I know alot of members here don't like Taurus pistols but I got to tell ya they've made a owner out of me ! I was teaching a CWP class yesterday and one of my students brought a compact 24/7 PRO in 9mm .....well I was asked to try it and I was preasently surprised . I have big hands but this little gun fit well in everyone's hands , the recoil minimal for a poly gun , the trigger not the usual long rough pull .......plus I shot a GREAT 3"-4" group (point shooting ) plus it comes with a 13rd & 17rd mag w/spacer . I would recommend this gun to anyone (IMHO) The rubber on the grip is a nice feel , the .45acp version out soon, which I will probally get but for now I just ordered a 9mm . Oh everyone in the class tried it and shot very well which mostly were new shooters .
