    my favorite LGS is actually a pawn shop. On the 7th they are having a blow out. They have a Taurus pt92af for 200 and a cw9 for 250. Obviously they are different purpose guns. I have a 92s already and a Canik C100 on layaway. So that’s a full and medium size. I don’t have a smaller nine. So there is that. But I’ve wanted the Taurus a while now.

    Those Kahrs pop up all the time, anyway.

    I remember when the Kahr first came out in the 90s. I think Thompson bought them.

    One of my motives in the Taurus is my mom has one. I have a 92s and If my kid has one we can get mags that will feed all three.

    I have a Kahr CM9 and it's a regular in my EDC rotation. Great little DAO 9mm.

    Can you put the Taurus PT92 on layaway?

    Is there a chance they'd take $400 for both?

    About 20 years ago when I got my carry permit, the instructor was a retired cop and he used a Taurus 92 and thought very highly of it.

    My dad uses a Berett 92 and loves that pistol. If you can only get one, my vote is for the Taurus.

    Get the Taurus there is better options for a small 9mm many cheaper than 250

    I have had my Taurus PT99 (same as 92, but with adjustable sights) for almost 30 years. It's still a good shooter. Likely I will wear out before it does.

    Like OARNGESI said, $250 for a small 9mm isn't that great of a deal anyway.

    Sometimes. Maybe a tick more if new. I paid that for my CW45 a few months ago, though it was used. Bud's had 'em new for maybe $300 at the time.

    But, yeah, as has been said, a $250 pocket-nine isn't a huge deal anymore. There has never been a better time than now to buy defense-oriented handguns. I can't believe what's happened to their prices.

    Yeah I opted for the 200 dollar 92AF. I will look for a pocket nine eventually. But I’m thinking that roll may be filled by the Canik C100. It won’t pocket carry but it will cc.
