    So the Taurus Curve was obviously a dud - but they are going now for $175 with laser new. At that price, are they worth it for a b/u gun, tackle box type gun, etc.? Anyone own one and recommend? Just curious.

    Never having shot one, I can't say definitively. But I feel there are many other micro 380s in that price range that would be way better.

    I've shot one and hated it. I'm also left handed, so I was forced to shoot it with my right hand. Trigger sucks (feels like a label maker), mag disconnect sucks, "sights" suck (there are none, it's just a mark on the back of the gun). Find a used Remington RM380, or one on sale. 1000% better gun in every way.

    I didnít know these were still being made.

    From a practical standpoint itís a turd, from a one off collectors odd ball standpoint it makes sense.

    Being you already have two billion other firearms Iím sure your not buying this for operator missions so I say add it while you can.

    Yeah, I have plenty of little 380's and was debating this just for the somewhat neat factor. I also hate iwb carry, can't stand holster inside my pants so thought the curve design might be more comfortable in summer? Figured for $175 what the heck. I'll have to decide, if it's crap - it's still $175 - lol. You can tell just by looking at the trigger it sucks as mentioned - label maker probably spot on analogy ! Thanks......…...

    All that magazine stuff would take getting used to. I like how it can be flush with the bottom of a pocket, but even a cheap pocket holster will do the same thing. Keltec has the long double action trigger pull, but at least it will fire without a magazine and the mag release is in a familar spot.

    I certainly wouldn’t want it! Not if someone gave it to me. Literally one of the WORST firearms ever made! But I guess THAT in itself kinda makes it “collectors” worthy?? I don’t know... Never been a collector either. But if you want one, go for it! Part of your right! And doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks!

    Another site selling for $ 134 new - lol.

    Disregard - misleading ad. It's just for the laser/light

    I think you have to tuck your penis to shoot this gun properly. It's really gay, but you can't beat the price. Even if it is a Taurus.

    For a gun to be a deterrence, doesn't it need to look like a gun?
