I bought and I like!
My only purpose for the gun is SD. The gun is big and heavy and in no way practicle for CC (at least for me) I live in N. Idaho and some use it as grouse gun. At the range the 45 LC was very accurate and the stock grips help alot. In most 410 cals it's fine. When you however use the Winchester PDX1 ammo it's another ballgame. Most self defense shoots tend to be short range. This ammo is three disks followed by 12 bbs. Try it on a stump at 10ft and your jaw will drop.
In the night,from a deep sleep, startled by noise, you only have to point in the general direction to raise hell. Plus the stuff you send downrange runs out of gas fairly soon.
In a SD situation I want to cancel the threat not hurt the kid next door.
1st Tarus I have ever bought and happy w/my choice!
As a side note
I have a CCP and am very serious about thinking and training.
If you want to carry please shoot whenever you can. Learn all you can! Take classes, read books!
We as a group need to be there when the next columbine/Virg tech/ Gabby Giffords thing happens.
