No offense, but if you want intelligent answers try providing us with some actual information (type of gun, for example). For all we know you're having a problem with a plastic squirt pistol.

What may be happening is the hammer is following the slide. This is usually a problem with an improperly cut hammer and sear engagement. Return it to Taurus describing the problem. Its a situation that will likely get worse and can be dangerous as you could get an accidental discharge. You should be able to recreate the problem if you dropp the slide on an empty camber w/o a magazine in the pistol. Usually if its a sear engagement problme you'll get enough bounce on the gun so the hammer will fall off full cock when the slide is dropped without a magazine.

The other situation with the Taurus could be the decocking feature of the pistol itself. If it is faulty it could be decocking the gun as you fire it. It could also be that you are resting your thumb on the safety lever and could inadvertently be pushing it down enough to decock the pistol under recoil when shooting. In this case the solution will be to keep your thumb up or out and off the safety when shooting.

Why on earth would anyone want to fight you over your use of the language? Given that you're the one who brought it up, it seems that you're the one who has an issue with it.

Uh ... welcome to The High Road?

:confused: Now I'm confused. Perhaps you don't understand the working of the Taurus combination safety and decocking system. The 1911 type safety on the Taurus 92/99 acts as a typical cocked and locked safety when raised in the up position but when pushed down past the off position it will decock the pistol. So what exactly is wrong with my assessment of a potential cause of the original posters problem?

You may be limp wristing it, Taurus PT92 has problems if you don't keep a firm grip.

I was thinkinking the same thing. I mainly shoot my 1911 with a high thumb hold on the safety. On a couple of occasions I have decocked my Taurus 92c by pushing down on the decocker while firing the gun.

I love the Family Guy, welcome to THR.:cool:

p.s whats the average turnaround time on sending guns to taurus

p.s.s it seems to happen on rapid fire only most of the time
