    I was wondering which gun I should get. Between the pt24/7 pro and the pt .38s(super)? I heard the .38 is hard to find ammo for and the pt24/7 clip jams alot. Which one should I get?

    Why not stop by the introductions section?

    I don't care for the polymer taurus pistols at all,but I'll play.

    I would choose the one I could feed the easiest. Where will you buy your ammunition? What caliber? What are you going to use it for, home defense, carry, range only???

    When u say feed you mean load? Mostly for home use. The .38s is stainless steel. I will buy my ammo at a local gun store. The pt24/7 pro is a .45 cal and the pt.38s is a .38

    You CAN get the 24/7 in 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45acp. The cheapest would be 9mm (to feed it....ya know....guns eat ammmo....).

    Are you talking about a PT1911 in 38 super? :confused:

    38 super is mostly a special order round, here anyways.

    No its not a 1911. Is a .38 cal hard to find ammo for? Is a stainless steel gun better in any means? Its between a .45 cal and a .38

    He's talking about this: Taurus PT38 .38 super Stainless FS $393.00 SHIPS FREE

    To the OP, there are so many questions about you that would need to be known before any good answer could be given.

    Have you handled either gun? any gun?
    Have you shot either gun? any gun?
    Have you shot a .38? a 45? a polymer 45?

    What are you looking for in a pistol?

    Why are you limited to these 2 guns?

    I could go on and on... :D

    I handled the 24/7 n didnt like the feel of it as far as the quality then I saw the .38s and it looked more sturdy. Im looking for something mostly for home use but will become something to carry eventually. I was told the .38 cal is a hard cal to find ammo for but then told the opposite.

    No, you weren't. 38 super is what it is. The confusion started when you said .38 caliber, huge difference.

    I'm going back to my original answer and leaving it at that. Neither.
    Good luck.

    Brian is correct. Please re-read my answer and you will see that neither would be my choice.
    Not knowing your experience level, it is hard to suggest a handgun.

    What I believe a beginner should have is different that what others may think. Give up some info, and we will be glad to help.

    You'll get much better responses here if you are forthcoming with details.

    This really isn't a great place for "Which gun is better for me x or y?"

    This is a great place for: "This is my experience level, this is what I am looking for, these are the guns I am considering, which one would you recommend and/or would you recommend something else?"

    People will still indicate that choosing a gun is a personal thing and can't be done for you over the internet. However, if your goal is to educate yourself so that you can make the right decision for yourself, then you will find that information here.

    I really want to understand why you are limited to the two guns? Is someone giving you one of the 2? Are you just trying to settle a bet?

    I don't have a great deal of experience, however I did a ton of research in choosing my 1st gun. See here:

    http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f15/my-going-saga-purchase-gun-43772/

    I went with the Springfied Armory XD(M) 9mm, by the way.

    As for your predicament, I'm with the consensus that I would get neither. I've only shot one Taurus (the Millenium) and it was far and away the worst shooting gun of the 10 that I shot. I literally had no idea where the bullet would hit the target at 7-10 yards (other than low).

    There are Taurus fans who love their guns and have no issues whatsoever with them, so don't just go by what 3 people have said.

    In my opinion, above all, you should shoot the gun you intend to buy. They're not all the same and different people shoot different guns differently.

    Thanks everyone for the advice...im a beginner never shot a gun before and im looking for a beginner gun. The reason im with Taurus period is my father has had several taurus guns and nevet had any problems with them.,he just bought the pt1911ss. So to clear things up im looking for a non expensive beginner gun

    The .38Super is not a good round for inexperienced people.
    The best to learn the basics on (and cheapest) is a single action revolver in .22lr.
    You can not "spray and pray". It forces you to concentrate on the basics. Once the basics are mastered, then upgrade.
