Finally shot my Taurus 24/7 G2 .40 yesterday. Took it to a nice little indoor range in town. I'm definitely a novice shooter/owner, as this is the first gun I've purchased myself (not given by my dad).
It did come packed in grease, so be prepared to clean it up before you shoot it!!! Gun has a good weight and balance with a loaded clip. Top heavy without (since it's polymer). Slide is HEFTY. Gotta workout my grip in the gym to get used to pulling that dude back! Trigger pull doesn't feel heavy and doesn't feel light. For me it seems right on the money. It is DA/SA, which I don't fully understand. The trigger pull when it's in SA is much shorter. (I wasn't sure how to keep it in SA mode). I just pull the slide, aim, shoot til it clicks! My shots were all over the place of course, because I hadn't shot a pistol in 3 years.
Guns & Ammo said the trigger had a gritty drag at the end, but I didn't notice. Then again I'm a novice. My groupings were low and right of the target, so I need to practice more and perhaps adjust the sights a click. It seemed like the gun fell back into place very well after squeezing the trigger, kind of like a glock does. I was shooting 165 grain, so it was breathing plenty of fire. Didn't bark like a .45 of course, so it's going to be a good one for myself and the little wifey.
The only thing I don't like is the little groove on the bottom of the grip. It looks like an insert for a wrist strap or something weird? The edges are sharp and you can start to feel it grooving into your palm after shooting a while. It's certainly a minor gripe. Got it all disassembled and cleaned up. As far as I can tell it breaks down easily enough! Love dealing with Buds!
