    Smile TAURUS FIREARMS !

    Have several friends that for lack of some $$ Buy Taurus,their favorite are the Revolvers from the 1980s along with their better functioning semi auto 92s in particular . One of my favorites was the model 85 SS 5 shot revolver with a bright finish worked for me.Any members collect Taurus and not just for fishing sinkers ?

    I bought one of the 809's on closeout for $230, I've put 1000 rounds through it so far. You could feel how sluggish the action was at first, partially due to lack of lube and partially because the ammo I was using has unusually rough cases. After I started greasing it pretty heavily that went away. Its pretty accurate but even after shooting a case of ammo it still hasn't grown on me.

    I like the older revolvers, and even newer ones aren't bad! Won't touch a striker fired - just because of personal bad experience and other stories. As you mentioned 92 are good seeing they were basically Beretta's with different stamping, so I have always been ok with them and have always heard decent reviews of their 1911's. If a good older revolver comes up at a good price, I always jump on it. My shop let me know today they have a beautiful ss 85 with wood grips that I would have jumped on but I already have the exact same gun ( not that that has ever stopped be before ) !

    I owned a Model 85 and 85 ultra lite. Both performed flawlessly.

    I owned a blued PT92 many years ago and it seemed ok. I have zero trust in Taurus firearms these days...

    I carried a stainless 5 shot on my own time for many years, never had a problem.
    I can't speak to the current reliability or quality.

    The PT 111 G2 is probably one of the if not the best budget concealed carry/Self defense pistols on the market today.
