    At 429 bucks its hard to complain about.
    15 round plus a 19 round mag.
    Has anybody had any problems with one?

    Do you mean a Taurus 92 (very similar to the Beretta 92)? I've never heard of the Taurus 91, but I don't know everything I suppose.

    If you're talking about the Taurus 92, I had a model 99 a few years ago (same model but with adjustable rear sights) that functioned flawlessly and proved accurate. However, like the Beretta, this model doesn't fit my hand, so I traded it for something else. Overall a fine pistol.

    Nice Gun!

    I Have been contemplating ordering one. They are supposed to be Extremely accurate and reliable according to any review I have seen. Please let me know how yours shoots. I have a New Taurus PT845. It is a 4 inch .45 based off the Taurus 24/7 platform, only it has Novak sights and is Hammer Fired. To me it also has a Better Grip. I have owned a Taurus 24/7 .45acp for years and it has been a Great Gun.

    The Best to You and Yours!

    Range Report

    I used Federal,Winchester, some Academy Russian steel case and Blazer CCI's and even one clip on NATO
    One one jam on the steel case.
    At 10 yards I was shooting low and the left but I have always that way with autos....dont think it the 917
    I put about 250 rounds through it.
    So far so good...Its has some weight to it with a full clip, but to me thats a good thing.
    So far it was 429.00 dollars well spent.
    I was looking at a Smith auto 5906 but at 600.00 price range I can buy lots of extra ammo.
    Plus I bought one at a gun show in 1990 and it was a Jam-o-matic and sold it.
    I have owned 2 other Taurus's a 380 Auto and Model 66
    Both worked great and no problems, I cant remember why I even sold them.
    I think it was 6 inch barrel on the 66 and I wanted a 3/4 inch.
    From what I read I see more hate of Kimber and Automags than Taurus.
    I can speak from expericence on the 22 mag AMT, it made a good paper weight.
