Greetings and Salutations from Northern Virginia!

I would like to say hello and thank everyone in advance for welcoming me to the forum. Not only am I new to the forum, I am a new Taurus firearm owner. How new you ask? I picked up three G2C’s last night and have only opened one of the boxes. Two of these will be my for my kids first foray into centerfire handguns after proving their competency and responsibility with .22 revolvers. The third will eventually go into a rotation of my EDC.

I did over 12 months or research on these before I took the plunge because of all the “bad press” I had always heard about Taurus firearms. The more I dug, the more I learned that the majority of people spreading that bad juju had never owned a Taurus firearm. Rule #1, don’t listen to the opinions of those who have no basis to form an opinion. Rule #2, NEVER have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

I look forward to learning as much as much as I can and contributing when I can. Have an exceptional weekend!

JT, the Armed Realtor

Welcome aboard, from Las Vegas!
I understand about realtors needing to be armed. You sometimes have to show "less than desirable" properties, located in "less than desirable" areas, to "less than desirable" clients.

Three G2's at once? I hope they're all good. I love my G2, but from some of the complaints at this website, I think a few lemons do get throught the Taurus assembly line.
I have two G2's, and one needs to go back for a problem with the trigger-blade safety (a fairly common problem).

The PT-111 G2 has a long trigger pull that some find annoying; not heavy, but long. This is due to gun's “Second Strike” capability. It normally cocks in single action mode (just like a 1911), but if you pull the trigger and the round doesn't fire, you can pull the trigger again on the same round. The trigger will then engage earlier than usual, pull the striker back, and release from its usual release point. Using reloads at the range this happens to me occasionally, and I find that the round will fire on the second strike about 75 percent of the time.

But I still like the G2. It feels good, looks good, is very compact, and has a 12 round magazine (outstanding for a compact gun).
It also has an oustanding external manual safety (firm & crisp, but not too hard).
If the PT-111 G2 only had a de-cocker, it would be perfect!
