    New Carry Gun Taurus 24/7 Pro C DS 9mm

    I've been waiting on my permit, which I finally received today, so I picked up the gun I've wanted for some time.

    Haven't had a chance to clean or shoot it yet, but here are the pics.







    Gun feels great, I'm pretty pleased. Let me know what you think.

    It had nothing but great reviews online and from all the different gun stores I went to, so I made the jump. I'm very pleased.

    Keep us informed if you will as you get a chance to spend time with it.
    I'm limited on funds & have been looking at some of the 9mm Taurus along that line.

    Nice looking gun. I've got a pro model and these guns are well built. I have heard nothing but good comments about these guns.

    Great gun!
    I carry a 45acp and my wife carries a 40s&w in the same model.

    I have the Pro with the 4.25" barrel. It's a sweet gun. Next purchase is the PT145 Millennium. A little easier to conceal. Taurus has come a long way.

    Hey everyone, thanks for the compliments. The gun feels just great, the ribber grips go a long way for the feel of this gun. The compact grip is small, but it's just big enough to accommodate my large hands (6'2", 200lb guy).

    It also came with a 13rd and 17rd magazine, the 17 rounder will be great for the range, and the 13 is perfect for CC.

    The trigger pull is long, but it engages at the very end. The pull feels great, but it is longer than most, admittedly. It takes some getting used to compared to a SAO gun. This gun is DA/SA, so you have to make some compromises there to get the best of both worlds.

    I've put about 200 rounds through an identical model at the range before I decided on it, and it was flawless. No failures, and it is very accurate for a compact.

    Many complain that it shoots low and left consistently, but this gun seems to correct itself at about 200rds, according to the guys at taurusarmed.

    The Pro C DS came with the Novak sights as opposed to the straight 8 (Heine) sights that are on the non DS models. DS adds the decocker to the safety which is engaged by pushing the safety up further past "safe".

    Overall, I am really pleased with this gun, other than the fact that it seems to have been dipped in lard (tons of packing grease) at the factory. I'm hoping to hit the range on Thursday or so, and I will let you all know how it shoots/feels.

    All comments/questions are welcome!

    What does the C DS stand for? Compact...??

    That second pic looks like you have a 3mm!

    Haha, It's a PT24/7 Pro C DS 9mm. What's not to understand? :)

    The C is for compact, meaning it is much smaller than the service size. It's a 3.3" barrel, I think...

    DS means decocking safety, so when I push the safety lever up past "safe", it decocks the firing pin and puts the pistol in Double Action mode. The other standard Pro (non DS) doesn't come with a decocking safety, just a manual safety with no decocking feature.

    Okay guys, here's the range report for today.I shot PMC Brass, and Remington UMC, both FMJ. Total, I shot 100 rounds, and my buddy shot a few as well.

    I really cannot find anything wrong with this gun, try as I might. The 100rds went down the range flawlessly, no failures/jams; it was perfect.

    The recoil was less than I expected for a compact 9mm; it was very manageable, and it allowed me to be very accurate.

    Overall, I give this gun an A for my first time out, seriously, it was brilliant. It's all cleaned up now, and here are the target pics.

    7 Yards:


    Above was my first target with the gun, getting used to how it shot.

    10 Yards:


    This one was better, with the three fliers at around 4 O'clock, belonging to my inexperienced friend.
    Enjoy

    Hey guys, just another update on the gun.

    Took it to the range again today, and it shot flawlessly through another 150 rounds. I didn't get a chance to snap a pic of the targets (forgot), but I actually shot much better than the targets above.

    I'm really liking this gun; it's light, accurate, and feels very well made. The gun is very tight, and I haven't had any issue yet. I hope this helps someone out!
