I go back and forth on this one. It was my very first gun purchase (I now own 8) 2 years ago. I got my concealed carry license and bought a couple of in-pocket holsters for it and carried it with me almost every day. It is a PERFECT size for a pocket pistol. I could easily carry it in my front jeans pocket, but it really fit best in the front top pockets of my cargo shorts. Very nice summer-time CC pistol.

Unfortunately, it managed to malfunction twice while at a gun range. The first time it malfunctioned was after about 200 or 300 rounds (total, not that trip) - it stopped extracting some of the spent rounds which caused an FTE and a FTF. I shipped it to Taurus. They examined it and determined that it was a problem with the extractor, which they replaced. Received my gun back and it fired like new again. The next time was after about 700 rounds. Heard a weird "pop!" when I fired it and the entire gun was jammed. When I pulled out the magazine a small piece of metal (a piece of the actual gun, maybe?) fell out. I've shipped it back and it's waiting for repair. Sure, the repairs are free. But FedEx wants $69 every time I ship it since they will only send firearms overnight. So I've invested $138 on shipping a gun in for repair that only costs (at the moment) $180? If I have to return it a third time I'm in the red.

I ended-up purchasing a Sig Sauer P238 as my every-day CC. I'll keep this around as a spare gun to have laying around the house but with the issues I've experienced I just wouldn't trust my life to it.

Buds and shipping was good as always. This is a cool little pocket rocket and the price was UNBEATABLE. This will most likely be my summertime CC gun. And anyone who has a doubt, you shouldn't have any doubts in Taurus firearms. I've owned multiple Tauri, never had a single problem. Most people with Taurus issues are self inflicted.

I was very excited to get my first hand gun, the gun would never fire unless my husband pulled the trigger. When I tried to fire the gun I noticed the hammer wasn't dropping even when the trigger was bottomed out, I took it to my local gun smith and he said my trigger arm was made too long. Luckily taurus has a life time repair policy, in which I sent it back to them for repair and my gun still isn't even in repair status 2wks later. Not sure if it's just my luck or they have a lot to repair!!
