Yep, that price comes about equal to ordering a HiPoint with an extra magazine and having to pay for shipping which makes this a bargain in it's own right. Add in the fact that it ain't HiPoint ugly and it's a down right winner in every way.
I just purchased one (backordered 30 to 45 days)
I have to say, I'm rolling the dice here. The very first Taurus I owned was a PT111 with those awful Heinie Sights. It was the only gun I've ever sold that I didn't "have" to sell. I couldn't hit a barn from the inside and that's no bull. I loved the way the gun carried and felt in my hand. I wanted to like it, but it had to go.
Here's to second chances!
