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
