[Review] Taurus G3: Great 9mm For $250? [Updated With New Optic-Ready Version!]

Now even better… check out the awesome optics-ready version below in the Sights section! It all started with the PT111 Millenium Pro. That was the small double-stack Taurus pistol that held 12+1 and included two magazines. Features included double strike capability, adjustable rear sight and some good ergonomics. It was a competitor in the small, ... Read more

Taurus G3c upgrades

I own a Taurus G3c. I had owned two G2cs, the immediate predecessors of this smaller brother to the compact-size (15 and 17 round magazines included) G3. This compact version, the G3c, was introduced with much hoopla after a media embargo on June 15th of last year. I reviewed the gun (here) after the deadline ... Read more

[Review] Taurus 856 Defender

I like snub-nose revolvers. I admit it. If that makes me a Luddite, so be it. I started shooting more seriously and frequently at a time when the only double-stack semi-auto pistol available at your local gun store was the Browning Hi-Power, with its “enormous” 13-round capacity. In 1978 most cops/armored car drivers/security personnel/etc. carried ... Read more

[Review] Taurus 905: 9mm Snubby

“Why in the world would someone want a REVOLVER, of all things, in 9mm?” I hear you ask. To which I reply, “Because! Why not?” With 9mm being the most popular concealed carry caliber now, why not? Not everyone who carries a concealed gun carries a semi-auto…there are still two or three of us out ... Read more

[Review] Taurus 709 Slim: Perfect CCW Gun?

I have reviewed many Taurus guns, and have owned several as well. The Taurus name tends to have a polarizing effect on shooters. If you mention Taurus guns to some shooters, you might get stared at as if you had another eye appearing in the middle of your forehead, Twilight-Zone style. Some shooters just can’t ... Read more

[Review] Taurus 85 Ultralite

I have always had an attraction to snub-nosed revolvers. I’ve owned a few, including a Charter Arms .44 Special Bulldog back in the late ‘70s when David Berkowitz, aka “Son of Sam” used that gun for nefarious purposes in New York. The large-ish Bulldog stretched the definition of a snubby, but technically it fit. It ... Read more

[Review] Taurus Raging Hunter

It all started with this… … a 7 ½-inch-barreled Ruger Super Blackhawk. I had traded a 7 ½” Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt for it, long about 1980. My good friend Mitch’s dad, a military collector and owner of an original Flattop Blackhawk .44 magnum (before it became the Super Blackhawk), had me re-think swapping ... Read more

Taurus Spectrum .380 Subcompact Review

This article/review is about Taurus’ relatively new .380 ACP handgun, the Spectrum. But, before we get into discussing the Spectrum itself, a word about Taurus may be in order. (To cut to the chase, I really like my Spectrum – it’s a very reliable pistol). The following is directed at those who are not fans ... Read more

[Review] Taurus G2C 9mm

The Taurus G2C is something of a phenomenon. Sales are greater than expected, which surprises a few people. Taurus is not the company it was, even 10 years ago. It used to be that if you bought a Taurus (especially a semi-auto), some fellow shooter might hand you a quarter and say “flip it – ... Read more

The 4 Best Taurus 709 Slim Holsters

The Taurus 709 Slim looks and feels exactly like the name gives away. Taurus responded to consumers, and they produced a subcompact 9mm pistol that was smooth, sleek, and “slim” enough to avoid showing bulky lines or lumps. It’s an excellent pistol to conceal for self defensive purposes, but you’re going to need a good ... Read more
