I bought one of the 1st generation 24/7's and broke it in this last weekend. Just thought I'd share what I thought. Right away I found out that I had to be very careful with the pistol because it scratches so easily. There are several scratches now on the pistol. I can't believe the finish is so weak. This is really the biggest let down for me about the gun. But I guess that's why taurus pistols are cheap. I noticed that the front fixed sight is off to the right and of course I shot to the left. I put the gun on a rest and tightened the groups up and its still off to the left about 1 to 2 inches. Not a huge deal I guess, it's not a target pistol. Now the good. Like I said I put it on the rest and the groups were very tight. I shot 1 clip of Remington Home Defense ammo and 3 clips of Remington UMC ammo and had no jams. The gun is balanced very well with a full clip. As I shot it got a little heavy on the end, but it is a long slide model. All and all I think its a good pistol for the money. If money wasn't an issue, I would buy something else. But I feel comfortable using this as a home defense gun.
