    Most everyone knows I'm not a big Taurus fan but my heartache rests with their poly guns. Sold my P226 and made a few bucks off it so I wanted a "beater" hi-cap 9mm with rail and I prefer metal to plastic. Anyway, I found this two-tome Taurus PT 92 for the right deal and it came with 2 holsters (1 a Blackhawk Serpa), a laser, and 150 rounds of ammo. Yup, they're big and chunky but I've always liked the 92 (either Beretta or Taurus) as a fun range gun. Heck, 20 rounds of 9mm makes a good anti-zombie piece. Go ahead Cane and give me the facepalm...:D

    Sometimes it is nice to see what other people have to deal with.
    Sounds like you made a good deal.

    (but a Taurus?) :)

    Mine is a pre ban gun, way before they thought of putting a rail on them.

    19k downrange of every imaginable round, only failures due to being an inexperienced shooter, as it was the first semi auto I owned.

    What kind of deal did you get?

    I've always heard pretty good things about the PT92. Ya should be fine with it.

    I really wanted to hate the PT92, but we sold tons of them back in the day. The PT99's broke rear sights a lot, but the PT92s never came back. They are solid, accurate, reliable pistols. And way more durable than the P226.

    Good score, Dave.

    I've owned a couple of Taurus 92s as well as a couple Beretta 92s in the past and I kind of missed having one. Because of the frame mounted safety, I actually prefer the Taurus to the Beretta in this style platform. I did thin the herd last week as I sold 2 and traded for this one so I'm getting the collection down to keepers & shooters. I traded the XD40 I "found" for this one and considering the extras I got, I probably have about $300 in this one. Not a killer deal but I really didn't need the XD and now I'm back to no more plastic in the collection.

    So y'all don't think I've lost my grip on reality, I see the Sig P226 as one of the finest full-size 9mm guns ever made. No, this Taurus is not the equal of the Sig but I couldn't really justify having near $700 tied up in a range blaster. The difference in value basically paid for my new .22 rifle - so I'm happy...

    I had one back around '89. Good gun as I remember. I also preferred the position of the safety.

    Glad to see someone has stepped up to take over as grammar/spelling NAZI. I was getting too many negative PM's so I had to lay off.

    Way to go Glass! Good catch.

    I was afraid to say anything for fear of the wrath of Dave, which can be quite intense. :eek:
