Welcome to the forum from Northern Oklahoma.
Hi guys, my name is Jacob and I’ve recently joined the Taurus fraternity with my recent pickup of a Taurus PT92C. From my understanding the PT92C model was a limited run from Taurus, but it seems like they were ahead of the game by releasing a compact model of the PT92. Too bad they were discontinued so looking for parts has been difficult.
I would’ve gotten the regular PT92 with readily available parts however this Kung Flu virus has gotten everyone sucking the guns off the shelves clean. Which I do not mind at all with having hopes they will understand our 2A rights more in the future.
Anyways, that’s my experience so far in the Taurus world and I look forward to trying out this PT92C
Collection I got so far:
Walther PPS M2
Springfield 1911 45 ACP (I’m aware of the controversy but they had a hot deal for $500 for a quality 1911 and my weak knees gave in. Sorry 2A supporters.)
Tisas 1911 9mm (Again I’m sorry I did not buy domestic but my knees gave in and I can’t afford a $1000 9mm 1911)
Springfield 911 9mm (This list is starting to make me feel bad about myself, but palmetto state armory had this for $379.99 and maybe y’all can catch this deal if it’s not too late. Asking price everywhere else is over 500. You know already, the weak knees)
Taurus PT92C (The whole reason I’m here right now and I don’t need to be hashing out $600 for a beretta 92 at the moment)
MK12 SPR (Not really though it is an 18in PSA upper chambered in .223 Wylde cause I love the best of both worlds. It is on an Anderson lower with a 2 stage LaRue flat trigger. And of course an A2 Buttstock from Stag Arms. Also a Miculek muzzle brake.

Welcome from West Texas, Jacob!
Sounds like a nice firearm collection you have going there.
All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.

Welcome from Brooker Florida.
Welcome from Northern Illinois! I'd grab a 92C fast if I had the chance. Tisas has been putting out some very attractive pricing on 1911's.
“Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell
Welcome aboard. I noticed you have 22lr as part of your handle, but no 22lr firearms? You will like the 92C, I owned one for a few years, then sold it to a gun collector buddy. He sold it to a customer, and that customer took the grips off and messed with the trigger bar..Arghh! then gave it back to my buddy wanting a refund. So he asked me to fix it, geez if you remove the trigger bar, gotta reset the trigger return spring back to correct position. simple fix. Then a young mother I was training noticed the 92C in my safe (was waiting to give back to my buddy). She wanted to try it, talk about love at first sight. Since we all go to same church, I told her to talk to the owner and see if he would sell it to her. Well he is a really nice guy and gave it to her. She used it for her CCW class. Long story to show PT92C's get around. It isn't the most accurate pistol, but it is so easy to use and maintain.

You may be familiar with these guys, but this is always my first place to go for parts:
Even if they don't have the part, it is sometimes possible to get a part number and/or a "real" description of the part to help in the search. Also sometimes you can cross-reference the part number with other Taurus pistols (rare but it happens).
