Just found this site and all the info. I've done some searching about the 92 and like what I hear so far. I sure would appreciate some more input on this great looking pistol. Really would like honest opions about it. I have a S&W M&P 40 in the arsenal already and wanted a 9 to go with it. Really did not want another polymer piece and the dealer up the street has the 92 in brushed stainless. Very nice looking, but will the finish hold up to range use and general handling? Thanks and hope to hear lots of good things (or bad) from the great members here.

Welcome to the forums. Do have a recommendation or two for you. Hardly in the door and homework is being assigned. :) :eek: 8) ::)

Please go to the FAQs board and read those over. Then go to the Other Taurus guns board and read all the old and new threads that pertain tothe PT92. That'll bring you up to speed and give you something to do until the PT92 crowd shows up.

The FAQs and Smithing section have PT92 data as well.

Oh man, homework already? Thanks for the hints. Didn't know about any other Taurus Boards. Done the searching here, just wanted to get some feedback and questions to help me make the decision. Maybe some questions I had not thought of will be brought out by some one asking.
Again, great site and thanks.

Let me rephrase that. That's the title of the board here for other guns that are Taurus. Not other Taurus forums somewhere else on the internet.

I put a little addition on your welcome introduction if you care to take a look. At least a reply to your introduction to here. :)

I have M&P9 and Beretta 92FS Inox...

I love the 92 design and PT92 is hard to beat for the price. Not sure about the finish but (stainless is stainless :/) I'd say get one for sure...

No more about to it! I made the short trip up to my local shop and made the purchase. Should be all ready for me next Tuesday. I'm already planning a day at the range to test it out. Very happy with the shop and the gun. Looking forward to learning as much as possible. First Wednesday of each month the shop holds a CCW class, and I'm all signed up. 'Bout time, right? Can always learn something new and refresh old good habits. Thanks for all of the information and interest. More as it develops.

This may be more for the public here than for you. Please take the gun apart,clean, and lube it prior to going to a CCW class. Then take the gun to the range and run a couple hundred rounds through it for break in and personal familiarity with that particular gun.

A couple extra mags for the class would also help.

We've had members who did not do any of this,went to class, and then were totally distraught over losing the money for the class and p.o.ed at the guns performance.

Expecting things to work out well without breaking the gun in like a new car's engine or becoming familiar with the guns vagaries can cause much grief down the road if not done.

For extra mags www.cdnnsports.com , www.cheaperthandirt.com, www.gunclips.net , www.mec-gar.com , or www.jgsales.com should be able to help.

Congratulations on your purchase! I think you'll be extremely pleased with your new PT92. Mine has been 100% durable, reliable and accurate and to say I get a lot of enjoyment from it would be an understatement.

You are so correct in cleaning, lubing and then getting familair with that particular weapon. Those were the items on my agenda. The class is not for about 2 weeks after I get the gun so I will have plenty of time to get familiar with it and how it shoots and functions. Cleaning will be the first order of business absolutely.
Thanks for the links on extra magazines. I will probably be on the lookout for a couple extra very shortly. The PT comes with 2, but an extra or 2 is always handy.
Since my 'other' gun is a .40, I am looking forward to shooting this gun in 9mm. I'm going to take them both to the range and shoot several mags full each.
From what I hear, the CCW range requirements are more geared toward can you handle the weapon rather than shooting a XX% at x distance. The class for the CCW should be helpful in that repect. I'm going into the class with the attitude of learning all that they can teach me, rather than been there, done that.
Really looking forward to this gun and learning its ins and outs.

Thanks again for all of the feedback and information. Great site and members.


BTW, I do plan on enjoying this gun.

Jim,glad to hear all that. I figured that not only do classes and general shooting might be needing extra mags, but for IDPA,bullseye, or some other form of competition might be a possibility later on. :)

Can never have enough ammo or mags. :D

Well, I pick up the new gun tomorrow and bring it home for cleaning and inspection. Then off to the range to check it out! I'll report back tomorrow after range time and let all know what I think.

I guess Jim's too busy having fun shooting his new stainless PT-92 to report back. :shooter:
