Hello my fellow Bulls this is Korey aka CaintShootRight joining you all from Blue Springs Missouri by way of St. Louis Missouri. I picked up my first Taurus firearm yesterday & took it directly to the range. There's a lot of hype about the Public Defender's accuracy (Poly) when shooting .45 lc at 10-12 feet. Well, at 5-7 yards, I put every shot where I wanted it to be, & I CaintShootRight lol..... Anyways, I'm very pleased with my purchase & glad I did not believe the hype although it does have a short barrel. I'm looking forward to possibly making Taurus Arms 1 of my go to manufacturers. I'll check out more of their firearms & see what happens. Any suggestions?
