The little Tauras is the same weight (19oz) as the Khar CW9 and I would guess it is very close in other dimensions. Moreover, the price is about the same. Locally the CW9 is $389. That should not be much less than the street price for the Taurus. It should be an interesting face-off between the two guns. The questions will be which gun has the greater dependability, the better trigger, the better ergonomics, and the least perceived recoil?
