    Yep... Took them both to the indoor range today for a shoot-off!

    Both guns are stock

    50' with variety of ammo. Standing, two-handed, one handed, and sometimes rested on a box ...about 200 rounds through each

    Put on splatter targets to make it easier to see at 50'

    Observations

    - I can discern NO appreciable difference in accuracy

    - The 10+1 non-threaded barrel Glock cost $350 and I paid about $240 for the 16+1 threaded barrel Taurus if I recall

    - the trigger on the Taurus TX22 is better (while the resets are about the same... The TX22 is a noticeably smoother, lighter trigger to pull)

    - the length of pull (distance between back of grip and trigger) is shorter on Glock ... Hence the guns feel different

    - the humpbacked grip on the TX22 is ok... Just different

    - see pics for size comparisons... Taurus taller... Not much else different

    - while both are very lightweight, they each handle recoil with ease... Little muzzle flip compared to fixed barrel .22's

    - the rear Glock sight is better - I prefer the U

    - the front TX22 sight is better (smaller dot)

    - both functioned 100% with all the ammo I tried (save for one or two duds as usual with cheap .22lr)

    - mags are easy to load on both models (plastic mags)

    Both are FUN to shoot and shoot accurately and function well

    The Taurus TX22 is a better value given the price, threaded barrel and mag capacity

    Here's several pics

    I've not fired the Glock 44, but considering all the extras one gets with the TX22, the price makes it a much better buy, IMO.

    I have been waiting for the kel tec p17 to come out to compare to tx 22. Still with so many great tx 22 reviews it's hard to wait.

    Very simple solution, get both. You can never own too many rimfires.

    SURE there's a NEED! Bound to be, else why would I have several?



    Not pocketable, but I put off buying a Ruger Mk 1/2/3 for a long time. Finally added a Mk 2. You need at least one Mk series Ruger, also. The things are affordable, reliable, and very accurate.

    I too waas waiting for the Kel-tec P17, but was told twice that these were at distributors when that was not true. There are a few P17s at online gun auctions, but getting spare mags is not going to happen as no one seems to have them.

    So it seems that the TX22 is what I am going to go for. Thanks for the report IowaShooter.

    I noticed your Glock is a US made model. Are any of these being made in Austria?
