For years, I wanted to buy my wife something to carry. In this day and age, you should have a gun within reach at all times, no exception.
I shopped and shopped for something that would be small enough to stick in a purse or a pocket and not be a hindrance, but also provide enough knockdown power. There were a lot of good options out there, but price was also an issue for me. I really wanted a Ruger LCP, and despite being an affordable gun, it was still out of my reach.
One day, I received a flyer from Gander Mountain saying they were selling these things for $199.99. I hadn't even considered Taurus because, frankly, I had heard that they were a cheaply made gun. But, after asking around, people had given me great reviews on them, based upon some changes they had made.
You can find info on Taurus' Site here:

|Barrel Length: 2.84"|

I went down and picked one up. I couldn't say no to a $200 pocket pistol.
- It features a 10.2 ounce weight and a 6+1 double stack.
- It fits in your front pocket. Literally. I have carried it tons of places, from weddings to family functions
- Price point
- Good fit and finish
- Long trigger pull
- This can throw accuracy off
- Loud...REAL loud
