Taurus 24/7 Pro

I am thinking about buying a 24/7 Pro. Any one have any experience good or bad with this fire arm?
Thanks..

My wife bought one in 9mm for concealed carry, but she wound up trading it for a subcompact XD 9mm because she didn't like the trigger. I told her that she just needed some range time with it, but I think she got too used to the trigger on my 1911. Anyway, it definitely has a long trigger pull, but it resets really quickly so you can still get a bunch of shots off really quickly. For the money, they're great little guns.

I have one..... 40 cal. and I love it. Price was right, has all the safety stuff you could want, including chamber indicator and even a key for child safety lock. My wife shot it for the frist time at her CHL class and shot expert with it, no practice at all. For the money I don't know if there is a much better gun out there. Remember I said FOR THE MONEY! Mine is very accurate and nice to shoot.

Thanks for the info! I have an old china Type 54 in .38 super I have used as my daily CHL fire arm for almost 10 years now.
I was thinking for the price it would be ok the put in the glove box or in my work bag and not freak if it gets a scratch.
I also like the rail since I have to check the alarm in my warehouse if it go's off at night I could get a light for a couple hundred $$.

It would be a great gun for those purposes. Neither my wife nor I ever had any problems with the one that she bought, and I wouldn't have hesitated to rely on it as a CCW.

Its a good gun but fire it first, the straight 8 sights seem to be hit or miss with some people.

get the pt145 pro. Double stacked mag instead of single. Difference between the two are pretty small.

Great guns at a price should you bang it up or god forbid have to use it. That way you won't be out to much money.

My wife's 24/7 Pro in 9mm had double-stacked mags. It came with on 13-rounder and one 17-rounder. I don't know if they do anything differently with the 45 version, but I don't think so. I've always been under the impression that all the 24/7's were double stack.

I carry either the .40 or .45. Both are good guns and I have never had a problem shooting them 500 rounds each so far....
