    The only Taurus I ever owned worked well and I had no issues (PT101), but that was almost 20 years ago.

    Be prepared, there does not seem to be a lot of favorable opinions of Taurus on most forums.

    If you can, I would suggest you save up a little more money, and get the Beretta.

    I tend to agree with high pockets, if you are able save up the difference for a Beretta. Taurus is pretty hit and miss on overall quality. The PT 92 seems to be better than most Taurus models and one of the few I'd give any real consideration to but the Beretta would definitely be your best bet.

    My wife has a Taurus TCP .380.
    It shoots better and more accurately than my SW442.

    But that's not a fair comparison, is it? Nope.

    Next year I plan to get myself a TCP .380...but for about $150 more I can have a Beretta Pico or even Nano (which sounds better to me).

    But who knows? The more I shoot my wife's Taurus, the better I like it.

    YMMV

    My PT-92 was only Taurus of 3 that worked . My complaint way to big for a 9mm . Was not a carry concealed pistol. Going to carry that I carry my 29S&W 6 44 mags trump 9mm any time.

    First question you have ask yourself: can I save up enough, in the time I have, to purchase a Beretta? If not, then given Taurus' hit or miss reputation, would I feel comfortable defending my life with the Taurus? Am I comfortable in taking a chance on getting a problem free gun? Be absolutely honest with your self. Do a search of Taurus 92 and read the reviews carefully, knowing that everyone has their biases. Then make your decision.

    Had an old PT99, basically an adjustable sighted 92. It had been rode hard n put up wet by the time I acquired it but I liked it so much that I'll own another one. Shot good. Cycled anything I loaded it with. Too big for comfy ccw for my tastes but still a good piece. Keep an eye on the locking block for cracks, also the slide where it's the thinnest if it's a high round count gun like mine was.

    I have a Taurus PT92F that I bought in 1994. I had carried the Beretta in the Marines and wanted one when I got out but because I was working County Corrections and making $8.00 an hour I could afford the Taurus a lot easier. I liked the frame mounted safety and decocker on the Taurus and the fact I could carry it single action or double action. I carried it when doing prisoner medical runs and trusted it with my life and still would. It has never had a FTF or FTE, runs any ammo I have ever put in it. It is big to carry concealed (unless in the winter under a jacket). I don't know if the new ones have the same quality.

    One of their best guns. I had the PT 99 (adjustable sight version of the 92 ) and loved it. Had over 5000 rounds through it when I traded it on a Colt Mustang II. Honestly other than early and or special edition Berettas I prefer the Taurus because it has the controls in the right place on the frame. I highly recommend it!

    I have no personal experience with the PT92 but my advice would be that unless you are stealing the thing take your money and buy a Beretta. That being said, I have noticed that the PT92 tends to get more favorable reviews on gun boards than do most other Taurus offerings.

    I'm with everyone else. Wait a little longer and save up for the real thing and buy the Beretta.

    I forget which site it is, and I'm sure someone else here might be able to post it for you. But there's a site that sometimes gets in Police Issued Berettas from other Countries to sell. I think it would be cool to have a gun with Police markings from another Country.
