I went to a couple of gun shops today and I guess no one in the gun business in this town knows how good Taurus is because they didn't have any.. But they did have a Ruger SR9 for $395 that was nice and it fit my hand really well and I liked how the grip felt but it was a little heavy with the mag in it. I also looked at the Ruger P95 and I love that one a lot it was almost a perfect fit but they only had it in a stainless/chromed finish that was a custom job and it was a little more expensive at $468. then I saw a S&W SD9 it was a close match in size and weight to the PT809 and IMO kinda looked like a Taurus although it was D/A only and didn't have some of the finer innovative options that the PT809 offers, but heck it was a great price at $308 and came with 2 mags one 12rd one and an extended one with 15rds and a Fobus OWB holster and the woman said she'd throw in 100 rds of federal 9mm ammo, not sure what grain she meant, but sounds like an awesome deal. All the online places that offer the PT809 were all pretty close in price around $330 and some came with extras and free shipping, but the FFL here charges $15 regardless of anything, but hey that's not bad. So I have a lot of choices but I am not sure which one should be my first purchase.. Any input is appreciated, I am not in a major rush, except on the S&W SD9 I am not sure how long she will keep that deal around, I mean someone would have to be a dunce to pass that up, or am I wrong?
