I am ashamed to say that my first impression of the Taurus brand was colored by the opinion of a local gun shop employee. This 'blowhard' waned on about its Brazilian origins, cheap price and his montra that 'cheap equals inaccurate'. He couldn't have been more wrong!

My first experience with the Taurus 24/7 PRO pistol in 9mm was a real surprise and my bias was dismantled when the Taurus won the NRA handgun of the year.

An smart stainless steel finished upper and durable (and surprisingly comfortable) polymer lower that fits a large adult hand.

Just like the more expensive Glocks, the Taurus is unique its design as a striker fired, semi-auto. Misfired ammunition can receive multiple trigger pulls without working the slide. This 'second chance' trigger system has a light double action trigger pull making your shooting flow exceptional as you keep your sight on target.

It is important to understand the position the Taurus 24/7 PRO plays in the market as a great self defense weapon. However, it is not a good choice for competitive shooting. The trigger pull is not double action or heavy enough to qualify in most competitions.

While some may criticize the use of a full size pistol for concealed carry applications, the Taurus 24/7 PRO is completely safe and will not fire without the safety on unless the trigger is pulled - a great human error feature. The external safety on the Taurus 24/7 PRO completely locks both trigger and slide. The safety is easily managed just like any 1911 model. For those who aren't regular shooters the extra measure of security against a negligent discharge is very comforting.

Okay, so how does it shoot? The 9mm is a smooth shoot and recoil is very manageable. The pistol is accurate with Heine Straight 8 sights adjustable for windage. Many enthusiasts will look for aftermarket night sights or be creative on their own bench.

Finally, as I mentioned before, no pistol fits all roles or is optimal for every situation. But if you are in the market for inexpensive, full sized self defense, take a good look at the Taurus 24/7 PRO.

Congrats on the new Taurus.I recently purchased a PT111 CA 9mm and love it.
the only quality issue I found was in the magazine follower.I disassembled and found some flashing which was easily fixed.

The quality out of the box is what impressed me and was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was aside from the packing grease.There were no burs or metal present and had a factory polish on the feed ramp.

I owned a 24/7 PRO C in 9mm, and it was a good little handgun. The only issue I had was the loonnggg trigger pull, but I got over it. It ran reliable and was accurate.

I have a Taurus 1911 in .45acp, and my bud brought his 24/7 up to my place to shoot. Hated it! That half a mile long trigger pull is no good for me. I pull the trigger on my 1911 when it had moved about 1/16 of an inch, and it breaks the same every time. My bud got rid of his 24/7 and got him a Taurus 1911 in .45acp. Each to his own, just like that full steel frame 1911. Been around over a 100 years and still going strong.
