I've been thinking about another .40 again, but dang they are getting scarce!Whoop-dee-doo, another striker-fire 9mm micro compact... I miss when Taurus used to try to innovate and released next/exciting firearms instead of just playing follow-the-leader with the latest boring trends. Sure, not everything they came up with was a hit, but at least it was interesting.
The modern firearms market has become so boring, so predictable... I miss when there were options, when firearms came chambered in more than one cartridge, when companies actually tried to compete by bringing something new to the table instead of just copying one another to the point that it might as well be the same gun with a different name stamped on it.
An assault rifle would have been cool, especially if it wasn't an AR Pattern rifle, but no, they're working on yet another 9mm micro compact pistol to join all the rest, with the only distinguishing feature is that it might cost slightly less than the competition.
I'm so sick of seeing nothing but 9mms too, I swear that at this point I wouod buy a brand new pistol chambered in .45 GAP just to support a company for releasing something other than 9mm or .22LR. I get that it's the most popular and that it makes Jello jiggle with the best of 'em, but come on, there are other cartridges, use 'em!
Im a Glock guy .. at times in my life , I have had up to 16 in my safe at one time .. I have 6 at this time ...addressed to Dive Bum not YR Sued
The same could be said about Sig or Glock or any company for that matter , all I Hear is Taurus This or Taurus That , I Have had to send one Back and Ya Know the turn around time was reasonable , no one company as all that , NO ONE!!!! get the hell over your selves your 4 mins are up about whining about what Taurus did years ago, , Move On , or better yet go over to the Glock fan boys and fawn all over each other about their cracked frames , which they will deny ,
well FBI, most law enforcement moved away from them and the Military certainly isn't going to go there, soo thats the way it goes for a lot of people.I've been thinking about another .40 again, but dang they are getting scarce!
Being the internal steel frame (chassis) is where the serial number is .. makes me believe Taurus will be offering different size frames and slide and barrel lengths , Similar to the Sig P250 seriesCrazy....can't see any frame pins or extractor roll pin anywhere on the exterior...I looked at the exploded parts schematic for the GX4 and it looks like maybe the disassembly pin (the one you turn to take off the slide) can come out, then the internal frame is lifted up from the front (the back of it could be simply 'hooked/held under' part of the grip) and then taken out. Interesting.
Check out the SCCY DVG 1 .. striker fired ..I'll probably get one when it shows up in my local Rural King for $249.99...haven't gotten a p365 or any of the other competition yet. I do have an SCCY CPX2 and like it well enough, but that trigger! If this thing is as good as some of the reviews indicate (not talkin' Sootch here!) then that would be a welcome change.

I just bought a G3 and it's accurate and reliable. So far 250 rounds and no malfunctions. As to the GZ4, I think it will sell. The MSRP is just a bit over half of what I paid for a Hellcat. Just a Friendly hint. Be sure you want this type of gun. The Hellcat is just about perfect but I only carry it very occasionally. The CZ P-01 or CZ Compact is what I usually wear and prefer them.
Have you ever seen a review where Sootch didn't like something?Sootch has become a believer in Taurus and his reviews of the G-series have been very positive.He did a review of the GX4 which he loved. The only problem he had was that it shot 2" low. He may have had a pre-release model since he said he got it directly from Taurus
indeed , always to THINK about a weapon before just jumping in and buying it, at least try to handle and more try to actually fire it first.I just bought a G3 and it's accurate and reliable.

I did my yearly LEOSA qualification this morning and one of retired LEO's had a 365. He fired the course with it and qualified 100%. He let me shoot a magazine with it and it's a fine gun indeed. It's no trouble get kill zone hit's with it at the 25 yard line. I do think it's a toss up between the SA Hellcat and the SIg. Both will do the job well.indeed , always to THINK about a weapon before just jumping in and buying it, at least try to handle and more try to actually fire it first.
Myself i carried (and still do ) a CZ P-01 and it has been an amazing weapon as to function, reliability and accuracy, well past 9-K rounds now.
BUT I purchased a Sig 365 after a good bit of thinking, research, fondling and i must admit it gets carry 98% of the time now as it is a lot smaller, lighter, almost the same capacity, is accurate as can be and runs like a sewing machine so far.
I looked at and handled several of the mini 9 and the Sig ift me and my shooting style best of all.
