Got this fast and at a great deal here at Buds but thats not why I'm writing this review, I have owned a few hand guns and this is my first TARUS. 9mm is my cal of choice, that is one reason I tried this out, and it's the cheapest Hi Cap 9mm I could find. I would love to have a Para but on a budget this is a decent ccw, target rec., or home defense. I prefer a 40 - 45cal for ccw for personal protection. Like some of the other reviews state the last (17th) round is difficult to load into clip. 16 is plenty. If I had of seen the other Taurus 24/7LS-9B-17 9mm 3D LNG 17RD Blued I would have gotten it instead. Maybe next time.
Went to the range and got some advice that really did help my accuarcy and also adj. front sight it was a bit off.
This gun has some recoil also noticed a big difference in recoil ussing different ammo.
Feels good to hold and shoot, but I have big hands, and if this was to be used by a female hope she has big hands also
I held a 4" pattern shot zone at 20 yards (that was taking my time amming)
I kept all shots in hit box firing at will at 20 yards.
overall this was a surprisingly accurate and fun to shoot firearm
WITH SEMI AUTO PISTOLS IT IS GOOD TO GET IN THE HABIT OF PUTTING THE SAFTEY ON AT ALL TIMES ALWAYS BE SAFE (these are very dangerous when a bullet chambered an accident can easily happen)
