    PT 100 AF

    I know it's a Taurus but I also know they are the most highly regarded of the brand, there is one sitting at the E.P.S. that I can tag sub $300, lots of finish wear but mechanically sound as far as I can tell, any of y'all own one and how has it held up for you? I know most will say get a Beretta 96 but I prefer a frame mounted safety over a slide mount

    I've owned 4 of them two were stolen and the other 2 I sold and wished I hadn't. For people that have trouble with racking a slide, the ones I had were unbelievably easy. My daughter scored 100% on her chl range test with my pt809..
    I miss that one the most of the 4. Was extremely accurate, reliable, and east to shoot. I wouldn't dare to do a complete disassembly of it though.. which is one aspect I didn't like.
    .
    Pardon me, Sir, for this difference of opinion. my personal interest in such questions is entirely extinct; but not my wishes for the longest possible continuance of our government on itís pure principles.

    At that price, It would be worth it. You can always resell it.

    Have no idea what they're going for so no idea if its a great price. But I do know a couple who both use one for their primary pistol and they love them. They seem highly thought of by others around the range because when I was considering my first 9MM service type pistol several recommended them. As far as it being a Taurus, I own 3 of their revolvers and each ha been stellar. I did own one of the 90s revolvers which had a common issue of two narrow a cylinder gap which caused cylinder binding, but they fixed it no questions asked. The only reasn it was sold off was my wife did not like the heavy barrel in her .22 target revolver.

    I find that the VAST majority of the people who bash Taurus have never owned one and are simply parroting things they hear on the internet, or it was their 3rd cousins, best friends sister. I hear few people who actually say, I had this problem... And honestly I only listen to first person accounts for anything I am looking at.

    Are they perfect, heck no, they have gone through periods where they had more issues, some where they had less so have just about every manufacturer of any mechanical contrivance. They did have an issue with one of their polymer pistol models recently but I understand they have fixed it. All I can go by is by what I know has been fact with myself and others I know, and I carry one every single day, during the summer.

    I saw many Taurus failures first hand as a gun range/store manager.

    I've had a stainless PT100 for several years now and it has never let me down. I'm not looking to get rid of it. Try to run some rounds through it if you can.

    The Taurus Beretta clones are actually highly regarded in some circles. Some folks prefer them b/c of the framed mounted safety.

    My collection is extremely varied...lots of different models - lots of manufacturers. I guess I must be a lucky dog b/c all my Taurus guns have been great. I've sold off a few over the years - not b/c they didn't work - just to fund other purchases.

    I still have

    9mm G2 = keeper - only plastic gun left in my collection actually
    PT1911 duotone = absolutely a keeper - tack driver
    Taurus 85 SS = will never part with it
    Taurus M327 snub - .327 magnum all steel snubby - way too versatile to ever consider selling

    I'm currently on the lookout for a Stainless PT909 = buy on sight.

    If you want it - buy it. If you hate it - sell it. I've always found its not the guns I buy that I regret, rather its the ones I did't buy that haunt me.


    EDIT - keep remembering more Taurus guns I still have hehe

    this here. I think that price is about what you would get in a private sale, so i wouldnt call it a deal. If they knocked 100 bucks off i would consider it.... but then again i would only sell it. I have zero love for taurus
