    Gun looks like an outstanding carry weapon particularly for a female

    The gun felt good in hand, and I really hope it’s a win for them. They need a win after all the bad press they get. I’m looking forward to seeing Taurus at NRA next month for a follow up.

    Interesting to see a score of 4.3 out of 69 votes for a gun that’s never actually been released.

    It’s been nearly a year since Taurus announced this pistol. I’m not sure they plan on producing it. If I were on the market for another 380 I could buy a Glock 42 today & be happy. Or keep my Beretta Pico & be happy.
