Default Curved Handgun?

Taurus has introduced the .380 "Curve." Laser and flashlights are built into the frame but the thing is curved. Why is it curved?

limits the print when it's in your pocket, conforms to the top of your thigh, makes it more comfortable for pocket carry

aside from that, I'll stick with my slim 9, though the integrated light and laser is nice, the laser avail. for my slim is godawful due to the shape of the trigger guard

I'm much, much too lazy right now to go find the patent, but if you read it, you will note that (as ironmike says), it a wearable gun.

snort. .. . zzzzzzz. zzz back to sleep now.

I know right, pistols are supposed to be bricks with sharp edges and wear holes in your pocket with the front sight!

But do they make a left curve model for wrong handed people?

lol, probably not, being the niche that it is, not sure I would have made a few thousand curved pistols for right handed shooters, and 10 left handed models

that being said if I get the chance to put one in my pocket for 400 or less I'd to it just for curiosity to see if I notice anything different vs my slim 9 which has pretty much safed my 25 and 380 mousers , haven't carried them two dozen times since I got the slim

Leave it to Taurus to come up with the answer to a problem that doesn't exist. Just stupid.
