So here we go (flamesuit on). I picked up my first Taurus yesterday and proceeded to the range to test her out. It came with 11 and 15 round mags (my apologies to the communist states). I fed it 200 rounds of 180gr FMJ and another 50 rounds of Gold Dots. It ate all of the above flawlessly, no jams, ftf, fte or anything. The ribber grip is very comfortable but does feel slightly awkward with the 15 rounder. The Straight 8 sights were a little tricky to get the hang of, but by the time I left, I was making ragged holes with 10 shot groups at 10 yards. I did manage to get a decent deal as I bought it at the same time as my other halfs Ruger P95. For the price, I'm pretty impressed. The only thing I wish it included was a decocker, but there is little difference between SA and DA pull.

I have a 24/7 Pro C in .40 also. I've had mine for about 1 1/2 years and have shot a few thousand rounds of reloads through it without any problems. It took me a while to get use to the long trigger pull and the sites since I'm used to single action 1911 type pistols. Overall I am very happy with mine also.

I am glad you like the 24/7. I looked over one at the gun shop a while back. I thought I would have to come back the next day to finish the trigger pull.
