Taurus 809 9MM SS 17+1
by Jacob B Date Added: Friday 01 February, 2013
Got my 809 today. Please be extremely careful, BOTH Bud's and all customers. I was expecting a full-size 809 and opened the box at my FFL to discover that I got an 809c, which is the compact version. This surprised me and disappointed me because I shoot left handed, so I was looking forward to ambi. features like the decocker/safety and the slide release simply for ease of use. With that being said, I think I will just keep it because there are very few differences between the compact and full fact, the ambi. features are the only things I can think of that do not come on the compact pistol. You still get a standard 13 round mag, and high cap. 17 round mag, barrel brush, mag load assister, and some key-tools that operate Taurus's safety feature on the firearm. I still have not shot it, but plan on running a couple of rounds through it this weekend. I HIGHLY recommend this pistol. In fact, I think the 800 series is the best pistol on the market for under 400 bucks. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise on the build quality of this gun, it is very exceptional. The feel and balance of the gun is great. It fits my hand perfectly with the high cap. mag and has just enough room for my pinky with the standard mag. Overall, great gun for the money and a good choice for CC if you are thinking about that. This is the main reason I will keep the compact. The full size version of this gun is very nice, but quite large at the same time and would be difficult to CC with ease and comfort. After all, you get the same mags and accessories with the compact model. I can still work the right-handed features on the compact with my left hand fairly easily via the index/trigger finger. The only other con to this firearm is the mag release is pretty tough. I have to push on the bottom of the mag to make it release easier, but I'm sure it will break in after a while.
