossi 972 was traded with money for a Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt I really wanted and still own.

    I still have all my Tauri. In fact, only gun I ever traded was a FN 40S. Did not care for the tipped pyramids they used for grip stippling. Don’t suppose I can part with my PT738 (TCP) as my name initials are engraved on the frame. Well, could give it to my dad who has same initials but he has an armory of 380ACP himself.

    I used to a 24/7 pro in 9 mm and a Pt 111-pro. Both of those went back to Taurus with the law suit. The 2 G 2c's that I got back from Taurus were traded in for a S & W shield 2.0.

    The only Taurus guns I used to have are ones I gifted to family members. Every one that has come into my possession has been a keeper, and staying in the family counts as kept.

    I've gifted several firearms to family members too...

    One Taurus (to my grown son) was the first handgun I ever owned

    He still shoots it
