What features does this gun have that appealed to you?             

It was small and fit well in my hand. I also liked the Taurus security system that allows you to lock the gun with a key.

Tell us about shooting this gun.

I was disappointed it has a very strong recoil, it’s hard to rack the slide and my rounds keep failing to load and fire. The slide stays open at 5th round almost every time with a bullet half way in the chamber. Very unsafe and very unreliable.

Please share: How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?  

It was small and fit well but the magazine release is very small and hard to reach. The slide lock has no grip and is very hard to push up with just my thumb.

How reliable is it?           

Not reliable at all. Every other round has given me a problem.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?    

I’ve only fired FMJ and they are not working well

Does the gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:             

Not that I know of.

What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?           

Everything. Its uncomfortable and unreliable.

Was it easy to take down and clean? Please share.         

Yes, very easy just watched a YouTube video on it.

Would you recommend this gun?            


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them? 

Don’t get it.
