    Yes, I do with my 709Slim EDC. However, I will say, that I did do some trial and error before I found some ammo that would consistently get eaten (didn't like Win White Box. Also, may have been a limp wrist issue). Now, bang, every time.

    My first handgun was a stainless PT92 with wood grips that I bought 25+ yrs ago. Every day I wish I had that one back.

    Lastly, a work colleague who is a big enthusiast/reloader (purchased, by my count, 8 handguns in the last 12 months in every caliber and brand) has a G2C that his wife carries. He has experience every caliber/brand/off brand made and he put her in a Taurus. Speaks loudly to me.

    100% Yes!

    A couple of years ago, I bought a PT111, with an Alien Gear Shapeshifter IWB holster as my first EDC, after hours of research, shopping and trying one out. It fits me very well. Being new to carrying, I only had one shot at making a good purchase (pun intended). It’s gone through more than 1K rounds. 6 months later, I bought a G2C as my back up.

    I like that it’s light, easy to maintain carries plenty of rounds in a single mag, has a stiffer trigger and very reasonably priced.

    I bought my Judge for the sole purpose of carrying it in the berry bushes and on trails to defend myself from four-legged predators. It soon became a preferred HD gun. While being a little large to CC, I do have a cheap IWB holster that will conceal the gun down my right hip and stays put when sitting, standing and walking. A friend was amazed that he had not seen it before I pulled the beast out at the range. The only real issue I have with that holster is that I must unhitch my belt and pants to reholster, which is really a non-issue if I had to actually use it for defense.



    For the bush I carry in a OWB Triple-K.

    I trust my life to a Taurus firearm. I trust my life to my back up as well. If you take care of it it's going to take care of you. Much like any other piece of equipment out there.

    My issues with Taurus are documented here previously. PT111 G1 - loved the gun. Law suit. Lawyers. CEO hiding from the public and ignoring the reputation. For EDC I do not trust any striker fired pistol. Too many bang- click- click- rack- click bangs. ( G1). So, hammer fired pistols by Taurus are considered as EDC worthy of being checked out. If found reliable, the Taurus meets the requirements of an EDC- reliable, fits the hand and shoots well. Inexpensive- instead of your bling guns in the $3500-6000 range. Use that in a gunfight, and watch it go to the evidence room, dirty in a box for months. A Taurus? Ok. Go buy another one.

    I've been shooting my TH9c enough that it's becoming one with my arm. The thing never balks, always shoots and shoots straight to POA. Can't ask much more. Now, my Taurus revolvers are fantastic, but about ANY revolver always goes bang. They're unreal accurate, too, though. So, whether I feel like an auto chucking brass waster or a revolver when I get up in the morning, hey, I have have the Taurus for the day.

    Any of the Taurus I have ever owned, Rossis also, I would trust my life to.

    They have always worked quite well for me

    I have 4 Taurus handguns. All semi auto. Three I do trust with my life and carry one of them everyday, period. 2 PT 111G2's and a Spectrum. Between the G2's there are over 10,000 rounds (7,000/3,000). The other one (tcp) I do not trust at all but would never get rid of for fear that someone else would.

I pointed out that one poll is on a specific pistol while the other is on a company that has had an extensive product line over a period of 70+ years. So there is not direct comparison. I made the following post:

    "Which is mostly irrelevant. First, it really isn't a scientifically conducted poll. It's a poll on a gun board that doesn't have defined criteria. For example, the Shield poll is specifically on one single pistol, the Shield. The Taurus poll however could cover any and all Taurus pistols or revolvers for the last 70+ years. Of those that responded 'no', have they ever owned or shot a Taurus product? We don't know. Have they owned or shot one in the last decade? We don't know. Did they own a specific Taurus product with a known issue/recall? We don't know. Did they damage their own pistol and then rant about it with an unfair/inaccurate recent post? We don't know. Did they actually have a legitimate bad experience with a Taurus product? We don't know. Did they simply parrot what they heard from their next door neighbor's co-worker's brother's buddy 15 years ago? We don't know.

    So comparing a poll on a specific pistol vs. a poll on an entire product line over a 70+ year period, when there are no definitive parameters is a bit disingenuous.

    What we do know for sure is that members who do own a Taurus product have overwhelmingly responded, in various posts/threads, that they like and trust their Taurus product. This seems to get overlooked for some reason although it's a pretty substantial indicator.

    A more accurate measure would be to start two polls. The criteria would be that you own and have shot the pistol in question. One poll would be on folks that have a Shield and the other that have something comparable like the G2s. Then see what the polls reveal. Still not a scientific poll, but it would be a lot more relevant than what you've tried to imply several times. As it is now, it's apple and oranges."

    I carry the G2C because mine has never failed to function with any factory load type or bullet style or weight. I had a jamming PT709 which made multiple trips back to Taurus and the final fix had a new serial number on it. I am convinced that any reliability issue is with the individual firearm unless there is a design issue. Maybe the flaw in an individual firearm is due to poor tolerances or workmanship, but if one weapon functions flawlessly, then all the others CAN, because a perfectly working gun doesn't happen by accident. So any manufacturer can make an individual poor weapon (also had a new jam-o-matic Kimber micro 9 that had to be returned for repair but it made only one trip, instead of Taurus 4 or 5 trips). The dealer of the 709 on the last trip, fired into a bucket of sand to prove it was defective then let Taurus have an ear full as a dealer. This was several years ago and the new PT709 worked perfect. This taught me some defects are so subtle that even the manufacturer cannot find them. A revolver will fire without the precision needed in a high speed slide weapon but they can also have defects. My G2C is dependable and I have an equal confidence in my PT709 because both have several hundred rounds without a failure. Short answer, it depends on the individual firearm assuming the manufacturer CAN make a good one with their design and tolerances. G2 is a fine weapon.

    Yes Sir, is my vote! In fact, I am carrying two of them today (this week) My 111, and my Spectrum. Could just as easily been my 709 and my 738. When these guns come up in my rotation, they get carried, as do others.
