    My bad. It sounded like you were a little disappointed when I read your post.

I will check out the videos but I do not see a screw on the bottom of the slide, there is one on top though.
    Well, I have a Shield in 9mm as well...it costed me more than 50 dollars more than the 176 dollars I paid for my G2C.

    Yes I have, that's why I don't own one.

    Ok, I stand corrected, there is a screw on the bottom. My 68 year old eyes could not make it out until I got my super bright flashlight out. Really small torx? screw, hard to make it out. I also watched a video and found the Lakeline website. If I decide to keep it after I do my range testing I'll get the tritium front sight from them and install it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Got my shield a long time back, think I paid 189 for it. I've seen them for 289 somewhere here lately. I paid 229 for the G2C, but I've got a 25 rebate coming. But the shield is built much better, so I would expect to pay a little more for it. The G2C may turn out to be a good bargain for the price, I'll see after my range session.

    I put a TruGlo Universal fiber optic on mine. The screws were short that came with the new sight...I used the OEM screw and it was a tad too long...broke the rod. I filed off a bit of the screw and replaced the rod. For the < ten bucks I saved I should have bought the Lakeline LLC fiber optic front sight that has the right length screw and replacement rods in different colors.

    I think that you will warm up to it...it does what you say. Extra capacity, compact and light weight and accurate. Put it in an Alien Gear IWB holster and you'll wear it all day and hardly notice it.

    If it's not in the same class as the Shield, what did you buy it for?....................
    Hate to start off on a bad note, but the G2 and other Taurus firearms are every bit as good as anything else you can get, unless you are a fanboy...............

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    Picked up mine tonight. First 9mm, but for the price I couldn’t pass it up. All I can say is that I have talked to a few people who have had/friends who have had one and no one says anything bad about them. One friend said that he knew a guy who had one that wouldn’t feed properly. Never bothered to clean the thing from factory. So my friend took it gave it a thorough cleaning and oiled it properly, and a couple of thousand rounds later of ammo of every kind and no complaints.

    In fact, the FFL dealer said he got one for his daughter, and after a thousand rounds he’d totally bet his life on it.

    So, I figure after a proper break in period... I’ll see for myself. I don’t have experience with autos much. More of a revolver guy, so I don’t really have any pre-conceived ideas...

    I thought I had already made that clear. I wanted more capacity. And I already own a Shield. Hate to burst your bubble, but Taurus is not in the same class as SW M&P, and no I'm not a fanboy. I own many different brands, some good some bad. I once owned a Taurus PT145, it was junk, would not shoot a full mag without a malfunction, did not pass the water/mud and sand test, I would not stake my life on it and got rid of it. I own one of the Taurus made Heritage revolvers, love it. The G2C seems like a good pistol, but that is yet to be determined as I have not ran my test yet. If it passes, I will not hesitate to carry it as EDC.
