Interestingly enough, I've noticed that a couple of other officers I know own PT111s and use them as off-duty arms. Tonight another officer stopped in to show off his new gun and what do you know, it was a PT145 SS. Guess they aren't such pieces of crap after all.

IMO, guns are like automobiles. You put your life in both of them. One is given careful thought and the other is an afterthought (figure which one is which).

My friend's sister (older woman) bought her very first car a few years back. A '95 Ford Escort for getting from point A-B. It's nice for her, good size, good gas milage. As with most first time car owners, we think the first car we own is the best, or we become loyal to a particular brand. In a casual conversation, she asked me what I thought which was the best car (maybe thinking I would say ford or chevy, which is what I own)? I thought for a moment, and merely said "any car that starts and doesn't leave you stranded". Same as with a gun, which gun(or in this case 9mm) is the best? Well, the one that goes bang! when you need it most ;D .

THe PT111 Mil-pro is a very nice pistol. It is light carry piece, nice and smooth to shoot and easy to maintain. I also love how it fits my hand and it won't break the bank. Have fun at the range.

Here, and especially at other gun forums, the positive side is being seen for a change. More positive short threads are the norm for know anyway.

Just tell them that Taurus won 3 prestigious awards in 2005 and the 24/7 and 24/7 OSS have garnered awards in 2006 and 2007. Several newer awards are fromt the NRA.

Awards in 2005 as follows: Shooting Industry Manufacturer of the Year award, National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers Manufacturer of the Year, and SHOT Business Manufacturer of the Year.
NRA awards were more recent but would have to research ato see which two they were.

So Taurus is doing something right. Bashers and trolls ignore that completely.

The latest bash technique is to say that Customer Service is unresponsive or insulting to callers. That may have been true a year ago or more. Those staff or Taurus that did that are all fired and gone.

Since I have contacted Taurus Customer service to ask questions several times this year responses were positive in each case.

Time in getting the gun back however can still be a source of frustration though.

Losing the gun is another favorite basher technique. "They don't know where it is and still don't", goes the cry. That is not true either. They have been tracking where guns are pretty well.

So expect this kind of line to continue.

Been reading the gun magazines. In most of them only the "high priced spread" gun are even showcased. This is leaving the major part of the users in limbo. Most of the shooting public actually uses the "run of the mill" gets the job done variety of firearm.

Most of this is a quote from one of the other threads here and this is getting pounded home at THR and TFL forums over and over. The quote is from yours truly.

Figured the truth needed telling.

The great part is that many members from here and at any of the gun forums have been deft and supportive of Taurus threads. Even the forums that are usually famous for griping are turning in favor of Taurus. It takes courage, fortitude,and persistence to overcome adversity. Members everywhere have been doing an outstanding job of this.

All gun manufacturers should be respected unless it is blantently obvious that that respect is not warranted.

I've found that most people who say that every brand other than theirs is junk suffer from the "designer jeans" mentality. I know people who are only satisfied with $95 dollar jeans because they think they are getting something better than what they would get at a Target, Walmart, or any average department store. Truth is, most "designer clothes" are made in the same sweat factories as the less expensive brands.

I was at Bass Pro the other day and talked to a few other customers in the firearm section. One said Glocks outperform and are much "tougher" than any other brand. Another said the same of Springfields and Sigs. To each their own. Get what works... and for me, Taurus works great.

That makes me smile - these are people who value the fact that their butt looks good. At least they have their priorities straight. [grin]
