  1. PT92, TX 22, GX4 & Other Taurus Pistols
    About a year ago i bought a 809 9mm. I love this gun. It shoots perfect, accurate, and it was a great price. Now all of a sudden its discontinued?!?!?! I was planning on picking up some more magazines for it but it looks like they have all been snatched up. Nobody has any. Does anyone know...

  3. Taurus Suggestion Box
    I just got back from firing my new PT809C and I am BLOWN AWAY. This is the cheapest gun I own and the BEST shooting firearm in my quiver. Now I am all about cheap firearms haveing Kahrs and Smith and Wessons and etc. But a 17 or 13 ROUND, DOUBLE ACTION, HAMMER FIRED hand gun for UNDER $300...

    Buds and Armslist are selling PT 809's / 809's but the gun now has distinctly new styling. The slide is much taller now, and it appears that the barrel is 4 inches instead of 4.2 inches now. Look at the image below to see the new style on the left (with newr serial number) next to the old one on...
  5. Taurus Product Problems
    I have owned my full sized 809 for about 2 yrs now and this is the first problem I have had with it. I'm generally pretty good about diagnosing problems and fixing my own guns, but this one has me stumped. I keep my firearm very clean and I use it quite frequently. I was shooting on the weekend...

    I'm looking for PT809 compact 13 round magazines. Not the 17 round ones with the sleeves. Anyone know where I can get 13 rounders? or know other models mags that fit in a compact 809? Thanks
  7. Taurus Product Problems
    Well, after waiting for eight months on three backordered 13 round magazines I gave up and traded my eight month old PT 809 c for a Sig Sauer P250 Compact. Which is a far superior handgun! I even left a message on Taurus' FB page about my disappointment. Not only about having magazines on...

    Hi guys. It's been asked many times, but it is still not clear for which is the right holster for the PT809. I know that "right" is very subjective, but the main use will be IPDA competitions, no concealed carry and it should be OWB. Thank you! Jose

    Hello everyone. I recently joined the proud Taurus owners club with my new Taurus PT-809c and I'm trying to find holsters. I'd like an iwb and owb. nac

    I'm new to the forum but I have have been shooting and loving it since I was a child. I've been running an 809 for a while and I am a firm believer that there is no better pistol in the world for the price. I am excited to be here and look forward to learning from all of you.

    Hello all, A friend located some recently-hard-to-find 9mm (white box, Winchester) at a local Dick's. Upon bringing them over to me, I noticed they are 9mm NATO, 124gr FMJ. Will these 9mm NATO fire in my 809 without adverse affect? PS: I didn't see an 800 Series section, so I posted here as...
  12. Concealed & Open Carry
    Just received a PT809 as a Christmas present from my wife and am in love with the thing. Its my first handgun and am planning on taking the CWC class and test in the next year after I get some practice time in. From what Ive gathered the best way for me to carry is going to be in a IWB holster...

    I got this baby today. I wanted to get a compact to match but Academy's inventory was not accommodating me. Anyway, from what I have read, not to mention the amount of grease it was packed in, I need to give this girl a thorough cleaning before taking her to the range. My question is would a...
  14. Taurus Product Problems
    Bought a new p809 yesterday at Academy Sports. Got the gun home, stripped, cleaned, and lubed. Usually break in before trusting a gun; however I traded my home defense gun for this one. Loaded u p, racked round in chamber and used de-cocker to release hammer. Gun discharged into the kitchen...
  15. PT92, TX 22, GX4 & Other Taurus Pistols
    I recently bought a new PT809. I have to say I'm pleased with everything thus far except the decocking lever. it doesn't seem to work. I'm new to guns so maybe I'm just not using it right, but it seems pretty straight forward - just push the lever down. but it doesn't decock the hammer like...
  16. PT92, TX 22, GX4 & Other Taurus Pistols
    Tell us what you think about it. Any problems? How old is it/ How many miles are on it? Post some pics of it if you'd like. I'm looking at a new 809 stainless, and for the same price as a new 24/7 G1. But I've heard of a few issues with the earlier 800 pistols, which seems weird because...
