    I made that mistake, then I made it again. Shame on me. Once I got mine back fixed, I promptly sold them and got weapons with a better reliability track record. Good luck with your choice.

    Let this be the signal that it is time to move on to a better class for defensive weapon. When it comes back, sell it or trade it in on a Glock or an XD or an M&P or several other higher quality defensive weapons.

    Taurus will make it right. It'll take 2 months but they will make it right. It took them almost 3 months to replace a Rossi revolver I had that broke the hammer pivot pin after only having it 2 weeks.

    Sure gives you a heck of a better option than throwing your non-functional weapon as the only projectile you have a chance at throwing at the BG....
    If I have the options of a slim chance & no chance I will take the slim chance every time... You?

    Take comfort in knowing it can be reincarnated as a Glock, M&P, or Springfield.

    I also had a problem with my first and last Taurus PT-709! When firing it at the range the recoil spring snapped and was wobbling around! Called them up and they wanted to charge me for a replacement spring! Got the spring and it seems to be OK!

    + 1 on that one. My first pistol purchase was a 24/7 9mm. What a piece of junk. Lifetime warranty or not, they're junk. And I think the term lifetime in "Lifetime Warranty" means after you send it in, you'll get back at some point in your lifetime.

    I sold it and got a SIG P250. Then another, then another, and I just ordered another. Nuff' said.

    Well, my wife has the SIG P238. She likes it. But I wanted something really small. I think people around here use the term "bug." Basically, I carry my Glock 90% of the time. But in certain circumstances when I need something easier and more comfortable to conceal, I carry the Taurus. For example, when I go to Church I don't really want to be printing with my Glock in an OWB especially in the type of clothes I wear to church. On the other hand, I don't want to be sitting for an hour or two with my Glock in an IWB. That is too uncomfortable. So the little Taurus was always a good compromise to wear in a low-risk situation where comfort is going to take priority over function.

    So the only 3 guns I was aware of that were small enough for this category were the Ruger LCP, the Taurus TCP, and the Kel Tec P3AT. I've read tons of reviews and pretty much everyone says the same thing: None of these 3 guns are particularly reliable or easy to shoot. That being the case, and that I liked the fact that the Taurus had a slide release on it, I went with that one. And it has served me well for a year and a half without a single malfunction, up until 2 weeks ago.

    I'm tempted to go out and buy another little gun of some kind, maybe even another Taurus. As long as I can take it to the range and put 50 rounds through it with no malfunctions, I'll feel confident to carry it. When my other one comes back from repair I could either keep it as a backup-backup, or sell it. At the moment my Walther P22 has taken its place and I used it just last night at a family gathering where I didn't want to carry my Glock.

    I think your data is skewed regarding the reliability of the LCP and the P3AT. My observations are subjective, but my impression is that the TCP is by far the most unreliable.

    I wouldn't say that I enjoy shooting the LCP, but it's more accurate than I am and has been shrugging off daily abuse for over two years now on original parts and a perfect performance record. The reason that I originally chose it was for its reputed reliability.

    The difference between the LCP, P3AT, and TCP is that two of the manufacturers ( Ruger and Keltec) will fix your weapon expediently and professionally and give you great customer service, and when it comes back.... it won't have other issues..... the third manufacturer (Taurus) .... well, just deal with them once. You will get my drift.
