I understand why some people don't like the Taurus name, but they haven't been a throw away brand for quite some time. I own a PT92 and a 24/7 compact G2 9mm and absolutely love them. I went for the Taurus over the Beretta because of the transferable lifetime unlimited warranty and haven't regretted it a bit. I've fired at least a thousand rounds out of both and never had problem with either one no matter what brand ammo. The 24/7 has so many features I liked and conceals fairly easy while providing 14 rounds to work with. Don't let the old reputation steer you away from looking at a Taurus, you might be surprised with how accurate and reliable they are.
