I have a Taurus PT 92. LOVE IT!!! Great target gun. It's very accurate and reliable. It's the gun I pack with me when I'm camping, riding ATV's, working on the farm, or just messing around the house. I bought it new for $420 two years ago.
Here it is.

I think the general verdict is that the kids in Brazil can make a good gun.

Precisely. It's not like Taurus is some new kid on the block. They've been around for a while and have put out their own unique products not excluding the Judge.

Is the trigger action the same? One thing about the Beretta -- they do have a smooth double action pull that I think is pretty close or on par with H&K and Sig Sauer. How does the Taurus compare?

I have a PT1911 that has been flawless, yet in thread after thread in the 1911 sub-forum you will be informed that Taurus is nothing but junk and you are a clueless for buying one. Taurus developed a bad rep early on but they have more than overcome that IMO.

And those same unforgiving people will say that Beretta 92 series slides blow off the frame from an incident that happened 30 years ago that has long been corrected, or that U.S. made Sig Sauers are unreliable even though that happened years ago and Exeter sells A LOT of Sig Sauers without problems, all CZ's jam, or that you should never buy a Glock 17 Gen 4 because of an early problem with the recoil assembly...

Yeah, some people need to get over things!

Couldn't have said it better myself. I have a P-07 as well and never had a FTF or FTE from it. In fact, until I bought my XD sub compact it was my carry weapon.
