    Funny you bring up the sccy. I owned one last winter. It would fail to go into battery with FMJ ammo. They would nose dive into the feed ramp. Didn't matter what ammo I used. I ended up dumping that gun on the used market. Wonder what ever happened to it.

    I see my dealer has a bunch more in stock, and they are $199. Might have to give another one a chance. See if maybe I get a good one.

    I keep saying that but Taurus G2 is always cheaper than it. Taurus was the cheap gun but I ended up replacing my Sig 938. When I sold the 938 I somehow managed to walk out with the Taurus 605. If I ever fall into wanting it again it has to be a pre recall crimson red with carbon slide. Recalled triggers(no vertical ridges) give me blisters from the brutal shock of the 9mm round in such a light gun. I was anti DA gun now after having that heavy trigger I have 4 SA/DA guns in my rotation.

I still want a CPX-2, but I don't need it, so I probably won't get it. I'd like to carry the G2C, it's what I planned on doing, but after pocket carrying a Kahr CM40 for some years now, the G2C just feels HUGE. So I still carry the Kahr, and the G2C is playing the roll of home defense, along with my Hipoint JCP.
    Here's my CPX-2 vs the G2 that was sold from under me. test fired the G2 and was like I don't get paid till tomorrow. Tomorrow came and that joker was gone.





    This was most of my ownership, if I couldn't fix it, or get the parts it went back. G2 I only had the trigger issue, rest was random parts and unfinished slide dragging against the barrel in 3 places.





    Crazy part is that gun sold for more than I paid for it.



    If you really one one, be prepared for fun times if the pin walks and cracks the frame. The serial number is not on the frame but they still treat it that way and won't send you a new one. The CPX2 G2 938 and 605 are all pocket guns for me. When I looked for Smith pocket guns they run $1500-$2000 because they are super rare Performance Center guns and or had Lew Horton papers.

    I just bought a G2C as my first handgun and am looking forward to my first shoot. I like the feel, esthetics and Taurus appears to have gotten on track with it's reorganization. I think it's a great deal if you're new to firearms and don't want to invest in a Beretta, Glock or Smith and Wesson yet.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois! Enjoy that new G2c.

    I got mine for $189.00 at Gander Mountain. My local gun shop was selling them for $350.00,no thanks This is most likely the best deal on a pistol that I have ever seen. This pistol is well made, no cheap Charlie here The fit and finish is really wonderful for a $189 pistol. On top of it all it comes with two mag's. The field strip for cleaning is so easy a blind moran could do it in the dark. Took it to the range and fired 250 rounds of 115 gr ball 9mm and fired it at 10 yards with no problems what so ever. Accuracy was very good for a 3.25 inch barrel. What's not to like. Get one, you will not regret it. Go to Gander Mountain site for a really good deal

    Best regards Lycan.

    I got one and I love it. Imo, it's the best sub $250 pistol on the market today.

    just got mine a few days before Christmas, first shots it was dead on with elevation but an inch or so to the right at 10yds. then i looked at the rear sight, it was to the right, i adjusted it dead even and the shots were center. i love this gun, it was flawless through all the rds i fired. also as i put in another post i contacted taurus about the plastic recoil spring assembly make me a little worried the chat guy said no worries we will take care of you. i thought he ment that if mine broke they would send one, nope in about a week i had one in the mail. i am very glad i bought mine.

    Yep Gander Outdoors here and Point Blank keep selling them for this price which is what the used G2 goes for.

    No!! Haven't you read on about every interweb outlet that Taurus is utter junk??

    No really I love mine more than my Glock 19. It's just as reliable. It's just as accurate. It's easier to conceal.

    They should be a good gun, the only draw back that I see the 1 year warranty.
