I bought my first handgun
So the local Gander Mountain has a "Gun Blowout" with 5-40% off guns. I've been looking to buy one for a while now, so this came at a perfect time. I ended up buying a Taurus PT24/7 Pro in 9mm. Brand new gun, marked down from $399 to $310. A deal I couldn't resist.
Now for the bad news....I applied for the GM Mastercard to take an additional 5% off, but the computer went down, so it told the guy it would take 7-10 business days to review...grrr... I am considering just putting it on another credit card to get it before the weekend, even though I won't get the 5% discount. It's on layaway so nobody else can take it though

Boy... they'll let anyone have a gun these days

Can guns be 'pretty'? Nice looking pistol though. Hope the finish is good, when we had some S&W's made in Brazil, the finish was a bit shabby, to be polite.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

I was considering getting one of those not too long ago, but I keep getting mixed reports about Taurus... let me know what you think of it after a whileSURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING:

Kai, I have the PT 24/7 PRO in 40 and could not be happier with it. The only concern I have with mine is the finish on the back sight. The rest of the gun is fantastic. I have put probably 750-1000 rounds through mine and have yet to find a complaint. I use mine as an off duty weapon. You may have a hard time finding a good holster for it, took me a little while to find one that fit. Gimme a PM if you need any suggestions.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

I've shot the .45 ACP version and had no complaints with it. Someone told me years ago that the very early models of Taurus PT's had a frame cracking problem, but I think that was quickly corrected in the later models.
I just did a quick cursory search on Google about that, and see a lot of hear-say in forums but no real stories.
