    I thought the price was a little high too but I buy all my guns from the same place and it is a small town dealer.

    Definitely am looking at getting a few more mags too. What do they usually go for price wise?

    The magazines go between $20-30. Practice taking the safety off as you draw and it's not a problem.

    I don't intend to use the safety so it's a non-issue. I'm a lefty so I don't really worry about accidentally bumping it

    I will keep that in mind. I'm probably going to oil it up tomorrow and cycle the action a bunch of times before I take it to the range as well.

    Just got back from the range. My wife was with me so I probably only put 100 rounds through the G2S.

    All in all I like the gun. It is not an unpleasant gun to shoot and the trigger is OK.

    I had 1 malfunction. I think it was a FTF.

    I also noticed that there is sometimes I can feel part of the trigger dragging on something.

    I guess for the price point I cant complain. I guess it will probably rub itself smooth if I shoot the gun more.

    Does anyone have the steel recoil assembly from Lakeline LLC? I think it would be a nice addition.

    Got here to late dangit, did you CLEAN it before you shot it, clean the mags and load them full,
    then let them sit for a few days.
    And just cause, while you are cleaning it, take some Flitz or Mothers mag polish on a q-tip and rub that feed ramp on the barrel,
    then go shot it!

    Thanks for all that but yeah. I cleaned it, dry fired it about a million times.

    I'm not too worried about the 1 malfunction. It's a new gun.

    Mags need breaking in and gun does too. I was honestly surprised I only had one.

    If it's like the G2C it's just enough material to not be painful as a SCCY or a DB9 to shoot. G3 seems to be the sweet spot for just enough material to adsorb the 9mm. The trigger you just have to get used to, takes a bit to get to that wall but when you do it's decent. If you ever shoot a stock SD9 you will appreciate the G2(S)/(C) triggers.

    Did you use the 2nd strike to see if you could go at it again or was it out of battery?

    It is, it's a few posts on that issue and it's a split between trigger swaps and file down the hook. I'm not sure if Taurus switched out the striker guides in the S models but the Cs still had the older G2 ones. When you cock the slide back and look under, if you see orange it's the G2 style and yellow is G3. The G2 has a cut out in the striker guide for a internal gun lock no longer used. That cut sometimes causes issues so I swapped it wit the SS striker guide from lakeline. The issue you describe sounds like the safety blade on the trigger is not cleanly releasing from the frame. W/o modifying the gun you might have to position your finger differently and remember where you had it to get it to release just enough. I have too many guns and to many years of shooting to relearn how to shoot so I just swapped triggers on my guns. Besides that the trigger bar it's self will wear in in places to smooth out that part of the guns action. Other parts will wear in over time as well but not trigger related.

    Quite a few of us have fell into the I only want 1 thing and ended up parts cannoning the gun off lakeline, have the rods in both my guns and don't regret it at all. I don't remember for the G2 but the G3 had a more metal sound when racking it after I went SS guide rod. There was folks breaking the plastic rods in G2's but I haven't seen that happen on the G2C/S publicly here or the FB forums. I personally don't like plastic guide rods and 99% of my guns that came plastic aren't plastic anymore. I have 1 more gun to "deplastic" but justifying the price of the rod for how little I use it.

Luckily in that case it was a color not locally available and threaded barrel. Some places is $25 FFL and some are up to $60 if the gun is in stock there or not. Most my buys online are guns that aren't built anymore and can't be found locally w/o calling every store in the 100 mile radius that sells used guns.
    I've been strongly considering obtaining a C & R license to buy the mil surp offerings at a "discount". The trouble revolves around the fact that my FFL only charges 20 bucks and I'd have to buy a much larger safe in order to make the license fee "pay" off. The savings kind of evaporate!

    Yes I will have to take a look at the gun and look for colors lol.

    I also am a hater of plastic in parts like recoil assemblies.

    I think the steel guide rod might take the recoil down a bit too.
