    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.

    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 :p

    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.

    10 years from now we'll be saying either "oh... you bought one of those" in a knowing, sympathetic tone. Or we'll be scrambling to find one of the most collectible guns of this decade.

    I will stick to my Kel Tec 380. I have a holster that curves. I don't need all the gadgets either. I got a 380 for a lightweight pistol that doesn't print.

    Just saw this in a magazine, looks like a gimmick. I get they are trying to be innovators, but failed. I'll stick to slim compact pistols.

    The heck with John Moses Browning. . . . We need more guns designed by Salvador Dali. !

    This will be marketed under the same notion as the titanium/scandium uber lightweight monster caliber revolvers.

    Intended to be carried often but rarely fired.

    The intent is innovative but I don't see it catching on.

    Good for Taurus for not ripping off someone else's design. But, having said that, I think they need to think harder.

    I have been looking and waiting for one specific Raging Judge for five months now, and cannot buy one yet.

    Taurus, quit screwing around with fringe weapons like this, and increase production on the ones on which demand ALREADY far outstrips supply!!

    Sure looks like it would tuck in tight and minimize printing when concealed.

    Yeah, there are other manufacturers that could take the same advice as well.
