I will begin by saying that I had never even touched a Pistol before purchasing the Taurus 24/7 OSS. All the information I had about firearms came from a few weeks worth of research. I chose this pistol because other than this particular site it has been getting some decent reviews, it has a a lot of safety features, and it was less than $400.
The pistol came in a decent quality case. When I opened it up the case had foam fittings for all the materials (pistol, magazines, loader, Taurus keys, cleaning brush), and also came with a lifetime warranty card, and full color manual.
Stripping the pistol down for the first initial cleaning was very simple. I was surprised how easy it was for someone who had never even touched a handgun. After striping it down every part was in perfect condition, and all of the functions(safety,decocker,Taurus lock) were in working order. The magazines dropped free and the slide was in great condition also.
After cleaning it I took it to my local firing range to give it a try. I was able to fire 100 rounds of PMC FMJ's without a single issue. As far as accuracy goes, I was a little all over the place with the first 36 rounds, but this was due to me not realizing the pull the pistol would have when being fired, and that it was hot as hell, so my glasses kept fogging up. After those first three magazines I was able to figure out how to handle the pistol, and control the fogging issue. All of my groupings were within 4in, so I was extremely happy with that, being it was my first time firing a handgun. NO LOW AND LEFT ISSUES AT ALL.
Overall I am extremely satisfied with my first handgun purchase, and cant wait to get my Taurus 24/7 OSS back to the range!!!! Thank you Buds for selling a great product at a great price!
