hey all,

my name is paul. i'm from minnesota. just wanted to thank everyone for making this sight possible. i've been doing a lot of research on the 1911 family and have decided that i will get a taurus. i don't think i can go wrong with this gun. i have owned a 24/7 .40 for about nine months and love it. i took a ccw course and carried it for a month and decided it was a little big so now i carry my kel-tec p11 in 9mm. my 24/7 is more of a home defense gun now but it does get the occassional hip treatment.

once again thanks everyone for this great forum

paul

Welcome to the forums.
Recommendation is to go with the stainless PT1911 if looking for a 1911. Blued ones wear the finish. Not all, but there is some evidence the blue wears quickly.

Is the 24/7 a full size or compact model?
There was a single stack Taurus 9mm. at the S.H.O.T show. If and when it's to be released hasn't been determined yet.

i had already decided to go ss. my wife likes it too and maybe she'll shoot it if she likes the way it looks. my 24/7 is full size. it does carry okay in my iwb, but in my fobus it really sticks out like a sore thumb.

Full size guns do act like bricks and boxes of breakfast cereal. Too,darn big at times to wear comfortably all the time and everywhere for long extended periods.

The PT111 Mil/pro works well for me.
If not we have a Bersa fan club and some who have Makarovs though these are down in power as compared to the .40S&W. Single stack pistols have it all over the double stacks for comfort and portability.

S&W 908/3913 series and Kahr K9/P9 and their brethren seem to have the lead in that department.
Pull up a chair,kick the feet up, and stay a spell. ;D

Do recommend to read the FAQs ( Meet the FAQers :D ),and read the old and new threads to get up to speed if not already done.

Hey Paul, I knew a guy from Minnesota by the name of Paul.
They even had a statue of him in Bemidji. His name was Paul Bunyan!
Just kidding! ;D I wonder if that statue is still there, with Babe the Blue Ox?

A warm welcome to the forum from Tulsa Oklahoma! :)

All;
I'm a recent BIG fan of the Makarov in... 9x18 Makarov!

It is a relatively small, thin, light carry gun. A copy of the Walther PP it was the standard side-arm of the Soviet Army forever but carries an extra round or two of a cartridge that is 20-25% more powerful than the .380 ACP version. Plus, the bullet is actually a hair bigger (.37 vs .36)! They are reliable, reasonably acurate, and also relatively inexpensive but not cheap. It is what I travel with most often.
